Reiki For Fertility & Pregnancy
What is Reiki?
Reiki is a Japanese relaxation and stress reduction technique which rebalances the flow of energy to promote the body’s self-healing abilities.
Reiki works with energy, in a similar way to acupuncture. They both work with the same concept of universal life force energy, Qi in Chinese Medicine and Ki in Japan.
Acupuncture uses needles to correct the flow of energy within the meridians, while Reiki only uses hands to rebalance energy.
Reiki therapy can be practiced hands-on with light touch, or hands-off.
The reiki practitioner places their palms either on your body or a few inches away from your body and sends the reiki healing energy into the physical body and the aura.
Reiki removes energetic blockages and restores the free flow of Ki, which in turns stimulates the body’s natural healing abilities. Regular Reiki treatments keep your energy flowing freely and promote harmony within the body and wellbeing.
Reiki changes energy and since everything is energy including our body, thoughts, feelings and emotions, Reiki can help us heal on a physical, mental, emotional and spiritual level.
Reiki for Fertility
Reiki healing is very useful during pregnancy and while improving fertility.
In addition to easing stress and anxiety, Reiki removes the energetic blocks that may be preventing conception to happen.
Fertility Reiki works to move energy and to restore balance to the body, including to all of the reproductive glands and organs. Treatments reduce stress, remove emotional blockages and stimulate the reproductive organs & immune system.
Fertility journeys are emotional rollercoasters often experienced in loneliness and isolation and Reiki can be a very valuable support. Reiki can help destress the body and mind, while providing nurturing and connection at the same time. It can support you by bringing a more positive and hopeful outlook.
When the body, mind and spirit are healthy and in harmony, conception can happen.
Reiki during Pregnancy
Reiki is a very gentle energy modality and is 100% safe during pregnancy, from conception to birth. If you have experienced pregnancy loss, receiving reiki treatments in your first trimester can support you during those difficult few weeks with its relaxing and calming effects.
Easing Pregnancy Symptoms
Aches & Pain
High blood pressure
Regular reiki treatments keep the body free from stress and anxiety and promote deep relaxation.
The gentle healing energy from Reiki can also soothe and calm unborn babies. It is the perfect addition to pregnancy yoga and hypnobirthing.
Connecting with your Baby
Reiki is an energetic and holistic modality, it treats the whole person, including the baby.
Treatments often bring a deep sense of connection and positivity for both the mother and baby.
I recommend scheduling 4 reiki treatments in the weeks preceding your due date.
This will help you enter the birthing process rested, replenished, physically and emotionally balanced, which in turns provides a harmonious setting for labour to start on its own.
But no matter how far along you are in your pregnancy, it is never too late! Even 1 treatment can really help, especially if you are past your due date and facing induction.
What happens during a Reiki session?
The treatment starts with a short meet & greet where you can ask me any questions you have about the treatment.
There is no detailed consultation. As a your reiki therapist, I actually do not need to know why you are here. I just connect to the energy and send it to you, but your body is doing the healing.
You will be asked to lie fully clothed on the treatment bed and covered with a blanket.
If you are past 20 weeks pregnancy or uncomfortable lying on your back, you will be lying on your side with enough pillows to keep you comfortable.
Before I start the treatment, I will suggest that you set an intention, such as being open and receptive to reiki energy, or intention to receive the healing you came in for.
For the treatment, you have the option to choose between hands-on (avoiding private areas of course) or hands off. Most people choose hands-on as light touch is very comforting, but it is purely down to personal preference.
I will then proceed with the hand positions, starting at your head and ending at your feet.
If you have chosen to have a hands-on treatment, there will be times where you won’t feel anything. This is because I am working over an area that is not appropriate to touch like the Heart and Root Chakra.
You may feel extreme relaxation, drift off, or even fall asleep. I will gently touch you on the leg or shoulder and let you know when the treatment is finished.
What does Reiki feel like?
Most people fall into a state of deep relaxation, and feel a sense of peace and calm.
You may feel sensations such as warmth, coolness, tingling, rush or waves of energy. You may see colours or visuals in your mind’s eye. Or you may feel nothing at all. All this is completely normal. Sensations vary from person to person, but they also vary from session to session for the same person.
Reiki has its own intelligence, no matter what you physically feel or don’t feel during the session, whatever happens is right and perfect for you at that moment in time.
Simply relax and enjoy the experience, trusting that whatever you need right now is coming to you at the perfect time for you.
Would you prefer a distant treatment?
If you would like to book a Reiki treatment but are not able to attend the clinic, or if the available times do not suit you, we can absolutely schedule a distance treatment for you.
Energy is not bound by time or space, there is no difference in the effectiveness of the treatment whether you attend at the clinic or in the comfort of your own home.
Level II Reiki, which is required to practice professionally, is all about learning remote Reiki sessions. We have been attuned to symbols that enable us to connect to energy and send reiki through time and space.
