What is Reiki?
Reiki (pronounced Ray-key) is an unseen energy that flows through all living things and directly affects the quality of a person's health. This life energy goes by many names. qi in China, ki in Japan, and prana in India. When your life energy is low. it is more difficult to deal with stress. you may not sleep well, and your susceptible to illness. When your life energy is strong, you feel strong, can more easily deal with stress, and are less likely to get sick. Reiki is a technique that increases a person's supply of energy.
Reiki energy allows muscles to relax and increase blood flow to treated areas, which in turn quickens the healing process. Practitioners and clients report help with stress, headaches, insomnia, upset stomach, sprains and other minor conditions. Occasionally, miraculous results are reported. Reiki also promotes psychological healing, including release of anger, fear, worry, sadness and other unhealthy feelings. and replaces them with self worth, confidence and tranquility.
What is a session like
Reiki is administered through the hands of a Reiki practitioner with the client lying fully clothed on a massage table. A session usually lasts between 45 minutes to an hour and a half and shorted sessions are also possible. The Reiki practitioner places his or her hands at locations around the head and shoulders, the abdomen, and on the legs and feet. Reiki energy flows from the practitioner's hands into the client's body and energy field. A Reiki session fills the client with feeling of relaxation and peace. Reiki can be administered to animals as well.
