What is Reiki?
Reiki is an ancient Tibetan healing technique that dates back 2500 years. It was a lost, art, rediscovered by a Japanese Tendai Buddist Monk, Mikao Usui. Reiki is a vibrational, or subtle energy, therapy facilitated by light touch which balances the biofield and strengthens the person’s own ability to heal; mentally, emotionally, and physically. Reiki brings profound peace and clarity to the receiver and strengthens one’s own connection to spirit or life force energy.
What happens during a Reiki session?
During a Reiki session, the client lies fully clothed and rested while the practitioner’s hands are place on or directly above the body using the chakras or energy centers as an initial guide. Reiki is introduce at the feet and moves through the body. Energy is drawn into areas of the body that are tight painful, or energetically dormant. Each Reiki Master interprets the energy flow uniquely and will share with you what is learned from the session.
What might I experience during a Reiki session?
Each individual has unique way in which they store stress in the body. Often times, emotional and mental stress manifests physically in the body as psychic unrest, physical pain, weakness or disease. One might feel a tingling, pulsing, popping or heating sensation as these energetic blockages are released. The client might feel the shift in energy in the form of twitching or involuntary movement, the gaining of an intuitive knowledge, or an experience of deep peace and relaxation. Each person will have a unique experience.
A Reiki session results in a three prong shift in the individual:
The hands-on channeling of Reiki energy enables the individual to experience a deep feeling of relaxation as tense muscles are released.
The individual often experiences a clearing of the mind, in which the conscious and unconscious though processes are brought to the surface. At times, clients feel the need to talk freely and openly during a session and at other times, silence is preferred. A supportive, non-judgmental, therapeutic approach is offered under both circumstances.
The “heart” of a Reiki healing session enables the individual to experience an authentic feeling of inner peace, understanding, and knowing.
