The body’s energy can become depleted or blocked from the everyday stresses of life or trauma. When this occurs, we typically experience sensations of tightness and discomfort in specific regions of the body. If this blockage of energy persists, disease may develop. Through the infusion of calming Reiki energy, the body's ability to heal is enhanced. Release the stresses of 2018 and give your self a fresh start in 2019 with the help of Reiki.
Here are the top three questions (and answers) people have about Reiki:
Q. How is a Reiki treatment given?
A. In a standard treatment, Reiki energy flows from the practitioner’s hands into the client. The client is usually laying on a massage table but treatments can also be given while the client is seated or even standing. The client remains fully clothed. The practitioner places her/his hands on or near the client’s body in a series of hand positions. These include positions around the head and shoulders, the stomach, and feet. Other, more specific positions may be used based on the client’s needs. Each position is held for three to ten minutes depending on how much Reiki the client needs at each position. The full treatment session usually lasts between 45 and 90 minutes.
Q. What does a Reiki treatment feel like?
A. What one experiences during a Reiki treatment varies somewhat from person to person. However, feelings of deep relaxation are usually felt by all. In addition, many feel a wonderful glowing radiance that flows through them and surrounds them. As the Reiki energy encourages one to let go of all tension, anxiety, fear, or other negative feelings, a state of peace and well-being is experienced. Some drift off to sleep or report floating outside their bodies or have visions or other mystical experiences. At the end of the treatment, one feels refreshed with a more positive, balanced outlook.
Q. What can be treated with Reiki?
A. Reiki has had a positive affect on all forms of illness and negative conditions. This includes minor things like head or stomach aches, bee stings, colds, flu, tension and anxiety, as well as serious illness like heart disease, cancer, leukemia, etc. The side effects of regular medical treatments are often reduced or eliminated with the introduction of a Reiki treatment. Reiki can effectively treat the negative effects of chemotherapy, post-operative pain, and depression. It can also improve the rate of healing and reduce the length of a patient's hospital stay. Reiki at the very least helps alleviate the symptoms and discomfort associated with certain health conditions or disorders. In some cases, patients have experienced complete healing following Reiki treatment. These findings have been confirmed by medical tests before and after the Reiki treatments. However, while some patients have experienced miracles, the same results cannot be guaranteed for everyone. Stress reduction with some improvement in one’s physical and psychological condition are what most experience.
