Reiki Healing

The reiki-sanctuary is ideally located to offer Reiki Healing Treatments to people living in Birmingham, Coventry, Staffordshire, Warwickshire, Derbyshire and Leicestershire.

To benefit from a Reiki Healing Treatment: all you need is the desire to be healed.

Ki energy flows within the physical body through energetic pathways, much like blood flows through our veins. Ki also surrounds the physical body in an electromagnetic field (the aura). Ki nourishes the organs and cells of the body, supporting them in their vital functions. When the flow of ki is disrupted, it causes diminished function in the organs and cells. Ki is responsive to thoughts and feelings. It becomes disrupted when we accept, either consciously or unconsciously, negative thoughts or feelings about ourselves. Reiki heals by flowing through the aura and the energetic pathways in the physical body, clearing disruptions in the flow of ki. With ki flowing freely, the body’s own healing mechanisms are able to function efficiently.

The duration of each Reiki treatment varies, but generally speaking the initial treatment usually lasts about 90 minutes and subsequent treatments 40-60 minutes. Benefits are generally apparent after 1 to 3 treatments.

You have a vital role to play in your Reiki healing. Before we begin, you set the intention for the treatment. This may be: to relieve pain, to release bottled up emotions or simply to relax. You can set an intent to ease any condition: physical, emotional, mental or spiritual. Once you have set your intent, all you need do is close your eyes and be open to receive Reiki healing.

During a Reiki treatment you remain fully clothed, although I do ask you to remove shoes and wristwatch. I also ask that you switch your mobile phone off (which for some people, these days, is the equivalent of being naked!)

You are seated in a comfortable chair with a headrest, so you can properly relax. I will begin by placing my hands on your shoulders. Most people feel the Reiki energy as heat, almost immediately. I will then work my way from the top of your head, to your feet. My hands are held a few inches above your body until I get to your feet, where I will make physical contact.

There’s something special about Reiki healing aboard narrowboat Sanctuary. Maybe it’s that you’re so close to Mother Nature. Or the fact that water is flowing all around you. The feeling that you have somehow escaped the world for a moment, just heightens the sensation of being totally relaxed.

After your Reiki treatment, it is important you give yourself time to ‘come back’ from the deeply relaxed state you have just experienced. Reiki healing can promote emotional release and spiritual awareness. As a qualified counsellor with many years experience, I am happy to help you work through anything that has ‘come up’ during the treatment.

Having received Reiki healing, your body will begin a detox. It is there for beneficial to drink plenty of water and avoid alcohol and other intoxicants, for 3-4 days after your Reiki treatment. Reiki healing can also affect appetite and energy levels. Just listen to your body: eat as much or as little as your body wants and take extra rest or exercise.
