What is Reiki?
Reiki is the science and art of activating, directing and applying natural, universal life energy to promote energy balancing, healing wholeness, to prevent disorders and to maintain a state of positive wellness no matter what your age. It is administered by a practitioner and is based on the idea that an unseen “life force energy” flows through us and is what causes us to be alive. If ones “life force energy” is low, then we are more likely to get sick or feel stress; and if it is high, we are more capable of being happy and healthy. Reiki is an ancient Japanese method of healing and relaxing the mind, body and spirit reintroduced in the 1800’s by Mikao Usui. Quite simply, it is energy channeled through the hands of a trained practitioner. The word Reiki is broken down into two words “Rei” meaning universal spirit or life force and “Ki” meaning vital energy. Hence Reiki is universal life force energy.
Reiki balances and works on four levels of existence:
- Physical – the body and manifested pain
- Emotional – what you are feeling
- Mental – what you are allowing yourself to think
- Spiritual – your capacity to love yourself and others
Reiki is a simple, natural and safe method of spiritual healing and self-improvement that everyone can use. It has been effective in helping virtually every known illness and always creates a beneficial effect. It also works in conjunction with all other medical techniques to relieve side effects and promote recovery.
What can I expect from a session?
A session is 45 minutes long. The client remains fully clothed and relaxes on a massage table. The lights are dimmed and relaxing music is played. The practitioner hovers his or her hands over each area of the 7 chakras. The client lays in a very relaxed fashion while the practitioner provides the treatment. It is not uncommon for the client to dose for periods of time.
What Reiki is NOT:
Reiki is not a religion or a cult. Reiki is not a dogma or specific doctrine of beliefs. Reiki is not psychic healing. Reiki is not a massage technique. Reiki is not a form of mind control. Reiki is not imagination or wishful thinking.
