Reiki is energy. It is a Japanese word, ‘rei’ meaning soul or spirit, and ‘ki’, life force energy. The practice of reiki he or energy healing is simply the free exchange of universal life force energy. It is based on the universal truth that everything is made of energy, and reiki is the energy, also known as “chi” or “prana”, that everything and everyone is made of.
A Reiki practitioner will place their hands either lightly on or above a client’s body, channeling universal life energy to the client, while removing any toxic or stuck energy knots that are preventing healing from occurring. The client stays fully clothed, as it is a completely non-invasive treatment – Reiki is always safe. It will work with your unique energy body, and naturally flows where it is needed, just like water fills a glass or ice cube tray.
Although Reiki is not a cure, it can be used to shift your mind, body, and spirit into balance, thus allowing healing to happen. I believe the root cause of most disease & illness is usually at the soul or energy level, when this life force energy is blocked or stuck. If it isn’t dealt with, it grows until it shows up at the physical level- as a back ache, a cold, etc. – to really get your attention. As many teachers before me have said, “the issues are in the tissues”. That is why I believe it is so important to keep your energy clear and grounded, and Reiki is one thing that can help with that.
After a treatment, Reiki recipients report feelings of immediate stress relief and overall well-being, making it the perfect compliment to other treatments and alternative therapies.
