We know that energy is all around us and within us.
Reiki is a holistic healing technique which uses a light touch and energy to bring true healing. It is just one approach to energy healing.
How does reiki work?
Reiki practitioners work on the principle that an imbalance in our energy will affect our body, mind and spirit, causing us to be more reactive, vulnerable to disease and less able to cope with everyday stresses and trauma in our lives.
Day to day events, food choices and toxins in our environment can all impact our energy. We also carry trapped emotions from experiences in our lives, past lives and genetic memories from past generations which impact our energy.
The reiki practitioner will first scan your body to determine where the energy is stagnant or blocked, where it is in excess, where you are holding emotions and where the flow is lacking.
They will then use their hands either on the body or just above the body to assist the release of trapped emotions, to improve the flow, to channel in energy where needed and to relieve excess energy.
Benefits of reiki
Reiki treats the whole person, the body, mind, and spirit, and has many beneficial effects. These include, relaxation, a sense of peace and calm, security and well-being. It can make us less reactive to everyday events and better able to deal with stress in our lives.
Reiki is not a religious practice, however, it is spiritual. It encourages the desire to improve oneself, to be the best that we can; focusing on compassion for ourselves and others, kindness, generosity, patience, joy and gratitude.
