What is Reiki and can this healing modality really help?

What is Reiki?

Reiki is an ancient form of hands on healing which is practiced around the world. Reiki translated means Universal-Life Force. Life force energy flows within the physical body through pathways called Chakras, Meridians and Nadis. It also flows around us, in our energetic field, called the Aura.

Reiki is chanelled through the hands and goes to work bringing healing, balance and whatever is needed on all levels mind, body and soul. It is a deeply relaxing experience that will leave you feeling at peace. Reiki is a natural and simple method of deep healing and self-improvement that anyone can use. It is suitable for everyone of any age, as well as pets too!

The treatment is carried out with the client laying down on a treatment couch fully clothed. The Reiki practitioner will then place their hands in specific positions to allow the Reiki to go where ever needs healing the most. A full treatment will take approximately 60 minutes or more.

Reiki is holistic meaning it works on the mind, body and spirit by stimulating a persons own natural healing abilities. A full treatment reopens the chakras and re-balances the flow of universal life force around the body.

Things that weaken life force energy are:

  • Tobacco

  • Too much alcohol

  • Lack of exercise

  • Drugs

  • Negative habits

  • Stress

  • Traumatic events

  • Poor breathing

  • Lack of sleep

  • Negative psychic activity


Why have Reiki?

It goes to work healing in an non-intrusive and gentle way and has been effective in helping with many illnesses and ailments.

Reiki will give a boost to your natural vitality, it will raise your vibration, and increase the amount of positive energy flowing through you.

When negative emotions are left and not dealt with they create blockages in the emotional body and stunt the natural flow of energy. This invariably leads to unhappiness, sickness and disease. The body gives early warning signs which are normally expressed as aches and pains before we get sick.

Our mind and body are directly connected and are in constant communication with each other. When we are mentally in a bad place this can also have an effect on our physical health.

When your Ki (life force energy) is low because you're under stress or feeling unhappy and exhausted you will be more susceptible to disease and sickness. Your attitude may be generally negative and you will find it difficult to deal with life's challenges. Ki is the very essence of the soul.

Personally I have had very positive experiences with Reiki. It helped me in ways I didn't even expect at the time, physically and mentally. It has filled me with a zest for life I just hadn't felt in a long time before my treatments, while boosting my mood in such a subtle and gentle way. Reiki even significantly eased my monthly menstruation pains which was a massive relief!

What is Distance Reiki Healing?

If you would prefer to receive Reiki from the comfort of your own home distant Reiki is perfect.

Distant Reiki sessions work because energy is not limited by distance. Distance is only a physical limitation, so sessions can be done without clients being physically present.

To receive distant Reiki healing you don’t have to do anything special, but it’s best to lie down and be still if possible. The recipient and healer will agree on a time beforehand and the person receiving simply needs to sit or lie down for the specified amount of time (typically a half hour or so). The effects of distant healing are virtually no different than hands-on healing. An experienced Reiki healer (level II or higher) can send healing energy to a person anywhere in the world no matter how far away from the healer they are. The energy sent in a distant healing session are just as strong as if they were delivered in person directly with the hands.

Distant healings are ideal for those who don’t live in a reasonable distance from a practitioner, people who don’t have the means to travel to and from the healers office, or if you don’t particularly like someone touching you, a distance healing can provide the same benefit without the need for a hands on treatment.

Try a distant Reiki session and experience the benefits for yourself. Remember you don't have to be suffering from an illness to reap the benefits of Reiki and it works every time, wherever you are!
