What is Reiki?
Dr Mikao Usui, a Japanese scholar from the 19th century, rediscovered the essence of Reiki in ancient Buddhist teachings written in Sanskrit sutras. Reiki, literally translated, means ‘Universal Life Force Energy’.
Reiki is a wonderful Japanese healing method used to help reduce stress and aid relaxation, which is based on the therapist channeling natural healing energy through their hands to the clients body to aid and restore physical and emotional wellbeing. When our “life force energy” is low we are more likely to get sick or feel stressed and tired and quite commonly emotionally exhausted; if it's high we are more capable of being happy and feeling healthy.
Benefits of Reiki healing
This holistic healing process is a highly effective healing method that improves one’s sense of well being by restoring balance to one’s mind, body, emotions and spirit. It does so by gently stimulating the flow of one’s subtle energies; by cleansing and recharging them, it activates one’s body’s own ability to self heal. Some of the benefits:
- Reduce physical pain
- Recover from addictions/substance abuse
- Accelerate the healing of serious injuries, surgeries, illness
- Reduce the side effects of chemotherapy and other medical treatments
- Increase the effectiveness of other natural and traditional medical treatments
- Relieve anxiety, stress, depression
- Neutralize emotional trauma and triggers
- Enjoy life and have more positive experiences
- Release unwanted habits and install new positive habits
- Clear negative thought patterns and energetic attachments
- Identify and release hidden blocks that are holding you back
- Discover and live your true life purpose
- Experience a deep sense of peace and contentment
- Balance and harmonize your energy meridians and chakras
- Identify and release early life, past life, and ancestral patterns negatively affecting you
- Heal relationship issues and improve communication with others
- Reconnect you with your Source of Being
During a Reiki session, I will combine Reiki healing energy and my intuitive medical skills. First I will start the healing process and then blend with your energy to receive intuitive messages from my healing guides. Fully clothed in a comfortable chair or lying on a massage table with your eyes closed, whichever you prefer, you will feel relaxed and may even drift off to sleep. Some of my clients drift into a light sleep, others speak – let yourself be carried away by your desires and emotions. The sensations are different for each person and occasion. You may feel nothing physically except a state of well-being and relaxation. Some people feel heat, tingling, or have images coming to them. Sometimes the body reacts by sneezing, laughing, creating spasms. Feel free to talk and let your emotions speak during or after the session.
After the end of the session, still working with my healing guides, I will give you a short summary, addressing your concerns and the issues found during the session. I encourage clients to rest after a Reiki session, as many clients want to sleep afterwards and the healing process will continue. Sometimes the full effect will be noticed weeks after a session since the healing starts from within the soul and works out.
It is advisable to drink plenty of water and to rest, to support any physical or emotional cleansing that may occur, as the elimination of toxins from your body may be part of the healing process. You might feel very tired because emotional release, energetic release is more intense than physical release. And also, we’re not always aware of what we’re carrying.
Although an immediate sense of peace and relaxation will typically be felt during your initial session, some of you might need 3 to 4 sessions to help issues & conditions that you’ve suffered from for a while. Long term imbalances in the body usually require multiple treatments to allow the body to reach the level of relaxation necessary for the healing energy to help restore its balance.
A Reiki session lasts lasts 60 mins.
Reiki is a non diagnostic, non manipulative technique that can be used in conjunction with conventional medicine and also with other complementary therapies. It is not a replacement for any medical treatment. If you are seeking medical diagnosis and treatment you should see a medical doctor. Energy healing does not cure any medical conditions, it simply assists people in becoming healthier.
It was my first Reiki session ever and it was AMAZING. I felt really great immediately after the session. I felt relaxed and happy. Cindy is a wonderful person. she listens to you and try to connect with you. She had an amazing energy that you feel during the session. After the session is done, she would recommend some helpful practices and give you helpful tips. Also, the great thing about her that she will email you after the session with more in depth details about the session and her recommendations. Love her and i highly recommend her. Nyla A
