I am a qualified Reiki practitioner, offering Reiki treatments from my practice in Dunmow, Essex.
Reiki (pronounced Ray-key) is a Japanese word meaning Universal Life Energy, an energy which is all around us. It is a system of natural healing which evolved in Japan and continues to be taught all over the world by Reiki Masters who have trained in the tradition passed down from Master to student. There is no belief system attached to Reiki so anyone can receive or learn to give a Reiki treatment. The only prerequisite is the desire to be healed. The practitioner is a channel through which the healing energy is drawn by the need or imbalance in the recipient. .
WHAT IS REIKI?
The method of receiving a Reiki treatment is a very simple process. I will usually give a short explanation of what the treatment involves and may ask for some details from you, including a brief medical history. You will be asked to lie down (or sit if this is easier for you) but will not be asked to remove any clothing except for things which could restrict your breathing or comfort, such as shoes or spectacles. Reiki will go through clothing, blankets, or even a plaster cast if necessary!
Treatment is given by me placing my hands gently on or above your body in a pre-determined sequence of hand positions, spending several minutes holding each position. These hand positions are non-intrusive and cover both the front and back of the body and are sometimes varied to give Reiki to areas where it is specifically needed. The touch is gentle, light and comfortable; there is no massage or manipulation. You may feel sensations such as heat, tingling, coolness or throbbing under my hands or in other parts of your body, or you may feel very little. Many people experience a sense of well being and relaxation, or fall asleep; sometimes a treatment is energizing. There is no right or wrong way to experience Reiki!
A full treatment usually takes 1 hour and the cost of a treatment is £40.00
People come to Reiki for a range of reasons - it is possible to heal at any level of being - physical, mental, emotional or spiritual. Acute injuries can be helped to heal very quickly but more chronic illness takes longer.
Reiki healing can be given anywhere at any time as no special equipment is needed. Reiki flows to the areas of need, soothing pain and supporting the body's natural ability to heal itself. Reiki restores balance in one's life and supports all forms of treatment both orthodox and complementary.
