Reiki (pronounced “ray-key”) is an energy healing system based on the teaching and practices of the Buddhist Mikao Usui in the first part of the twentieth century in Japan.
The word “reiki” loosely translates as “universal life force energy”. Reiki functions on the principle that we all have an energy body or auric field in addition to our physical body. Our energy body is formed of higher finer vibrations and co-exists/interacts with our physical body. Blockages in our energy body can manifest as physical pain/tension, emotional imbalances and illness, as well as hindering energy circulation within the body. The Reiki healing technique is centered on how to use and harness and use this life supporting energy, to release blocks to bring balance on the physical level, emotional level, mental level and spiritual level.
Whilst experiencing Reiki many clients enter a meditative state and connect with themselves on a deep level. This is the state in which we are able to generate self-healing on all levels and access the vast knowledge already within us. Because of this it is not uncommon for a client to gain increased insight and intuition following a session, or to have visions or vivid dreams. Although Reiki is an intensely personal experience, the overwhelming feeling for many clients is a feeling of profound relaxation, warmth and restoration.
During a Reiki session Jane connects to Reiki (universal life force energy), and facilitates an energy transfer to the client. Reiki is given primarily through the hands of the practitioner and is a clothes-on therapy, where the hands are placed discreetly on various parts of the body or in the aura of energy around the body.
