Reiki healing is a hands-on energy healing art. It was originated in Japan in the early 20th century by Mikao Usui, who had a life-changing experience of light and energy that he recognized as Reiki–sacred life force–and that awakened his innate healing abilities. He developed a system of practices that enabled others to become effective healers.
Reiki pronounced ‘Ray Key’, is a Japanese form of stress reduction and relaxation that also promotes healing. ‘Rei’ means universal spiritual consciousness or higher knowledge. ‘Ki’ means life force energy – the energy that animates every living thing. Reiki can therefore be defined as universal life force energy or ‘spiritually guided’ life force energy.
In a Reiki healing session, the practitioner, trained to access and serve as a channel for the life force (ki or chi), places her hands on or just above the client’s body in order to activate healing energy within receptive points on the body. The practitioner’s hands move progressively with a passive touch through positions on the body.. As a harmonic flow of energy is strengthened, within the client and practitioner, healing occurs through the return of physical, mental, and spiritual balance.
Reiki is very safe and gentle and there are no contraindications for using Reiki.
Reiki improves the results of all other types of healing or medical treatments. It is a wonderful complementary therapy in any healing or wellness program.
In cases of chronic or more serious ailments, several sessions are necessary initially and then additional sessions are recommended periodically as the client feels necessary.
