Reiki Healing

Usui Reiki

Reiki is a Japanese form of hands on healing, Rei meaning life and Ki meaning energy. Reiki is a gentle energy that works by balancing your energy system and so assisting the body to heal itself. Reiki has a wonderful way of promoting a deep sense of relaxation which I personally have not felt in any other holistic treatment. Reiki is used to promote well being in both physical and emotional matters by putting your body in the best position to cope with those little annoyances that crop up in our lives every now and again. Reiki is particularly good for aiding restful sleep and helping those relax when suffering from anxiety.

Usui Reiki is what most people offer when they say "Reiki".

That's all very nice but WHAT is Reiki??

Reiki is sometimes difficult to explain, as in the Western culture we are only just starting to understand and appreciate the idea of Ki, Chi or Prana which in the Eastern world is incorporated into a lot of their daily life - take for example Feng Shui, Acupuncture and even martial arts. They all work with this energy. Reiki is slightly different in that the Reiki Practitioner will connect to the universal life force energy and will channel it through their hands into the client, there is no transfer of personal energy during the treatment.

Karuna Reiki

Karuna Reiki® works with the same lovely energy as Usui Reiki and Drum Reiki but also encorporates other energies into the mix by the use of symbols channelled by . Working with the ascended masters and angelic beings the practitioner will chant or sing the symbols names during the treatment (this is a typical Karuna Reiki treatment but you can opt out of the sound experience). I can assure you that I have been told the experience of my singing during a treatment is highly healing and intesifies the experience (that is not meant with ego!) 

Reiki Drum

The drum has always been a sacred tool to the Shaman of many indigenous people from around the world with ceremonial rites, meditation and healing. Combining Reiki and Drumming utilises the drum to introduce Reiki energy into a person’s energy field to aid in deep relaxation.The drum rhythm awakens a primal reaction within the body and a sense of a forgotten way of healing. The drum seems to produce a much deeper sense of relaxation (which in turn will enable the body to heal itself). The drum may only be used for a short part of the treatment due to it's ability in increasing the flow of energy. Scientific research has indicated that even drumming for a short period of time can induce an alpha state (the brainwaves associated with wellbeing). Drumming helps people address emotional issues as well as aiding in the removal of blockages. Drum studies have also been linked drumming with positive effects on Alzheimer and Dementia patients, emotional issues, recovering addicts and trauma patients. Reiki drum can also be used as a way to change negative thought patterns and journeying to meet your power animal. Reiki Drum healing can also be used to reframe negative thoughts and habits over a number of treatments.
