Reiki Healing transfers life force energy to give us a boost. The same life force energy that is found in trees, plants, animals – all life forms – to charge our battery packs when we are feeling low, help us to release negative unhelpful thoughts, calm our nervous systems and bring about a feeling of well being. In Japan they use it regularly for physical problems, using it daily in the home.
Sensations experienced during a treatment vary greatly, every session is unique. Hot or cold, tingling, lightness, sleepiness, perhaps emotional, a sense of well-being, deep relaxation may be experienced. Some people feel nothing at the time of the session, but later find they may have increased energy, feel less stressed and of a lighter mood. There are no side effects and it is complementary to any other treatment.
Reiki calms the mind and emotions, usually felt as a warm and gentle feeling creating a deep sense of peace and relaxation, helping us to release negative thought patterns and habits. While receiving Reiki your body pulls the energy in and sends it to areas where the negativity is being held charging this area with positive energy and raising the vibrational frequency. The lower vibration of the negative energy cannot withstand this surge of positive energy and will begin to dissipate. The life force nourishes all parts of our physical body and also flows through energy pathways called Meridians and Chakras.
Unexpressed mental and emotional tension builds up in the body and eventually causes dis-ease, so it important we look after our inner life as well as our physical selves.
