Rei – Ki (pronounced Ray-Key) is a system of natural healing involving the laying on of hands, and is very likely to be thousands of years old. It is widely believed that the technique was first used by Tibetian Buddist monks and was rediscovered in the 1800’s by Mikao Usui. The Usui system of Reiki healing is a very simple yet powerful healing technique that is easily learnt, easily given and received by anyone.
A reiki treatment is designed to be deeply relaxing for the body , mind and soul. Here at Reikibyrekha a relaxing atmosphere is very important to us. We have a natural water feature in our therapy rooms . The sound of flowing water is relaxing for most people. We have candles burning as well as incense and the wonderful relaxing scents of sandalwood and frankincense and myrrh
A reiki treatment will always begin with a consultation. We need to know how our client is feeling physically,mentally and emotionally and then we can explain the healing benefits of reiki for that particular client.
After the consultation the client is asked to lay on the therapy couch. The therapist will explain the whole process before beginning the treatment. The therapist will be holding her hands above the clients body channelling the universal energy ( the ki, the prana, the chi) into the chakras ( the body’s energy centres )
As the energy flows into the clients body, most people will feel some sensations such as the following. Hot, cold,tingling,heaviness,numbness or even aches and pains although these are rare. Remember that this energy only heals and can never cause harm. Most of our clients are asleep and snoring within minutes of starting the treatment! Most of them insist that they did not sleep but we tell them they were snoring !!
At the end of the treatment the therapist will give the client a feedback on the health of the chakras . The client also gives a feedback of how they felt during the treatment.
Further advice is given on possible follow up treatments. We keep in touch with our clients for a few days after the treatments so that we can support them during their detox.
