What is Reiki?
Reiki is generally described as an energy healing system that was developed in Japan by Japanese scholar Mikao Usui in the early 1900's. It is pronounced ray – key.
“Rei” – Universal life force, “Ki” – Energy.
It is a safe and non-intrusive ancient Japanese technique that encourages deep relaxation to activate the natural healing process and works holistically on the mind, body and spirit. Reiki energy is transferred by a therapist’s light touch at various points on or above the body.
Reiki can heal your life in a truly encompassing sense. Not only does it stimulate your body's innate healing abilities and deal with physical ailments, it goes right down to the root of problems, whether physical, mental, or emotional. Reiki brings inner peace, helps to relax and cope with stress, harmonising body and mind.
Reiki can be used as a complementary therapy. It complements and enhances the health care the person receives from other health care providers, but please note that a Reiki treatment is not a substitute for conventional therapies. Always consult a medical professional as well.
What to expect from a Reiki session.
Lying comfortably on a therapy couch, the client remains fully clothed during the treatment.
The practitioner's hands may be placed on the head, or on various position near the Chakras along the torso. Often, the hands are placed intuitively. If wished, the treatment can remain "hands-off" with the practitioner holding their hands about 10 cm above the client's body.
The energy will flow wherever needed and can significantly aid the body's innate healing abilities. Receiving a treatment is normally a deeply relaxing experience, balancing body and mind, and giving comfort and peace.
Some clients experience a meditative state where they see colors or images or embark on an "inner spiritual journey".
In some cases, clients experience that suppressed emotions or problems are released, or old memories revoked. Discussing these with the practitioner often leads to becoming aware of the underlying causes of a physical, mental, or emotional problem. The practitioner can also scan the body for any energy blockages or imbalances and release or balance them.

Distance Reiki treatments are just as effective as in-person treatments, allowing patients to receiving healing from afar. Distance Reiki can be sent to a person, animal, situation, time or place. Sending Reiki is possible because energy is not confined and can transcend time and space so it is easily transmitted anywhere. It flows beyond time and space.
Distant treatment lasts 30 minutes.
