Fact #1 Reiki improves wellness for millions of people all over the world.
Fact #2 Reiki can be administered with hands positioned on, or just off the body. Reiki can be used in conjunction with massage and that's where confusion comes in. The client may lay down or sit up to receive Reiki.
Fact #3 You don't have to believe in anything mystical or religious to receive and benefit from Reiki.
Myth #1 It's like a massage.
Noooooo. Reiki is not like a massage, Reiki clients keep their clothes on, and generally just take off their shoes.
Myth #2 Reiki is some kind of religion.
Nooooo. Reiki is non-denominational. Reiki is Universal Energy (this surrounds us always), some might call that God Energy, and that's ok too if it's important to them. It is a life force energy. Ki, means energy, like Chi and Prana.
Myth #3 You have to have 'healing hands' to learn Reiki
Noooooo. You don't. Reiki is an attunement. This means you are tuned in to use it, a little like tuning a radio station.
It is not a gift, until you have it, then it becomes a gift to use and help transform wellness.
Reiki is used globally by more than 4 million people, for wellness, for stress and pain release, for rehabilitation and to make life easier. It is a respectful, non denominational method of energy transference and has origins in the primal care we have always extended to each other: love, touch, and comfort.
I run Regular Classes in Auckland and also offer booster courses online.
