Reiki is a gentle but powerful hands-on healing technique that releases stress and blockages that are often the cause of physical problems. Reiki restores and balances our natural energy and simultaneously aligns the subtle energy centers in the body. Working in the physical, emotional, mental and spiritual levels of our being, this energy sets up the right conditions for the body to heal itself.
Here at Southwest, we have practiced Reiki for 22 years, and we consider it a vital part of our physical therapy palette. In order to promote a high degree of wellness, these stress-reducing techniques are included in the Physical Therapy treatments and also are offered separately as individual sessions.
For anyone in the healing professions, Reiki can enhance the relationship between the patient and the practitioner, and so aid in the recovery process at a more profound level through touch. The healing professional that uses Reiki will share a heightened sense of intuition, clarity, and compassion with their patient.
The greatest aspect of Reiki is that we can use it on ourselves at anytime. It will help to keep us energized, it will minimize stress and it will keep us more positively focused. More and more people are learning Reiki. It is a natural extension of our own abilities and can help us realize our full potential.
