When we use Reiki as a therapy, to treat, heal and support the natural energy within others, and ourselves we use our understanding of the Rei and the Ki to work with the healing energy to areas within the body and mind which have blockages.

Working with the energy in this way releases those blockages, allowing the flow of energy to increase, which improves our overall wellbeing and heals the areas, which were physically unwell.

Where the Ki suffers a blockage the organs or areas of the body effected by that blockage become unhealthy. Releasing that blockage means that the physical area can heal, and that overall health is improved by this free-flowing energy.

A Reiki treatment generally follows the same pattern, whether the person carrying out the treatment has Reiki 1, Reiki 2 or is a Reiki Master. The person receiving treatment lies comfortably and the practitioner places their hands on or close to the body, holding them in place in place in various positions around the body, holding the hands for a few minutes in each location.

A treatment takes around an hour, and some people feel a warmth, a tingling sensation, or a flow of energy.

Some people feel calmed and relaxed by a treatment, others feel energised; some experience a wave of emotions, and some see colours flowing around them or behind their closed eyes. All of this is normal when experiencing a Reiki treatment.

Reiki can be used to treat a specific condition – and there is no limit to the conditions that Reiki can be beneficial for – or can be used regularly to maintain and improve overall wellbeing.

The nature of Reiki energy means that it is important not to have any specific expectation of what the Reiki treatment will do – no practitioner can, or should, claim that they can cure an ailment with Reiki – by its very nature, Reiki energy flows to where it is most needed, and that may be something that our conscious minds are unaware of.

The benefits of Reiki differ from person to person, and are impacted by the physical, mental, emotional and spiritual state of the person receiving treatment. The practitioner doesn’t guide or direct the flow of energy, but instead is a focus point which allows the energy to flow to where it is needed, guided by the energy itself.
