Healing/Reiki, which is usually performed a short distance away from the body, balances the subtle energies and can go where it is needed to bring about a sense of peace and well-being on many levels, not only the physical. It is a channelling of healing energies through the healer to the client, and some people describe the healer as being like a battery charger – the healer is not using his or her own energies, although it is important to have an open heart and a calm mind, but becomes a channel for the highest energies to flow through the hands to the client. The healer seeks to attune to the client’s higher self, with positive motivation for the best outcome for the client, and then simply allows the healing to flow to wherever it is needed. Healing tends to recharge depleted energy and enables the body’s own recuperative abilities to be strengthened, as well as working on stress levels to enable the client to deal with whatever problems they have in their life in the most effective way possible.
People may come for just one session of healing, or regular sessions – it is up to the individual to choose what they would like to do. Sometimes one session is enough for a significant change to occur, but sometimes the benefits of having healing may build up gradually over a period of time. Healing is suitable for anyone, old or young, also animals, people with terminal illness as well.
