Reiki is an energy healing technique based on the principle that the practitioner directs energy through their hands to the person, activating the natural healing processes of the client’s body. This allows healing on both the physical and emotional level. Typically, sessions involve the client lying clothed on a massage table with the practitioner directing energy to areas of your body that have become “stuck or clogged” due to stress or anxiety. When your energy is freely flowing, you feel very relaxed, calm and renewed.
The body is designed to heal and grow across the physical, emotional, mental and spiritual realms. If all of our parts are in good communication with each other, we experience health and wellness. However, we all experience stress, and stress has a profound effect on the body and its ability to heal and function at an optimal level.
When an individual experiences ongoing stress, it can overload the energetic circuits of the body, causing them to fail or be severely compromised, often resulting in illness and ongoing fatigue. Often times the body is so busy handling the ongoing stress that it cannot reset on its own. The body then must continue to function in a less than ideal state. This ultimately leads to degeneration, illness and pain in the body, a sign that it is simply falling behind in the healing process. Energy Balancing therapies like Reiki and massage therapy help to re-synchronize these energetic circuits and enable efficient communication in a quick and effective way. This then allows the body to recover and catch up in the healing process.
