The Healing Power of Reiki
What is Reiki?
Reiki is a Japanese technique for stress reduction and relaxation that also promotes healing. Administered with a light touch, Reiki channels and balances that unseen life force energy that flows through us and causes us to be alive. If your energy is low, then you are more likely to get sick or feel stress. When your energy is high, you 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 means energy. So Reiki is the application of spiritually guided life force energy. Some refer to it as the power of prayer.
What is a Reiki Treatment Like?
During a Reiki treatment you lie down on a massage table or sit in a massage chair. You remain fully clothed during the treatment. The healer will lightly place his/her hands on various areas of your body where the Reiki energy is needed. You don't have to do a thing. You don’t even have to believe in it. Just lay back and relax. You can even sleep if you'd like. Some people report feeling warmth, even heat from the healer's hands. Some feel tingling. All feel relaxed. Reiki is an amazing gift, a powerful tool in your storehouse of wellness. Many clients say they feel best with a regular treatment schedule.
Who can be treated with Reiki?
Reiki has had a positive effect on all forms of illness and negative conditions. This includes minor things like head or stomach aches, bee stings, colds, flu, tension and anxiety as well as serious illness like heart disease, cancer, leukemia, etc. The side effects of regular medical treatments have also been 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. Reiki always helps and in some cases people have experienced complete healings which have been confirmed by medical tests before and after the Reiki treatments. However, while some have experienced miracles, they cannot be guaranteed. Stress reduction with some improvement in ones physical and psychological condition are what most experience.
