What is reiki and energy healing?
Reiki and energy healing focus on our body’s energy fields to improve its flow of energy to reduce pain and other symptoms of illness.
There is a variety of reiki and energy healing methods, including reiki massage, which was developed in Japan in the 1800s to transfer energy from the masseuse into their patient.
Reiki is used by practitioners to induce deep relaxation. This can help people improve their overall well-being, relieve emotional stress and cope with difficult situations or stages in their life.
It is also used to unblock our chakras, which are what our bodies use as energy centres and transport routes to move our inner life force. ‘Chakra’ derives from the Sanskrit word for ‘wheel’ and was translated into Hindi as the ‘wheel of spinning energy’.
This wheel of energy is a kind of vortex or power supply of energy which comes from our bodies. Reiki is a technique to distribute that energy to help us heal both physically and emotionally.
Are you feeling unbalanced? Disjointed? Or simply not yourself?
Open For Life is here to help.
What do reiki healers do?
Using ‘hands off’ massage techniques to transmit the energy of life to provide gateways for unreleased physical and mental tension, our reiki practitioners restore your body to a state of balance.
These transmissions of energy can pass from one person to another through our hands with our reiki healers trained practitioners in this specific skill.
The main objective of all reiki healers is to work on the physical, emotional, mental and spiritual imbalances within your body, allow passageways by opening our chakras and improve your overall well-being.
How does reiki work?
Our life force uses chakras, meridians and nadis as pathways through our physical body.
Sometimes, these pathways can become blocked, leading to ill health.
It is then the job of a reiki healer to charge these parts of the body with positive energy to effectively unblock passageways by putting you in a deep state of relaxation to heal your physical, spiritual, emotional and mental components.
What is energy healing?
Used in conjunction with holistic healing, energy healing works with our physical, spiritual and emotional components to find blockages or disturbances in the flow of energy within our bodies. Energy healing is used to complement traditional and other forms of healing by specifically focusing on the aura of your body to create a physical pattern for your body to follow.
Is reiki dangerous?
Reiki’s results can be best seen in how you feel after a session.
As energy is difficult for science to measure, its effectiveness is instead measured in the patient’s recovery from their chakra blockages.
There are no dangers at all to reiki or energy healing if they’re used to complement traditional healing methods.
What problems can reiki solve?
What can reiki help with?
Reiki for kids
Children feel similar pressures, tensions and depletion that adults do. Blockages in your child’s chakra could be caused by negative or stressful situations in their lives and they may not understand their body has an energy field which can become blocked.
Reiki for kids is treated the same way it is for adults and has the same positive outcomes after one or multiple sessions. Your child’s health is very important in their developmental years and if worked on alongside traditional medicine, reiki can deliver lasting positive effects and outcomes.
Reiki for beginners
Self-healing through reiki or administering reiki to someone else involves specialised training for it to be truly effective. Understanding that reiki heals the sources, and not the symptoms, of our illnesses helps us better understand what the reiki process is.
Another step for beginners is to truly want to be healed. If someone is unwilling to get to the root of their problems and does not want to cooperate or have multiple sessions, they may not be able to experience the positive and intensive changes their life needs to take.
Reiki for fertility
Couples who want to become pregnant often use reiki to improve erectile dysfunction and improve difficulties with low sperm count.
Also used by hospitals and medical centres to improve fertility, reiki has proven beneficial as an extra push for improvement alongside traditional medical treatment.
Reiki for sleep
Reiki relaxes and quietens the mind to reduce the source of issues which may be keeping you awake.
The state of deep relaxation that reiki puts us in also relaxes the body by allowing a free flow of energy. This provides better conditions to not only sleep, but fall asleep, which is why reiki treatments have been used in many cases to overcome insomnia.
Reiki for pregnancy
Reiki treatments during pregnancy are used in many hospitals to reduce stress, anxiety and pain for both mother and child.
This ancient art of healing is also used to help morning sickness and to improve sleep quality in mothers.
Reiki for weight loss
Reiki improves balance and well-being, stress and sleep patterns, which are all proven causes and side effects of obesity.
Reiki’s ability to contribute to the alleviation of these problems through the correct flowing of energy, along with a healthy diet and exercise, can prevent further weight gain and lead to weight loss by living a more balanced and harmonious life.
What to expect in a reiki session
Common experiences during a reiki session include:
- The sensation of pins and needles
- Hot flushes.
These are felt by both reiki practitioner and patient during treatment.
The flow of energy can come both smoothly and irregularly during treatment, although none of the feelings experienced during treatment is harmful.
While there is no set period between reiki sessions, its regularity is recommended depending on the severity of the illness or affliction which has brought the patient to their practitioner.
Session frequency usually ranges from once a week to multiple times a week.

Our client testimonials
A complete mental transformation
At first I didn’t think reiki was for me. I had been exercising and eating healthy to lose weight and I could already see the benefits. But I started reiki because although I had everything in order on the outside, I felt something more was needed. I started seeing my reiki practitioner and felt the benefits almost instantly. My stress levels went down, and I could finally relax after each day, which helped my sleeping patterns and ability to wake up fresh each morning.
I felt as light as a feather.
Having seen the wonderful Eiran in the past for a few counselling sessions, she recommended I try a hands on energy treatment, also known as Reiki. Being a fairly open person, I thought iId give it a try. All I can now say is “WOW”. Eiran definitely knows her stuff, which made me feel comfortable as this was something I had never tried before. The treatment/session began by lying on a reiki table and taking 3 deep breathes to relax mind body and soul. By the end of the treatment I felt as light as a feather, completely relaxed and not a care in the world. Would with out a doubt recommend Eiran and Reiki!!!
I am so impressed and amazed.
I have known Eiran for over 2 years. She is an intuitive coach, therapist & healer. Eiran has worked holistically with myself to provide spiritual, emotional & physical healing from past traumas and issues. I am so impressed and amazed that Eiran has provided myself with so much clearing of my personal issues & back pain in a very short time.
