A gentle, safe healing technique
What is Reiki?
Reiki is a form of energy therapy that helps your body do what it knows best, and that is to HEAL!
Energy flows through all of us like a river, if the flow becomes blocked due to stress, trauma or other reasons then Reiki can help restore the flow of energy.
The word Reiki (pronounced Ray-key) is Japanese which means Universal Life Force Energy -
"Rei" = Universal/Unlimited and
"ki" = the life force energy that flows through all living things.
If the life force is low, or there is a blockage of life force within the body, then we are more prone to illness or lowered resistance.
Reiki Healing does not claim to cure illnesses but is used as a complementary therapy with other mainstream therapies.
What to expect in a Reiki Session:
In your first session, the practitioner will spend around 20 minutes discussing your current health and wellbeing. At the close of the session, there will be an opportunity to understand and discuss how the session went and any recommendations or adjustments moving forward. When energetic shifts are occuring, emotions may be stirred up - this is ok and it is healing to release.
The Reiki Treatment:
Reiki is performed while fully clothed on a comfortable, padded table. If needed due to injury or health conditions, it can occur whilst seated.
Quiet music is played in the background whilst you relax into a meditative state. It is a process of "laying on of the hands" above or lightly touching the body while channeling the vital energy. You may feel nothing specific, or some people feel warmth or a movement of energy within the body.

How does it work?
Reiki is a natural, safe and simple system of healing and spiritual development. The difference between Reiki and other healing methods is that the ability to use Reiki is passed to the student via an attunement from the teacher. (Click HERE to learn about my Reiki Lineage). It's like being tuned to a radio station! When the practitioner lays hands on or above the client, the Reiki energy flows through the practitioners hands and into the client.
The person giving the Reiki treatment acts as a channel for the Reiki energy which is spiritually guided by the person receiving the treatment, to wherever the healing is required. The healing is therefore not coming from the practitioner, but rather through them.
How will I feel after a session?
You may feel quite light and ungrounded as soon as you get off the table. Kama allows you ample time to ease yourself off the table and have some water. Water is very helpful for grounding so is very helpful and important as soon as the healing has finished and for a few days following.
After your session, emotions can flow, you may feel tired or energised. It is important to let your practitioner know of you have any questions or concerns.
