Healing with Reiki

“Reiki is a system of energy healing which was developed in Japan in the early 20th century.  It channels spiritual energy to help harmonise body, mind and spirit. It uses “universal life energy” which is channelled through the practitioner to the recipient. (The energy can be known by different names.  In addition to “universal life energy” it can also be called God, spirit or any higher power of your own beliefs).

The whole universe comprises and radiates energy.  I use the term universal energy because it is the energy which animates all living things.  Reiki allows you to tap into and benefit from these energies.

Recipients lie fully clothed on a treatment table (or they can be seated).  The healer gently places his hands on the head and body.  A treatment can last an hour or longer depending on what is required.  Most practitioners use the twelve traditional hand positions and commonly a full treatment is given covering all the important organs of the body.
There is very little or no hand pressure making it ideal for treating all ages and conditions. Sometimes hands are even held away from the body. The energy flows wherever it is required and can normally be felt as a warm sensation or tingling in the body. Receiving Reiki is a very relaxing and soothing experience!

Reiki can be used for many ailments like reducing anxiety and stress, relieving pain, headaches, stomach upsets, back problems, asthma – respiratory problems, PMT, menstrual problems, sinus, and many more.  Practitioners are taught that Reiki should never be used instead of medical treatment, but should be used as a compliment and a way to become and remain healthy.  It is becoming a frequently common practice to use both Reiki and a similar procedure, therapeutic healing, in hospitals, care homes and hospices because of the perceived benefit.  The Complimentary Natural Therapy Healthcare which is recognised by Government maintains a register of fully qualified and bona fide practitioners which for referrals by medical professionals. ”
