A wonderfully relaxing, non-intrusive treatment which can be performed hands-off or with light touch, suitable for all levels of health and fitness, including pregnancy and for children (with parent / guardian present).
“Reiki” (ray-key) is Japanese for ‘universal life energy, it is a technique for stress reduction and relaxation that also promotes healing.The word Reiki is made of two Japanese words - Rei which means "spirit wisdom or Higher Power" and Ki which is "life force energy". So Reiki is actually "spiritually guided life force energy."
The basis is that there is a life force energy that flows through everything and is what causes us to be alive. If one's "life force energy" is weak or blocked, then we are more likely to get sick or feel stress, and if it is strong and flowing then we are more likely to feel balanced and happy / healthy.
What happens during a treatment?
The client remains dressed and is seated or lies comfortably while the practitioner channels this energy which involves holding the hands close to or gently on the client in non-intrusive areas such as the feet or top of the head.
This tradition was founded by Mikao Usui in the early 20th century and evolved as a result of research, experience and dedication.
At Aromarelax Reiki is combined with the use of chakra crystals.
