Reiki (pronounced ‘ray-kee’) comes from the Japanese words, ‘rei’ (meaning ‘universal’) and ‘ki’ (meaning ‘energy’). Reiki is a natural healing energy activated by intention. This universal life force, or energy, is what flows through every living thing. If it is interrupted in any way this leads to the flow being low or weakened, making us feel ill or stressed. The higher the energy flow within us the more balanced, capable, happy and healthy we feel.
Reiki works on every level – physical, mental, emotional and spiritual. It always goes where it is needed and for the higher good, as well as promoting feelings of deep relaxation, peace, well-being and harmony in your life. Many people report amazing results such as pain relief, emotional release from traumas, letting-go of old habits or simply being able to cope with life after losing all hope.
The practice of reiki is an ancient Japanese relaxation technique that is gentle, yet powerful and completely harmless. It was developed by Mikao Usui in Japan in the early 20th century. It is safe for everybody and works in conjunction with other complementary therapies or conventional medicine.
What to expect
Reiki is a completely non-invasive, holistic treatment. You remain fully clothed throughout the treatment and lie on a comfortable treatment couch with dimmed lights and gentle music playing. First, Rebecca will scan the body for any areas that need attention, focusing on the seven chakras (Sanskrit for ‘wheels’), the body’s energy centres which are like batteries that need charging. I then use a series of hand positions to channel energy to the seven chakras (crown, third eye, throat, heart, solar plexus, sacrum and root) to help rebalance the body.
Throughout the treatment Rebecca follows her intuition and adapts each treatment depending on the individual’s needs. Reiki can be carried out either hands-off or hands-on, depending on the client’s preference.
Rebecca incorporates crystals, using the beautiful and natural healing energy to rebalance and realign the chakras during your reiki treatment.
