After reading an article about the benefits of Reiki, I naturally became curious as to whether it would help relieve my symptoms of Multiple Sclerosis (MS). And to some degree, there is always that “could it cure” goes through your mind. (We live in hope).

So I booked a session with a local Practitioner Daniel Rollings. Although the article I read did “take you through” a session, I didn’t really know what to expect and it did sound a little “woo woo,” but I was put at ease and very quickly became comfortable in the “treatment room.”

I don’t tend to relax very easily as my curiosity keeps me alert and I’m always learning/analysing/processing. However, my session did help ease tension and reduced the stress going on in my body. It must have done because I nodded off!

I was able to chat briefly with Daniel about the benefits of Reiki; both short-term and long-term and as the article suggested, Reiki helps support the body in healing on many levels – physical, mental, and emotional.

So what is Reiki?

Reiki is a spiritual healing art with its roots in Japanese origin. The word Reiki comes from the Japanese word (Rei) which means “Universal Life” and (Ki) which means “Energy”.

Reiki is not affiliated to any religion. It is not massage nor is it based on belief or suggestion but it is a form of energy work using life-force energy.

Reiki Practitioners believe that everyone has the ability to connect with their own healing energy and use it to strengthen their own energy and to also help others.

When a person’s energy (Ki) is strong, their body and mind is in a positive state of health. When the energy becomes weak or blocked, it could lead to symptoms of physical or emotional imbalance.
