Reiki is a Japanese healing technique by using energy, which is done only by applying the hands on the body, being non-aggressively safe and pleasant. This can treat physical and emotional pain and serious illness without pressure, manipulation, massage or medication.
What is Reiki?
Reiki is a simple but very deep system of natural healing of the body, mind and soul, which was developed in the 19th century by Dr. Mihao Usui in Japan. With the help of Reiki, by simply touching the body, or even without direct touch (but with the hands held above the body), physical pain can be healed using energy. This process can also be used to restore and harmonize body-mind-soul, to restore the balance between body, emotions, mind and spirit. Reiki comes from REI (universe, spiritual) and KI (Chi – phytal force energy).
According to various studies, energy can be directed with the help of this therapy to support the body’s innate strength to heal itself, naturally. Everything around us is vital energy, and inside the body, energy flows through the meridians. When emotional blockages and stress occur, these channels are blocked, resulting in illness and disease. Reiki is meant to harmonize and realign the inner circuit and restore normal energy flow. Thus, this process is the purest form of energy, having a profound effect on our health and well-being, rebalancing us.
Reiki treatment has been integrated into hospitals and health centers in the United States for several years, with numerous studies showing that this therapy reduces pain and anxiety in patients. At the same time, it induces relaxation, relieves the symptoms of depression and accelerates the healing of diseases.
The Japanese teacher and monk, Mikao Usui, discovered this technique following a personal initiation received during a retreat. As a theology teacher and director of a boys’ school, he was asked how Jesus could heal people with his palms, and not knowing the answer to this question, he embarked on a journey of knowledge to discover how miracles can be performed. After years of searching, Mihao retired for 21 days to a mountain sanctuary, where he meditated, eventually receiving the initiation of healing and becoming aware of subtle colors and Buddhist symbols of healing. Then he began to work miracles by healing people.
The basis of Reiki therapy is the belief that the disease is caused when the vital energy in the body is in imbalance, and its harmonization restores health. He discovered the ancient concept of the inexhaustible source of energy that can be used for healing.
How does Reiki work?
In order to practice Reiki it is necessary to be initiated by a master and there are several levels. The higher the degree of initiation, the stronger the energy transmitted by the therapist. During such a session the patient lies on a bed, or even on a chair and the therapist walks his palms over his body or at different points (energy center, or chakras). Reiki can also be used as a self-treatment. Reiki feels different from person to person and from one session to another. In general, patients who have a strong imbalance will feel cold, heat, tingling or chills during the harmonization of energies. At the same time, they can feel the energy circulating through the body or they can experience various pains in the body. No matter what the sensations are, you shouldn’t pay too much attention to them, just watch them and let them go.
Reiki therapy can be used even on animals, even remotely, with exactly the same effects as a person session. Reiki is already a form of alternative medicine, providing both physical and emotional energy healing.
Such a session can last between 15 and 90 minutes, depending on the patient’s needs and can be used to harmonize all aspects of life, not just health.
