Out of all the treatments I offer, Reiki is one which can be offered to virtually anyone whatever their age and whatever their state of health. It is gentle yet very powerful and can help us in many areas of our lives. Reiki is channelled through the Reiki practitioner and as the practitioner doesn’t use her or his own energy she or he will not feel at all tired while giving the client a treatment so both parties benefit.
Reiki works differently for everyone according to their individual needs. It operates on various levels – emotional, mental, physical as well as spiritual. It can help to improve the lives of seriously ill people and may give us a sense of direction in our lives as well as insights into the causes of problems and illnesses and possible solutions. Reiki may also :
- Help reduce stress and provide a feeling of deep relaxation.
- Strengthen the immune system.
- Accelerate the self-healing process.
- Provide a feeling of deep inner peace even in cases of serious or terminal illness.
- Help to reduce the secondary effects of medication and reduce pain.
- Increase vitality.
Reiki is an ancient healing technique rediscovered by Mikao Usui in Japan. This reiki system can include the balancing of the chakras (the rainbow coloured energy centres found naturally in the body which are linked to the organs as well as to the emotions, the mental and spiritual aspects of a person).
Reiki, an ancient system of healing is not linked to any religion or belief system. Reiki is simply the placing of the practicioner’s hands on or over areas of the recipient’s fully clothed body. Receiving Reiki is usually an extremely relaxing experience. Ancient healing symbols are sometimes given by a Level Two or Three Practicioner to make the treatment even more effective although healing through the hands alone is very effective.
My Experience of Reiki
I was first attuned to Reiki almost 20 years ago, after an especially difficult time in my life. Although I had never heard of Reiki, Reiki it seems, found me. After using Reiki on myself, animals and friends as welI as in situations such as my car breaking down or getting lost while out walking, (in both cases Reiki helped me quickly in the most amazing ways), I decided to deepen my study of this ancient healing method and was initiated into Reiki two. Several years later I was attuned to Reiki Master by Janet Roome, Reiki Master at Spirit of the Peaks in Matlock, Derbyshire, U.K.
I have found Reiki to help me in many areas of my life and over the last twenty years or so I have enjoyed helping many people experience Reiki through my treatments as well as initiating several into Reiki themselves.
The Importance of Breathing
When receiving a treatment it helps to breath deeply during the treatment. Breathing helps to strengthen organs, and eliminate toxins. It is also important to drink plenty of water afterwards to eliminate any toxins.
How Many Treatments Will I Need?
The number of treatments will depend on what condition is being treated. For a serious illness a course of four to six treatments is normally recommended but even one treatment can help to produce a deep feeling of relaxation and start any healing process that a person may require. Although most people benefit from Reiki, there are some people who feel Reiki is not for them and may instead benefit from another holistic treatment for example Reflexology or Aromatherapy. For others, Reiki can support any other treatments they may be receiving such as medication, an operation or counselling. If you are any doubt please do not hesitate to contact me.
The Principles of Reiki
I will leave you with the following words of Mikao Usui, founder of modern day Reiki :
The Principles of Reiki
(The Art of Inviting Happiness)
Just for today I will not worry
Just for today I will not be angry
Just for today I will be grateful
Just for today I will do my work honestly
Just for today I will be kind to every living thing.
It may seem overwhelming to live by all five of these principles every single day but why not start today by trying just one. You will feel much happier by the end of the day.
