Reiki is a technique for stress reduction and relaxation that also promotes healing. It’s 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 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?
The word Reiki, pronouced ‘Ray-key’, 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.”
The practice of reiki involves channelling this energy in order to balance & heal ourselves and others. This is an ancient Buddhist healing method that was rediscovered by Dr.Usui in the mid-nineteenth century. Reiki is hands on healing which aims to remove any blockages in the energy system of the body.
While Reiki is spiritual in nature, it is not a religion. It has no dogma, and there is nothing you must believe in order to learn and use Reiki. In fact, Reiki is not dependent on belief at all and will work whether you believe in it or not. Because Reiki comes from God, many people find that using Reiki puts them more in touch with the experience of their religion rather than having only an intellectual concept of it.
While Reiki is not a religion, it is still important to live and act in a way that promotes harmony with others. Dr. Mikao Usui, the founder of the Reiki system of natural healing, recommended that one should practice certain simple ethical ideals to promote peace and harmony, which are nearly universal across all cultures.
Reiki Treatment Benefits
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.
It is deeply relaxing to both give and recieve a Reiki Treatment and as this energy is channelled the person giving receives the energy as well. Reiki is perfect for empowering and protecting massage therapists and anyone in the ‘helping’ professions.
It 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.
