The Japanese word Reiki means ‘Universal life force energy’. A reiki treatment is the application of this energy in healing practice. It is a gift from the universe, simple yet powerful.
What is Reiki?
Reiki works with the wisdom of your body, activating its healing potential and restoring harmony and balance. There is no belief system involved, so anyone can receive or learn to give a reiki treatment.
How does it work?Each person has his or her own energy field/aura. Energy fields constantly react and respond to other energies throughout everyday life (e.g. thoughts, feelings, other peoples energies, life events) - if too much, or not enough energy is focussed in certain areas, this can create a potential blockage.
Reiki is a catalyst for un-blocking energies and relieving mental, emotional, spiritual and physical disharmonies - promoting the body’s regenerative self healing ability, and guiding you towards a well balanced healthy, harmonious and happy life.
Karuna is a Sanskrit word and is used in Hinduism and Buddhism. It is translated to mean any action that is taken to diminish the suffering of others, and could also be translated as ‘Compassionate Action’. The Karuna Reiki® system was developed by William Lee Rand at the International Centre for Reiki Training. Karuna Reiki® is a very powerful yet gentle healing energy. It is a compassionate and loving energy.
The TreatmentA reiki treatment is usually applied with the recipient lying down, fully clothed, on a treatment table. The practitioner gently places their hands non-intrusively in a sequence of positions, which cover the whole body: the recipient need do nothing, except enjoy the experience.
As energy flows to the areas where it is needed, it can be experienced as feelings of peace, heat, cold or tingling sensations. The recipient could drift off into a calm and peaceful state of mind, and may fall into light sleep. Other reactions such as release of emotions, visions/colours or insight into problems (during the session or in dreams afterwards) are also possible.
Reiki is deeply relaxing and has a profoundly calming effect that is particularly effective in relieving stress.
Who can benefit from reiki?Reiki is safe and suitable for people of all ages. Reiki can help clear energy blockages, assist in easing stress, facilitate self-development, manage pain and provide deep relaxation and balance. It can replenish ones vital energy, and strengthen the immune system.
