I have just completed my training in Reiki (level 2). I was lucky enough to learn from the lovely Lesley Allen (www.reikinetwork.co.uk). I am looking forward to starting work as a practitioner, more info soon!
For those who are not familiar, “Reiki” (ray-key) is Japanese for ‘universal life energy, and is also a word used to describe a system of natural healing. This tradition was founded by a man called Mikao Usui in the early 20th century.
The method of receiving Reiki is simple. The recipient remains clothed and lies on a couch or sits on a chair and relaxes. The practitioner gently places their hands in a series of positions on or near the body. There is no massage or manipulation. The whole person is treated rather than specific areas. Sessions can take 45 minutes to an hour-and-a-half, depending on the client’s needs.
Reiki practitioners are not trained in diagnosis and will not predict any specific outcome from treatment. If people are concerned about their symptoms they should see a doctor.
What does a reiki treatment feel like?
Each person experiences Reiki differently depending on their individual needs at the time.
Clients may or may not feel sensations during a treatment. Benefits reported by recipients include deep relaxation promoting a calm, peaceful sense of well being. Some people feel sensations of heat, tingling, or experience seeing colours, whilst others can have an emotional response, indicating that shifts are taking place.
Please email me if you are interested in a treatment. Regular treatments will be available soon.
