What is Reiki?

Reiki (or Rei Ki) is an ancient Japanese healing art which channels Universal Life Force Energy through the hands of the practitioner into the body of the receiver. Reiki energy is passed down from teacher to initiate through a series of sacred attunements.
Like many Ancient Wisdom Traditions throughout the world, Reiki is founded on the principles that all life consists of unseen energetic-vibrational frequencies. When life energy is strong and flows harmoniously through your being you feel well, you have the capacity to handle life stresses more easily and are less prone to illness. If on the other hand your life energy is low or out of balance it is more difficult to deal with daily stressors and the individual may be more susceptible to illness.
During a Reiki Healing Session the practitioner gently directs this loving flow of life force energy into the recipient’s body and awakens their self-healing mechanisms. The client is lying on a massage table fully clothed as the practitioner gently places their hands lightly touching or slightly away from locations around the body. There is no tissue manipulation.


What are the Benefits of Reiki?

One of the greatest Reiki benefits is stress reduction and relaxation which activates the body’s natural healing abilities, allowing the individual to improve and maintain well-being and vitality. The Reiki energy allows muscles to relax and helps increase blood flow throughout treated areas. In this way it is extremely effective at quickening the recovery process post accident/ trauma/ illness/surgery.
Because Reiki works with improving the flow of subtle energy systems of the Whole Being it is wonderful for lifting/processing withheld/stagnant emotions, thought patterns and traumas and allows for the clearing of energy blockages. In this way it assists the person with physical, mental, emotional and spiritual healing.
Reiki beautifully supports other forms of therapeutic treatment including massage, reflexology, acupuncture, chiropractic, psychotherapy, breath work, etc and does not interfere with conventional treatment.

What Changes Can I Expect?

Each person’s experience of Reiki healing is unique; most report a wonderful feeling of relaxation, peace and well-being. Others feel more present, calm or focussed as negative thought and emotional patterns are replaced by inspiration and confidence.
As working with our soul and spirit can be very powerful and have a profound impact on the individual, I have found that many people benefit from having Reiki or Coaching sessions in conjunction to the Shamanic Healing. This is primarily because, for many of us, the true healing happens post treatment, during the integration process of our daily living. Each of us responds uniquely to these changes – my support can be truly invaluable in navigating these experience, processing and clearing old emotions, implementing new behaviours and using any of your gifts that are unlocked in order to create sustainable positive change in your life.
