Reiki (pronounced Ray-key) is a Japanese technique used for stress reduction and relaxation, it also promotes healing. The word ‘Rei' is the Japanese word that means ‘universal'. The word ‘Ki' is life energy or vital force. This is the same as ‘Chi' in Chinese, or ‘Prana' in Sandscrit.

How does Reiki work?

‘Life force' flows the body through pathways called chakras, meridians and nadis. It flows around us in a field of energy called the aura. It nourishes the cells and organs of the body.

When this flow is disrupted, it causes diminished function on one or more of the organs or tissues of the body. Negative thoughts and feelings, such as anxiety and depression, also can cause disruption to the flow of the ‘life force'.

Reiki heals by flowing through the affected parts of the energy field and charging them again with positive energy. It raises the vibratory level of the energy field in around the body where negative thoughts and feelings are attached.

This causes negative energy to break apart and fall away. In doing this Reiki can clear, strengthen and heal the energy pathways, thus allowing the life force to flow in a healthy and natural way, helping to restore a feeling of relaxation, balance and wellbeing.

What happens during a Reiki session?

A Reiki session is usually carried out with the client either sitting or lying in a peaceful and comfortable environment. There is no need to remove any clothing.

Reiki may be felt as a flow of energy, which may feel like mild tingling, warmth, coolness or other sensations, or nothing at all.

Reiki is very relaxing, can help with stress, and has a calming effect. After the treatment it is good if a person can rest for a while and drink plenty of water as this helps the body to detoxify.

What are the benefits for psycho-stimulant users?

People using, or trying to stop using psycho-stimulants often experience disturbed sleep patterns, feelings of anxiety or depression, and nagging physical health complaints.

Reiki treatments can help reduce stress levels and bring balance to the body's systems. It can help you feel calm, it can help accelerate physical healing and support positive change. Reiki is a ‘holistic treatment' which means it works on all the physical, emotional, mental and spiritual levels of a person's wellbeing.
