We often hear people speak about Reiki, or know someone who had a Reiki session, but what is Reiki?
At it’s core it is a Japanese spiritual healing practice. It is a form of alternative medicine developed in 1922 by a Japanese Buddhist Mikao Usui. Used for stress relief and relaxation it’s practitioners can also heal afflicted individuals. So what is it really? The basis of Reiki revolves around Ki, or the unseen life force that flows through all of us.
Masters of the art believe they can tap into an unlimited supply of this life force, and by channeling through their palms generally, they can direct it into the person needing healing. The practitioner may also blow, gently tap or massage the areas of the body that need healing.
What Is Reiki?
A Reiki treatment creates a wonderful glowing radiance that flows through and around the individual being healed. The whole being is treated at once including body, emotions, mind and spirit. Thus creating many beneficial effects that may include relaxation and feelings of peace, security and well being.
Many individuals have reported miraculous results. It also has many believers and proponents, despite the fact that it’s healing properties have no scientific backing. Undergoing a session, safe, natural and in many very cases very effective in treating the illness you may have.
Also it can be used in conjunction with more traditional therapies with great success. Whether you are a believer or not I urge you to find a local master in your area and sign up for a session. Enter with a open and clear mind, and the worst that can happen is that you come out very relaxed and refreshed.
