reiki energy healing

Reiki is a Japanese technique for stress reduction and relaxation that also promotes healing.  It is administered by laying on hands and is based on the idea that an unseen life force energy flows through us and is what causes us to be alive.  If one's life force energy is low, then we are more likely to get sick or feel stress.  If it is high, we are more capable of being happy and healthy.

The word Reiki is made of two Japanese words.  Rei means God's wisdom or the higher power, and Ki means life force energy.  Put together, it means spiritually guided life force energy.  A treatment feels like a wonderful glowing radiance that flows through and around you.  Clients may feel warmth or tingling sensations that are soothing and relaxing.  Reiki treats the whole person including body, emotions, mind, and spirit creating feelings of peace, serenity, and well-being.

reiki bodywork

Reiki Bodywork blends hands-on body work with Reiki energy to create an integrated whole-self healing working with the physical, energetic, and spiritual bodies simultaneously. The practitioner systematically works the muscles gently while infusing the body with Reiki energy.  This enables clients to open up more fully to the healing energy of Reiki.  Reiki Bodywork promotes the deepest state of relaxation which allows the body to utilize it’s own natural healing abilities. After treatment, most clients report achieving deeper states of relaxation, less stress, and longer lasting results.

The purpose of Reiki Bodywork is for relaxation and healing.  Because we are not massage therapists, clients remain fully clothed, and we do not use body oil or lotion.

the science behind Reiki

How does Reiki actually work?

Research into this matter is gradually gaining speed, with much being done in the electromagnetic field of all living things, and the pathways for which this energy is transferred within the body.

Our physical bodies have a mesh of tubes made up of collagen and filled with a very fine fluid, called the myofascial system which links all parts of us, sort of like an energetic superhighway. The myofascial system carries signals in the form of tiny... electrical light impulses called biophotons (literally meaning biological light) which are said to be the smallest sparks of conscious energy, carrying the very building blocks of life and allows all cells to communicate with one another.

The amazing thing is, that these biophotons have actually been photographed in a single drop of water using a somatoscope with a magnification of 30000x. What researchers found was that a single biophoton goes through a series of changes in shape, showing ancient symbols that we recognise from ancient culture and religion, starting as a single point of light, going through a series of six pointed stars and ending in the flower of life.

It clearly seems to me that our ancestors knew much more than we do now about life and left us these clues in the form of symbology—but that’s a whole other subject that I should probably not get into here.

We know now that energy, carrying messages and information, is constantly moving throughout both our electromagnetic fields and our physical body in the form of light. This light is everywhere and in everything, vibrating at different speeds as was previously mentioned, and imperceptible to the limited capabilities of our basic five senses.

The myofascial system is probably one of the most important systems in the body and also one of the most over-looked. Within us the myofascial system has seven major points where there is much more fascia than in other areas which, funnily enough, correspond to the seven main energy centres, or more commonly, chakras.

It stands to reason that if there is more fascia in these areas, more biophtons would be found here since the mesh of tubes is much thicker, creating a larger energy hot spot, so to speak. In standard Reiki treatments, it is with these areas that the practitioner will work with the most.
