What Happens During a Session?

AReiki therapy session is non-diagnostic, non-interventionist, non-manipulative and no pressure is applied (physical or otherwise).  Receiving Reiki is a relaxing, revitalising and balancing experience for the whole being.

The flow of Reiki is activated by intention and is channelled for the health, recovery and higher good of the recipient.  Subconsciously the receiver will draw in as much energy as they need as I lay my hands gently on or over the body or sometimes from a distance.  Every session is different with some recipient experiencing sensations of heat, cold, colours or tingling.  Every recipient, whether human or animal,  experiences deep relaxation and often fall fast asleep during the session!

What is Reiki

You may not always be aware of it but you are surrounded by energy every single second of your life.  The stresses and strains of modern day living can sometimes keep you so occupied that you don't notice it's there but everything that you can see, hear, smell, taste, feel and sense is made of energy in some form or other.
Remember the last thunderstorm you were in.  Remember your reaction to it?  The energy swirling around you.  The flash of the lightening that makes you jump. The rumble of thunder that you can almost feel in your tummy. The mixture of excitement and fear that you feel no matter how old you are!  Sometimes it takes a thunderstorm to awaken you to the energy that is always there.
This life force of energy constantly surrounds you, flowing through you and all living things and is vital for your well being.  In India it is called ‘prana’, in china it is ‘chi’, in Europe it is ‘elan vital’ and in Japan it is ‘ki’.



The scientific world accepts that all matter is fundamentally bundles of energy, vibrating at different speeds.  Energy with a slow vibration appears to us as solid and immovable like a rock or the ground we walk on.  Energy with a faster vibration can not necessarily be seen but we can feel the wind whether as a gentle summer’s breeze or a blustery autumn day. 

Scientists have long been studying this life force and how it works within you and your body.  It is accepted that ki (or chi) enters your body through the top of your head (where the crown chakra is) and works through the meridians within your body and exiting through the palms of your hands.  Your own energy field (or aura) can be detected by electromagnetic measuring instruments and can even be photographed.  Eastern medicine has long recognised and worked with this energy and Acupuncture and Yoga are both based on the free-flow of this energy within you. 

Throughoutthe world’s cultures you will find different types of energy healing whether hands on or not.  Reiki (pronounced Ray-Key) is one such method of energy healing and can be translated as ‘universal life force’.  It is a simple yet powerful method of natural healing energy activated by intention which was rediscovered and developed by Dr Mikao Usui in the early 1900’s in Japan. 

Reikiis a safe, non-invasive energy therapy that can be used alongside other complimentary therapies and orthodox medicine treating you holistically  restoring homeostasis. Reiki is free of religious or cultural belief systems and whatever you believe in, Reiki will always work for the best of you.  Reiki will give you whatever it is that you need for your mental, spiritual, emotional and physical well-being. 

If our bodies are energy and we are surrounded by energy and we can pass energy through our bodies to other living organisms, then it makes sense to treat not just the physical symptom but the energy of a living being as well.
