Reiki was developed in Japan by Dr Mikao Usui. The Usui System of Natural Healing is passed from Reiki Master/Teacher to student. Reiki Attunements, Reiju Empowerments and teaching can be given by Rhoda.
It is a complementary therapy which aims to work on re-balancing the recipient’s natural energy systems. It can be given to the whole body or specific areas. You choose whether Reiki is carried out with light touch or without touch. The therapist's hands can be placed on or near various body parts. Individuals may respond uniquely to Reiki, thereby feeling differing sensations - sometimes deep relaxation, or sensations of warmth and tingling, emotion and tension release - amongst other individual responses.
There is no need to undress for Reiki. Loose, comfortable clothing is recommended.
The term ‘Reiki’ is used to describe ‘Universal Life Energy’ which is worked with in therapeutic disciplines of natural energy balancing. This energy we work with in Reiki has been given different names, including ‘chi’ (the energy cultivated and balanced in Tai Chi, acupuncture, Shiatsu, and other Eastern therapies) and ‘prana’ (often referred to in India, for example in yoga and chakra therapy).
From these energy-based, healing traditions comes the following belief:
If the energy system of a person is restored to balance or natural harmony, with the body’s energy flowing correctly within energy channels (meridians) and energy centres (chakras), then well- being is restored to the individual.
Rhoda works to create a specific therapy session for her clients with the aim of detecting the individual requirements of each person’s energetic system. The session then focuses on its aim to restore energetic balance to a person, in turn restoring holistic well-being.
