What is Reiki?
Reiki is a Japanese technique that is used to heal physical and mental trauma, and to support mental clarity and spiritual well-being. In Japanese, the word "rei" refers to a higher intelligence that permeates all living and non-living entities and guides the inherent functioning of the universe. The word "ki" refers to the nonphysical energy that flows through everything that is alive, including plants, animals, and human beings—because of this, ki is also often called "life force energy," and is known as qi or chi from other lineages. The combination of these two words is what defines reiki as "spiritually guided life-force energy."
Why do people get Reiki?
People use Reiki to relax and strengthen their wellbeing; reduce pain, anxiety, and fatigue; help manage symptoms; reduce side effects of medications; and support recovery after injuries or surgery.
Reiki is a good integrative therapy to try because people generally start feeling better very quickly with Reiki. As anxiety and pain lessen, and people feel hopeful about regaining their health, they feel more able to incorporate other needed health interventions or make needed lifestyle changes. Reiki therapy often clears the mind, enabling patients to better evaluate the sometimes conflicting medical information being offered by various specialists, so they can make important treatment decisions with greater confidence. In this way, Reiki can help people become more actively involved in their own health.
Reiki can be received from someone else (either a friend, healthcare provider, or Reiki professional), or it can be learned by all who want to practice Reiki on themselves.
What to expect during a Reiki Session.
A consultation will be taken on your first visit to establish an overall picture of your general health and lifestyle. You will then be asked to get comfortable on the massage table - after removing your shoes. As Reiki is exceedingly relaxing it is advisable to have a blanket over you as your core body temperature will drop and you don't want to get too cold during the session. Each session will be slightly different but usually starting at the head and moving around the body. Touch will either be non-existent or very light. You may experience sensations throughout the session - or - as in most cases - experience a feeling of total relaxation.
