Reiki The Healing Touch
Monumental Wellness is delighted to now offer Reiki healing as one of our services. Many may have heard of reiki but don’t know exactly what it is. Reiki (pronounced ray-key) is a Japanese technique for stress reduction and relaxation that promotes healing. The Rei- means spiritual wisdom and the Ki means life energy. It is the non-physical energy that animates all living things.
Reiki healing is guided by spiritual consciousness. Because of this, reiki can never cause harm. The reiki practitioner does not do the healing or make the decision of what needs to be healed. That would be ego. Instead, it is the spiritual consciousness that guides the healing. The practitioner is just a vessel.
So How Does Reiki Heal?
Our Ki (life force) responds to our thoughts and feelings, both positive and negative. Positive thoughts increase the flow of our Ki. Negative thoughts diminish our Ki. When these negative thoughts become lodged in our subconscious mind, they create permanent disruption in the flow of healthy Ki. It becomes byoki (unhealthy Ki) and attaches itself to our organs and bodily tissues disrupting their vital functions. Unless this byoki is released, a person can become ill.
When you receive a Reiki session, the Rei assesses the body and where the byoki has lodged itself. Reiki raises the vibratory level in and around the physical body where the negative thoughts and feelings have attached. This causes the negative energy to break apart and fall away. This allows Reiki to clear, straighten, and heal the pathways allowing healthy Ki to flow.
What You Can Expect at Your Session
We will spend a few moments establishing a rapport. You will then fully and comfortably recline on massage table (unless you have mobility issues). You will remain fully clothed. Generally, the process is non-invasive with the practitioner’s hands hovering over you a few inches. I tend to touch at the crown (head) but always ask permission first. Most clients fall into a very relaxed meditative state for the duration of the session. Most sessions are 45-90minutes.
Wellness is so much more than just our physical body. Our energetic health is of optimal importance today. Invest in your self-care and schedule a Reiki session today.
