ABOUT REIKI HEALING
Reiki is a Japanese technique for healing and stress relief. It gently yet powerfully balances life force energies and brings health and wellness to the recipient. It has been effective in helping virtually every known illness and malady and always creates a beneficial effect. Many have reported miraculous results from this form of healing. Reiki treats the whole person including the mental, emotional, spiritual and physical being. It also works in conjunction with all other medical or therapeutic techniques to relieve side effects and promote recovery. It is now practiced in over 800 hospitals in the US.
The word Reiki is made of two Japanese words – Rei which means “God’s Wisdom or the Higher Power” and Ki which means “life force energy.” So, Reiki is actually “spiritually guided life force energy!” 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 benefit from Reiki. In fact, Reiki is not dependent on belief at all and will work whether you believe in it or not. The Reiki energy is channeled through the healers hands to the recipient. Because Reiki energy has its own intelligence, it will always flow to the area or areas most in need of treatment, in addition to where it is directed by the practitioner. Most people experience some or a combination of these when receiving Reiki: heat, warmth, tingles, a sense of overall well-being, deep relaxation, positive feelings, emotional release, relief of pain, release of stress, and clarity. How strongly you feel the energy is related to many factors, ranging from your individual sensitivity to energy to your ability to relax.
Having an open mind and relaxing, gently tuned in to how you feel, can enhance your experience. Your healing experience will be unique just as you are unique.
