Reiki is an ancient form of healing that was introduced to the West by Dr Mikao Usui. I use this wonderful therapy throughout my hypnotherapy sessions by “streaming” energy to my clients. Sending them healing energy in a continuous stream from my hands. This “energy feed” then greatly helps them focus and concentrate while under hypnosis.
Many clients report feeling cocooned and insulated in a very supportive way.
The beauty of Reiki is that it is the RECIPIENT who determines the energy flow. This means that when a person is open to receive, an abundance of Reiki can be streamed to them. I also find Reiki helps them create a much better connection to their physical bodies – they become more grounded after a session.
Sometimes, I will give hands-on Reiki to an area of the body where a lot of tension is held; this helps them to focus more deeply into that area; it also opens the cellular memory of that area to release tension and absorb healing life force.
Some clients prefer a full session where they can lie comfortably, and drift off to sleep if that is what their body needs.
