Everything about us, and that surrounds us, is made of energy.
Reiki serves to clear energy blockages and realign the energy meridians within a human body to enhance body functions and enable the body to more easily heal itself. It is performed by laying on of hands and channeling energy into the human body by directing focused intention, i.e. outside life energy is used to facilitate proper energy flow in the “misaligned” body.
The body’s electro-magnetic energy can, in fact be measured by instruments such as an EEG (electro-encephalogram) or the newer, less known MEG (magneto-encephalogram) – so the existence of life energy or Rei-ki is measurable and scientifically proven. Recent particle accelerator experiments have also proven that the movement of electrons, neutrons and protons inside the atoms within each cell of the body can be influenced and changed by outside measures.
The Reiki practitioner is much like the magnet that is properly “aligned”, who can help an energetically weaker body to become more like her or himself and experience vibrational healing in terms of their smallest cell building blocks being jump-started again
Benefits of Reiki Therapy:
Although Reiki energy is spiritual in nature, Reiki is not a religion. Practitioners are not asked to change any religious or spiritual beliefs they may have. They are free to continue believing anything they choose and are encouraged to make their own decisions concerning the nature of their religious practices.
In a standard treatment Reiki energy flows from the practitioners hands into the client. The client is usually laying on a massage table but treatments can also be given while the client is seated or even standing. The client remains fully clothed. The practitioner places her/his hands on or near the client’s body in a series of hand positions. These include positions around the head and shoulders, the stomach, and feet. Other, more specific positions may be used based on the clients needs. Each position is held for three to ten minutes depending on how much Reiki the client needs at each position. The whole treatment usually lasts between 45 and 90 minutes.
What one experiences during a Reiki treatment varies somewhat from person to person. However, feelings of deep relaxation are usually felt by all. In addition, many feel a wonderful glowing radiance that flows through and surrounds them. As the Reiki energy encourages one to let go of all tension, anxiety, fear or other negative feelings a state of peace and well-being is experienced. Some drift off to sleep or report floating outside their bodies or have visions and other mystical experiences. At the end of the treatment, one feels refreshed with a more positive, balanced outlook.
Reiki has had a positive effect on all forms of illness and negative conditions. This includes minor things like head or stomach aches, bee stings, colds, flu, tension and anxiety as well as serious illness like heart disease, cancer, leukemia, etc. The side effects of regular medical treatments have also been reduced or eliminated. This includes the negative effects of chemotherapy, post operative pain and depression as well as improving the healing rate and reducing the time needed to stay in the hospital. Reiki always helps and in some cases people have experienced complete healings which have been confirmed by medical tests before and after the Reiki treatments. However, while some have experienced miracles, they cannot be guaranteed. Stress reduction with some improvement in ones physical and psychological condition are what most experience.
No. Reiki works in conjunction with regular medical or psychological treatment. If one has a medical or psychological condition, it is recommended that one see a licensed health care professional in addition to receiving Reiki treatments. Reiki energy works in harmony with all other forms of healing, including drugs, surgery, psychological care or any other method of alternative care and will improve the results.
