Reiki (continued)

How Does Reiki Work?


Reiki works mainly on balancing the 7 major energy centres within the body, called "chakras".  Chakras are spinning vortexes of energy which draw in the energy from our energy fields (the aura) and are responsible for storing, regulating and distributing our vital life force energy or "Ki"  to our organs and physical bodies.


As the Reiki energy flows from my hands into you, you will feel more and more relaxed and will usually feel the warmth from my hands in the areas that are being treated.  People find Reiki treatments both an enjoyable and a very relaxing experience and report that they leave feeling calm yet more energised and refreshed with an improved feeling of wellbeing.


During our lives we hold on to old painful memories, beliefs, emotions and negative thoughts which we store in our energy fields.   Our chakras eventually get depleted and clogged up with these so that they are unable to spin and effectively stop distributing our Ki energy flow which can then becomes blocked or weakened.  This results in us suffering discomfort, physical pain, illness and dis-ease..  When Reiki energy is channelled through my hands to you, it gently unblocks the disturbances to your own energy flow, heps to release past distress and upset which are held there enabling your vital Ki energy to flow more freely so that you feel better.


Scientific research has shown that Reiki’s healing energy regulates injury, repair and recovery as well as system rebalance and that the recipient's brainwaves move into the “alpha” sate (characteristic of a meditative state) which is why you experience a feeling of deep relaxation.  


Reiki works in conjunction with all medical treatments to relieve side effects.



Who Can Have Reiki?


Anyone!  Reiki is safe and can benefit anybody of any age with or without any religious beliefs.  Reiki treats any ailment which affects the physical body, the emotions, the mind and the spirit.


Children and adolescents are especially receptive to Reiki and enjoy having time to relax and unwind away from the stresses and demands of their busy lives too.  



How Does Reiki Help?


People come to see me for Reiki treatments at A Time For You Reiki & Counselling, Swindon for a variety of different reasons which are of an emotional, physical  and psychological nature such as stress, anxiety, panic attacks, sleep problems, worries, low energy levels, headaches, aches and pains and much much more.


You could come for a Reiki treatment purely because you want to escape, unwind and relax and treat yourself to some "me" time.  


Or you could come for help with specific issues or probems such as anxiety, pain, anger, depression and stress or if you are upset or worried about something in particular or maybe are feeling a bit stuck in your life but not sure how to move forward.  As I am a trained counsellor I am well qualified to listen and offer you help and support with any current or past issues that you may have.  


Equally you could come for a Reiki treatment because you are  feeling a bit out of sorts or are feeling tired and drained.  Reiki helps with physical pain too and can help with symptoms of illness such as fibromyalgia or chronic fatigue.  Reiki is great for pregnant mums and is helpful if your are undergoing medical treatment as it can help to relieve side effects of prescribed medications such as chemotherapy.



How Does Combining Reiki With Other Therapies That I Offer Help?


Reiki combines well with talking therapy and I can offer Reiki and hypnotherapy combined in a treatment.  When you have a Reiki treatment you will feel relaxed and calm and safe to talk about anything that is bothering you.  Alternatively Reiki can be offered towards the end of your session of talking or EFT (time permitting) so that you leave feeling relaxed and refreshed.




If you are feeling well, Reiki can help to maintain your wellbeing too.  For more information about how Reiki can help you please contact me.
