The Japanese Buddhist Mikao Usui developed reiki in the early 20th century. Reiki is a relaxation technique that promotes healing and relaxation. Reiki practitioners believe that the more energy is flowing through a person, the healthier they are. The energy flow supposedly channeled by reiki is said to stimulate the body’s natural healing processes.
Reiki treatment can be applied on the whole body and is based on the administration of “the laying of hand” and the “power of touch.” The technique was introduced to the West by Hawayo Takata, a Japanese American who was the first Reiki master outside Japan.
When you come to Mantra Wellness Center for a reiki session you will have a brief introductory conversation with the Mantra Wellness Centre Reiki master to communicate where you feel pain and softness in your body. After that, you will go to a quiet and relaxing room where you will lie down on a lounger fully clothed. The reiki practitioner will then use different hand positions over your body or sometimes with a light touch to facilitate the flow of energy.
Most people after reiki treatment report feeling a pleasant warm sensation from the laying of the hands on their body. The sensation of heat and soothing from the fingers is caused by flow of energy into the body. Clients who suffer from chronic disorders such as rheumatism or arthritis or those who suffer from stress and eating disorders can benefit greatly from traditional reiki sessions.
