Reiki CAN HELP YOU RELAX AND ALLEVIATE LIFE'S STRESSES



The word Reiki comes from the Japanese word (Rei) which means “Universal Life” and (Ki) which means “Energy”. Reiki is a type of energy healing.


Energy healing targets the energy fields around the body.





WHAT TO EXPECT



Reiki is carried out whilst fully clothed lying down, usually covered in a blanket. It can be carried out either with light touch or hands held just above the body, whichever the client prefers. Reiki is administered through the hands using a series of hand placements.


The most common reported feeling is a deep sense of relaxation and peace with some clients even falling asleep, however this does not affect the treatment in any way.


During the treatment you may feel sensations or you may not, either way is normal and does not mean the treatment isn’t working.


Common sensations felt are:


Hot/Cold

Tingling/Buzzing

Seeing Colours

Memories appearing


As with animal Reiki, distance Reiki sessions are also available and work extremely well.



REIKI IN HOSPITALS & SCIENCE





Reiki is used in hospitals worldwide, one of our local ones being St George’s University Hospital in Tooting. Here is a link to some information on The Full Circle organisation who work with them providing supportive therapies for patients including Reiki. As you will see they work in some of the most intensive areas from bone marrow transplants, cancer wards right through to intensive care.

For information based on qualitative and quantitative scientific evidence, this is a fantastic read. Although it’s mainly for use in clinical practices there is a lot of general information in there too.
