Reiki is a form of energy bodywork that originated in Japan. It is based on the concept that a "life force", or energy, flows through us. According to the Reiki tradition, we experience vitality when there is a harmonious exchange of energy and information between our individual body and our environment. On the other hand, when the energy is disrupted, weakened or blocked, we may experience symptoms such as fatigue, unhappiness, and illness. Reiki helps activate the body's natural healing abilities by channeling energy into the recipient by means of subtle touch. Peace and relaxation are some of the reported effects of receiving a Reiki session. The more we can experience a relaxed, stress-free state, the more we invite increased vitality into all aspects of our being.
A person in good health can still receive the benefits of Reiki, such as gaining a more positive outlook on life, experiencing an increase in energy, or receiving clarity about a specific situation.
Each Reiki session begins with the practitioner getting a thorough understanding of the client's goals and concerns, including any mobility issues. Reiki sessions may be enhanced by the use of aromatherapy and crystals when deemed appropriate by the practitioner and client.
