Reiki (ray-key) is an ancient, natural healing technique. A Reiki student receives her/his healing ability through an ‘attunement’ or empowerment process. Reiki has its own intelligence and is multi-dimensional. It is not directed by the practitioner and the energy goes where it is needed. Reiki energy goes to the cause of a problem wherever it exists – body, mind, or spirit. During a Reiki treatment the practitioner places his/her hands above, or on the client’s head, shoulders, stomach, knees and feet. Other hand positions are used for specific conditions. Each position is held 2 to 5 minutes. A treatment lasts 30 to 90 minutes. Reiki enables the body’s energy to flow freely and greatly assists the healing process, clearing blockages and releasing toxins in the body. It provides a sense of clarity and calm.
People who receive Reiki before or after surgery heal more quickly. A treatment creates a wonderful radiance. You will feel very relaxed during a session, often to the point of falling asleep. Reiki is powerful, yet gentle. In its long history, Reiki has been used to assist healing virtually every known illness and injury including cancer, heart disease, skin problems, cuts, broken bones, headaches, colds, sunburn, insect bites, insomnia, depression, lack of confidence, and many other illnesses and symptoms.
