What is Reiki:
by Holistic Therapist & Reiki Master Wendy Blease: There are many forms of Reiki since its introduction into the western world; this has happened as some people have brought the use of Angels and Crystals in to this valid healing system. Angels as we all know can bring healing just as crystals can do.
Therefore, what is Reiki?
Reiki is a form of hands on healing, which was brought to us by Dr. Usui, During a retreat he sat under a waterfall in meditation and experienced this healing energy coming to him.
Never the less the Reiki healing system was born. Dr Usui used this new healing energy on himself and family and friends. He then went on to run seminars and givelectures on this new and fascinating healing system.
Reiki is a wonderful healing system for stress release, pain relief and quick energy. In short, Reiki can be a holistic self-help technique for directing natural life force energy for those who wish to learn the system.
What to expect with a Reiki treatment
One does not need to undress and you can receive Reiki fully clothed and whilst laid on a therapy couch, sat on a chair or even whilst in another room / place. A therapist will gently touch the outer edges of your body their hands, you may feel a faint heat and or tingling coming from the practitioner’s hands, and relaxation will soon follow as will a feeling of well being. If you wish the practitioner not to place, their hands on you this is also fine, as the Reiki will still flow even when the therapist has their hand a few inches away from your body.
Some people may have a ‘healing crisis’ which is cold like symptoms and lasts for a few days, the healing crisis is just the body’s way of letting go of energy that may have had a detrimental effect on their system.
How can I learn Reiki
Anyone can learn Reiki it is easy to learn. There are three levels to Reiki, and one must attain level II if they want to practice Reiki as a practitioner. Level I is mainly for self and family and friends and Level III is regarded as the Master level, you can take on board the teaching level after the Master level is attained.
If you wish to take onboard training ask question of the instructor as for feedback from other students and again make sure they do not charge the earth.
