What is Reiki? What happens during a Reiki Treatment Session?
Usui Shiki Ryoho Reiki is the Usui style technique rediscovered and further developed by Dr Mikao Usui in the late 1800's. Usui Reiki is a Japanese Energy Healing Therapy that was derived from ancient knowledge of the energetic systems of the body. Modern science is in the process of verifying the presence of energy lines called meridians that are a vital part of the human molecular structure. These meridians pass through each internal organ and nourish our bodies from head to toes to fingertips.
Holistic Therapies see the human body as a whole and intricate structure that is healthiest when all systems are functioning together at optimum levels. The energy available for use by our cells determines the amount of healing and coping with stress that we are capable of at any one time.
Reiki is a gentle and relaxing method of revitalizing the energy reserves of the body. This promotes healing and maintains your state of health and well being.
During a Reiki Treatment you shall be asked to remove only your shoes and belt or other restrictive clothing and lay comfortably on your back. The therapist shall then gently place their hands on you and leave them there for several minutes. There is a sequence of hand positions that treat the entire body. If you have any sites of tension or injury these areas can be concentrated on. The Reiki energy that enters your body is very calming and people often experience pain relief, daydreams or feelings of bliss.
The effect of Reiki is accumulative and keeps working for a few days after your session. The increased energy present in your system may lead to a natural detoxification where by the body eliminates toxins through the kidneys. Drinking some extra water assists this process.
The human body is always seeking its own natural state of balance, harmony, vigour and vitality. Thus as the energetic systems of the body are healed – physical discomfort, emotional tension and mental distress are relieved, greatly improving quantity and quality of life. ©ShairinFarrell2007.
