An ancient healing art to replenish the body's vital energy
Reiki is an ancient healing art that utilizes gentle touch to channel universal vital energy to promote healing and relaxation. There is vital energy in and around us at all times. When this energy is in balance we live in a state of health and well-being. When our vital energy is out of balance pain and illness can result. In strengthening the body's vital energy Reiki supports the body's innate ability to heal itself and restore balance and homeostasis.
A treatment with Reiki is usually a deeply relaxing experience; muscle tension decreases, breathing patterns slow down as the breath deepens. It is non-invasive and safe with no contraindications. It is performed with the client sitting or lying down, fully clothed. The practitioner gently places both hands on various areas of the client's body, acting as a conduit for vital energy to flow.
Reiki can be used for deep relaxation and healing, to help manage pain and stress and is an effective and gentle adjunct to other types of therapy. At Bodymind it is used in conjunction with other body therapies.
