What is Reiki?

A Japanese technique for reducing stress and inducing relaxation, Reiki promotes healing.  It is a spiritual “life force energy” and incorporates elements from other healing practices such as spiritual healing, auras, crystals, chakra balancing, meditation, aromatherapy, naturopathy and homeopathy. It consists of two Japanese words-Rei which means “God’s Wisdom or the High Power” and Ki means “ vital life force energy”.

If the “life force energy” is low than one feels low and stressed and if it is high then one is happy and healthy. Reiki involves the transfer of energy from practitioner to patient and enhances the body’s natural ability to heal itself through the balancing of energy.  It restores and balances the natural life force energy within the body. It has a holistic approach to healing as it encompasses healing at all levels- the body, mind and spirit.

Method of Reiki

Hands are laid above the person to be healed, who draws energy from it. The individual or rather the recipient takes an active part in the healing process as compared to the recipient in spiritual healing. The recipient is aware of his needs and accordingly draws energy for his healing purposes.

Most Reiki practices do not involve touching. The practitioner holds his or her hands above the body and  manipulates the energy forces from there.  The master is the link with God. He has the healing power.

The treatment can last for an hour or longer.  All the important parts of the body are covered. No pressure on the body, so a person of all ages can undergo it.  The energy flows through and one can feel the sensations and tingling in the body.
