I am a member of the Reiki Healing Association.
I am a Reiki Master Teacher; I began my Reiki journey more than 15 years ago. having received a treatment for a three week long headache which was totally resistant to modern medicine. I just happened to spot a board outside of a therapy room offering treatments; I had no idea what to expect but I walked into the therapy room with this all-consuming headache, and came out without it, pain free and curious to learn more about this amazing therapy.
Over the following few months I went on to have further sessions and began to study the principles behind the teaching.
Reiki is an amazing gift to receive but it's also really difficult to explain to someone when they ask. In fact the best way to understand what it is all about is to have a session or two.
I went on to study Reiki and take my Level 1 course and then followed up with level 2 the Practitioner Level which meant that I could add it to my insurance cover.
Years later I finally decided that the time was right and I became a Reiki Master Teacher.
Reiki ( pronounced Ray-key) is a wonderful experience both to give and receive.
In an increasingly busy, stressful world, it brings calm and peace to all of those who experience it. Some people like myself see colours and experience heat through the hands whilst others may simply experience a profound serenity or wonderment - everyone is different!
So what does a typical Reiki session involve?
First of all, it is not a massage!
Clients remove only shoes and jewellery/watch.
The client will complete a health questionnaire; the practitioner will ask about current health issues.
Treatment is given with the client on a therapy bed or seated in a comfortable chair. Music plays in the background. There is only minimal contact between the practitioner and the client.
All you need to do is lie back, close your eyes and relax!
The session may take anything up to 60 minutes. The practitioner will work around your body on the chakra points with their hands either lightly touching the body or hovering in your aura.
The practitioner and/ or the client may experience sensations of heat or cold/ tingling/ a floating sensation/ see colours or images - or nothing obvious at all. All that matters is that the energy is flowing and will go to the part which needs it most.
Don't be surprised if your tummy begins to rumble - it's a reiki thing! Chances are that the practitioner's tummy will join in.
After the treatment the practitioner will ask you to drink water and ask you about your experience of the session, sharing any sensations they have experienced.
Remember, unless your practitioner is also medically qualified then they cannot diagnose. If you are in any doubt about your condition then you should consult your GP.
You will leave the treatment feeling wonderfully relaxed so don't plan on doing anything demanding. You really will not want to mow the lawn or clean the house so take some time to take time for yourself ...
If you are open to the idea of complementary treatments, if you have enjoyed Hot Stones/ Reflexology/ Aromatherapy or similar, then why not make this the year you try Reiki?
I give myself regular treatments and have had outstanding results with clients from teenagers to pensioners. It can also be used with animals and family and world situations.
I have used it with conditions as wide ranging as :
- post operative pain
- back injuries
- carpal tunnel
- knee problems
- frozen shoulder
- stress and anxiety
- period pains.
