Reiki as mainstream natural medicine 

Stressed out? In a perfect world, we’d sail through life completely devoid of stress and worry. It’s a nice scenario, but for most of us this will never be the case. We all have our ways to unwind — a bubble bath, a mind-numbing flick or an after-work glass of wine — but sometimes even our favourites can leave us feeling still wired.

If you’re looking for a new way to chill out, try a different route in the form of Reiki.

What is Reiki?

Reiki, for those unfamiliar with the term, is a technique for stress reduction and relaxation which hails from Japan.

Made up of two words — rei, “higher power”, and ki, “life-force energy” — it can be translated to mean “spiritually-guided life-force energy”.

Wherever its roots lie, Reiki is a complete natural practise that promotes peace, harmony and a deep sense of wellbeing — and it’s not at all airy-fairy.

How Reiki works for you

According to the principles of Reiki, there is an invisible force flowing around all of us … this force is believed to keep us alive, nourishing the organs and cells, supporting them in the vital functions.

Also responsive to thoughts and feelings, the flow becomes disrupted when we accept, either consciously or unconsciously, negatives in our lives.

Reiki Master Teacher Yolanda of Reiki Health has plenty of clients who rely on her Reiki sessions and classes to help counteract the lows of long working hours and the strains of everyday life. Whether you believe in Reiki or not, it will work regardless.
