Reiki means “universal life energy”. A balanced flow of energy is said to provide a sense of wellbeing and spiritual renewal. Those who practise reiki are said to draw upon universal healing energy, which is then transferred to the client through visualisation and by gently placing their hands on or just above the body.
What to Expect
Reiki is a non-invasive therapy. Your practitioner will use energy flow from their hands to rebalance each of your energy centres. You will remain fully clothed, lying on a massage couch or sitting on a chair. The practitioner will either place their hands on above your body, using their intuition to guide energy flow. Your whole body may be treated or just specific parts, depending on where imbalances are thought to lie. Reiki may also be used remotely, with the recipient’s consent.
Benefits of Reiki
Reiki is often described as a very relaxing and peaceful treatment, which helps to restore a sense of balance and well-being within the mind and body. Due to the very gentle nature of this treatment, it is often used to support those receiving conventional medical care in hospitals, hospices or at home.
