Proven Remedies And Treatments
Reiki (pronounced “ray-key”) is a Japanese word meaning “universal life energy”. This life force energy resides in all created matter: animal, vegetable or mineral, and can be used as a healing energy by a trained Reiki practitioner. This ancient healing art connects the mind, body and spirit, and is the most widely known form of natural, hands-on healing. It is effective in stimulating the natural functions of the body, promoting effective healing at the deepest levels of a person’s being, where illnesses originate.
Energy flows like electrical currents through the body. As stress, tension or unreleased emotions collect in our bodies, energy blocks are created, disrupting the body’s natural flow and rhythm. Reiki, an entirely holistic and healing energy in its truest sense, helps the person heal from within, irrespective of the symptoms. It works where the recipient needs it most, releasing blocked energies, cleansing the body of toxins and working to create a state of balance and harmony. Reiki brings about deep relaxation, destroys energy blockages, detoxifies the system, provides new vitality in the form of healing universal life energy, and increases the vibrational frequency of the body.
It has been effective in helping virtually every known 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.
Reiki benefits the whole person and cannot be harmful in any way.
What is Reiki energy therapy?
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.
How does Reiki Work?
We are alive because life force is flowing through us. Life force flows within the physical body through pathways called chakras, meridians and nadis. It also flows around us in a field of energy called the aura. Life force nourishes the organs and cells of the body, supporting them in their vital functions. When this flow of life force is disrupted, it causes diminished function in one or more of the organs and tissues of the physical body.
The life force is responsive to thoughts and feelings. It becomes disrupted when we accept, either consciously or unconsciously, negative thoughts or feelings about ourselves and our experiences. These negative thoughts and feelings attach themselves to the energy field and cause a disruption in the flow of life force. This diminishes the vital function of the organs and cells of the physical body.
Where does Reiki energy come from?
Reiki energy is the same energy that fills the universe, our world and the space we occupy. It is our life force.
How is a Reiki treatment given?
In a standard treatment Reiki energy flows from the practitioner’s hands into the client. The client is usually laying on a massage table but treatment can also be given while the client is seated or even standing. The client remains fully clothed. The practitioner places her/his hands on or near the clients body in a series of hand positions. These include positions around the head and shoulders, the stomach, and feet. Other, more specific positions may be used based on the clients’ needs. Each position is held for three to ten minutes depending on how much Reiki the client needs at each position. The whole treatment usually lasts from 15 to 30 minutes.
Are there any side effects from a Reiki energy therapy?
Most of the time a person will feel relaxed and uplifted by a Reiki energy therapy. However, sometimes a person will have what is called a healing crisis. As a person’s vibration goes up, toxins that have been stored in the body will be released into the blood stream to be filtered by the liver and kidneys and removed from the system. When this happens, sometimes a person can get a headache or stomach ache or feel weak. If this happens, it is a good idea to drink more water, eat lighter meals and get more rest. The body is cleansing as part of the healing process so this is a good sign.
Is Reiki a Religion?
Although Reiki energy is spiritual in nature, Reiki is not a religion. Practitioners are not asked to change any religious or spiritual beliefs they may have. They are free to continue believing anything they choose and are encouraged to make their own decisions concerning the nature of their religious practices.
What does a Reiki energy treatment feel like?
What one experiences during a Reiki treatment varies somewhat from person to person. However, feelings of deep relaxation are usually felt by all. In addition, many feel a wonderful glowing radiance that flows through and surrounds them. As the Reiki energy encourages one to let go of all tension, anxiety, fear or other negative feelings a state of peace and well-being is experienced. Some drift off to sleep. At the end of the treatment, one feels refreshed with a more positive, balanced outlook.
What can be treated with Reiki?
Reiki has had a positive affect on all forms of illness and negative conditions. This includes minor things like head or stomach aches, colds, flu, tension and anxiety as well as serious illness. The side effects of regular medical treatments can also be reduced or eliminated. This includes the negative effects of chemotherapy, post operative pain and depression as well as improving the healing rate and reducing the time needed to stay in the hospital or step-down facility. Reiki always helps.
