What is Reiki Healing?
Reiki is a form of energy healing that works in tandem with other modalities of healing.
The word Reiki is made up of two different Japanese words: “rei” = “universal” and “ki” =”energy” or “life force”. Reiki represents the “life force energy”. The belief is that there is an unseen energy that flows through all living things. This energy is believed to be around us at all times and is believed to be what creates and sustains life.
Reiki helps to balance the energy systems of the body, which often leads to improvements in health, better stress management, and an overall improved sense of well-being.
The belief is that if someone’s life force energy is low or blocked, they are more likely to become ill or encounter imbalances.
If someone’s life force energy is high and flowing smoothly through the body and its chakras, then the person is more likely to be resilient to disease and be happier, healthier, and more in balance.
The goal of balancing the person’s energy is very similar to that of acupuncture or acupressure. The main difference is that, with Reiki, the Practitioner does not necessarily need to touch the body — Reiki can be done “hands-on” or “hands-off”. It can be done in person or via a distance healing session.
What Can I Expect During Reiki Therapy?
At in-person Reiki sessions, you will lay atop a traditional massage table and in some cases a chair.
Lights in the space will be dimmed, soft music will be playing, and incense will be burning. Reiki makes use of very light touch and often no touching at all.
The Reiki practitioner serves as a channel for the universal energy which flows through each person— this energy outpours from the practitioner’s hands into the points on the recipient’s body, mind, or spirit.
In a session, the practitioner places their hands on or around the client’s body in several different areas. During this, the client may feel different sensations like warmth, tingling or vibration. Usually the client just feels a sense of peace and relaxation, but sometimes an over- all sense of calmness will occur. Sessions can last anywhere from 20 minutes to over an hour.
Reiki can also be practiced from a distance.
