Reiki is a form of alternative medicine discovered and developed since 1922 by a Japanese Buddhist called Mikao Usai. Although first discovered in Japan it is not necessarily Japanese and has been adapted into many cultures over the years.
Reiki practitioners use a technique called palm healing where universal energy is transferred through the palms of the practitioner to the patient in order to encourage emotional or physical healing.
Practitioners have been attuned by a Reiki Master during a Reiki Course allowing them to receive and work with Reiki.
Receiving a treatment is normally a deeply relaxing experience, balancing and harmonizin body and mind, and giving comfort and peace.
Some clients experience a meditative state where they see colours or images, or embark on an "inner spiritual journey".
In some cases, clients experience that suppressed emotions or problems are released, or old memories revoked. Discussing these with the practitioner often leads to becoming aware of the underlying causes of a physical, mental, or emotional.
A treatment normally lasts approximately 1 hour depending on your therapist.
It is important that any therapist completing a Reiki treatment fully explains what to expect as this can be an emotional journey.
