Reflexole Spa Reiki
Many ancient cultures embraced the belief that life energy flows through the body, deeply affecting our entire being. Current research strongly suggests that energy does extend throughout and beyond the physical body, and that disruptions or imbalances in its flow correlate to physical, mental and emotional illness. The healing art of Reiki (pronounced “RAY-key”) addresses these imbalances to support your good health and well-being.
“It is the great error of our day in the treatment of the human being that physicians separate the soul from the body.” — Plato
What is Reiki
Reiki is a Japanese word meaning universal lite energy. It is a gentle method of hands-on healing that taps into the energy referred to as ki in Japan, chi in China, and prana in India.The practice of Reiki is based on the teachings of Mikao Usui, who practiced and taught healing techniques in early twentieth century Japan.
Reiki is not massage, hypnosis or a tool for diagnosing illness. Reiki is a technique that addresses both chronic and acute conditions, gently and powerfully promoting balance among all the body’s systems and the regenerative processes of body and mind.
What to Expect from a Reiki Session
To receive Reiki, most people lie on a table fully clothed, so wear comfortable clothing. Little or no pressure is applied and no oils are used. The technique is so adaptable that you can receive it in almost any setting, in a chair or hospital bed, and through casts and bandages.
Still and focused, the practitioner will simply place his or her hands on or above your head, shoulders, back, chest, stomach, and limbs. Practitioners routinely follow a series of hand positions, but can place their hands anywhere you would like them to, for example over an injury or other area of discomfort. The teachings say that universal energy flows, not from the practitioner but rather through the practitioner, to you. You will receive the amount of energy you need to bring your mind and body into balance.
Though Reiki techniques appear simple, the effects can feel profound. Most people experience deep relaxation. You may also feel tingling, pulsing, a feeling of warmth and comfort, or you may fall asleep. Results can be subtle. Some recipients say they feel little during the session, but afterwards enjoy a sense of calm and well-being, and a deep, restful I sleep. It is possible you could experience powerful sensations or emotions during or after a session. Your practitioner will want to hear about your responses to the degree you are comfortable sharing them.
