How do you define reiki energy? This Japanese form of healing is becoming increasingly popular worldwide, and a key element is the transfer of reiki energy from the practitioner to the patient.
When practitioners transfer reiki energy, they believe that it enhances the body's natural ability to heal itself. This natural, holistic, hands-on healing system restores and balances our natural life force (Qi) which can have benefits on all levels - mind, body, and spirit.
So what actually happens in a session? The patient can sit upright or lie down, and the practitioner gently places their hands on or just above the key energy centres of the body.
During this process the practitioner transfers their universal life force to the client, which replenishes their energy stores and allows the body to begin healing itself.
This treatment and philosophy strikes a deep chord for many people, including as it does elements of many other forms of alternative and complementary healing practices, including aromatherapy, auras, chakra balancing, crystals, homeopathy, meditation, naturopathy, and spiritual healing.
Those who undergo treatment report it to be profoundly relaxing, leaving them feeling both relaxed and energised - exactly the same as a good night's sleep or a meditation session might.
Because it is natural and non-intrusive, there are no fears of side-effects or overdoses. If you have never experienced this subtle, gentle form of healing, you should book an appointment with your local practitioner.
