Reiki – FAQ
Reiki energy, ("universal life energy" or "spiritual energy") is channelled by the practitioner during a treatment. It enhances the body's natural healing ability and promotes wellbeing. Reiki treatment stands on its own as a healing practice and is also safely used to support orthodox and complementary medicine. Reiki doesn't interfere with or diminish the intended effects of other health or medical practices. Reiki treatments are increasingly accepted in health and community care facilities including hospitals, hospices and cancer support units. For example, at the SolarisCare Cancer Support Centre at Sir Charles Gairdner hospital in Perth, Reiki is the most accessed complementary health treatment for cancer and leukaemia patients. Many patients report significant improvements in their level of pain, fatigue, nausea and breathing.
An abundance of anecdotal evidence about the benefits of Reiki treatment has been a catalyst for credible research into the effects of Reiki. The National Institutes of Health USA have trials under way to investigate the effect of Reiki on stress, fibromyalgia, AIDS, prostate cancer, painful neuropathy and cardio-vascular risk factors. Pamela Miles, author of Reiki: A Comprehensive Guide and leading US exponent on the integration of Reiki into mainstream healthcare facilities, writes: "… studies that have been done so far have showed promising results for using Reiki to reduce stress, anxiety and pain. The data include objective measures (decreased stress hormones, improved immune indicators, decreased heart rate and improved blood pressure) as well as subjective improvements in anxiety and pain."
The following are commonly reported benefits of Reiki practice. Although at this time, the evidence for most of these benefits is anecdotal, there are research data showing Reiki treatment can be effective for relaxation, pain management, reduced anxiety, reduced depression, and enhanced well-being: Relaxation Pain management Reduced anxiety Reduced depression Improved sleep Improved digestion Enhanced well-being Stronger self-esteem Support for substance abuse recovery Accelerated surgical recovery Reduced side effects from radiation, chemotherapy and Rx meds Greater self awareness Greater ease and satisfaction in relationship Heightened intuition

To understand Intuitive Reiki we need to first define Intuition. Intuition is otherwise known as the ability to receive information directly from the Universe. How to increase your intuition with Reiki? The answer is very simple. By being better connected to the universe you will be able to get more intuitive messages. When you are connecting with Reiki, when Reiki is flowing through you, you are connected to the Universe because Reiki is the Universal Life Force Energy. Lisa is leading the way teaching Intuitive Reiki Practitioners.
The place to begin is by attending the Reiki I Class (Beginners) which is over a weekend - Saturday & Sunday. You are encouraged to practice Reiki on yourself, friends and family and after approximately 3 months you can attend the advanced level (Reiki II). I find that most of the students that did their first training together re-unite to complete Reiki II which is lovely. Reiki has a way of bringing people together and great friendships have formed by having learnt Reiki together. Once you have completed this second training then you are eligible to join the Reiki Associations and then you can get Insurance and are officially able to practice Reiki as a Reiki Practitioner. All of my training courses are fully certified, professional and my training is also recognised by the International Institute of Complementary Therapists. (IICT) I am also a Clinical Hypnotherapist and offer both Reiki & Hypnotherapy sessions as a part of my practice, which means you are learning Reiki by someone who is dedicated to this work. All the course information and testimonials can be found on my website as well as the dates for my next training course - which you can book into now as enrolments are open.
