Reiki is a wonderfully gentle yet very powerful form of healing, administered by the laying on or over of hands. A simple, natural and safe method of body and mind self-improvement, it can be used to heal any form of illness – be it physical, emotional, mental or spiritual – and bring about improvements in a wide range of conditions, from depression and bereavement to cancer and arthritis.
The word Reiki (pronounced Ray-key), coined by Dr. Mikao Usui, means Universal and Life-Force Energy, and it is said to be such because it is the essential underlying energy common to all living things, creating everything from the densest levels of matter to the highest levels of consciousness. Because the life-force energy that Reiki boost is essential for all the various activities and functions of a living being, Reiki can assist with all forms of illness, disease and disorder, whether physical, emotional, mental or spiritual.
When we get sick and feel stressed it is because this energy is low. In the same vein, when it is elevated we are more likely to be happy and healthy. Reiki raises the vibration frequency of that energy, soothing pain and supporting the body’s natural ability to heal itself, restoring balance in one’s life.
Unlike contemporary medicine, whose focus is on the physical nature of our being, Reiki treats the whole person – body, emotions, mind and spirit – creating beneficial effects that include relaxation and feelings of peace, security and wellbeing.
The earliest archeological evidence for Reiki has been found in Tibet dating back approximately ten thousand years ago. Evidence also suggests that it was known in ancient India, Egypt, Greece, Rome and China approximately two and a half thousand years ago. The knowledge of Reiki is then thought to have been common among indigenous peoples throughout the world until the time of Western colonisation, when it was lost due to warfare.
In the early 1900’s a scholar in Japan by the name of Dr. Mikao Usui rediscovered the Reiki formula in an ancient Sanskrit sutra written in the ancient Indian language, Sanskrit. With these teachings he established the first Reiki school, teaching the process to many people, one of whom was Dr. Chujiro Hayashi, a retired medical doctor. After qualifying, Hayashi went on to open his own Reiki clinic in Tokyo, treating many people, among them a woman by the name of Hawayo Takata. Later, Takata took Reiki back to Hawaii, where she proceeded to teach and heal hundreds of people and it is her teachings that now form the basis of what we know as Reiki today.
The structure of a treatment is very simple. Lying on a bed fully clothed, clients are invited to close their eyes while the practitioner carries out the treatment. There is no need to remove any clothing, apart from your shoes, as Reiki will pass through anything. This even includes plaster casts.
A treatment takes between 1 and 1½ hours, but duration is flexible, depending on how long a client is able and willing to lie still for.
It is possible to heal at every level: physical, mental, emotional and spiritual, and Reiki can treat the entire being, both within and without. Acute injuries can be helped to heal very quickly and benefits can be felt as early as the first session. More chronic illness takes longer and, in some cases (such as terminal illness), there is not enough time for the progress of the disease to be reversed. However, even in such cases, there is usually great benefit and enhancement of the quality of life, giving a sense of peace and acceptance during the time remaining.
Reiki has many benefits and is good for:
- Relaxation and Stress Reduction
- Accelerated Healing
- Blood Pressure
- Acute Injuries
- Pain Relief
- Recovery from Surgery
- Drug Elimination
- A Healthy Immune System
- Emotional Clearing
- Spiritual Growth
When we are relaxed and stress-free we are able to restore our natural ability to heal. Longterm practice of Reiki restores the general condition of the body, allowing it to deal properly and naturally with stress and toxicity build up. Reiki will also provide additional energy, required to recover from illness.
A Reiki healing session can induce an extremely comfortable state of being that can bring about alteration in the clients consciousness.
If used with other natural therapies (meditation, crystals, aromatherapy, Bach Flower remedies, homeopathy, etc….) Reiki will reinforce their effect.
Reiki healing complements Eastern and Western medicine and everybody can benefit from it. It is also excellent on animals.
Reiki healing energy is a tool for use at any moment, anytime or anywhere, ideal for on-the-spot stress release, pain relief and quick energy.
Reiki is a non-invasive healing system which works to promote the health and well being of the entire physical, emotional and psychic body.
Reiki is a specific type of subtle energy work in which healing is performed by the touch of the hands, allowing the flow of the energy from a limitless source to the patient via the Reiki practitioner.
Reiki healing is a pure energy form which, (in combination with the sincere desire of the Healee who is willing to effect a cleansing within their emotional and spiritual consciousness) provides total healing in the recipient.
