Reiki Level 1 Training January 2019
Reiki (pronounced "ray-key") in Japanese means "Universal Life Force Energy," which is described as the energy flowing through all living things.
Reiki is a relaxation technique that supports the body's natural ability to move toward balance and to experience a sense of well-being. It is a simple, gentle, and safe "hands-on" technique that promotes stress reduction for those who receive it.
The person receiving Reiki is fully clothed during a Reiki session. The practitioner will discuss hand placement prior to the session, so you will know what to expect. He/She/they can also help answer questions that you might have about the session.
During a Reiki session, the practitioner will place their hands lightly on or above different areas of your body. Most often, the practitioner's hands will rest on or above an area for 3 to 5 minutes before moving on to the next area. There is not necessarily a specific order to where the practitioner's hands are placed. Reiki sessions can last 15-20 minutes, or closer to an hour depending on the setting and practitioner.
