Reiki (pronounced ray-key) is a natural, Japanese tradition of deep relaxation and stress relief. Reiki uses gentle touch to move energy in the body. Reiki is performed by a certified Reiki practitioner. The practitioner applies a light touch, which is deeply relaxing and creates a sense of well-being. It is usually experienced as a profound feeling of warmth and comfort leaving the recipient in a peaceful, deeply relaxed state. Reiki is NOT massage. The practitioner’s hands momentarily remain in a set position over the body's energy centers and joints. The recipient remains fully clothed. The treatment is safe and non-invasive. It is especially helpful in managing pain. Reiki does not replace traditional medicine, but adds a valuable piece to the care giving process.
Reiki is a way of increasing our supply of life force energy. When our life force decreases we are more susceptible to poor health and are unable to enjoy restful sleep. When our life force energy is strong, we are less likely to get sick and we can cope better with stress. Reiki energizes our body’s own healing power.
Stress causes our life force energy to diminish. The effects of unreleased stress range from minor aches to major health concerns. Reiki promotes psychological healing, including release of anger, fear, worry, sadness and other unhealthy feelings, instilling a sense of well being, confidence and tranquility.
How Does Reiki Work?
It influences every cell in our body. One of the main functions of Reiki is to promote a deep state of relaxation. The relaxation response releases endorphins in one’s brain and the endorphins relax the muscles.
Relaxed muscles create more space between cells providing increased circulation.Increased blood flow elevates oxygen levels throughout the body. Accelerated blood flow allows nutrients to be absorbed more efficiently. Enzymes build for proper digestion. Hormones regulate and strengthen the body's constitution. Toxins are released from the body. Healthy cells begin to regenerate. A sense of well-being is established which promotes wholeness. When the body has a stable physiology, the immune system is regulated. The resulting stability within the immune system affects the physical, emotional, mental and spiritual facets of the body's energy field supporting self-healing.
Distance Reiki Session Long Distance Sessions can be coordinated with Jennifer Ledbetter. Distance Reiki can be sent anywhere in the world. I ask clients to set up a time convenient for them to receive at which time I will direct Reiki to remove any energy blocks present in the client. At times, due to illness, stress or fatigue, there can be blocks in one's energy system that, if they are not addressed, can lead to physical and/or emotional illness. Reiki sessions release these blocks and allow one’s body to return to a healthy balance so that healing and relaxation can occur naturally. Make appointments: 901-691-1533
