Experience this ancient healing art!
The World Reiki Association says, Reiki is an ancient healing art that has been around for thousands of years. In the mid 1800's a spiritual man, Mikao Usui re discovered Reiki while meditating at one of the sacred mountains, near the city of Kyoto. Dr. Usui soon established healing centers in Tokyo where he created the three levels of training.
Reiki is a Japanese word. Rei-meaning "higher power" and Ki-meaning "universal life force energy". Therefore, Reiki is "spiritually guided life force energy".We know that Reiki uses universal energy to heal from the inside out and that it works not only on the physical level, but the emotional, mental, and spiritual levels as well.
Reiki heals by directing universal energy to flow through ones body, freeing for restrictions, blockages or negative energy. This allows the life force energy to flow in a healthy, balanced, and natural way.
What Happens in a session?
The practitioner holds several points on the body lightly for several minutes, thus allowing deep relaxation and energy flow to occur. Clients comment that they fill a warm glow around them during the session. Suzi tends to incoorporate Reiki into all of her bodywork sessions because it facilitates such deep stillness and connection for the client. It also helps the body to integrate the changes that come with deep tissue bodywork.
