Reiki is a natural healing practice with origins in Japan in the early 1900s. The word Reiki comes from the Japanese word (Rei) which means “Universal Life” and (Ki) which means “Energy”. This energy of pure, unconditional love flows through the hands of the practioner and is then accessed by the recipient for balancing and self-healing.
During the Reiki session, the recipient remains fully clothed while either lying on a treatment table or sitting in a chair. The treatment typically lasts between 30 - 60 minutes. The treatment may be done with the practitioner's hands either lightly touching or hovering over the body depending on the preference of the recipient. The practitioner will change hand positions serveral times during the session. The recipients just relaxes and remains open to the healing energy.
The recipient's experience to the Reiki treatment varies greatly person to person. Most often, people experience deep relaxation during the treatment. They may also feel heat, coolness, or tingling where the practitioner's hands are positioned. After the treatment it is important to be observant to the signs of your body naturally restoring balance and continue to work toward maintaining that balance.
Reiki is a great tool for stress reduction and relaxation as well as promoting wellness. Reiki is not a cure for a disease or illness, but it may assist the body in creating an environment to facilitate healing. Reiki is a great tool to use as a complement to traditional medicine and is practiced in many hospitals and medical care settings.
Chakra clearing and balancing
Life force energy exists naturally in our bodies and moves through our energy centers (chakras) and pathways (meridians). The energy naturally flows between the body and the world around us. All life experiences have an impact upon us. Some experiences will be positive and some negative. If the energy becomes blocked or disrupted in any of these centers, it can result in illness of the body, mind, or spirit. It is important to keep the chakras open and healthy.
There are seven chakras (energy centers) that run along the spine in our bodies. In ascending order the chakras include: root, sacral, solar plexus, heart, throat, third eye, and crown. An imbalance in one of these chakras can affect the others.
During a session, the chakras are assessed for blockage and energy level. The chakras are opened, cleared of negative energy, and charged with positive energy. Once the chakra is recharged with positive energy and balanced, it is closed and a stone that resonates with the chakra is placed over the chakra to 'seal' it while further healing takes place.
