Reiki is a form of energy healing, where the practitioner allows universal life force energy to flow through her/his hands to the client. Reiki can help lessen the impact of stress, release tension and help to restore balance in body, mind and spirit. It may also help to kick-start or boost the body's own healing mechanisms to begin functioning more effectively.
The client may feel warmth, tingling, and may experience emotions, re-surfacing of memories, or simply feel pleasantly relaxed, as if in meditation.
What happens during a treatment?
The client may sit in a chair or lie on a treatment couch. She/he will be asked to remove jewellery, watches, belts and shoes, but otherwise remain fully clothed. The practitioner will place hands gently on a number of positions on the client’s body. There is no pressure or manipulation, only the transmission of life force energy.
