Reiki is a Japanese technique for reducing the stress and creating relaxation that also promotes emotional, mental and physical healing. The force that causes us to be alive is called “ Life Force”. If the life force is out of balance then we are more likely to get sick and feel stressed.
The word Reiki consists of two Japanese words: Rei which means Higher Wisdom and Ki which means Life Force Energy. Thus: A Life Force Energy Guided by Higher Wisdom.
Reiki helps in healing of the whole person including body, emotions and mind. It has many beneficial effects such as relaxation and feeling of peace, security and well-being.
Each Reiki session is between 45 minutes to 1 hour. The practitioner is guided to hold her/his hands over or on the different areas of the body and let the radiance energy of divine wisdom flow through her/his hands. During the session you will experience calmness and relaxation. Some of our clients have experienced releasing of tension or stresses by gently crying or falling sleep. Each individual experience is different: the end result is very relaxing and uplifting.
Reiki is safe and simple. It helps with self-improvement and spiritual healing. It helps with healing of many physical, emotional and mental ailments. It is an excellent technique in conjunction with all other medical or therapeutic techniques to ease the side effects and help with recovery.
Reiki can help you bring more balance and harmony to your life.
