Reiki is a Japanese word meaning universal life force energy. It’s also an ancient Tibetan style of energy healing. The intention as a Reiki therapist is to restore and balance the body’s natural energy allowing it to heal. The therapist is a conduit, channelling universal energy through their body and into the client’s body and aura. Healing happens on the physical, mental, emotional and spiritual levels. It’s known to reduce stress and increase well-being.
During a treatment different hand placements are used that correlate to each of the 7 main Chakras or energy centres of the body running along the spine. Each one has a specific function in our lives. They absorb and circulate universal life force energy (the energy all around us) throughout the entire body. When the Chakras are in balance, cosmic energy flows effortlessly between them and the body is healthy. Unfortunately, stress and suppressed emotions can cause blockages in the energy flow, creating imbalance and illness. Reiki helps to release these blockages and promotes a healthy energy circulation.
