What is Reiki?
Reiki (pronounced Ray-Key) is a Japanese technique used by a trained practitioner to provide their client with channeled life force energy. While receiving this stream of healing energy that is delivered to reestablish harmony to an out-of-balance state, the recipient often feels incredibly relaxed and imbued with a renewed sense of well-being.
Although Reiki is believed to have been discovered in Tibet thousands of years ago, Dr. Mikao Usui, a Japanese Christian educator in Kyoto, Japan is considered to be Father of Reiki. After more than twenty years of studying the spiritual healing principles of the body, Dr. Usui, developed a system to teach the healing practice of reiki. In the mid 1970’s, Reiki principles were introduced to the west and have since become a widely used and accepted practice of alternative healing.
The purpose of Reiki is to treat your whole mind, body, and spirit by providing balance to the life giving energy that every person possesses. Although explained by different names, eastern philosophy teaches that all humans are born with a ‘vital life force energy’ that flows through them. When this energy becomes stagnant or blocked, the person feels unwell. The purpose of a Reiki practitioner is to provide the patient with an infusion of additional energy to help them to remove blocks and restore their energy flow to an optimal level. When this happens, all of their systems are working properly and in harmony, providing a state of homeostasis. It is in this optimal condition that the mind, body, and spirit are able to heal themselves.
Many people report feeling tremendous relaxation, stress reduction, and /or pain relief during a reiki session. Reiki has assisted in providing relief for many people from symptoms of numerous conditions such as –
- Sinus conditions
- Chronic Fatigue
- And many more!
Reiki has even been used by nurses to assist in speeding up the healing process of patients recovering from surgery or to help chemotherapy patients with reducing side effects of treatment.
