Reiki - Alafia holistics




Reiki (pronounced Ray-Key) is a Japanese word meaning Universal Life Force Energy. It is a form of energy healing.  Energy is present around every living thing and is known as an aura.  When we are stressed or ill our aura becomes imbalanced. Reiki gently re-dresses this.  Its origins can be traced back to the nineteenth century to the dedication and spiritual beliefs of Dr. Mikao Usui and all qualified Reiki healers should be able to show clients their lineage tracing back to Dr.Usuis’ teachings. Reiki is a gentle energy and may be used safely by all ages, including the newborn, pregnant mothers, surgical patients, the frail and the elderly, regardless of their state of health. Reiki can enhance everyday life, and regular sessions help to ward-off illness and fatigue. Whether one is suffering from stress or tension, and the many symptoms associated with this, or wishing to improve the quality of relationships at home or work, the beneficial effects of Reiki can work on many levels. Depression and ME sufferers benefit from Reiki and sports injuries and broken bones have healed much faster.  At the other end of the scale Reiki can be used as a wonderful treat to top up the system and enhance your life as it works not only on health problems but also on the emotional, mental and spiritual planes as well.

What Happens During A Reiki Session?
Reiki takes place in quiet tranquil surroundings, which in itself promotes relaxation, whilst a client is lying fully clothed on a couch, or sitting in a chair. The practitioner places their hands on or above the major organs in the body.  Reiki energy will be drawn in by the client and go to where it is most needed.    Some feel the “electricity” passing through various limbs or tingling or warm sensations, some smell scents, see visions, some feel as if they have reverted to the safety of the womb and some just fall asleep. Whatever you might feel these are merely side effects of the healing process and it is best to enter a treatment with no expectations.

Healing takes place by unblocking and rebalancing the chakra system through the transmission of Reiki energy.  Any negative vibrations are lifted and an awareness of well-being is allowed to take place.  Reiki energy will help promote the body to heal itself either along side of conventional medicine or as an alternative preventative treatment.  It must not however take the place of any medical advice or diagnosis.  In short, Reiki clears and heals physical and emotional blockages so allowing the free flow of positive energy back into the system.  Treatment is enhanced if one can rest for a while afterwards and drink plenty of water to help the body detox, the beneficial effects may be felt for several days.

How often do I need a treatment?
Although even one Reiki session can make a difference, it is usually more effective to have a course of regular treatments. This may be weekly, fortnightly or monthly depending on the needs of the individual.
