As Reiki involves directing the natural flow of energy, it can best be likened to a battery. When a battery’s supply is low, it doesn’t function well. By introducing a charge to it, it can once again run on its own. If you are suffering from an illness (physical, emotional, mental or spiritual), your energy supply is lessened. Reiki works to assist you in bringing your energy level back up to its natural flow, thereby enhancing your own natural healing powers.
A Reiki treatment is conducted through a series of carefully orchestrated touch patterns. During my Reiki treatments, I incorporate a Gemstone Mat that is composed of Amethyst, Jade, and Tourmaline. This remarkable mat has been scientifically associated with reducing levels of tension and anxiety. As the gemstones are heated, they emit far infrared rays and negative ions, enveloping the body from head to toe. This process aids in detoxification by eliminating excess waste and promotes a sense of rejuvenation. Moreover, it purifies the mind, contributing to an enhanced state of overall wellness. The client lies down on a standard massage table (fully clothed). Beginning at the head, the hands are placed in different positions over energy points (chakras) as the practitioner works down toward the feet. The client then turns over and the process is repeated. The hands are held in each position for three to five minutes. I normally treat 11 energy points for 3 minutes on each side for a 1 hour & 15-minute session (spending a little extra time on areas needing extra attention). The amount of energy transferred depends on the client’s needs and willingness to use it. The touch is gentle with little or no pressure applied. Touching or hovering just above the skin, Reiki works either way. This is not a massage technique. Reiki is not related to any specific religious beliefs. It is purely a channeling of energy. It is up to the person being treated to work with Reiki energy to help heal themselves. In 2015, I did not become a Believer because of Scientific proof…..but BECAUSE IT WORKS!
