Reiki is a Japanese technique for stress reduction and relaxation that also promotes healing. Reiki is administered by “laying on hands” and techniques such as this have been practiced for thousands of years. Reiki is a very simple yet powerful technique.
Reiki was developed in Japan in 1922 by Mikao Usui and was brought to the West in 1937 by Hawayo Takata. The popularity of Reiki has grown exponentially in the past few decades. A survey conducted in 2007 indicates that in the previous year, 1.2 million adults and 161,000 children in the U.S. received one or more Reiki sessions.
How Does Reiki Work?
Reiki clears, straightens and heals the energy pathways, thus allowing the energy to flow in a healthy and natural way.
What is a Session Like?
To receive Reiki, you are lying fully clothed on either the BioMat or just on the massage table. The BioMat is a medical device that uses far infrared heat, negative ions and amethyst crystals to promote healing. Sessions normally last about an hour.
The Reiki practitioner places his or her hands on different locations around the body. These places include the head, shoulders, chest, abdomen, and limbs. The energy flows through the practitioner to you. You will receive the right amount of energy to bring your mind, body and spirit into balance. Most people experience deep relaxation. Everyone is different and can have different reactions such as tingling, a sense of warmth or you could even fall asleep. For some people, they experience minimal benefit during the session but, afterwards they experience a sense of well-being and relaxation.
