Reiki Healing at The Well House Rawdon - What is Reiki?

Hi everyone,

I’m Alice. I teach the Fundamentals of Yoga Course and the Slow Flow Yoga classes at The Well House Rawdon, and I now also offer Small Group Reiki Healing too - Wednesdays 2pm!

Reiki is a wonderful healing technique, and although it’s relatively new to modern Western society, it’s actually a really old Japanese healing modality that has been around since the 1800s, and was first introduced to the West in the 1930s.

As Reiki may be new to you I thought I’d write a few blog posts about Reiki so you an learn what Reiki is, and what you may experience during a Reiki healing session at The Well House Rawdon.

What is Reiki?

Reiki (ray-key) is an ancient Japanese healing technique that works with the energy that flows through all living things. This energy is a gentle, invisible force that surrounds us and sustains life. When our energy becomes blocked or imbalanced due to stress, illness or other factors, it can lead to physical or emotional discomfort.

As Reiki practitioners we are trained to channel this healing energy through our hands, either by lightly touching or holding them above a person's body. This process helps to clear blockages, restore balance, and promote relaxation and well-being on a physical, emotional and spiritual level.

Many people don't need to understand how Reiki works for it to be effective; simply being open to receiving the energy is enough. The experience of Reiki is often described as deeply calming and rejuvenating, like that of a gentle massage for the soul. It's a beautiful way to tap into your body's natural ability to heal itself and find inner peace.

What can I expect to feel during a Reiki session?

Clients often experience Reiki as a sense of deep relaxation. A feeling of warmth or coolness, or vibrational buzzing or tingling around the body can also be experienced. Sometimes an emotional release (laughter or tears) or coughing are experienced too – or perhaps nothing at all! Regardless of how you experience it, the Reiki healing is still happening, it just presents differently each time.

Come join us for a Small Group Reiki session

If you’re feeling curious about Reiki, and would like to experience its gentle yet powerful healing, I invite you to join us for one of my Small Group Reiki (Charity Sessions) at The Well House on Wednesdays 14:00-15:00, with all profits being donated to a Leeds-based mental health charity. 

With love & light,

Alice x

P.s. In my next blog I’ll talk about what you can expect during one of my Small Group Reiki healing sessions.
