A method of healing which
brings balance to both mind and emotions
helping to promote a
calmer response to life’s challenges
KI - Life Force Energy
What is Reiki?
Reiki is a Japanese
technique for stress reduction and
relaxation that also promotes healing and
relieves suffering. The method was developed
by Dr Mikao Usui in Japan early in the 20th
century. It is based on the idea that an
unseen "life force energy" flows through us
and through all living things and is what
causes us to be alive.
If our "life force energy" is low, then we
are more likely to feel stress or become
ill, and if it is high, we are more capable
of being happy and healthy. Reiki treats the
whole person including body, emotions, mind
and spirit creating many beneficial effects
that include relaxation and feelings of
peace and balance to both mind and emotions.
This energy has been known by many different
names through different cultures through
ancient times to the present including ‘chi’
in China and ‘prana’ in India. The free-flow
of this energy in a person is also the basis
of Acupuncture, T’ai chi and Yoga.
What are the benefits?
effective in helping virtually every known
illness, which can be a time of great
stress. It can help us cope by encouraging
relaxation, by promoting a calm, peaceful
sense of well-being on all levels. It
encourages and supports positive personal
choices, such as improving diet, taking more
exercise, devoting time for rest or leisure
activities, and may reduce the need for
alcohol and tobacco.
Reiki’s gentle energy is easily adapted to
most medical conditions and may be used
safely by people of all ages, including
pregnant mothers, surgical patients, the
frail and the elderly, i.e. in any
situation. Being complementary, Reiki works
effectively alongside orthodox healthcare
and other natural remedies.
during a session?
A session is usually carried out
with the recipient lying down or sitting.
The therapist places their hands gently on
or over the body. No pressure is applied and
no massage or manipulation is involved.
There is no need to remove any clothing as
Reiki energy passes easily through all
materials, including plaster casts. Reiki
may be experienced as a flow of energy, mild
tingling, warmth, coolness, other
sensations, or nothing at all.
Do I need to do anything
after a session?
As Reiki is deeply relaxing and can have a
profoundly calming effect, it is a good idea
to rest for a while afterwards if possible
and drink plenty of water. The beneficial
effects from a treatment may be felt for
several days. As part of the normal healing
process, you may feel rising emotions and on
occasions physical symptoms may feel worse
but this is only temporary.
How often do
I need to have a treatment?
A single Reiki session can make
a difference; however, a course
of regular treatments may be
more effective as
it helps promote a calmer
response to life’s challenges.
These may be weekly, fortnightly
or less, depending on the needs
of the individual.
How does it work alongside
Reiki does not take the place of
conventional medicine. It works in
conjunction with all other medical or
therapeutic techniques to relieve side
effects and promote recovery. You may like
to know that Reiki is becoming far more
mainstream and is now being used in a
variety of settings including GP surgeries,
hospitals, hospices, cancer support groups,
post-operative recovery, drug
rehabilitation, prisons, HIV/AIDS centres,
and in the care of the elderly.
