At Spa Space Chicago, we pride ourselves on being among the most innovative and progressive day spas in Chicago. We want to be known not just as the best spa in downtown Chicago (although we do love that and appreciate everyone who voted for us!) but also a wellness destination where you can find a way to incorporate healing self-care into your life.
Offering reiki, a Japanese relaxation technique that slows down the mind and raises the physical body’s frequency, is one of the innovative ways we do that.
What Is Reiki?
As the Cleveland Clinic Center for Integrative Medicine explains, “Reiki is hands-on natural healing using the universal life force energy. The term comes from the Japanese words ‘rei.’ meaning universal, and ‘ki,’ which means vital life force energy that flows through all living things. Reiki, an abundant, gentle spiritual energy is not tied to any specific religion or nationality.
At the University of Minnesota’s Earl E. Bakken Center for Spirituality & Healing, they try to answer the question How does reiki work? “At the simplest, most obvious level,” they say, “it appears that Reiki treatment helps lessen the impact of stress, releasing tension from the entire system. Not only does the person move toward his or her own unique balance in body, mind and spirit, but also, depending on the level of physical health when Reiki begins, the body’s own healing mechanisms often begin functioning more effectively.”
Acupuncture, shiatsu and qigong are also among the many complementary treatments that work by trying to restore balance to the body. “Reiki appears to be the subtlest of these therapies, balancing the recipient through subtle Reiki vibrations rather than through manipulation or even the gentlest force,” the experts at the Bakken Center for Spirituality & Healing say.
A Reiki session at Spa Space will not only relax you but also shift the way you approach your daily life, as well as better connect you to your desires and purpose. A 75-minute service you will not forget! Note: This specialized treatment has limited availability, so please call in advance to schedule.
