industry trainer is immense. We at TMP aim to 'bring

Reiki is a Japanese words meaning 'Universal Life Energy.'
Receiving Reiki is a very simple process, but can produce profound effects. Sessions begin by lying down on our treatment couch, fully clothed, closing your eyes, listening to soothing music to promote a state of relaxation. Next the applicator will rest their hands upon or above you depending on your preference in a non-invasive manner, through a series of positions from head to foot. Each position will be held for a few minutes, during this time energy will flow into you, balancing your energy system, releasing stress, soothing pain, and promoting your body’s natural ability to heal itself. As the energy flows, most people feel warmth, or heat, or a tingling sensation from the applicator's hands, this being a very relaxing experience, some people fall asleep. The effects can be quite energising but also detoxifying.
No matter what your particular complaint, the general effect of Reiki applications make people feel more laid back, calm, less stressed and more able to cope. It has the effect of boosting energy levels, raising spirits, and makes you feel more positive about things. Stressful situations can appear to wash over you. The most effective method of concisely describing Reiki and what it does for the recipient and applicator, who shares the experience, is a 'top up' of energy in mind, body and spirit.
