Frequently Asked Questions

What is Reiki?

Reiki is a Japanese technique of stress reduction and relaxation that also promotes healing. It paves the way for the body’s ability to heal. Reiki is administered by “laying on hands” and uses “life force energy” which flows through us and what causes us to be alive. The underlying philosophy of Reiki is that if a person’s “life force energy” is low, they are more likely to be unwell or stressed. If it is high, however, they are more capable of being happy and feeling well.

A healing session with a Reiki practitioner brings this low energy back to its natural state while clearing and realigning chakras, meridians and nadis. 

How does Reiki work?

Reiki is also know as “Universal Life Force”. This life forces flows through each and every one of us. It flows through the physical body, down pathways known as chakras, meridians and nadis. Once one of our charkas, meridians or nadis are blocked this subsequently affects others and disrupts the natural flow of energy. It also affects our energetic field, know as our aura. 

Life force energy nurtures the organs and cells of the body, supporting them in their vital functions. When this life force is disrupted it can deplete the function in one or more of these organs and tissues of the physical body.

How is Reiki treatment given?

In a standard treatment Reiki energy flows from the practitioners hands into the client. The client is usually laying on a massage table but treatments can also be given while the client is seated or even standing. The client remains fully clothed. The practitioner places her/his hands on or near the clients body in a series of hand positions. These include positions around the head and shoulders, the stomach, and feet. Other, more specific positions may be used based on the clients needs. Each position is held for three to ten minutes depending on how much Reiki the client needs at each position. The whole treatment usually lasts between 45 and 90 minutes.
