What is Reiki?
Reiki is an ancient art of natural hands on healing. Reiki is simple and effective, working on the emotions, mind and spirit, as well as the physical body.
Treatment practitioners access Reiki energy using gentle contact through a sequence of hand positions, enhancing the recipients sense of wellbeing and peace, supporting and accelerating the body's innate ability to heal itself.
Reiki treatment is a safe, non-invasive, non-manipulative, hands on healing method which restores natural balance to the systems of the body, as a result of which symptoms and illness may be relieved.
Common effects of Reiki treatment include improved sleep, improved mood, reduction of anxiety, pain relief and deep relaxation, thus evoking a sense of peace and well being.
Reiki stands on its own as a healing practice and is also widely used to complement orthodox and complementary forms of therapy. Reiki is becoming increasingly recognised as being a supportive and beneficial healing modality.
Reiki is not intrusive as it will pass through clothing, bandages, braces, plaster casts: no disrobing is necessary. Treatment can be received by a person lying down or sitting in a chair, in the home or hospital, as well as at Bloomhill. Treatment does not involve massage or hypnosis.
There is no connection with any religion, dogma, or particular belief system. The only prerequisite to benefit from Reiki is to be open and willing to receive the energy, which is Universal life source.
Reiki treatment is given not to attack disease, but rather to support the person experiencing disease. There are no contra-indications and it will not interfere with medical treatments or medications, but encourages the rebalancing of the entire system, thereby perhaps lessening side effects and increasing tolerance to invasive procedures. People receiving Reiki often require less analgesic medication.
Reiki is a safe and effective tool for reducing stress and promoting relaxation. Healthy people also benefit from Reiki as it supports continued well being. Choosing to experience Reiki is a choice of self-healing and empowerment.
At Bloomhill, Reiki treatments are available to clients, their carers and families.
