What is Reiki?
Reiki is a spiritual healing art with its roots in Japanese origin. The word Reiki comes from the Japanese word (Rei) which means “Universal Life” and (Ki) which means “Energy”. Reiki is not affiliated with any particular religion or religious practice. It is not massage nor is it based on belief or suggestion. Reiki is the life energy that flows through all living things.
Reiki Practitioners understand that everyone has the ability to connect with their own healing energy and use it to strengthen energy in themselves and help others. It is believed that a person’s “ki” or energy should be strong and free flowing. When this is true a person’s body and mind is in a positive state of health. When the energy becomes weak or blocked it could lead to symptoms of physical or emotional imbalance.
How Does Reiki Heal?
When our chakras are unbalanced we begin to feel run down, tired, irritable and often experience pain and other health problems. Reiki is a wonderful healing tool and a great complement to conventional medicine, Chinese Medicine, homeopathy and any other form of healing.
Reiki Energy heals by flowing from the practitioners hands, through the affected parts of the individual or animals energy field, channelling it with positive energy and putting your body into a relaxed state. The healing energy raises the vibratory level of the energy field in and around the body where the negative thoughts and feelings are attached. This causes the negative energy to unblock and disperse. The Reiki healing energy clears and strengthens the energy pathways and chakras therefore allowing the inner life force to flow in a healthy and natural way. Reiki treatments help ease tension, stress, and helps support the body to facilitate an environment for healing on all levels – physical, mental, and emotional.
In simpler terms a Reiki treatment involves lying on a massage table, fully clothed, listening to music, where at some point you may very well fall asleep as the healing energy is being channelled to you. A Reiki treatment is very relaxing and is often utilized for one’s personal wellness, and helps to flush out any toxins and find peace, balance and harmony.
