If Massage is a term given to nurturing, restoration and replenishment of the physical body, then Reiki would be its older, wiser and loving sister on the next level. That is, it is the nurturing, restoration and replenishment of the physical, mental, emotional and spiritual bodies.
Reiki is like a massage on an auric or energetic level. The flow of Universal Life Energy through us is what keeps us alive! Return to a place of inner peace and tranquillity as you feel the flow of this life Energy through your entire being.
Reiki is a Japanese technique that is used to heal physical and mental trauma, and to support mental clarity and spiritual well-being. To administer Reiki, our practitioner channels life force energy through his or her hands. It’s said that the spiritual guidance enables the Reiki to flow through the affected parts of the subject’s energy field and charges them with positive energy. It raises awareness in and around the physical body where negative thoughts and feelings are contained. This causes the negative energy – such as stress, anxiety, physical pain, sadness, confusion, etc. to loosen its grip, allowing the touch of the Reiki healer to swoop in and clarify the energy pathways.
