What is reiki?

Reiki is an ancient Japanese technique that is used to heal physical and mental trauma, and to support mental clarity and spiritual well-being. In Japanese, the word “rei” refers to a higher intelligence that permeates all living and non living entities and guides the inherent functioning of the universe. The word “ki” refers to the nonphysical life force energy that flows through everything that is alive, including animals, plants, and human beings. ki is also often called “life force energy,” and is known as qi or chi from other traditions. The combination of these two words is what defines reiki as “spiritually guided life-force energy.”

To administer Reiki, a practitioner channels life force energy through his or her hands unto another. It’s said that the aforementioned spiritual guidance enables the Reiki to flow through the affected parts of the subject’s energy field and charges them with positive energy. It heightens their vibration, and raises awareness in and around the physical body where negative thoughts and feelings are contained. This causes the energy—such as stress, anxiety, physical pain, sadness, confusion, (which left untreated can manifest into physical disease or ailments) to break down, allowing the touch of the Reiki practitioner clarify the energy pathways.

What can I expect to experience in a reiki session?

During the session you may feel deeply relaxed, you may feel warmth, tingling, sometimes a feeling of “out of body” or being “out of this world” perhaps moving in and out of consciousness (dream state) you may feel strong emotions as any blockages are being removed.

After the sessions, you can expect to feel more energised, light- and perhaps even emotional. Some people experience a healing crisis, where, deep rooted traumatic energy is able to be brought to the surface for the person to access and process those challenges, in order for them to be released. Resulting again, in lightness, happiness and a decrease/complete removal of physical pain or disease caused by that blockage/issue and a feeling of complete balance.

How many sessions will I need?

It all depends on your energetic body and personal needs. Some people may need more sessions than others and may have more to work through. The first sessions opens up blockages and brings forth realisations for the person to work through, in this instance, a second sessions is advised to go deeper to just cleanse any remaining deep energy, and to close, a 3rd session, to balance and bring the energy body into alignment.

Nearly two years ago I met Hannah and a wonderful journey of self-discovery and self-acceptance started. I chose the path of Yoga and meditation after years of addictions, anxiety and self loathing had left me pretty broken.
Fast forward nearly two years later, 3 stone lighter and pretty positive in life I came to Hannah for my weekly Yoga lesson. I was feeling pretty flat and pathetic after struggling with a long term sinus problem. I was aware Hannah had studied Reiki healing and we had talked about her wonderful experiences during her training and she explained to me how energy healing targets the energy fields around the body helping to relieve blockages and how this may help relieve the tension I was experiencing in my forehead.
I have now had two healing sessions with Hannah and WOW!! I was shocked by how much emotion I was holding in. Hannah is genuine, kind and makes you feel comfortable and at ease, she pointed out where my blockages were, and she was able to give an insight into its deeper meaning and actual origin in my body. It was after our 2nd session that I could really feel a difference, rejuvenated and noticeably more energised, motivated and calm. A long-term sinus issue I have was noticeably better and I am looking forward to continuing these sessions.
