What is Reiki?

Reiki (pronounced Ray Key) is a Japanese word consisting of 2 characters "Rei" and "Ki".  Rei means spiritual or sacred and Ki means energy.

Reiki is a specific healing support system, divided into 3 levels, which have been passed along from Reiki Master to student for the past hundred years since its rediscovery by Dr. Mikao Usui. Reiki heals gently from within and restores balance to mind, body and spirit. It can help you shed limiting beliefs and old emotional attachments which hold you back. It is deeply relaxing and is wonderful as a stress management tool. 

Reiki is not attached to any religion or specific belief system.  Anyone can receive a Reiki treatment and anyone can learn to give Reiki under instruction from a Reiki Master.  The only pre-requisite for having a Reiki treatment is the desire to be healed and to allow the energy to do its work.

The 5 Reiki Principles

Just for today I will give thanks for my many blessings.
Just for today I will not anger.
Just for today I will not worry.
Just for today I will be true to myself (do my work honestly).
Just for today I will be compassionate to myself and others.

Note the importance of the words "Just for today".  If you try and live by these principles daily you will make a huge difference to your well-being.

You can read more about using the principles and living the Reiki way by reading Debi's book - The Reiki Solution, available on Amazon - click here to check it out!

hat does a session entail?

During a Reiki healing session Debi channels universal healing energy through her hands into your body through your body's energy centres, the "Chakras".  You lie down during the treatment which lasts around 45 minutes.  You remain fully clothed during the process and Debi may only touch the top of your head and the soles of your feet.  At all other times her hands will hover about 3-5cm above your physical body.  If you prefer Debi not to touch you at all this is absolutely fine.  Reiki energy can pass through clothing, blankets and even plaster casts.  If you prefer to sit rather than lie then you may do so. The main thing is that you feel comfortable.

Your first session will take a little longer than the subsequent ones as you will go through a short consultation with Debi in order to give your consent to treatment.  Debi may also perform a body scan to ascertain areas in your energy field that need attention.  This is nothing to worry about!  She simply places her hands above your body and moves them from your head to your feet "scanning" your energy field for changes.

During the treatment Debi uses a series of hand positions to move energy through your chakras.  If you have a specific area of pain or discomfort please tell Debi so energy can be concentrated in this area. 

What will I feel during a session?

Each person is different.  Some people feel very little and others simply feel relaxed.  Some people feel heat radiating from Debi’s hands and others feel a tingling sensation. Most people do feel very relaxed during and after a treatment and some experience a "floating" sensation during the treatment.  It is advisable not to drive or operate machinery immediately after a Reiki session.  Debi often recommends that clients take up to half an hour to ground themselves after a treatment. 
Reiki energy will go to where it is needed most so you may be aware of Debi in one area but feel the energy moving elsewhere in your body. Some people feel weighted to the table, some fall asleep and others see colours and images. Each person is different and each session is unique.

How many sessions will I need?

Again this depends on your personal circumstances.  For transformational healing then it is advisable to attend regularly. Experience has shown that the healing effects of Reiki deepen over time. It is like peeling the layers of an onion – the more Reiki you have, the deeper the healing. Debi recommends that you try at least 3 to begin with and then see how you feel.
