What is Reiki?
Reiki is a form of energy therapy.
Reiki was developed in Japan in 1922 by Mikao Usui and was brought to the West in 1937 by Hawayo Takata. The popularity of Reiki has grown exponentially in the past few decades.
The awareness that an unseen energy flows through all living things and directly affects the quality of a person’s health has been part of the wisdom of many cultures since ancient times. This life energy goes by many names: Chi in China, Ki in Japan, and Prana in India. The ancient Hawaiians called it Ti or Ki. It has also been called Orgone energy and Elan Vital, and science refers to it as Biofield energy.
When your life energy is low, it is more difficult to deal with stress, you may not sleep well, and you’re more susceptible to illness. When your life energy is strong, you feel strong, can more easily deal with stress, and are less likely to get sick. Reiki is a technique that increases a person’s supply of life energy.
What is a Session Like?
Reiki is administered through the hands of a Reiki practitioner with the client lying fully clothed. A session lasts about an hour depending on the treatment at that time, can be shorter or longer. The Reiki practitioner places his or her hands at locations around the head and shoulders, abdomen and on the legs and feet. Tissue is not manipulated. The practitioner’s hands are simply held at each location, lightly touching or slightly away from the body. Reiki energy flows from the practitioner’s hands and into the client’s body and energy field. A Reiki session feels like a wonderful glowing radiance that surrounds and fills the client and includes feelings of relaxation, peace and well-being that also promote healing. However, experience is unique to each person.
Animals are more sensitive to energy and often respond to Reiki energy more quickly than people do. Reiki is one of only a few healing methods that involve no harm to any living thing in order to bring about healing.
Reiki energy is not limited by time or distance. Distant healings can be given without the client being present. It is easily done and works as well as with the client being present.
