When looking at treating one’s health holistically, it can be viewed in several aspects including the physical body, the emotional body, the energetic body and the spiritual body.

What is Reiki?

Reiki is an ancient Japanese technique of energy work which promotes healing, stress-reduction and wellbeing. Reiki utilizes the universal lifeforce energy – sometimes referred to as “chi” or “prana” – to clear and promote flow through one’s energy channels. Patients can emerge feeling more refreshed, centred and peaceful.

Reiki is used to treat all aspects of a person, which includes their physical, emotional and spiritual body. A treatment can be administered hands-on with light pressure or with no contact, if preferred. Patients can find a treatment to be very soothing, clarifying and healing.

Patients can experience feelings of:

  • Clarity
  • Peace
  • Relaxation
  • Balance

Who can be treated?

People of all ages, stages and walks of life can be treated with reiki – it is made for everyone. Even pets, plants and environments can be treated with reiki.

It can also be used in conjunction with other treatments to support the healing process of those experiencing chemotherapy, chronic pain, infertility, digestive issues, anxiety and stress-related issues.

What to expect in a reiki treatment

Patients remain fully clothed and can receive treatment lying down or sitting. The reiki practitioner will gently place their hands, palms down, on or just above the patient’s body to begin ushering in healing energy. There will also be chakra balancing performed in specific energy locations.

Reiki differs from other touch therapies in that there is no firm pressure, massage or muscle manipulation involved.

What is does reiki feel like?

Patients may experience sensations such as heat, tingling or pulsing where the reiki practitioner has placed their hands, or it can radiate to another part of the body. Others may not feel any sensations at all. It is also possible for some patients to experience emotions arising to be released.

However, most experience full relaxation, peace and presence.
