What is Reiki?
Reiki is hands-on natural healing using the universal life force energy. The term comes from the Japanese words “rei,” meaning universal, and “ki,” which means vital life force energy that flows through all living things. Reiki, is a gentle spiritual energy and is not tied to any specific religion or nationality.
Reiki, is used all over the world in places including hospitals and hospices, was refounded by a Japanese man named Mikao Usui in the early 1900s. It aids in healing by helping people become energetically balanced physically, emotionally, mentally and spiritually.
How does Reiki work?
Reiki practitioner is the conduit between the patient and the source of the universal life force energy; the energy flows through the practitioner’s energy field and through the hands to the patient. The energy does not come from the practitioner; rather it comes through the practitioner from the universal source.
Reiki treatments typically last about 50 minutes. during the treatment the patient lies on a massage table, fully clothed. the reiki practitioner gently places her hands palms down on or just above the patient’s body in specific energy locations and uses a series of 12 to 15 different hand positions. the length of time that the practitioner leaves her hands in each position is determined by the flow of energy through her hands at each location. there is no pressure, massage or manipulation.
The patient experiences the energy as sensations such as heat, tingling or pulsing where the practitioner has placed her hands. Sometimes, the sensations are felt moving through the body; some people do not perceive any change at all. Most people feel very relaxed and peaceful, and many fall asleep during the treatment.
