what is reiki
“Reiki is love,
Love is wholeness,
Wholeness is balance,
Balance is well being,
Well being is freedom from dis-ease.”
-Dr. Mikao Usui
The practice of Reiki is an original method of healing, developed by Mikao Usui in Japan early in the 20th century. Reiki is a natural healing energy that works on every level, not just the physical, and is understood to promote the body’s regenerative self- healing ability.
Reiki is a healing process that anyone can benefit from in the normal course of their life. Research using animals and even bacteria suggests it has the ability to reverse stress-induced conditions. It should not, however, be regarded as a cure for conditions. As a natural form of healing Reiki can support and enhance other forms of treatment.
The method of receiving a Reiki treatment from a practitioner is simple. The recipient remains clothed and lies on a couch or sits on a chair and relaxes. The practitioner gently places their hands non-intrusively, on or near the body. There is no massage or manipulation and the whole person is treated rather than specific symptoms. It is also possible to receive Reiki at a distance.
Some of the benefits of reiki are: can relieve anxiety and emotional imbalance. It can help improve your quality of life by improving quality of sleep, self-confidence, and bring a sense of inner peace, calmness & relaxation.
Reiki treatment can feel like a wonderful glowing radiance that flows through you and surrounds you. As the hands are placed systematic or intuitive over the body, the recipient can feel energy ranging from hot to warm to cool. The recipient may respond with a release of emotions with tears, irritation, laughter or she/he may fall asleep. Reiki will work in whatever way the recipient needs it most. The majority of people find that it is an extremely relaxing experience. You might hear a recipient say:
“I saw colors.”
“I felt very nurtured and loved.”
“Your hands felt so warm.”
“I could feel tingling in my fingers and toes.”
“I feel that I am not afraid anymore to face my problems.”
“I felt very heavy.”
“I now understand what I need to do next in my life.”
“Old memories came up.”
reiki treatment sessions
In a one-on-one Reiki session, you receive specialized treatment based on your needs. Lizz does an intuitive chakra scan on you before and after the session to assess what areas to focus on. Also essential oils, crystal grids and oracle card readings are incorporated for an overall wellbeing experience.
Reiki, or universal energy, is the doorway to an expanded consciousness and life! Through this opening to this energy, you will be able to channel life force energy through the chakras in your hands. Keep Reiki as a personal practice, use Reiki to support others healing and/or learn how to teach others Reiki.
