The word “Reiki” translates from the Japanese words “Rei” and “Ki” and means “Universal Life Force Energy”.
Reiki works on the spiritual, mental and physical by accessing the energy systems of the body helping to realign and release congested areas. This assists the body’s self healing process and is also extremely relaxing.
Reiki techniques are effective in helping with mental health problems such as trauma, stress and depression, physical health problems which are causing pain and discomfort and diseases which result from a low immune system.
When a person receives a Reiki treatment, the Rei part of the energy assesses where the person has blocks and then directs the healing energy, usually to the block that is nearest the hands. However, sometimes it will go to the block that is most important even if it is far from the hands.
The Reiki energy then works with the negative thoughts and feelings that are blocking one's natural flow of Ki and heals them as well. This can happen in a number of ways. By flowing through the affected parts of the energy field and charging them with positive energy, Reiki raises the vibratory level in and around the physical body where the negative thoughts and feelings are attached. This causes the negative energy to break apart and fall away. In so doing Reiki clears, straightens and heals the energy pathways, thus allowing healthy Ki to flow in a natural way.
Sometimes the entire blocking energy is lifted up to a higher field of energy where it is processed. Other times, it is melted away or burned up. When a block is released, a person can sometimes feel a cold sensation and when it is melted or burned up, a hot sensation. Once Ki is flowing naturally, the physical organs and tissues are then able to complete their healing process.
A Reiki treatment is conducted with the client either laying down or sitting comfortably depending on their needs. This gentle touch technique releases stress, relaxing the body and can help to calm an active mind. As a colour practitioner I blend colour & essences into the session to deepen and empower the process. These sessions are non-invasive and non-diagnostic making them suitable for anybody, in particular those suffering the effects of stress and anxiety or undergoing or recovering from medical treatment.
As a Reiki master teacher I offer short courses for those who would like to learn Reiki and have the attunements to enable then to channel this wonderful energy initially for themselves with level one then to give to others through the level two attunements.
