Reiki is a Japanese technique that promotes healing through stress reduction and relaxation. It is delivered by laying hands on a person’s body and it uses the energy that exists in everything around us, that flows through every living creature, that which makes us alive! If your energy is low, then this makes you more likely to get sick or feel stress, and if it is high, we are more capable of being happy and healthy.
Firstly, it should be noted that Reiki can be learned by anyone. It really is a very simple technique. It is a self-improvement technique, so anybody can do that!!! Though Reiki is *taught* per se, the ability to channel Reiki already exists in each of us – it just is awakened in the student during a Reiki class. The ability is awakened during an “attunement” given by a Reiki master, thus allowing the student to access the endless supply of “life force energy” to channel for the greater good of themselves or others!
What does a session look like?
Receiving Reiki is a very simple process. The session begins with you lying on your back on a massage table, fully clothed, while listening to serene music, in order to help you relax and feel comfortable. I will then gently lay my hands upon you, in a series of different positions, from the crown of the head to the feet. If preferred, no touching at all need be done – the hands can be held a few inches above the body, with the same benefits resulting from the treatment.
