We are alive because of the life force (sometimes known as chi) that flows through us. The life force reaches us through our meridians and chakras and it also flows through the field of energy around us called the aura. Life force nourishes the organs and cells of the body. When feeling low, stressed or distressed the life force becomes interupted and so does the flow of its energy to the organs and tissues. This affects our bodies and we can become ill or sluggish. Reiki works by flowing through the affected parts of the body and charging it with energy.
Reiki is a "hands on" healing art. The therapist gently places their hands on or near the client's body and the Reiki will come through the therapist's hands. The client remains fully clothed during the session and soft music is played if the client wants it to be.Otherwise there is silence or the client can bring their own music if they prefer. The treatment lasts around an hour. Before the first session there is a consultation where the client can ask questions or aire any health concerns or worries they may have. Animals also respond well to Reiki, so please feel free to bring your pet for a treatment if it's unwell.
Usually the client feels a pleasant, warm sensation wherever the therapist places their hands. Most patients express feeling peaceful during the session and some people feel so relaxed they fall asleep for a short time.
Reiki can also be an emotional release for people enabling the client to release surpressed emotions.
The amount of sessions needed varies from person to person. Some people need one, others may require a few more, everyone is different. Often a client wants to make Reiki a part of their lives and come for a treatment every few weeks.
Sessions are always booked and paid for on a weekly basis and the client can stop their course of treatments whenever they wish.
