If you’re looking for a relaxing way to restore your health, balance and energy, try reiki. Sydney is home to many masters of this therapy developed by Japanese Buddhist Mikao Usui in 1922.
Despite its spiritual underpinnings, Reiki is quite secular and suitable for everyone. It’s offered as a way to handle a whole range of diseases and is a wonderful way to treat tension and various emotional problems. By restoring balance, it helps strengthen your body so that it resists disease, as well as your mind so that you can better deal with stress.
Reiki (pronounced ray-key) can be roughly translated as ‘universal life energy’. Like other Eastern health systems, it maintains that energy flows through our bodies along pathways or meridians. Blockage of these pathways causes disease.
While acupuncture uses needles to loosen these blockages, reiki works by placing the hands on various parts of the body. In the reiki scheme of things, it’s not the practitioner who does the healing. She is just a conduit through which universal energy can flow into the body of the person being treated.
So what can you expect from a reiki session, Sydney style?
Sessions are very relaxing and last from 45-90 minutes depending on your wishes. You just need to lie down and let the master do her work. Unlike massage, there is no kneading or manipulation. You may feel a sense of warmth or tingling in certain areas but this is perfectly normal. Occasionally, you may feel a sense of malaise or mental distress. This is just the treatment doing its work. It’s just your body reacting as it rebalances and expels toxins. Some people report seeing curious colours and patterns but this is nothing to worry about. Following your session, you will feel a glowing sense of wellbeing.
One great thing about reiki is that you can simply book a single session whenever you wish. If you have any stubborn emotional issues, then you can schedule a series of sessions until the condition is relieved. Your practitioner will advise you.
