Reiki healing is a natural therapy that gently balances life energies and brings health and well-being to the recipient. This simple, non-invasive healing system works to promote health and well being of the entire physical, emotional and psychic body. It is truly a system of attaining and promoting wholeness of mind, body, and spirit.
How Reiki Healing Energy Works
The body is more than just a collection of functioning parts. Since everything generates a frequency, the body and its organs have their own energy field which is continually changing. All conditions of disease are rooted in this energy system. If our “life force” is low or blocked, we are more likely to get sick. But if it is high and flowing freely, we can maintain our health and well being.
Reiki Healing Energy provides means to balance the human energy fields (Auras) and energy centers (Chakras) to create conditions needed for the body’s healing system to function.
The Reiki practitioner assists the client to heal themselves spiritually, mentally, emotionally and physically by a simple laying on of hands. By the use of ancient healing symbols the practitioner channels the Universal Life Force energy allowing it to flow where is needed to bring the energy centers into alignment.
The Reiki practitioner must be a clear vessel through which the healing energy flows. He/She plays an instrumental part in the healing process, but ultimately it is up to the healee to manifest harmony and balance in his/her own life.
This natural healing modality originates in Tibet. The name “Reiki” (rey-key) comes from the technique as re-discovered by Dr. Mikao Usui, a Japanese Buddhist in the early 20th century.
“Re” means “Universal” and it is a general term for spirit or unseen spiritual quality, which serves as channel for “Ki” or “Life Force Energy” (some call it God, Buddha, Chi, Qi, Prana, Love Energy, or similar). It relates to the superior, all-encompassing cosmic energy from which all other minor energies in the universe draw their power
What to expect from a Reiki Treatment
A reiki treatment is performed while you are fully clothed by a Reiki practitioner so wear clothing that you will be comfortable in. The session will last 30 or 60 minutes. At a minimum you should feel very relaxed during and after the treatment. When we are relaxed, stress-free, we are able to restore our natural ability to heal. A Reiki healing session can induce an extremely comfortable state of being that can bring alteration in the client’s consciousness. After the treatment you may feel more energized or very relaxed.
Long term practice of whole-body reiki will restore the general condition of the body. It will open the energy channels and this will allow the body to deal properly and naturally with stress and build-up toxins and cope with anxiety and depression.
When a person is in good health, regular therapy will increase the body’s built-in defenses. This will manifest itself as confidence and outward harmony in dealing with everyday events. The person will gain a positive outlook on life. Reiki will also provide additional energy required to recover from illness.
If used with other natural therapies (massage, meditation, crystals, aromatherapy, homeopathy, etc.) Reiki will reinforce their effect. It can be used also as complementary therapy, because Reiki is truly a complementary care. It complements and enhances the health care the patient receives in the hospital or from other health care providers.
Reiki healing complements Eastern and Western medicine and everybody can benefit from it. It is beneficial to the health of women (even pregnant), men, children and it is also excellent to be used on animals (dogs, cats, horses), plants, water, etc. Reiki healing energy is a tool for use at any moment, anytime, anywhere for on-the-spot stress release, pain relief and quick energy.
