What is Reiki?
The word reiki means ‘universal life energy’ in Japanese, where this therapy originated at the turn of the century. Reiki is based on the premise that illness is caused by a disruption in the body’s energy field or life force. By using specially designed symbols and channelling energy, it is believed that the body can be filled with positive energy causing the disease-making negative energy to disappear.
How does it work?
Reiki heals by charging negatively affected parts of the energy field with positive energy. Energy fields in the body each have different vibratory levels and the reiki practitioners uses their hands to affect and hopefully rebalance these vibrations in the negatively affected part of the body.
What does it involve?
Although the reiki practitioner may ask questions about the client’s health prior to treatment, it is important to note that no diagnosis, prognosis or advice will be offered. Remaining fully clothed, the client prepares for treatment by relaxing on a massage couch, or sitting if that is more comfortable.
The practitioner may then rest their hands lightly and gently on the body in a sequence of positions, each one being held for a couple of minutes.
Alternatively, they may work ‘absently’, or away from the body. Although personal experiences differ, some people report feeling an intense heat from the practitioner’s hands during the process. The client does not have to think about or do anything, as it is the practitioner’s aim to provide a gentle, warming, vital energy appropriate for the recipient.
What is it good for?
Reiki can be used to relieve the symptoms of chronic illnesses and it often produces long-term beneficial changes. In most cases the practitioner will suggest a course of four, six or twelve treatments for maximum benefit.
Reiki is effective in:
Accelerating the healing process of any illness (mind or body)
Reducing stress, anxiety, tension and depression
Encouraging positivity, self confidence and creativity
Lowering blood pressure
Strengthening the immune system
Increasing energy levels
Promoting deep, restful sleep
Supporting personal change
Encouraging spiritual growth
What are the benefits?
Aside from treating physical, mental and emotional problems, most clients report that a reiki treatment feels wonderful, and promotes a sense of relaxation and well being.
What are the side effects?
As a general rule, reiki cannot do any harm because it is a form of non-invasive energy healing and will adjust itself to create the most appropriate effect for each individual person. In fact Reiki actually complements and increases the effectiveness of most forms of medical treatment, as it is a safe, holistic, natural way of treating disease or illness of any kind.
