"What is Reiki?" This is a common question asked.
Reiki is universal life energy
Reiki is a Japanese technique used for stress reduction, relaxation and increases the self-healing process. This healing energy flows through the hands of the Reiki Practitioner into the person receiving it. Reiki clears and heals the energy of the receiver, allowing universal life energy to flow more naturally.
Reiki is completely safe and can never cause any harm. The purpose of Reiki is to send increased energy which the receiver's body can use for its own self-healing. Illness can occur when there is an imbalance of energies within the body. Reiki supports medical treatments or other alternative healing methods.
"What happens during a Reiki session?"
You will be fully clothed, with exception of removing your shoes. During Reiki, each individual's experience can vary. Some recipients of Reiki feel an incredible amount of heat, especially in certain areas. Some experience peaceful, relaxing energy. Others have felt vibration, wave-like energy, or the sensation of gentle rocking. Each individual experience is unique. Healing is always taking place, whether you are experiencing any of the above statements. I like to describe Reiki as if your peeling back layers, like an onion. Think of an onion and all the layers it has; when you peel the layers one-by-one, you reach the center. Reiki gently heals individual layers in each session for personal growth. Each session will gently peel back whatever 'layer' needs healing at that moment. With each Reiki session, it promotes & increases the self-healing process.
