What is Reiki?
Reiki is a Japanese word meaning ’Universal life force energy’ or sometimes it’s simply called ‘spiritual energy’ it’s a form of alternative medicine also called energy healing.
In the west the word Reiki has become synonymous with one particular system of healing originated by a Japanese Buddhist priest called
Mikao Usui (1865-1926) who discovered a way of using universal energy to encourage healing of body, mind, emotions and spirit.
Usui’s system of healing is a safe, gentle, non-intrusive healing technique where Reiki - spiritual energy -flows through a person’s hands, which are placed either on themselves or other people and animals.
There is no pressure, manipulation or massage. The energy flows into the recipient and it helps to balance, and harmonise all aspects of the person's body, mind, emotions and spirit.
However, Usui Reiki is more than just a form of holistic therapy. Reiki encourages personal and spiritual awareness and growth.
Before we start the session we will set an intention or goal.
When we are giving Reiki treatment, we tend to focus on Seven main points within the energy field known as Chakras. In Sandscript, Chakra means wheel or disc and this serves to describe the spinning motion that Chakras employ to store, regulate and distribute Ki (life force energy) into auric and physical bodies.

What Are The Benefits of Reiki?
Reiki is an ancient yet simple healing technique. It has been found to produce profound results all through gentle touch, positive mindsets, and energy transfer.Whether you want to receive Reiki for emotional trauma healing, energy level balancing, or to develop yourself spiritually, Reiki has endless advantages.
It is an hour of pure relaxation where the receiver can clear their heads and release the tension and stress of their day. The energy transfer through Reiki may make people feel peaceful, relaxed, and lighter which allows them to be in touch with their inner selves and reflect clearly on their lives.
Regular Reiki treatment promotes the consistent and unlocked flow of energy throughout the body. This allows people to feel less stress, enhances learning and memory, promotes mental clarity, and physical healing/ less physical pain. When energy passageways are blocked, positive energy cannot flow to certain parts of the body, which results in mood swings, fear, anger, pain, and more. Reiki can help keep these passages clear.
You can always expect to feel extremely relaxed after a Reiki session. This kind of relaxation helps our bodies to sleep better, to heal better, and to think more clearly. It is not uncommon for people to fall asleep entirely during a Reiki Session.
