Reiki Healing is a deeply relaxing, yet powerful natural energy healing science, which accelerates the body’s natural ability to heal, restore, and maintain balanced health and well-being. Reiki works holistically, by treating the spiritual, emotional, and mental causes of an illness, as well as the physical symptoms. Reiki works directly to:
Improve the body’s ability to repair and heal itself
Restore vital energy levels
Promote a balanced state of health and well-being
It is based on the understanding that all illness and disease comes about as a result of the natural flow of ‘Life-force energy’ within us, being impaired in some way.
Reiki healing treatments work to unblock the body’s energy pathways on all levels, and to treat the causes, as well as the physical symptoms, of illness and disease.
Reiki treatments work to:
Effectively reduce feelings of stress and anxiety
Assist in relieving pain such as muscle, nerve pain, and pain within the skeletal system
Improve the body’s energy levels
Strengthen and support the immune system
Help to balance blood pressure levels
Accelerate the body’s natural healing processes
Promote the removal of toxins from the body
Complement traditional medicine and improve its results
What Happens During A Treatment?
In a peaceful and nurturing environment, appointments take place during a time period of usually between 30 minutes and 1 hour.
At your first consultation with Elizabeth you will be asked questions about your health and lifestyle, this is an important aspect of treatment as it is beneficial for Elizabeth to have an understanding of all factors that may be affecting your health, including how you feel physically and emotionally. And, therefore, you may be advised accordingly on how you may be able to enhance or implement a healthcare routine in your daily life.
Patients are usually lying down during a treatment session. A patient seated in a chair can also receive Reiki healing. The deep relaxation experienced during treatments often cause patients to fall asleep, or enter into a deep state of relaxation. The patient may, or may not, experience feeling sensations of increased heat in certain areas as the practitioner places their hands on, or over, the patients body to work on the patients energy. Whether a patient experiences any sensations, however, does not relate to the effectiveness of the treatment. The treatment in itself is extremely relaxing, and works to promote a calm, peaceful sense of well-being.
How Many Treatments Will I Need?
This varies on an individual basis, often some effects are experienced just after one treatment, however, a series of treatments are usually needed to make a significant change in a condition and to monitor a patient’s rate of healing progress.
Typically a patient may choose to visit either on consecutive days in the case of chronic conditions, or alternatively, weekly, until consistent improvement is recorded, progressing to fortnightly and then monthly intervals to maintain balanced health and well-being.
• Reiki is a gentle complementary therapy that may be used with confidence alongside orthodox healthcare. As such, it expands treatment options.
• Reiki is not, however, an alternative to conventional medical care. You should always consult your GP about acute or infectious conditions, and in connection with problems of an urgent nature.
• People of all ages, including pregnant mothers, new borns, surgical patients, the frail and elderly, and in any situation can benefit from Reiki treatments.
• Reiki healing is a non-invasive therapy, which does not involve hypnosis, manipulation or massage. There is no need to disrobe to receive a Reiki treatment.
Do General Healthcare Services Offer Reiki Treatments to Patients?
Reiki treatments are practiced in various locations including: private practice, complementary therapy centres, GP surgeries, hospitals, hospices, cancer support groups, post operative recovery, drug rehabilitation, prisons, HIV/AIDS centres, and in the care of the elderly, within the UK and globally.
Do General Healthcare Professionals Recognise Reiki Treatments to be Beneficial to Patients?
Many doctors, nurses and practitioners of other therapies, recognise that Reiki healing is a powerful natural phenomenon, and learn the skills of becoming a Reiki Healer to help maintain their own personal health, and enhance the effects of their work.
Nurses, particularly in specialist hospitals, who care for patients with severe burns, also use Reiki to enhance the medical procedures of patients during their recovery.
"After receiving my first Reiki healing treatment with Elizabeth, I felt 100% better than when I first arrived. I felt even better after my second treatment and will definitely be coming back for a further course of treatments" R.W.
