Usui Reiki

What is Reiki?

Reiki is a natural healing system originating in Japan. It was founded by Mikao Usui in the 20th century, who was a Tendai Buddhist, an accomplished Swordsman and Martial Arts Teacher. The word Reiki means “Universal Life Energy” or “Universal Life Force” and is a tradition that is open to any belief system and any Religion.

Reiki is non-judgemental and helps promote healing unconditionally. The “ki” or energy is encouraged to flow through the person which can help restore balance and bring harmony, gently allowing the mind, body and spirit to clear stagnant energy that you maybe holding onto. If our own energy or ‘Ki’ is free flowing and not stagnant, we can become healthier individuals within our own selves. This can have a “ripple” effect and may even encourage people around you to feel better. There is some truth in taking care of oneself first!

Reiki is available to everyone. Be true to yourself and if you wish to take the path onward to a journey of self discovery and better health, Reiki maybe able to help you. 

How Reiki can help you…

Unfortunately, the stressful and busy world we live in can often have a negative effect on our well-being. This can disrupt the energy flow throughout in the body. Reiki can help by restoring the balance of energy in a way that is gentle and safe. As your body becomes balanced and energy blockages are released, the body can begin its own natural healing ability.  As the energy in our body is bought back into balance, we may start to see life a little differently and this helps us to manage our choices and challenges with a more positive outlook.

Reiki can help you during times of stress and crisis. It can help to clear the mind, allowing you to see new outlooks and find positive directions to situations. With Reiki you can feel empowered to take your own health in your hands, and accept yourself truly as you are.

By receiving Reiki, the mind and body are encouraged to relax giving a feeling of well-being. Pain and discomfort maybe reduced and anxiety and depression can be eased.

The mind and body is encouraged to cleanse and management of symptoms can become easier helping us to cope better in our every day lives. 

Reiki is safe and gentle for men, woman, elderly, children and pets.

It is important to understand that Reiki does not diagnose and should never be used as a substitute to conventional medicine. It is important, however, to understand that Reiki can be an enhancement to conventional medicine.

If we allow ourselves time to relax our mind, body and spirit,

it is then that our own natural healing abilities begin.

What to expect from your Reiki Healing…

On your first visit, we will chat about your overall health and well-being and complete a Consultation form. I will maintain your confidentiality at all times. Your Reiki journey is unique and we will monitor your progression at further visits if required. During your Reiki Healing, you will comfortably sit or lie on a therapy couch. You will need to remove your shoes and any large items of jewellery. Please ensure your mobile is switched off to help you relax and not be distracted during your treatment. 

Soft music can be played if you wish and natural candles will gently light the room. As the Reiki begins, you will be asked to close your eyes and focus on your breathing to help settle your mind and body If you wish to bring your own favourite music, that is absolutely fine, just let me know.

There are no massage techniques in Reiki Healing. Reiki is a “hands off” healing system. I work with my own intuition and each Reiki session is different from the rest. Contact is made with my hands placed on your the shoulders to start the energy flow. Thereafter, my hands are guided to areas over your body holding them a little way from you or sometimes lightly touching specific areas. This is never intrusive. As the energy begins to flow, your mind and body are encouraged to relax, helping you find a deeper sense of calmness within. Water will be offered to aid removal of any toxins released, helping your body with the healing process.

During your treatment, you may feel different sensations and emotions. This is completely normal and unique to you. You may feel nothing but deep relaxation. Reiki Healing is different for everyone and we all have our own individual experiences.  You may fall asleep or you may not. However, please do not make the mistake by thinking Reiki has not worked if you do not have any of these experiences! Remember, your healing journey will travel at its own kind pace, always gentle and in a way that is right for you.

Reiki may continue to flow over a couple of days after your session.

Each morning,

We are born again,

What we do today

Is what matters the most” – Buddah
