Reiki? Is that like what you do in the fall to get rid of the leaves on your lawn?

on September 23, 2010

Reiki has been around for many years but only recently has it come to the Western world and is still a new healing treatment to most.  Not only is there confusion as to what exactly Reiki is but also what to expect during and from a treatment.

To help clarify…

Reiki is a light touch energy based modality that helps re-establish your normal flow of energy which enhances your body’s natural ability to heal itself.  A what you say?

Maybe this will help…

When a client comes in for a Reiki treatment they will normally be asked to take off their shoes and lie on what most would consider a massage table.  But make no mistake Reiki is not a massage, there is no manipulation of the muscles during a Reiki treatment.

Once settled on the table your practitioner will spend a few minutes getting themselves prepared for the treatment.  This just means you lay there patiently waiting for what comes next.

What comes next is a light touch of hands on your body.  Most practitioners will start at your feet and work their way up and around your body.  There is no set pattern to a treatment; the practitioner follows the energy where it leads them and where they need to be in order to help make you feel better.  Sometimes you may not even feel the practitioner’s hands on your body as the touch is so light or they may be working above your body depending on the position.  If there is a specific area that you have mentioned that is bothering you such as your lower back then the practitioner may spend more time in that area then another.

The hand positions allow the energy to flow through the practitioner to the client.  The client will take as much energy as their body needs to help re-balance their own life energy (ki).  Most clients need more than one treatment to get the full effect due to energy blockages in the body that need to be worked out.  But you should feel more relaxed after the first treatment and have some relief of any issues you may have been experiencing.
