Reiki treatments from a qualified and experienced practitioner can be an incredibly positive experience, resulting in deep relaxation and a profound improvement and overall well-being.
Reiki’s approach to the understanding of ki (vital force) is a simple one. When ki is allowed to flow freely and unobstructed through the body, then a natural state of well-being is experienced. The strong and unrestricted flow of ki throughout one’s body results is good health, a calm mind and high energy levels. However, due to the stress of modern living, it is easy for the ki to become weakened and blocked, resulting in poor health, anxiety, depression and exhaustion.
As a system, Reiki is simple, yet highly effective practice that can be easily learned by anyone. Traditionally, the practice is centered on building awareness of one’s ki and working with different methods like meditation, breathing and hands on healing to ensure health and vitality on all levels. Different people may be drawn to Reiki for various reasons, and the practice has a positive impact on one’s physical, mental, emotional and spiritual well-being.
While there is a spiritual element to the system of Reiki, it is non-religious in nature, and there are no beliefs nor any dogma that practitioners must subscribe to in order to have an effective and positive practice. The teachings are accessible to persons of any or no faith. Most practitioners find their Reiki practice very helpful in understanding their spirituality in a unique personal context, as well as being beneficial for their physical and mental health.
