AILEEN PALMER HOLISTIC THERAPY
Reiki Energy Healing
WHAT IS REIKI
Reiki is an ancient, non-intrusive complementary therapy. Generally hands-on healing technique to promote the flow of energy around the body, or hands off if preferred, Reiki enhances the body's own innate ability to heal itself on all levels. It helps restore balance and harmony to the mind, body and spirit. The word Reiki means ’universal life energy’. Reiki works on balancing the energy system in the body, be it on a spiritual, emotional or physical level. Reiki energy can encourage the release of emotional and physical pain to aid better health and a more balanced life. We all have an energy field (aura) surrounding our physical body. As we go through life we place demands on our energy field and close off from it. During a Reiki treatment this energy field can re-energise. Reiki Healing restores the natural balance of the body, providing deep relaxation and bringing a sense of peace and well-being. It is called universal life energy because it draws upon the healing energy of the universe rather than the energy of the practitioner. The Reiki practitioner has been professionally trained to channel Reiki energy. Reiki is suitable for all ages including children.
HISTORY OF REIKI
Dr. Mikao Usui was born in Japan in 1865. He was a Buddhist priest and spiritualist. In the 1920’s he did a 21 day cleanse on Mount Kurama Yama and it was here during this process he is said to have developed the Reiki system. Dr. Mikao Usui taught Dr. Chujiro Hayashi who in turn taught Mrs. Hawayo Takata and it was she who took it to the Western world in the 1970s.
There are 5 Reiki principles.
Just for today, I will not anger

Just for today, I will be kind to all living things

A REIKI TREATMENT
During a treatment I draw-down the Reiki ray and position my hands on and over the body starting with the head, throat and torso, continuing down the body at the thighs, knees, shins and ending at the feet. The Reiki healing will go to wherever it is needed at this time. I am essentially unblocking the body’s 7 major chakras. Relaxing music or if preferred a mediation will play during the treatment.
HOW YOU WILL FEEL DURING TREATMENT
You may feel a hot or cold sensation in different areas of the body even if I am not treating that area; you will feel relaxed and probably fall asleep.
HOW YOU WILL FEEL AFTER TREATMENT
You may feel energised, relaxed or emotional. You may feel very tired initially but then energised. It’s very individual. It’s worth noting 1 hour of Reiki is the equivalent of 4 hours sleep.
