What is Energy Work?
Energy Medicine and Tonic treatments such as Reiki are experiencing a rapid increase in popularity with good reason. Recipients report effects such as: increased energy & creativity, release of stress, balancing of moods, increased awareness, and supportive healing conditions.
If we are a healthy person, Reiki can provide deep relaxation, and increase our feelings of well being. Reiki supports the clearing of stressful energies that build up in the course of normal life. Less stress plus more energy helps us succeed.
If we are experiencing a health concern then Reiki can play a role in complimenting other modalities we may employ to heal ourselves. Increased relaxation can increase our own healing response.
Reiki is the Japanese word for 'Universal Life Energy'. It is an ancient art, a holistic approach. Like the 'laying on of hands' or 'therapeutic touch,' it treats our body with its many energies and processes through a gentle, non-invasive, relaxing flow of energy.
It works a little like a battery charger. When a battery is low it doesn't function well and this is the same with our bodies. Stress or illness can use up some of our energy and this can lead us to feel fatigued, or not quite ourselves. We may lose our motivation, or zest. Reiki can help us relax and restore our energy, and this process doesn't deplete the practitioner because we are able to tap into the source of the universal life energy and channel it to you.
Who can benefit from a Reiki treatment? Basically, everyone! If you are healthy then the energy can help you feel clear and balanced. If you have been diagnosed with a disease Reiki assists the natural healing process. While it IS NOT a substitute for appropriate medical care, it can be used in conjunction with other treatments.
