Over 90% of physical and mental problems are caused by stress. Reiki tackles that stress. It tackles the root of your problem. It helps your body heal itself. No wonder Reiki is gaining popularity worldwide.
What happens during a treatment
You will lay down on a massage table, fully clothed. You will be covered with a soft blanket. I will gently lay my hands on your head and body, allowing the Reiki energy to flow. The focus will be on your major organs and energy systems. Gentle music during the treatment will bring you in a very relaxed state.
A standard session lasts 60 minutes. Shorter sessions are available for children and pregnant women.
What you will feel
Reiki is an individual experience and every session is unique. Most certainly you will feel deeply relaxed. In addition you may feel warmth, coolness or light vibrations. Many people are in a state of peace and well-being after a session. So whatever your personal experience is, it will be positive. At the end of the session, you feel refreshed, with a more positive, balanced outlook and new energy.
What can be treated with Reiki
Physical conditions that benefit from Reiki include chronic pain, headaches, migraines, stomach upsets, back problems, asthma, respiratory problems, menstrual and menopause problems and much more.
It can also help you cope better with health conditions such as cancer, HIV/AIDS, and Crohn disease.
Mental issues that can be helped include anxiety, burnt-out, sleeping problems, bereavement and low self-esteem just to name a few. In fact, any stress-related issue will benefit from this beautiful healing energy.
In Europe and the USA hospitals now offer Reiki as a complimentary therapy. Because Reiki can strengthen the immune system, speed up surgery recovery and reduce side effects from radiation, chemo therapy and medication.
Please note that Reiki does not substitute medical treatment. While undergoing Reiki treatments please continue seeing your medical doctor and follow their recommendations.
Reiki is safe
Reiki is a gentle form of healing. I do not manipulate, diagnose nor prescribe medication. The Reiki energy that will flow through your body is completely safe and will actually enhance any other medical therapy.
There have been no reported cases of negative effects from Reiki.
Recommended number of sessions
The effects of the healing are cumulative. You will notice improvement after the first session, but for maximum benefit I recommend three to four sessions within one month, followed by a session every six weeks to support your health and to stay balanced in mind and body.
Just like ongoing Yoga or exercise, ongoing Reiki therapy helps in the healthy maintenance of your body.
But if you just want a single session to treat yourself to a very relaxing experience, that is absolutely fine too.
You can learn Reiki for yourself
This is something that sets Reiki apart from many other energy healing therapies. Reiki is a simple technique, you can learn the basics in a weekend workshops and then apply to yourself. I encourage my clients to take at least the beginners course (level 1) so they can practice Reiki on themselves and don't rely on me for their ongoing Reiki treatments.
For me the beauty of Reiki lies in its simplicity. As Leonardo de Vinci already said: : "Simplicity is the ultimate form of sophistication". That certainly holds true for this elegant healing technique.
Where does Reiki come from?
Energy healing has been around for thousands of years. People in the Western world and modern society have lost most of this natural healing power. In 1850 a Japanese monk called Mikao Usui rediscovered this ancient healing art while studying Buddhism in China. He revived it and taught others how to do it. He called it Reiki, meaning "Life Force Energy"
