Reiki is a healing technique orginated from a Japanese therapy that promotes stress reduction and relaxation. Its premis is to restore balance back to the body by working with a person’s energetic field. Reiki is administered by "laying on hands" and is based on the idea that an unseen "life force energy" flows through us and is what causes us to be alive. If one's "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. The word Reiki is made of two Japanese words - Rei which means "God's Wisdom or the Higher Power" and Ki which is "life force energy". So Reiki is actually "spiritually guided life force energy."
A treatment feels like a wonderful glowing radiance that flows through and around you. Reiki treats the whole person including body, emotions, mind and spirit creating many beneficial effects that include relaxation and feelings of peace, security and wellbeing.
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 malady and always creates a beneficial effect. It also works in conjunction with all other medical or therapeutic techniques to relieve side effects and promote recovery.
What is Reiki?
At the beginning of time, whether one believes in creation or evolution, there was a cosmic force that sparked our existence. Whether it was a Light, or a Bang, or cosmic collision of sorts, this beginning was ENERGY. This energy is infused in all things - in the earth we walk on, in plants, in rocks/crystals/gems, in the wind, in fire, in water, and within our bodies. Reiki is a Japanese term that refers to the “ki” or “life force energy” within us. Reiki therapy works with this life force energy to help bring your body back into alignment. Whatever rests in our energetic field essentially influences the way we feel physically and emotionally, and the way we process life. Reiki is, in essence, a relaxation therapy that uses light touch and a form of energetic massage to clean the energetic field and remove “murky energy” or blockages from the chakras. Reiki can also be shared to align the chakras, detach negative energetic influences impacting our state of being, and inspire the nervous system to come to a state of deep relaxation. The benefits of having Reiki therapy are vast and vary from person to person. Overall, it can aid in relieving stress, removing toxins, promotes better sleep, balances the mind-body-spirit relationship, reduces tension/anxiety, promotes mental clarity, helps with grief, and supports vitality. Often imbalances can be detected within the energetic field before they manifest in the body, and Reiki is an excellent gift to yourself to help support holistic well being.
