Ready to open up in 2017 and try something new? Why about this:
A subtle, non-invasive therapy, Reiki is the practice of channeling energy from practitioner to client to activate natural healing processes. Reiki practitioners lightly touch or hover over a recipient’s body to redirect energy and healing responses.
You see, when the flow of life force is disrupted, like when you get stressed, problems arise that cause organs and tissue functions to diminish. Reiki opens up these energy pathways, restoring the flow of life force energy through the body, using positive energy to charge the energy fields. By straightening and clearing the path, it allows your life force to flow correctly which encourages health and well-being.
Reiki has a variety of effects and benefits that promote and encourage the overall healing of the body and its well-being. With the restoration of life energy, its effects and benefits include but are not limited to:
Reduced blood pressure
Stronger immune system
Stress and anxiety relief
Forms of Practice
During a session, a practitioner uses a series of hand positions around the head, shoulders, stomach, and feet to redirect healing energy. Sessions are usually 45 to 90 minutes and there are three types of sessions you can have:
Gassho, a meditative state where both palms of the hands are placed together.
Reiji-ho, where the practitioner asks the Reiki powers to flow through the recipient’s body.
Chiryo, which focuses on reducing stress and promotes calming effects.
Finding a Reiki Professional
When it comes to choosing a Reiki Master or practitioner, don’t be afraid to shop around. Your practitioner should be someone you’re able to connect, talk, and vibe with in a positive way. To gain the most from your session, you need to be able to build a connection and relationship with your practitioner.
