Relaxation & Natural Healing From Within

Relaxation and natural healing from within

It is amazing to think that almost two and a half thousand years ago Hippocrates recognised that the human body had an ability to heal itself, in fact the human body naturally tends towards health. In the East many of the practices that were popular in Hippocrates time are still practised and indeed are steadily gaining popularity in the West.  It’s an exciting time as we come to realise that Western and Eastern medicine can work together holistically to promote a healthy mind, body, and spirit.

Reiki promotes wellbeing in the mind, body and spirit.

The Origins

Reiki (pronounced ray-key) is a Japanese word meaning Universal Life Force Energy, an energy which is not only flowing within each of us but also flows throughout the universe.  This system of natural healing works not only on the physical body but also on the mind and spirit.

This simple, yet beautiful system of healing evolved in Japan from the experience and dedication of Mikao Usui (1865 – 1926).  In 1922 Usui visited Mount Kurama in Kyoto, Japan and began a 21 day period of meditation.  Whilst meditating Usui experienced a “Satori” or enlightenment, the result of which was the inspiration to develop a healing system from ancient teachings.  He spent the rest of his life practising and teaching his system of healing to others.

The Principles

Mikao Usui taught his system of healing in a structured form.  Not only did he give instructions on the system itself, he also required every student to adhere to the simple principles by which he lived his own life. The five key principles are very simple, yet very powerful if practised and followed daily.

They are shown below in Japanese with the English meaning: –

Of course it is not necessary to learn or use the principles if you are attending for treatment, however many people find they are increasingly drawn to the benefits of Reiki and embrace the principles as part of their everyday life.

Natural healing for conditions and problems

Reiki is a mind, body and spirit treatment, and a such promotes wellbeing in the physical, emotional and spiritual parts of a person.  It promotes overall wellness in a person by increasing their energy, emotional well-being, and spirit.  It can also be a useful complementary treatment to traditional medicine and can help with existing medical conditions.  Reiki is being utilised in hospitals, hospices, cancer and post operative recovery groups, care of the elderly and in private practice.

This simple and natural healing system promotes a healthier, calmer and more relaxed state of mind.  In this fast paced world that we live in regular use can enhance your ability to relax, improve creativity, and dissolve mental blocks and limiting beliefs. At Justletgo we have had very encouraging results using a combination of Reiki and Hypnotherapy for IBS sufferers.  It is particularly good for relaxing the IBS sufferer and Hypnotherapy has been shown to be an effective treatment for IBS in clinical trials and follow up treatment programmes.  More information about using hypnosis for IBS can be found on our IBS page.

A typical session

The method of receiving a treatment from a practitioner is a very simple process.  The recipient simply lies on a treatment table and relaxes.  If they are unable to lie down the treatment can be given in a sitting position, the main thing is for the recipient to be as comfortable as possible.

A Reiki practitioner allows the universal energy to flow into their body, and out via their hands. By placing their hands in a series of non-intrusive positions on or above the body it enables the client to draw the energy to any area where they require healing.  It is a simple system and requires no sudden movements, stress, or body manipulation.  There is no need to remove any clothing as the natural energy will pass through anything, even plaster casts.

Reiki is often experienced as a mild tingling, warmth, coolness, or other sensations.  Some people may not notice any sensations however the energy is still flowing and working as required, and almost everyone will benefit in some way from the healing energy.

REIKI FAQ

What is Reiki energy?

When someone receives a Reiki treatment the whole person is treated, that is, their body, mind and spirit rather than specific symptoms.  This is in accordance with the Eastern belief, that in treating the whole we promote wellness using the bodies inherent ability to heal itself.  It is administered by the practitioner tapping into the universal energy and directing it with their hands to the clients body.  They do not use their own energy but simply act as a conduit allowing the natural universal energy to flow to wherever it is required.

How long does a treatment take?

Treatments usually last for around one hour which includes a few minutes discussion with the therapist before the session and a short resting period after the treatment.

How many sessions do I need?

When you visit a Reiki practitioner they will first of all discuss your needs, take a short case history of any problems or issues you may have.  They will then devise a treatment plan and agree it with you, and of course this can be amended or reviewed as necessary.  Many people also enjoy having sessions for pure relaxation in the same way they would have a massage or a “pampering” session.

How is it administered?

The method of receiving a treatment from a practitioner is a very simple process, the recipient simply relaxes on a treatment table.  If they are unable to lie down the treatment can be given in a sitting position, the main thing is for the recipient to be as comfortable as possible.  A Reiki practitioner allows the universal energy to flow into their body, and out via their hands.  By placing their hands in a series of non-intrusive positions, on or above the body it enables the client to draw the energy to any area where they require healing.  It is a beautiful and simple system and requires no movement or manipulation of the body.  If you have experienced a massage and the relaxing feeling associated with it, then perhaps you can imagine how relaxing Reiki will feel with little or no physical contact to disturb your ability to let go.  There is no need to remove any clothing as the energy will pass through anything, even plaster casts.

What will I experience during a Reiki treatment?

Reiki is often experienced as a mild tingling, warmth, coolness, or other sensations, but for the majority of people the main feeling is that of complete and total relaxation.  You may also experience the release of everyday stress, tension, anxiety or negativity.  Some people may not notice any sensations, however, the energy is still flowing and working as required.  At the end of the session most people feel relaxed with a positive outlook and many feel a new energy and zest for life.

Is Reiki compatible with my religious beliefs?

Reiki is not a religion or a religious belief system.  Those who make the system a part of their life walk the path to spiritual enlightenment, often discovering who they really are and what is important in their lives.  It is based on the principle that a greater being created the universe and everything in it and gave us the ability to utilise the abundance of energy throughout it to promote self healing.

Can animals be treated?

Animals love receiving Reiki!  We have seen dogs, cats, and horses recover and obtain relief from many conditions after receiving a treatment. Animals will accept the healing energy readily and some seem to sense it is available even before you treat them.  They will often approach the practitioner even before the energy flow begins!
