Reiki is a form of energy healing that can help alleviate physical, emotional, mental and spiritual stress. It is a way to ‘tune-up’ your energy to it’s healthiest state allowing for healing to take place. Reiki is a gentle and safe healing practice that is geared towards removing any energy blocks in our system caused by emotional, mental or physical stress and pain. During a Reiki Session a practitioner places his or her hands on the client with the intention of the Reiki Energy to flow. This Reiki energy, also known as the Universal Life Force Energy, is not the practitioner’s energy. It is a divinely guided energy that knows exactly where the blocks are and pushes them out as well as fills up the energy gas tanks wherever you are low in energy. And because Reiki does not use the practitioner’s energy it is safe for both the practitioner as well as the Reiki recipient. You do not run the risk of absorbing the practitioner’s energy and vice versa. During a session a person may feel heat, tingling or cooling sensations as blocks are removed. Most all clients get to a deep state of peace and relaxation during a session.
Reiki is taught traditionally in 2 levels: Reiki I and Reiki II . Reiki I is an introduction to Reiki, it’s history and basic hand positions for healing yourself and others. Once you receive the Reiki I level attunement and can begin using Reiki on yourself and others immediately following the Reiki I class. Reiki II introduces symbols which aid in emotional and mental issues as well as distance Reiki which allows you to send Reiki across time and space.
