Reiki is a holistic method of energy medicine which quickens and aids healing on all levels: physical, mental, emotional and spiritual. Considered Complimentary Medicine in the U.S., it promotes relaxation, lessens pain, reduces stress, and increases energy. Reiki has been known to foster intuition and awareness, create inner harmony and peace, and promote vitality in both the giver and the receiver.
Reiki originated in Japan and was developed by Dr. Mikao Usui in the early 1900’s. Reiki-(pronounced ray-key): the literal Japanese translation for Rei is ‘universal spirit’, and ki is ‘life force energy’. So Reiki means universal life force energy. Reiki is NOT a religion.
How does Reiki work?
Energy Medicine is based on the premise that the human body is composed not only of structural and biochemical dimensions, but also of a subtle energy dimension which acts as an invisible blueprint for ones health and wellbeing.
The Chakras are transformers of subtle energy. They take the universal life energy that is always around us and transform it into the various frequencies our subtle energy needs to keep us healthy.
The Aura is a beautiful field of ever changing colorful patterns that completely surround all living things. It has many layers starting closest to the body and ending 4-5 feet from the body. It has an oval shape. Each layer represents a different part of a persons consciousness with the inner layer connected to the physical body and outer layers including emotional, mental, and spiritual layers.
Mapped by the Chinese over 5,000 years ago, the meridians are pathways that subtle energy flows through within the physical body. They contain energy points usually referred to as acupuncture or acupressure points. Each meridian has an organ or physical system of the body associated with it and supplies that organ or system with subtle life energy. If there are blockages along these pathways, illness will exhibit in its corresponding organ.
By using gentle, noninvasive techniques, Reiki practitioners can coax the subtle energies of the Chakra, Aura, and meridians to flow in more optimal ways thereby relieving physical and emotional discomfort and accelerating the healing process.
Our bodies are designed to heal themselves. These energies form the foundation of your health. They are the fuel and its atmosphere. But we have been placed in a world that systematically interferes with this natural capacity to heal. Your conscious involvement in your health is required.
By receiving regular energy sessions of Reiki, our subtle energy bodies are better equipped to handle the daily stressors we encounter. Reiki promotes optimal health for our total being physically, emotionally, spiritually and mentally.
What does Reiki feel like?
Recipients generally report a feeling of calm and deep relaxation which promotes restorative sleep after a treatment. Warmth is perceived from the practitioner’s hands; some positions may be ‘hotter’ than others depending on the energy needed in that area. This heat from the Reiki energy is a deeply penetrating and soothing experience.
What to expect during and after a Reiki session.
A full Reiki treatment can last an hour to an hour and a half. A 30 minute Reiki treatment is just as effective as a 1 hour Reiki treatment when we focus on the areas that need healing. The recipient is fully clothed and reclining comfortably on a massage table or a chair. The practitioner gently places his or her hands on, or just above, the recipient for 2-5 minutes in each designated position.
Recipient should wear loose or comfortable clothing with nothing binding. It is also best to remove any metal, such as jewelry, belts, and watches prior to the session. Sometimes during a session the recipients temperature drops and a light blanket may be necessary.
After a session please drink plenty of water and plan to rest for the remainder of the day. Your body will be going through energetic shifts and releasing blockages.
As your body adjusts to a more balanced way of being you may have a ‘healing reaction’. You may notice mild, transient flu like symptoms. This is encouraging, as it indicates the release of built up negative energetic ways of being.
