REIKI DISTANCE THERAPY
The Japanese word ‘Reiki’ literally translates as universal life force energy. This system of healing was developed by Mikao Usui in the early 20th century. It is a non-invasive complementary therapy that has been taught and used in the UK since the late 1900s, but Eastern medicine has for thousands of years worked with this energy, recognising its flow through all living things. Reiki supports orthodox medicine or can be used alone but is not a replacement for traditional medication or treatments. It is not based on any belief, faith or suggestion, yet, scientific research using quantum physics is starting to help us to understand how reiki may work to benefit the individual. It has been suggested that in years to come it may be known as energy medicine based on scientifically measurable energy emitted from the healer’s hands.
Also known as a simple, natural and safe method of healing and self-improvement that everyone can use. It has been effective in helping virtually every known illness and malady and always creates a beneficial effect. It also works in conjunction with all other medical or therapeutic techniques to relieve side effects and promote recovery.

WHAT TO EXPECT DURING A SESSION
Reiki can be given hands on, hands off or from a great distance--even across the world. You remain fully clothed, though removing your shoes may make you more comfortable. Usually Reiki is given while you are lying down, though it is possible to give a Reiki treatment while you sit in a chair. I will place my hands in a series of positions on or near your head, chest and abdomen. Reiki will go where it is needed.
During Reiki, you will become deeply relaxed, and many people fall asleep. You may find laughter or tears coming to the surface as your body and mind release toxins. This is normal and part of the process for many people. Sessions generally last an hour or so, but you can schedule a half hour, if you prefer.
WHAT TO EXPECT AFTER A SESSION
You may find that you spend more time in the bathroom for the next 24-48 hours. This is your body releasing toxins and flushing them out. Please drink extra water to encourage this process and boost the healing.
Some people find that they need a bit of extra rest over the next day or so after a Reiki session. Others are full of energy right away. Things will balance out for you after a few days. You may find your appetite decreases or increases. This does not happen with everyone, but again, this is your body balancing itself out. Follow your best judgement and your doctor's advice regarding diet.
Occasionally symptoms will temporarily become slightly worse in the first day or two. This is because your body is working to release old toxins and adjust itself into balance. This should pass after a couple of days. Please contact me if you are concerned or have questions.
Reiki will continue to do it's healing work for up to a few days after the Reiki session ends. Be kind and gentle with yourself as your healing takes place.
