What is Reiki?

Reiki in Richmond NZ

Reiki energy healing was first developed in 1922 by Mikao Usui, a Japanese Buddhist monk. Rei has many Japanese translations among them are sacred and light. Ki is widely agreed to mean Energy. Energy medicine, in various forms, has been around for thousands of years.

Emotional and physical pain can manifest in the body as energy blocks, blocks which can then lead to a number of ailments. Reiki targets the blocks and allows the energy to once more flow freely around the body. When a persons energy is free flowing and strong, their mind and body are in a positive state of health.

Reiki enables deep relaxation, speeds up the body’s natural healing process and reduces pain. It grounds you and brings profound peace, allowing you to let go of emotional stresses. With this letting go, mental and spiritual clarity can be gained.

from the hands of the Reiki therapists are in the same frequency ranges that are optimal for stimulating tissue repair.”

What happens in a session?

In a reiki session you lie down fully clothed. I work both energetically in your aura and lay light hands in positions around your body. Each position lasts approximately 2-5 minutes, your body dictates how long each position is needed. When the energy stops flowing I move to the next position. You may feel this flow of energy. You will experience a sense of deep relaxation.
