What is Reiki?
Reiki is the Japanese word for Universal Life Force Energy and is an energetic healing method.
Universal life force within the Human body is vibrational energy. It is commonly understood that during stress and illness, energy that usually flows through the body can become depleted, blocked, and unbalanced. Reiki helps raise, replenish and rebalance that energy. Reiki promotes relaxation, a sense of peace, security and well-being that promotes self healing.
Reiki was re-discovered by Dr. Mikao Usui in the early 1900's.
Reiki is administered by "laying on of hands" by a Practitioner who has been attuned to the energy through the "attunement/placement process" of working with a Reiki Master. Reiki Energy is a spiritually guided intelligent energy that can restore and replenish everything. Anyone can learn Reiki and it is away to help people and the planet without depleting your own energy system.
Reiki can never cause harm and is a pure form of healing that is not dependent on individual talent or acquired ability. The feeling of being connected to God's healing love and protection is apparent when giving and or receiving the Reiki Energy.
Reiki in Medicine
As the medical profession is looking into new methods of wellness and healing, increased interest in “complementary” methods has been expanding in recent years. A component of the National Institute of Health, The National Center for Complementary and Alternative Medicine (NCCAM) currently lists Reiki as an "Energy Therapy." It is offered in many health care settings as an adjunct to medical treatments. Reiki is found to be effective in enhancing deep relaxation, and has been shown to promote an improved healing response. It is also often offered for palliative care to provide comfort measures for serious medical conditions. There has been a recent study that estimates over six million U.S. adults have received one or more Reiki treatments and that number is growing exponentially. Currently in the US about 10-15% of medical facilities offer Reiki Services as a complementary medicine modality to some or all of their clients.
How does Reiki work?
Reiki practitioners receive placements (attunements) which raise and accelerate their energy flow. The practitioner provides Reiki sessions by the gentle act of allowing energy to flow out through their hands.
Reiki works on elevating the energy level of a person, place, animal, plant etc. Usually after a treatment, a person will feel relaxed sometimes energized and at peace. Reiki energy is always positive, it can never no harm.
How Reiki sessions can help:
- Reiki is used to complement and enhance all levels of medical treatment
- It can help relieve stress, agitation, acute and chronic pain
- Can assist in the improvement of overall energy levels
- Can assist in promoting rest and improved sleep patterns
- Can assist in enhancing comfort measures
- Can help to accelerate wound healing
- Provide deep relaxation
- To heal deep emotional issues and trauma
- Release negative or stuck energy stored in the body/mind system
- To balance the overall body and energy centers/channels (Biofields/Chakra's) within the body system.
- Clear the mind and open intuitive senses to promote compassionate action towards self and others.
What are the side effects of Reiki?
There are NO side effects. It is non-invasive and safe for all ages from premature babies to the elderly. Reiki can be performed on a person while they are lying down, sitting or standing. No adjustment in clothing needs to be made, since Reiki flows through any barrier including casts.
