Reiki is a non-invasive complementary therapy, using energy flow from the Reiki practitioner's hands, when placed on or near the recipient.
As Reiki is gentle by nature, it is suitable for all. However, as with all forms of complementary therapy, a full consultation form is required to be filled in prior to your 1st treatment..
Anyone can benefit from Reiki,Reiki can compliment and enhance other forms of treatment.
What happens during a Reiki treatment?
Reiki can be used to treat the whole body, or can be localised to a specific part of the body.
You will remain fully clothed, and typically be asked to lie on a massage table or be seated in a chair. Your therapist may need a few moments to enter a calm state and will then place his or her hands, on or near, various parts of the body, including the head, torso, knees and feet.
Some practitioners may follow a fixed set of positions, while others will use their intuition to guide movements to areas needing attention. You may feel warmth, tingling and deep relaxation.
After your treatment
After your treatment you may feel deeply relaxed, as Reiki can potentially stimulate natural re-balancing. To increase the relaxation it is best to rest and enjoy the overall sense of well-being.Your sleep pattern may improve due to the relaxation.
Drink plenty of water - this helps flush away toxins. Please avoid alcohol, caffeine or any other stimulantes for at least 24 hours. If you have any queries, don't hesitate to ask your therapist for advice.
