The word Reiki (pronounced Ray-Key) is a Japanese holistic, light-touch, energy-based modality. Working as a support mechanism to the body, Reiki re-establishes a normal energy flow of ki (life force energy) throughout the system, which in turn can enhance and accelerate the body's innate healing ability. Through a series of hand positions either directly on or just above the body, the energy worker allows for the flow of energy through their body. The client's body then draws off the amount of energy that is required. The simplicity of a Reiki session may raise some skepticism; however, after experiencing it, many clients keep coming back for more of those enlightening feelings. Reiki is simple and produces measurable results. It is power, light and love.
Reiki is good for helping to relieve stress, anxiety, muscle pain, arthritic pain, edema, headaches, digestion concerns and much more.
Research has shown that Reiki is becoming more widely accepted by western medicine and cancer clinics as a way of easing stress and trauma done to the body by Chemotherapy.
After a session it is recommended that the client rest for about 15 minutes and hydrate with a glass of water. It is possible that the client may feel light headed and should take their time – don’t feel rushed!
