Reiki is a simple, safe, gentle, hands-on energy that when used as a healing technique can help to reduce stress, support relaxation and encourage healing. It uses spiritual energy, rather than, for example, massage or manipulation, to bring about a sense of balance and harmony.
It is believed that Reiki may help during all stages of pregnancy from conception to child birth. During pregnancy, Reiki provides emotional and physical support for both the mother and the child and is entirely safe.
Common discomforts associated with pregnancy may be minimised or alleviated by Reiki including backaches, headaches and nausea. When given, Reiki goes to wherever it may be needed, whether at a physical, emotional or spiritual level. In this way, Reiki may also help to raise the personal and spiritual awareness of the receiver.
During the Reiki session you will be asked to lie down on a couch and will remain fully clothed. Anyone, however, can benefit from Reiki so if a person is unable to get up on the couch, Reiki can also be given while sitting.
