Reiki Los Angeles
Anyone can receive a Reiki session — many people use it for overall wellness. It’s a great tool for stress reduction and relaxation. However it should be noted that Reiki is not a cure for any disease or illness, but it may assist the body in creating an environment to facilitate healing.
Reiki is a spiritual healing art and a form of alternative medicine developed in 1922 by Japanese Buddhist Mikao Usui. The word Reiki is composed of two Japanese words — “Rei” which means “Universal Life” and “Ki” which means “Energy”. Reiki energy has an intelligence of its own flowing where it is needed in the client and creating the healing conditions necessary for the individuals needs.
A Reiki session can help ease tension and stress and can help support the body to facilitate an environment for healing on all levels — physical, mental, and emotional. Many people seek Reiki for their own personal wellness. You can find a local practitioner in Reiki Los Angeles or Reiki Torrance.
What can you expect in a session? The duration of a Reiki session is usually 60 to 90 minutes. Before the session, you will talk to the practitioner and discuss any problem areas or issues you are experiencing and what you would like to achieve from the session. During the actual session, you will rest comfortably on our back on a massage table with your shoes removed. Or if you are unable to lie down, Reiki can also be performed comfortably on a chair. Come dressed in loose, comfortable clothing — no articles of clothing need to be removed for the session.
There are two types of sessions that you may experience in a physical setting — hands-on or hands-off. During a hands-on session, the practitioner will apply a light touch. In a hands-off session, they will hold their hands slightly above your body. Make sure to tell your practitioner which type you prefer.
Another form of Reiki is distant healing. During a distant healing session, a client can be anywhere in the world and receive the healing from a practitioner who may be on the other side of the world. This type of session is just as effective as a hands-on/off session. As stated before, the Reiki energy is intelligent and knows exactly where to go — you don’t have to physically be in the same room as a Reiki Practitioner to receive a healing. By simply directing our thoughts and energy, Reiki energy can be sent.
The practitioner will move their hands throughout the body, starting either at the head or feet. You might feel a warm sensation or tingling, and perhaps nothing at all; however, that doesn’t mean the Reiki is not working! The session should be very relaxing, pleasant, and revitalizing.
The benefits of Reiki include: stress reduction, relaxation, inner peace and harmony, balance of mind and emotions, and emotional distress relief. On the physical level, Reiki can help relieve migraines, arthritis, and sciatica. It can help with symptoms of asthma, chronic fatigue, menopausal symptoms, and insomnia. Reiki can also help speed up recovery from surgery or long-term illnesses.
