The idea behind reiki is so simple it is almost difficult to grasp – an equipment-less treatment with the power to bring energetic balance? Clients relax on a table as they would for any massage. However, rather than manipulating tendon and muscle, your therapist taps in to your energetic field. Using their own intuition your therapist searches for subtle imbalances that need balancing – raising and lowering energy centers to bring clients into a more healthy state. The experience is as subtle as the energies it is attempting to shift, but the outcome can be as dramatic and effective as any other more ‘concrete’ treatment. Skeptic or no, energy medicine and treatments like reiki can often be effective despite your own mental commitment.
Reiki was originally a Japanese technique to promote healing, stress reduction and relaxation. Reiki is believed to have originated in Tibet over 2,500 years ago. Dr. Mikao Usui, from Japan, introduced reiki to Westerners in the late 1800s after he rediscovered this ancient healing technique himself.
Reiki is an energy healing technique often used to promote healing, stress reduction and relaxation. The word reiki can simply be translated as “life force energy”. Therefore a reiki practitioner or reiki master uses their hands either directly on or slightly above the body to channel life force energy to promote healing. There is no manipulation of the body (such as in massage) and a client typically lays down, fully clothed (except for shoes) to receive a reiki session. The practitioner or master channels reiki energy through their hands and into the client’s body. The practitioner’s hands typically feel very hot and soothing while reiki is being channeled but can feel cold, as well. Reiki is considered an intelligent energy and knows where it needs to go to help promote healing in the body, mind and spirit!
Everything is energy. Everything. When your energy vibrates at a higher frequency you attract things and people at that higher level. When your energy is vibrating at a lower frequency you attract things at a lower level. You know that old saying, “When it rains it pours!” It seems that more negative experiences occur when we are stressed out or in a bad mood. Your energy vibration changes to a lower level and suddenly more negativity follows. It’s the same with physical injuries or trauma in the body. Clients may come with old injuries that keep aggravating them and causing pain. Many times, after working on them the injury stops giving them trouble. Clients may also experience profound life changes with little conscious effort, which is one possible outcome when shifting your energy for the higher good.
Anyone and everyone can benefit from reiki. Reiki can help with stress, anxiety, depression, behavioral problems with children, pre- and post-surgery, feeling “stuck” in your life, concussions, migraines, broken bones, any trauma to the body, sexual abuse, menstrual issues, hospice, and even undiagnosed problems. The list is virtually endless. The human body is amazing and reiki is all about giving the body the support it needs to heal itself.
