What is Reiki?
Reiki is a Japanese technique for stress reduction and relaxation that also promotes healing. It is administered by “laying on hands” and is based on the idea that an unseen “life force energy” flows through us and is what causes us to be alive. If one’s “life force energy” is low, then we are more likely to get sick or feel stress, and if it is high, we are more capable of being happy and healthy.
The word Reiki is made of two Japanese words – Rei which means, “God’s Wisdom or the Higher Power” and Ki which is “life force energy
What to expect during a combination treatment.
Although a wonderfully complementary healing system on its own when coupled with reflexology the effects are greatly enhanced.
During this treatment you will receive all of the benefits of a full reflexology session as well as the healing energy of Reiki. Reiki will be used throughout your reflexology treatment and at the end to focus on areas within the body that would benefit from this gentle and non-invasive therapy. As with a reflexology treatment you will not need to remove any items of clothing apart from your footwear.
What to expect during a Reiki treatment.
Treatment is given by the practitioner placing their hands gently on your body in a pre-determined sequence of hand positions, spending several minutes holding each position. These hand positions are non-intrusive and cover both the front and back of the body and are sometimes varied to give Reiki to areas where it is specifically needed. The touch will be gentle, light and comfortable; there is no massage or manipulation. You may feel sensations such as heat, tingling, coolness or throbbing under the practitioners’ hands or in other parts of your body, or you may feel very little. Many people experience a sense of well being and relaxation, or fall asleep; sometimes a treatment is energizing. There is no right or wrong way to experience Reiki. The treatment will normally last at least 1 hour.
