What is Reiki?
Reiki (ray-key) is a Japanese technique for stress reduction and relaxation that also promotes healing. It came to the USA in the late 1930’s. It began to spread to homes, private practices, and hospitals in the early 1990s. It complements your medical care and increases your general wellness. A Reiki treatment works with your body’s subtle energy system to restore balance and promote self-healing.
What happens during a Reiki treatment?
A Reiki treatment is given on a massage table, with the client fully clothed.
If you are comfortable with a light touch, Marion will begin with her hands held at the top of your head for a period of time. She will continue to place her hands on your forehead, near your throat area, above your heart, working down the body on one side, then working back up to the head on the other. Marion will then move back to areas that need a bit more attention and energy flow.
If you are not comfortable with her touch, she will keep her hands above your energy centers and other parts of your body.
At the end of the treatment, Marion will read your chakras by using a pendulum. The way the pendulum swings indicates whether the energy is blocked or open to a positive flow. Ideally all 7 chakras need to be open and balanced.
Hoes Reiki work?
Our bodies are sensitive to thoughts and feelings which change the flow of our life energy. Your body remembers everything that happens to you. When thoughts and feelings are held in and are not released, this eventually can cause blockages in your energy flow and we can experience physical or mental symptoms. Stress is a perception of an experience or experiences that we rehearse in our minds and then it manifests in various areas of the body i.e. a tension headache or aches in the shoulders. This is dis-ease meaning that the body is not at ease and balance.
During your Reiki treatment you simply “have a will and intention to let go” of thoughts and feelings that no longer benefit or serve you. Letting go of all that is held inside of you whether or not you are aware of it is extremely beneficial. Sometimes this negative energy is buried deep within our subconscious. You do not have to meditate, you do not have to figure out what it is you need to let go of, – just give your body permission to let go of what you no longer need to hold on to. The Reiki energy will do the rest.
