An extra gentle approach, this Japanese technique helps to reduce stress and promote relaxation. Reiki is based on the idea that an unseen “life force energy” flows through each of us, causing us to be alive. When this energy is low, we feel it physically – through stress, headache, pain, illness. When this energy is high, we are more capable to handle anything we encounter in everyday life. The practitioner’s hands are placed on or near the client’s body in a series of hand positions, including around the head and shoulders, the stomach, and feet. More specific positions may be used, based on individual clients’ needs. Each position is held for up to ten minutes, depending on how much Reiki the client needs at each position. Full body, client remains fully clothed.
