Reiki is a Japanese word which literally translated means "Spirit Energy." It is the life energy with which we are all born. Rediscovered in the late 19th century by Dr. Mikao Usui, Reiki can be traced to ancient Tibetan healing practice.
A Reiki practitioner must complete several initiations called "attunements" in which energy is transferred from the Reiki Master (teacher) to the student, and the student learns to focus or "channel" the energy in a way that promotes healing. This channeling of energy occurs much like the way a magnifying glass can be used to focus sunlight and intensify heat energy. Our bodies are naturally made up of energy and Reiki is in us and around us at all times. A Reiki "treatment" can help to focus the energy so that it can be used by our bodies in a way that promotes both physical and emotional healing.
Benefits of Reiki:
- promotes relaxation
- reduces stress; releases tension
- reduces fatigue
- naturally accelerates healing and assists with mental, physical, emotional and spiritual balance
- can stimulate intuition
- can assist with emotional release and body memory
- useful in treating trauma
During a Reiki treatment the practitioner his or her hands on or near the energy centers of a person's fully clothed body. Permission is always requested before physical touch occurs and although it tends to accelerate relaxation, physical touch is not necessary to receive a Reiki treatment.
Recipients often feel a warm, tingly, or "full" sensation in the area(s) in which the practitioner is focusing energy. Each person's experience with Reiki is unique.
Reiki treatments generally last from one hour to one and a half hours. However, focused treatments, which last a shorter time, can be given for certain physical ailments or used in conjunction with other therapy techniques to promote emotional release.
Emotional Release/ Balance
E-motion, in this case, can be defined as "Energy in motion." When we block the natural flow of our emotions, we expend much energy in the effort to hold our emotions inside. This can happen inside or outside of conscious awareness and can have an impact on both physical and emotional well being. Often times, one may experience physical symptoms or emotional discomfort as a result of blocked energy. Kelly is trained to use Reiki to assist with emotional release by helping to remove blocked energy through the body. It is not uncommon for a person who experiences pain in certain areas of the body to find amazing physical and emotional relief once this energy is unblocked and emotion is allowed to flow freely. Kelly has received specific training and has around 20 years of practice in using Reiki to assist clients with emotional release work.
