Reiki treats the whole person, bringing the mind, body and soul into balance. Reiki touch is light and gentle and relief is brought about through the use of hands laid on or above the body in key positions in order to enhance the body’s own ability to create the ideal state of relaxation to facilitate relief of stressors that trigger illness, fatigue and anxiety. A typical Reiki session involves a relaxed atmosphere, similar to massage. Clients are always fully-clothed, and are typically led to lie down. Practitioners lightly place their hands on or above various locations throughout the body, focusing on the 7 chakras (or energy centers). Treatments and techniques may vary, as Reiki involves using intuition to help guide the treatment. Reiki can complement massage and chiropractic treatments as a limited-contact, non-invasive form of relaxation therapy. In fact the practice is growing in awareness and becoming a popularly-requested supplementary treatment. Massage and Chiropractic work at the very obvious physical level while Reiki works on a more subtle, energetic level that is less obvious. Reiki therapy offers a more relaxed and slow-moving approach. In essence, especially when combined with traditional methods of treatment Reiki can aid in the recovery of the physical, mental and spiritual body.
