Reiki is a healing technique based on the principle that the therapist can channel energy into the patient by means of touch, to activate the natural healing processes of the patient’s body and restore physical and emotional well-being. Reiki balances the energy in the body, and we can also use the energy to clear “blockages” – stored up emotions, tension or pain.
Some people fall asleep during a treatment. Some people may experience twitching or releasing in their physical body. And sometimes an emotional release takes place – from laughing to crying.
Reiki is Love & Light
To me, Reiki is, and always has been, Love & Light. I approach each session with a gentle and receptive energy so that my clients feel comfortable, loved and respected. I work to clear my own energy daily in order to be a pure vessel through which Reiki can flow.
Hands are placed either on the body, or hover slightly above the body, depending on the comfort level of the client. Clients report feeling a range of sensations, from tingling, to feeling warm, to deep relaxation. Treatments are done fully clothed.
When you receive Reiki, you will feel a comforting sense of well-being. Some people say they feel tingling sensations or warmth.
