Reiki (pronounced ray key) is composed of two Japanese Kanji
Rei - meaning Spiritual, Sacred
Ki - meaning energy, life force
Together, Reiki means Spiritual Energy. The Reiki system is a non-religious , spiritual one, its practice allows you to connect consciously with ki, promoting balance, healing and well-being. Its a nurturing, relaxing practice that , over time, helps you let go of anger and worry and makes you feel interconnected, joyful and grounded in your everyday life.
Reiki is a gentle Japanese healing technique that assists the bodies natural healing of the mind, body & spirit.
All of our energy systems are linked, i.e, mind, body and soul; each of these systems is connected and can have an effect on each other. It follows then, that if a cleansing, healing energy flows through the body, the spiritual body and the mind will also bebefit. This is how Reiki works; flowing through the body, cleansing, healing and detoxifying the system on many levels and therefore healing the mind, body & emotions.
A client stays fully dressed throughout the whole Reiki session
On your first Reiki session, I will do a full consultation and explain to you what Reiki is and what you can expect during the sessions, and most importantly, how it can help you.
Once the consultation has been completed, and you are ready to have the treatment, you will be asked to lay on your back on a couch (unless you have asked to have the session sat in a chair). I have towels and pillows to make you as comfortable as possible. You will remain fully clothed , I advise you wear clothes that you can relax in.
You will be asked to close your eyes and relax while I do some guided mediation to help you relax ready to receive the treatment. This will start with various positions around your head with my hands. This will be followed by doing a body scan where my hands will be approx 4 inches above your body. After this there is Light touch to your shoulders, collar bone, neck, arms, hips, legs and the top of your feet (You will be asked during the consultation if there are any areas of these that you don't want me to touch, and also, if you would prefer hands off treatment)
There will also be an option for me to use crystals if you wish, for full details of the crystals I use, please see further down this page.
After the Reiki treatment is finished, I will gradually bring you back out of the relaxed state where you can open your eyes.
Reiki can help with a wide range of issues.
During the Reiki session, I can use crystals to enhance the experience. These are usually placed on your body (This is optional and will be discussed during the consultation).
The Crystals I use are as follows;
