When someone tells you they go to Reiki or practice Reiki, what are your immediate thoughts? A lot of people are still leery of the practice. Some even consider it witch craft. So, what exactly is Reiki?
“Reiki is a therapy often described as palm healing or hands-on-body healing in which a practitioner places hands lightly on or over a patient's body to facilitate the patient's process of healing.” Livescience.com
The power of touch is incredibly evident when we hug someone, hold hands, become intimate, kiss, get a massage, and so much more. The power of touch is incredibly real. So, it’s hard to dismiss the power of Reiki. Especially once you’ve tried it. And we all know from science that the human body holds all sorts of energy in and around it. Try this: take your palms and face them towards each other, a good distance apart. Slowly begin moving them together. Just doing this, you can feel the energy, almost pushing against each other like two magnets do on the same side. Reiki is taking the bad energy from you and replacing it with good, positive energy.
So, what does a Reiki session consist of? Well, that depends on where you go. At Pilates Plus Reiki is incredibly therapeutic. We start off by talking about what is going on in your life. We talk about things that are bothering you and places in your life that you need guidance. You can become as open as you’d like in your first session. Reiki practitioners are trained in touch therapy and life coaching. They are trained to listen, offer advice and help you make true changes.
You will then lay on a table (fully clothed) where you will have oils massaged onto your feet (who doesn’t love a foot rub?). This will begin the process of opening your chakras. Read more about those in following blogs. You will be brought into a meditative state and you can either choose to fall asleep or interact. It’s whatever you need and whatever you choose. You will feel incredibly relaxed and might even fall asleep. It’s ok, you’ll wake up with the work done and feel incredibly refreshed, ready to tackle any problem head on.
