Energy work……Reiki comes from the idea that we all have our own healing energy and when it becomes weak or blocked, physical and emotional imbalance can develop. Reiki practitioners believe they can help restore that balance. Reiki is a Japanese word that translates to “universal life energy.” It is not attached to any religion or specific belief system, but rather is a specific form of so-called energy work designed to enhance healing.
It is recommended to wear comfortable clothes. Then you will lie fully clothed on a massage table or sit in a chair. In most cases, the practitioner will ask you to take a few deep, relaxing breaths before the session starts. A typical session runs between 30 and 60 minutes during which practitioners gently place their hands on or slightly above your body as they travel from head to toes (or toes to head) with the intention of moving energy.
Each participant can expect to have a different outcome. It is a very personal experience and perhaps different each time they have Reiki. During the session, you might notice a warming sensation in certain areas. In other areas, you might not notice anything at all. Even if you come in with a particular problem area, you may experience a sense of relaxation that affects your whole body. You might even fall asleep during the session!
Are there any side effects from a Reiki treatment? Most of the time a person will feel relaxed and uplifted by a Reiki treatment. However, sometimes a person will have what is called a healing crisis. As a person’s vibration goes up, toxins that have been stored in the body will be released into the blood stream to be filtered by the liver and kidneys and removed from the system. When this happens, sometimes a person can get a headache or stomach ache or feel weak. If this happens, it is a good idea to drink more water, eat lighter meals and get more rest. The body is cleansing as part of the healing process so this is a good sign.
