A Reiki practitioner has been attuned to the healing energy field that surrounds us in the Universe. They are a channel for this healing energy to enter the client's body and increase the flow of positive energy. This stimulates and activates their energy system and through these gentle non-intrusive techniques the healing begins. Reiki can be given seated or on a plinth where the client lies down with their eyes closed. The client remains fully dressed and is covered with a blanket for warmth and comfort. The Reiki practitioner will then place her hands on to the client with the intent of transmitting the healing energy of the Universe to the client. Generally they will feels a warm / cold tingling sensation in the palms of the hands. The client receiving Reiki will acquire a sense of inner tranquility, deep relaxation, sometimes a meditative state, some fall asleep and they may also feel some heat flowing through their body. Hand positions used are on / above the client's head, over the eyes, shoulders, limbs and trunk. Reiki energy will flow to the area of the mind or body that needs this energy most. Some clients have found that during a Reiki session they have received insights into issues that they were facing in their lives. Others have found alleviation of physical symptoms.
