Reiki and Counseling
What is Reiki?
Reiki is a Japanese form of energy medicine. "Rei" means Spirit-guided, and "Ki" means life-force energy. Thus, Reiki is Spirit-guided life-force energy.
What is A Reiki Session Like?
Clients lie fully clothed, face-up, on a comfortable massage table. Starting at the head and moving to the feet, Reiki energy is sent from
the practitioner's hands to the client's body and energy field around the body. Reiki energy is warm and clients will feel heat coming from the practitioner's hands.
What Does the Client Need to Do?
Clients may want to wear comfortable clothing, and set an intention for the session. Reiki energy is intelligent, though, and will go where it is needed. Once on the table, clients simply close their eyes and drift away.
What Are The Benefits of Reiki?
Reiki is very relaxing and provides non-linear multidimensional healing on the
the Mental, Emotional, Physical and Spiritual levels. Following a session, clients often report decreased feelings of anxiety and depression, and increased feelings of peace and wellbeing.
Where Did Reiki Come From?
Dr. Mikau Usui, who was born in Japan in 1865, is the founder of Reiki. Dr. Usui studied in the East and West, learning physical and spiritual medicine and, at one point, became a Tendai Buddhist Monk. Dr. Usui received inspiration for the Reiki system of healing uring one of several 21-day meditations he undertook on Mount Kurama.
How Do You Learn Reiki?
Reiki is not learned in the usual way, but is passed from Master to student via attunements which are sacred symbols
placed in the student's energy field. The Reiki practiced at Heartfelt Healing traces its lineage directly to Dr. Usui.
Is Reiki a Religion?
Reiki is not a religion but it is spiritual in nature and promotes feelings of peacefulness and connection to the Divine.
