Reiki helps to balance your energy points known as chakras *. It is a non intrusive hands on healing process where the chi, or the energy, flows through the hands. There is no need to remove any clothing as Reiki will pass through anything, even plaster casts. I like to work with my pendulum initially, scanning the body for any "blocked" energy centres. It is ususally the case that the pendulum will stop moving where there is need for extra healing. Most patients are amazed at how this works and ties into what they have been experiencing in those areas of their body.
Reiki is excellent for relieving stress and emotional issues and re-energising you. You just simply lie on the couch or sit and let it do its work, most patients drift off into a sleep state. Reiki can bring up emotional issues as well, so sometimes works on clearing that before it starts to be beneficial. Reiki works on the whole body not just specific symptoms and usually takes about an hour for a whole body healing. Usually one treatment is all that is required with a top up session several weeks later. It is a wonderfully comforting and relaxing process. I am a member of the British Complimentary Medicine Association and the Association of Energy Therapists.
* We have seven main energy points known as chakras which means spinning wheels. These are situated at your crown, middle of forehead, throat, heart, abdomen, lower belly and pubic bone and base of spine.
