Reiki is a natural energy 'holistic healing' system that originated in Japan and was developed by Dr Mikao Usui, a Japanese Buddhist Monk during the 1920's, and since it's discovery has seen many
The word Reiki can be broken down into two parts 'Rei' which represents: sacred, soul, spirit, mystery, gift; And Ki: the life force energy that flows through every living thing: people, animals, plants.
Reiki can bring comfort and help with a host of conditions and issues, supporting and accelerating your own body's natural ability to heal emotionally, physiologically, psychologically and spiritually. It can also enhance other types of complementary therapy such yoga therapy, massage, reflexology as well as conventional medical treatment. Although it can be very effective, Reiki should not be regarded as a cure for any medical condition.
You don't need to 'believe' in Reiki for it to work, just as you don't need to believe in Electricity to switch on a light. While everything in the universe is made up of energy, we have only discovered a small fraction of energy on a physics level too. Energy exists, on a continuum from most dense/least conscience, i.e. 'physical matter' to least dense/most conscious, i.e. 'spiritual'.
Reiki is a 'spiritual energy' that vibrates at a very high frequency, working at an energetic level with the physical matter of the body and the electromagnetic field that surrounds it. A Reiki practitioner channels this universal healing energy which is abundant and all around us to flow into the recipient (or themselves) for their highest good by placing the hands gently on or just above different areas the body.
Typically, the physical responses experienced during a Reiki treatment are deep relaxation, tingling, heat and cooling sensations flowing through areas of the body. Recipients may also reach a meditative state and feel like they are floating, sinking or see images, colours, scenarios playing out. In some cases, clients experience the release of suppressed emotions and problems. This is the result of Reiki energy vibrating through the body balancing energy and stimulating the body's natural healing process.
