Reiki is a form of alternative therapy that originated in Japan in the early 20th century. The word "Reiki" is derived from the Japanese words "rei," which means universal, and "ki," which means life energy or vital force. Reiki practitioners believe that there is a universal life force energy that flows through all living things, and by channeling this energy, they can promote healing, balance, and relaxation.

During a Reiki session, a practitioner uses their hands to lightly touch or hover over specific areas of the recipient's body, aiming to transfer healing energy. The recipient is fully clothed and typically lies down or sits in a comfortable position. The practitioner may follow a specific set of hand positions or intuitively move their hands to areas where they sense energy imbalances.

What you might experience during a Reiki session can vary widely from person to person. Some commonly reported experiences include:

Deep Relaxation: Many people feel deeply relaxed during and after a Reiki session. The calming nature of the therapy can help reduce stress and induce a state of relaxation.

Sensations of Heat or Cold:Some individuals report feeling sensations of heat or cold in the areas where the practitioner's hands are placed. This is thought to be a manifestation of the energy flow.

Tingling Sensations:Tingling or subtle vibrations are often reported during a Reiki session. These sensations are considered by practitioners as indications of energy movement.

Emotional Release:Reiki is believed to help release blocked or pent-up emotions. Some people may experience emotional releases such as crying or feelings of catharsis during or after a session.

Improved Well-being: Many individuals claim to experience an overall sense of well-being, reduced pain, and improved energy levels after Reiki sessions.

Some people find Reiki to be a beneficial complement to traditional medical treatments, while others view it as a holistic approach to well-being.

Individual experiences with Reiki can vary, and it's essential to approach it with an open mind and a willingness to explore whether it works for you. If you have specific health concerns, it's advisable to consult with a healthcare professional before incorporating Reiki or any other alternative therapy into your wellness routine.

Experience the energy of the universal life force that flows through all living things during a Reiki session.
