Reiki (pronounced Ray-Key) is a hands-on Japanese therapeutic technique for stress reduction and healing. Reiki helps alleviate stress and anxiety, body pain, and emotional pain. In addition, it is a wonderful non-invasive way to achieve deep relaxation.
Reiki has been proven to affect adults, children, plants and animals! Reiki can help: support those with Autism Spectrum Disorders; soothe ADD/ADHD; clear asthma; minimize the stress of PTSD; and achieve a sense of general well-being, calm and balance.
HOW DOES REIKI WORK?
Reiki can be performed while you are lying down, fully clothed, on a massage table or sitting in a supported chair. Reiki is offered through light, non-invasive touch with the practitioner’s hands placed and held on a series of locations on the head, the torso, and limbs. This placement is non-intrusive and without pressure.
It is also possible to receive a Reiki session without being touched. Reiki is safely used as a complementary treatment to whatever therapy your health practitioner recommends. It is most important to remember that Reiki comes from the heart, not the head.
HOW WILL REIKI FEEL?
Everyone experiences a Reiki treatment differently, and the effect can be quite subtle from complete relaxation to the sensation of heat coming from the practitioner’s hands. Reiki is a path of discovery, healing and empowerment unique to each individual.
