What Is Reiki?
Reiki (pronounced RAY-key) is a Japanese word and literally translates as “Universal Life-force Energy”. It is an ancient form of healing using the natural energy of which all matter is created. In Chinese culture this energy is referred to as “chi”, in the Japanese culture as “ki”, in East Indian cultures as “prana”, and in Western cultures as “bioenergy” (particularly when referring to the energy within plants and animals).
The practice of Reiki is believed to have originated in the Tibetan culture (with the Tibetan Monks over two thousand years ago) and was “rediscovered” in the Sutras in the late nineteenth century by Dr. Mikao Usui of Japan.
Those practitioners who follow the basic guidelines set forth by Dr. Usui often refer to their practice as the “Usui System of Reiki”. In the twentieth century, Reiki Masters brought this form of healing to the USA, Europe, and other parts of the world.
How does Reiki work?
The knowledge that an unseen energy flows through all living things and is connected directly to the quality of health, has been part of the wisdom of many cultures since ancient times. The existence of this “Life-force Energy” has been verified by numerous scientific experiments, and medical doctors are considering the role it plays in the functioning of the immune system and the healing process.
Reiki is a holistic form of healing and helps to integrate the physical, emotional, mental, and spiritual components of one’s-self by balancing the energy centers (chakras) plus the nervous, endocrine and circulatory systems of the body. It stimulates natural immunity, promotes relaxation, and is helpful with both chronic and acute problems. Reiki can even be used for healing animals and plants. Reiki is a complementary form of healing and can be used in conjunction with other Western and Eastern healing modalities.
Reiki is a technique for stress reduction and relaxation that allows everyone to tap into an unlimited supply of “Life-force Energy” to improve health and enhance the quality of life. It could also be said that Reiki facilitates a harmony, which grows into a subtle resonance between the human body/mind with the outer universe, which encapsulates them.
A treatment feels like a wonderful glowing radiance that flows through you and surrounds you. Reiki treats the whole person including body, emotions, mind and Spirit, and creates many beneficial effects, including feelings of peace, safety and well-being, as well as blissful relaxation!
