What is Reiki?

Reiki is a gentle, non-invasive energy healing practice that promotes relaxation, reduces stress, and enhances overall well-being. This ancient practice, originating from Tibet and then rediscovered in Japan, Reiki involves the transfer of universal energy through the hands of a practitioner to the recipient. This process helps to balance the body’s energy, facilitating natural healing processes.

During a Reiki session, you will lie fully clothed on a comfortable table while the practitioner places their hands lightly on or just above various parts of your body. You may experience sensations such as warmth, tingling, or a sense of deep relaxation.

Reiki is beneficial for:

  • Reducing stress and anxiety
  • Alleviating pain and discomfort
  • Enhancing emotional clarity
  • Improving sleep quality
  • Supporting overall health and well-being

Whether you are looking to alleviate physical symptoms, achieve emotional balance, or simply enjoy a peaceful and rejuvenating experience, Reiki can be a powerful addition to your wellness routine.

Frequently Asked Questions

1. What should I expect during a Reiki session?

During a Reiki session, you will lie fully clothed on a comfortable massage table (or can be seated if laying down isn’t suitable). The practitioner will gently place their hands on or just above various parts of your body in a series of positions. You may feel sensations like warmth, tingling, or a deep sense of relaxation. The session typically lasts 45 minutes, including discussion.

2. How should I prepare for my Reiki session?

No special preparation is needed for a Reiki session. Wear comfortable, temperature-appropriate clothing and try to arrive on time. If you are early, take a few minutes to relax and centre yourself. It’s also helpful to drink plenty of water before and after the session to support the energy flow.

3. Is Reiki safe for everyone?

Yes, Reiki is a safe and gentle healing practice suitable for people of all ages, including children and the elderly. It complements other medical or therapeutic techniques and can enhance their effectiveness.

4. How many Reiki sessions will I need?

The number of sessions needed varies from person to person. Some individuals feel significant benefits after just one session, while others may require several sessions to achieve their desired outcomes. Your practitioner can help you determine a plan that best suits your needs.

5. Can Reiki help with specific health conditions?

Reiki is not a substitute for medical treatment but can be a valuable complement to conventional medical care. It helps reduce stress, alleviate pain, and promote relaxation, which can support the body’s natural healing processes. Many people find relief from conditions like anxiety, chronic pain, insomnia, and more through regular Reiki sessions. Always consult with your healthcare provider about incorporating Reiki into your overall health plan.
