Reiki (Ray-key) is a Japanese word meaning “Universal Life Energy.”
A Reiki practitioner will use this energy through the use of his or her palms. While some Reiki practitioners do lay hands on the patient I do not. The technique that I use and teach in my Reiki I class does not require hands to be placed on the patient at any time.
What will a patient feel during a session?
This is a wonderful question, but one that cannot be answered as a blanket statement. We are all different and each experience is unique as the patient that is receiving Reiki.
Reiki is a healing modality and, therefore, it is used to balance and restore the body’s natural healing ability. While some feel warmth and/or calmness, others might feel a tingling within the areas in question. For example, if the patient is suffering from a high fever, the last thing that person would want to experience is a heating sensation. Each experience is amazing in that the energy knows where to go and how to be the most effective.
Reiki is energy that your body will respond to. Each one of the trillions of cells in your body has a story to tell. The energy passes through the core of your cells and begins to balance and align these cells so that the body can work more efficiently. When used with hypnotherapy, Reiki becomes a tremendous tool in balancing and healing.
