Reiki is a Japanese healing art which is a gentle technique that promotes wellbeing and can help the body heal itself at a physical, emotional, mental, or spiritual level. It is a Universal healing energy that flows through the hands of the Reiki Practitioner. The technique was developed based on the idea that everything in the Universe is made up of energy, flowing around and through us, nourishing our cells, organs, and glands. When one’s energy is low, imbalanced, or restricted by stress, injury, or illness, we are more susceptible to discomfort and disease. When one’s energy is high or balanced, we are more likely to feel relaxed and the body’s own natural healing abilities are awakened and utilized for healing.
A Reiki treatment feels like a wonderful glowing radiance that flows through you and surrounds you creating a relaxed body and a peaceful mind. During a Reiki treatment you are fully clothed and it can be done with a light touch or no touch. Some people may feel gentle tingling, warmth, coolness, or just deep relaxation. The following are some of the benefits of Reiki:
Creates deep relaxation
Improves immune system response
Reduces physical and emotional pain
Reduces blood pressure
Increases mental clarity
Promotes spiritual growth
