What is Reiki?
Reiki is a spiritual healing practice originated in Japan. It is generally known as an ancient healing art rediscovered in the early 19th century by Dr. Mikao Usui. Reiki is the Japanese word for Universal Life Force Energy. Rei = Universal, Ki = Life Force Energy. We all have Universal Life Force Energy, for it is our essential composition as beings made of cells of densely vibrating energy.
The Reiki technique commonly practiced today is “hands on healing” or “palm healing,” which acts as an alternative form of the medicine transferring the universal energies in the body to heal.
Benefits of Reiki
Reiki is a powerful source of healing, as it benefits both the practitioner as well as the receiver. The energies are guided by universal positives, therefore there are no side effects or harm in practicing this form of healing art.
Reiki relieves one from mental stress, brings one to the state of equilibrium and self-healing.
How Does it Work?
In a traditional Reiki therapy session, the therapist uses meditation techniques to focus energy in the hands and fingers. The hands are placed upon various energy centers: chakras, meridians and pressure points as required. The recipient may experience localized heat and energy movement in the body. The treatment in non-invasive and the recipient remains fully clothed.
