The word Reiki comes from the Japanese word (Rei) which means “Universal Life” and (Ki) which means “Energy”. Reiki is not affiliated with any particular religion or religious practice. It is not massage nor is it based on belief or suggestion. It is a subtle and effective form of energy work using spiritually guided life force energy.
Reiki is the life energy that flows through all living things. Reiki Practitioners understand that everyone has the ability to connect with their own healing energy and use it to strengthen energy in themselves and help others. It is believed that a person’s “ki” or energy should be strong and free flowing. When this is true a person’s body and mind is in a positive state of health. When the energy becomes weak or blocked it could lead to symptoms of physical or emotional imbalance.
A Reiki session can help ease tension and stress and can help support the body to facilitate an environment for healing on all levels – physical, mental, and emotional. A session is pleasant and relaxing and is often utilized for one’s personal wellness.
Reiki is healing energy that automatically goes to the area in your physical body or spirit where healing is most required. Reiki practitioners act as a conduit for healing Reiki energy for you, the recipient. This energy ensures that your entire spirit is in alignment by focusing on the elimination of blocks in your physical body and chakras, the Life force energy centres within you.
When your chakras are clear and balanced your own energy is able to move freely and as it does so, it strengthens infusing your personal energy on all levels; emotionally, spiritually, mentally and physically. When your energy is balanced and allowed to strengthen, your physical body and emotional spirit is better able to repair itself in many ways. It can relieve pain, discomfort in the physical sense and ease grief and/or anxiety as well as lack of self-confidence and insecurities. Reiki will also provide healing energy for cancer and other sickness and disease and has been found to be a proven healing modality in many other areas as well.
Reiki healing is a natural method of energy balancing, but is not meant as a substitute for medical or psychological diagnosis and treatment.
Reiki works well in conjunction with standard medical treatment from licensed medical professionals as the main purpose of a Reiki session is to reduce stress and to relax the recipient so that they are able to self-heal themselves or speed healing on all levels; physically, mentally, emotionally. Reiki healing can remove energy blocks which increases a recipients Life force energy enabling the healing process.
Reiki practitioners do not diagnose conditions, nor do they perform medical treatment, prescribe substances, or interfere with the treatment of a licensed medical professional.
