What is Reiki Healing?
Reiki is a Japanese technique for stress reduction and relaxation that also promotes healing, was created by Dr Mikao Usui in the mid-1800's. The Reiki energy is the fundamental Life Force of the Universe, a conscious and intelligent energy that flows through and nourishes all life.
This energy has been called by many different names, such as prana, mana and chi. An "invisible" energy field composed of this energy surrounds every human being.
The Usui Method of Natural Healing is a system of receiving and passing on the Reiki energy. This is done primarily through laying on of hands, resting without pressure on or above the body.
What are the benefits?
Reiki is energetic nourishment promoting relaxation, detoxification and a good overall balance within body, mind and soul.
Beneficial effects include relaxation and feelings of peace, security and wellbeing. Reiki can improve and complement the results of traditional medical treatments, acting to reduce negative side effects, shorten healing time, reduce or eliminate pain, reduce stress and anxiety and help create optimism.
Other benefits are at a soul level, like finding purpose in one's life, mental clarity, promoting creativity, helping you take right decisions in life, increasing your intuition and boosting your own body's ability to heal.
How does Reiki work?
We are alive because life force is flowing through us. Life force flows within the physical body through pathways called chakras, meridians and nadis. It also flows around us in a field of energy called the aura. Life force nourishes the organs and cells of the body, supporting them in their vital functions. When this flow of life force is disrupted, it causes diminished function in one or more of the organs and tissues of the physical body.
The life force is responsive to thoughts and feelings. It becomes disrupted when we accept, either consciously or unconsciously, negative thoughts or feelings about ourselves. These negative thoughts and feelings attach themselves to the energy field and cause a disruption in the flow of life force. This diminishes the vital function of the organs and cells of the physical body.
When there is an energetic blockage in our energetic body, it somatises in our physical body as a disease/pain/discomfort, creating illness without an organic cause.
Reiki heals by flowing through the affected parts of the energy field and charging them with positive energy. It raises the vibratory level of the energy field in and around the physical body where the negative thoughts and feelings are attached. This causes the negative energy to break apart and fall away. In so doing, Reiki clears, straightens and heals the energy pathways, thus allowing the life force to flow in a healthy and natural way.
How is a Reiki Treatment given?
In a standard treatment, Reiki energy flows from the practitioner's hands into the client. The client is usually laying on a massage table, but treatments can also be given while the client is seated or even standing. The client remains fully clothed. The practitioner places her/his hands on or near the client's body in a series of hand positions. These include positions around the head and shoulders, the stomach, and feet.
Other, more specific positions may be used based on the client's needs. Each position is held for three to ten minutes depending on how much Reiki the client needs at each position.
What is Distant Reiki Healing?
Distance Reiki is a technique within the Japanese system of Reiki Healing, is as powerful as a hands-on Reiki Healing treatment. Distant Reiki has no limits of time or space, you can send Reiki to a person, an animal, a place, a past event when a trauma was caused, to the present, to a future event or situation. Distant Reiki can be used to connect with someone who is too far to receive a traditional hands-on treatment and is in need of healing, recovery or to help them through a tough period or illness. Also is useful for those who want to benefit from the many benefits of Reiki Healing, but do not have enough time to travel to receive a treatment.
A Reiki practitioner can send Reiki to anyone in any part of the world at any time with no boundaries. It is done using a Distant Reiki symbol and connecting to the person's energy field, working on the subtle bodies as if the practitioner was with the client. It is a very powerful treatment that leaves you relaxed and balanced from the comfort of your home.
