Welcome to Stubbington Natural Health Clinic, from the Director, Caroline Herbert |
Reiki is an ancient form of healing believed to have spread throughout Tibet, China and India several thousand years ago.
The word “Reiki” means “universal life energy” in Japanese. It is the vital life energy which flows through all living things and can be used for healing on all levels – spiritual, physical, mental and emotional.
Reiki is not a religion or a faith system. All that is necessary is the will to heal and to be whole.
How Reiki Works
The Reiki healer acts as a channel for the life energy which is believed to activate the recipient’s natural ability to heal itself.
Reiki is considered to work wherever it is most needed within the mind, body and spirit releasing blocked energies and works to create a state of balance.
Reiki is believed to reinforce the ability to take responsibility for one’s life and can help to make the necessary changes in attitude and lifestyle to promote a happier and healthier life.
Effects of Reiki
A Reiki treatment affects each individual differently. The results are determined by the needs of the person being treated. Some of the results may be: healing, energy amplification and balancing, stress and emotional releases, and increase in awareness and creativity.
If you are well, Reiki may just help you stay that way.
You can help heal yourself
The beauty of Reiki is simplicity. You do not learn Reiki, you accept it. It enhances and increases your natural ability to heal.
You can do much to help yourself. Just by changing a negative thought to a positive one; being kinder to yourself and learning to approve of yourself.
Just taking a few moments each day to relax, laugh and smile may help the healing process.
If you enjoy Reiki you can take classes to learn to channel the healing energy yourself.
Receiving a Reiki is a very simple, non-intrusive, relaxing process. A session lasts approximately 45 minutes to an hour. It is usually done with the recipient lying down, fully clothed on a couch.
The therapist gently places their hands over the body enabling the recipient to draw the energy to where it is needed. Each position is held for a few minutes. There is no pressure, making it an ideal treatment for the very young, the elderly, pregnant women and those recovering from surgery.
During the treatment you may feel a pleasant sensation of warmth or a gentle tingling in the area being touched. You should feel a deep sense of relaxation and well being.
