The word “Reiki” means “mysterious atmosphere, miraculous sign.” It comes from the Japanese words “rei,” meaning universal, and “ki,” meaning life energy. Reiki aids relaxation, assists in the body’s natural healing processes, and develops emotional, mental, and spiritual well-being. It is a simple, holistic, natural and safe method of spiritual healing and self-improvement that everyone can use.
What to expect in a session?
Reiki sessions vary in length, but they often last between 60 and 90 minutes. You’ll spend the entire session lying fully clothed on a massage table. During the session, the Usui Reiki practitioner will place his or her hands lightly on or near your body in a series of hand positions, including positions around the head and shoulders, the stomach, and the feet, as well as other positions based on the client’s needs. This will allow to channel Reiki energy into the body, to balance the chakras. Depending on what each chakra needs, alongside Reiki energy, the use of crystal energy, essential oils, and herbs may be used during your session.
Expect to feel deeply relaxed during the session. It may feel like a wonderful glowing radiance that flows through and around you or you may even fall into a light sleep. Reiki treats the whole person including body, emotions, mind and spirit creating many beneficial effects that include relaxation and feelings of peace, security and wellbeing. Many have reported miraculous results. Some people experience warm or cooling sensations, seeing colours, feeling their own chakras, and other spiritual sensations.
