FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS ABOUT REIKI

There are a lot of questions that people have when visiting a new Holistic Healer. Find some of the most common questions below. If something is still unclear you want to know more, please don’t hesitate to get in touch.

WHAT IS REIKI?

Reiki is a form of hands on or off Japanese technique that not only works with the symptoms of an individual but also gets to the root cause of the imbalance. It is an energetic healing that works with the universal life force energy or Ki energy within and around us. The Ki energy is activated for self healing. Overall Reiki treats the whole person.

WHAT REIKI CAN DO FOR US

Working with the energetic, physical and emotional aspects to address imbalances of life energy or Ki that flows through the body. Reiki reduces stress, promotes relaxation and activates the natural healing processes of the body to restore physical and emotional wellbeing. A few more reasons why you may want to experience a Reiki treatment:


~ Deep relaxation

~ Stress management

~ Reduced anxiety

~ Reduced depression

~ Improvement in sleep

~ Pain Management

~ Improved digestion

~ Enhanced over all wellbeing

~ Balance Mind, Body, Spirit

~ Support for substance abuse recovery

​~ Accelerated surgery recovery or any type of recovery 

~ Greater self-awareness

~ Heightened intuition

~ Greater sense of purpose

WHAT SHOULD I EXPECT FROM MY FIRST REIKI SESSION?

To begin you will be required to complete a confidential client history form that outlines the areas in the body and life that you would like the session to focus on. This helps the Reiki practitioner monitor your progress from session to session. Once you have asked any questions you may have, you will lie fully clothed on the therapy table. The Reiki practitioner will guide you through a relaxation visualisation then place her hands above or on your body based on intuitive guidance received. At the end of the session, you can discuss any questions, emotions or sensations you have or experienced. Things you may experience:

~ Sensation of heat

~ Sensation of cold

~ See colours

~ Past life flashes 

~ Involuntary Movements

~ Fall asleep

~ Itchiness 

~ Emotional responses 

~ Rumbling Stomach

~ Memory flashes 

~ Pins and needles 

~ Sense of moving

You may experience nothing as well which is also normal as Reiki works on a very subtle level and results can become profound and apparent days or weeks later. 

BENEFITS FOR CHILDREN AND TEENAGERS

Children are very receptive to the balancing energies of Reiki. The uniqueness of this approach is that the fears, stress and tensions your child experiences can be gently released even if they don't feel like they want to  talk about it. All that your child needs to do is be open to the process. Meditation and visualising are used to engage with the child to encourage relaxation before starting.

For teenagers, the most common concerns are study pressures, social-group and family challenges. They may include, difficulties at school, coping with new relationships, and the effects of family violence or breakdown. If your child is confronting one of these changes and appears not to be coping, introducing them to Reiki can improve their ability to adapt, self-nurture and recognise the signs when they may need assistance later in life. Some of the benefits:

 

~ Less likely to show signs of stress and anxiety

~ Improved concentration

~ Better sleep  

~ Increased self-esteem

~ Improved self-awareness

~ Increased confidence to deal with daily life

BENEFITS FOR PREGNANT WOMEN AND BABIES

Reiki is both safe and extremely beneficial to an unborn baby and their pregnant mother. Reiki can assist in:

~ Alleviating morning sickness

~ Reducing stress and tiredness

~ Can stimulate babies healthy development 

~ Can treat pain in muscles, joints and spine
