Reiki involves the transfer of energy from practitioner to patient and claims to enhance the body's natural ability to heal itself through the balancing of energy. Reiki utilizes specific techniques for restoring and balancing the natural life force energy within the body. It is a holistic, natuural, hands-on energy healing system that touches on all levels:body,mind,and spirit.
Reiki (pronounced ray-key) is a Japanese word representing universal life energy, the energy which is all around us.
Reiki is a Japanese technique for stress reduction and relaxation, that also promotes healing. It is administered by “laying on hands” and is based on the idea that an unseen “life force energy” flows through us and is what causes us to be alive. If one's “life force energy” is low, then we are more likely to get sick or feel stress, and if it is high, we are more capable of being happy and healthy.
The word Reiki is made of two Japanese words-Rei which means “God's Wisdom or the Higher Power” and Ki which is “life force energy”. So Reiki is actually “spiritually guided life force energy.”
Reiki is a simple, natural and safe method of spiritual healing and self-improvement that everyone can use. It has been effective in helping virtually every know illness and malady and always creates a beneficial effect. It also works in conjunction with all other medical or therapeutic techniques to relieve side effects and promote recovery.
While Reiki is spiritual in nature, it is not a religion. It has no dogma, and there is nothing you must believe in order to learn and use Reiki. In fact,Reiki is not dependent on belief at all and will work whether you believe in it or not. Because Reiki comes from God, many people find that using Reiki puts them more in touch with the experience of their religion rather than having only an intellectual concept of it.
A typical one-hour Reiki treatment begins with the client lying full clothed on a
treatment table. The practitioner places their hands on or just above the client's body on
pre-determined sites. Reiki teats holistically.
During a Reiki treatment, the universal consciousness works with the client's own body consciousness, or body wisdom, to direct the flow of ki to remove obstructions and restore balance.
I AM NOT A HEALER. YOUR BODY AND REIKI ARE THE HEALERS.
