FREQUENTLY  ASKED  QUESTIONS  ABOUT  REIKI

What is Reiki Energy Massage?

Where does it come from?

How does it work?

 

Reiki is a Japanese spiritual therapy to keep your mind and body healthy.

This Japanese word means Universal Life Force Energy… 

This a vital force which permeates all living things.

Reiki is also referred to as the Traditional Usui System of Natural Healing.

 

Reiki is a deeply relaxing hands-on treatment

which uses an energy technique that balances, harmonises and helps to restore your body's self healing.

 

Using the energy centers in the palms of our hands,

we place them gently and passively in different positions over or on your body, usually beginning at the head.

 

Psychologically, a one hour Reiki treatment is equivalent to 4 hours of deep sleep;

this experience alone makes Reiki a very effective stress reliever.

 

A Reiki Energy Massage is renowned for its effectiveness in treating both

long-term and acute illnesses.

A Reiki treatment will help to alleviate the roots of your ill-health

and stimulate a great feeling of general well-being.

 

Reiki sessions are also great as a general tonic or tune-up in times of "normal" health.

We believe that prevention is better than cure

and that regular Reiki treatments can act as a safety valve

to keep your body in better balance.

 

Treatments are given to fully clothed clients and by appointment only.

As a start, a minimum of 3 sessions is recommended

to benefit from the deeply relaxing cumulative advantages…


What Reiki IS NOT...

  • A religion, a cult, a sect or an organisation.
    Consequently, there is no need to change your present belief system.
  • A form of psychic healing, of mind control, wishful thinking or hypnosis.


Reiki is not a religion but we do follow these simple principles

as basic life-style guidelines

  

JUST FOR TODAY, I will not be angry.

 

JUST FOR TODAY, I will not worry.

 

JUST FOR TODAY, I will do my work honestly.

 

JUST FOR TODAY, I will be kind to my neighbour

and every living thing.

 

JUST FOR TODAY, I will give thanks

for my many blessings.


You can use these thoughts every morning and evening as spotlights to guide yourself.

JUST FOR TODAY...  because tomorrow is another day... and yesterday is the past.


I start my day, every day, by saying "Thank You" for all the blessings I received

rather than looking at what I do not have.

When I walk in my garden, I thank the plants for growing, the trees for giving us shade, 

the fruits and vegetables for providing our nourishment,

the pond for collecting the rain water for the dry season ...etc.


Reiki is a major tool in creating more love in our heart and lives.

Gratitude comes from a loving heart and vice-versa. It is an unending circle of love.

Reiki is a deeply relaxing vibrational energy technique that balances and restores your energy.

By deeply relaxing your body and mind, it will help to relieve your stress.

It works like a safety valve in your pressure cooker.

We believe that prevention is better than cure...

 

 

What do you feel during a Reiki treatment?

Most people feel nothing during the treatment because they have fallen asleep,

but they will wake-up, deeply relaxed and refreshed..

If not sleeping, you may feel a pleasant warmth on and inside the body area that is being treated.

This deeply warming relaxation will enable energy blockages within the body to be released and these can show in many ways: such as a desire to continually swallow, cough or sneeze,

a rumbling stomach or a gentle rush of energy down the legs.                              

These are great indications that the treatment is working and should not cause any concern.

 

 

Reiki for children?

Of course, we also give Reiki for children who respond particularly well

and fast to these deeply relaxing treatments.

because it is nicer to first "experience" by yourself, rather than create expectations...

Just come with an open mind and an open heart.

Volonteers giving Reiki at the Cancer Hostel in Chiangmai Nov. 2010

JUST FOR TODAY, I WILL ACCEPT MY BLESSINGS.
I will look at my life and see what I really have,
instead of looking at what I do not have but want to have.
What you think is what you get.
Most people do not realize that.
Learn to think in a constructive way and bring into your life the energy you really need.
If you think Light, all will be brighter.
If you think dark thoughts, all will become dark.
Allow your Higher Self to tell you what you need.
We are the Light of God on the planet.
Allow it to manifest through you, in truth, beauty,harmony, love and abundance.


Practice gratitude daily.

Life feels great when we remember our blessings,

and it feels so hard when we forget them.


When we think about our gifts and blessings and say thank you,

our hearts open and our minds are positive, inspired, and receptive.

It is easier to have a creative mind,

which makes it easier to manifest our goals and dreams.


Many people think about all that is not good enough in their lives

and then they spiral into negative circling thoughts,

which distracts them from their inner guidance. 


They become depleted, stressed, and anxious,

and feel as if they do not control their own lives.


Negative minds can affect our relationships too.

If we are in blame, criticism, judgment, or dislike of others,

we are not in our true heart and we can lose the opportunity

to love another person in the fullest way possible. 


We can miss the experience of ourselves as loving human beings.

Decide to focus only on what you love about the people in your relationships.


Reiki and gratitude are powerful tools that can instantly change our thoughts

the moment we focus on our blessings.

A grateful heart is one of the quickest ways to heal mind chatter,

negative thought, and unwanted perceptions.


When you realize the power of your thoughts,

and start to pay attention  to them,

you have taken the first step to create change for yourself.”
