reiki at your workplace

Reiki, a Japanese relaxation technique, has steadily gone mainstream over the past decade. People like Dr. Andrew Weill, Ellen DeGeneres, Halle Berry, Sandra Bullock and Deepak Chopra have all promoted the positive effects of Reiki. Many people who practice yoga or receive regular massages, have often heard about Reiki. UK hospitals like St George’s Hospital in Tooting, South West London, use Reiki in their wards to help patients relieve stress, reduce pain and decrease discomfort.

You can now add Reiki to your company’s wellness program. Or offer it as a treat during your offsite team away days or at corporate events like sales conferences, during exhibitions, etc.

why reiki in the workplace?

In today’s always on world we are constantly trying to find a little peace and quiet. To just slow down and breathe a little bit. To take a step back from the challenges of office life. To have a moment of clarity so that we can make the right decision. To have the energy when we go back home at night to enjoy the activities that have nothing to do with work. These things can seem impossible at times.

what is reiki in the workplace?

Reiki in the workplace has been proven by Reiki practitioners across the world. Transmitted through hands held either lightly on the body or near it without touching. It is a gentle technique and is simple to administer.

What is needed: Two chairs, 20 minutes, private space if possible, one fully clothed employee minus the shoes.

what clients experience

Everyone experiences Reiki differently, but most people say they feel more relaxed and calmer after a session. Many of my clients say that they feel energized and motivated for the rest of the day, well into the evening. It relieves stress and clears the chatter in their mind which allows them to focus and listen to their inner guidance. Some report an increased clarity in their thinking, which assists in decision-making.

how and when to introduce reiki to your company

Large and small companies can incorporate Reiki into the workplace.

You can offer it as an ongoing weekly, bi-monthly or monthly service.

Anytime is perfect.  First thing in the morning. During UK elevenses or Swedish Fika time. Before a big presentation. During the afternoon chocolate slump. Anytime an energy boost is needed.

You can also offer it as a one-off event like a wellness day, as part of a team building session at an offsite day, or at a corporate event like a sales conference of exhibition.

times

Reiki treatments in the office can be arranged for half day or full day. I can also attend your offsite and corporate events.

reiki for animals

Reiki is just as beneficial for animals as humans. I find it an amazing way to connect with the animals around me. They have taught me so much about forgiveness, compassion and courage.

I qualified as a Reiki Animal Practitioner and attended a workshop on animal communication with Amelia Kinkade. While living in Chicago I volunteered at an animal shelter cleaning dog cages, walking them and offering them Reiki.

A session can be given in person or at a distance and lasts the same length as a human session.

lineage

Reiki is transmitted from teacher to student through attunements. You can call it an energy transfer that includes symbols and mantras. Every Reiki practitioner should be able to track their lineage back to Dr Usui. The lineage of your Reiki practitioner is an important factor, especially when you want to learn how to give Reiki.

Class Structure

Usui Reiki first degree class and attunement

Reiki is a Japanese technique that reduces stress, helps the body to relax and promotes healing. It is works through the palms of the therapist’s hands and is based on the idea that an unseen life force energy flows through us and it is this energy that keeps us alive. If our life force energy is low, then we are more likely to get sick or feel stress, and if it is high, we are more able to be happy and healthy. Reiki works on the whole person including body, emotions, mind and spirit creating many beneficial effects that include relaxation and feelings of peace, security and wellbeing.
