What Is Reiki?
Reiki (pronounced Ray Kee) is a gentle method of energy balancing and healing. When translated, the word Reiki means “universal life force energy.” It is the energy that is all around us – in every living thing and in every inanimate object. Reiki is a method of healing rediscovered by Dr. Mikao Usui of Japan in the 1800s. The roots of Reiki can be traced back thousands of years through ancient Tibetan scriptures. It came to the West in the 1930s and its teachings were traditionally passed down orally by a Reiki Master. Reiki started gaining popularity in the late 1990s to become the practice that we know today.
How Reiki Works
The Reiki Practitioner is attuned by a Reiki Master, and becomes a conduit for the transfer of vital life force that fuels the clientʼs own healing system, enabling it to work more efficiently. The energy flows through the Practitioner’s energy body through the crown, brow, throat and heart chakras and out through the Practitioner’s hands.
Because Reiki is a high vibrational energy it can flow through and into anything, enabling Reiki to work holistically on the entire person – chakras, aura, body, mind, consciousness, emotions and spirit. Reiki helps our own healing systems to work to their full potential.
What Reiki Can Treat
Reiki is a complementary treatment to traditional and alternative modalities. Some examples are: addictions, anxiety, energy balance, fear, depression, stress reduction, tiredness and pain relief.
Accelerates body’s own natural ability to heal itself to help alleviate pain and other symptoms
Enables individuals to pursue their potential with greater insight and self-awareness
Allows a release of negative emotions and promotes positive emotions
Promotes qualities of love, compassion, understanding and acceptance
From an early age, I have been very interested in metaphysical subjects. There was and still is a feeling there is more to us than just our physical senses.
Reiki was introduced to me as a client and it helped me so much that I decided to help others in the same way. Over the years having tried I many healing modalities, Reiki was the treatment that gently put me on the path I had been seeking for so long.
My destiny as a Reiki Practitioner became clear to me during my first-level attunement when my teacher asked me if I had already been using the energy to help others. Somehow I had developed within myself the ability to help heal others. There was little she had to do
to attune me to this universal healing
Working as a conduit, it is my mission to transfer the Reiki healing energy to those seeking my services, gently guiding them toward peace, tranquility and balance.
What will I experience during the session?
During the treatment you may experience transient sensations of warmth, heat or tingling at hand placements or sensations of energy flowing around your body, tummy rumbles, slight movement of limbs, increased or decreased energy, sleepiness and emotional feelings.
How many treatments will I require?
For minor health problems or to alleviate stress and encourage relaxation, 1-2 treatments should be enough. Major illnesses generally require many consecutive treatments and may require monthly maintenance.
How do I prepare for a treatment?
Wear clothing that you will be comfortable in while laying on the table. Eating lightly the day of is a good idea, though not absolutely necessary.
Throughout the Reiki treatment with Nancy, I experienced a series of tingles in my fingertips and at one point, the same pleasant tingling at the top of my head. Her gentle touch generated so much warm energy throughout my body that once the treatment was completed, I absolutely floated out of the room.
My experience with Nancy was very relaxing. Even though I couldn’t pinpoint my exact feelings after the reiki treatment, I did know I felt different and very relaxed. That evening I had an amazing sleep and I felt great the next day!
I would definitely recommend Reiki from Nancy. I recently had a double hip replacement and during the treatment, I felt a tremendous amount of warmth generated over my hips. I also felt a lovely tingly feeling surrounding my eyes when she was treating that area. Her space is welcoming and calm and the whole experience was very healing.
