Reiki is a natural universal healing energy used holistically to restore balance in the mind, body and soul. It is a Japanese technique used to reduce stress and aid relaxation and healing by laying the hands on specific points on the body. The name Reiki is broken down into two parts, Rei – which means higher power or God’s wisdom and Ki which means life force energy. Life force energy occurs naturally in all living things, but when it is low we don’t feel as healthy and balanced as we should. Reiki boosts the energy in the body, removes blockages, calms the body and mind, and gives a deep sense of well-being. There are many benefits to having Reiki treatments such as a reduction in stress & anxiety, insomnia, pain, it stimulates the immune system and balances emotions and enhances the body’s natural healing processes.
Crystals have been used for centuries as tools for healing and increasing levels of awareness with each stone being specially selected for specific frequencies and properties. The earliest civilisations used crystals as part of their healing therapies, in Egypt they adorned their jewellery with crystals, in Greece they studied the properties of crystals (the word crystal comes from the Greek word meaning ice), and in Ancient China Jade was used to address imbalances in the kidneys.
In a Crystal Reiki session, specific crystals are selected and placed on and around the body and Reiki energy is channelled through the crystals into the body. Just as sunlight shining through a crystal prism creates facets of light, Reiki energy passing through the crystals will create a specific energetic resonance within the body which will be used to address specific imbalances creating a sense of balance and calm.
The presence of Reiki energy amplifies the energy of the crystals and helps the bodymind focus on specific areas of the body, conditions or levels of awareness that are ready to heal.
