What is Reiki?
Reiki is a Japanese word derived from two words – rei (universal divine energy) and ki (own vital energy).
Reiki is a universal energy that knows no limits and is available to everyone. It is an ancient Japanese art of healing by energy transfer through “laying down of hands.” It relaxes, reduces stress, heals the mind and body by balancing subtle energies within us. It’s a way to develop your own happiness.
Dr. Mikao Usui is the founder of Reiki as a natural way of healing self and others. This is a simple way of implementing the universal life energy that establishes energy balance of the body and thus helps traditional forms of treatment and works preventively as a method of preserving health.
How it works?
The method of receiving Reiki is very simple. A person who wants to receive treatment is simply placed in a comfortable position, either lying down or sitting. Reiki is based on laying down a hand on certain parts of the body. Every body part is being treated for several minutes. Reiki treatment can be carried out anywhere and at any time, it does not require any special equipment. A person who works with energies of Reiki is only a channel of flow, which conducts a universal life energy. The complete treatment takes about forty minutes, and a person receiving the treatment can feel the body vibrating or heating in parts above which the therapist holds the hand, as well as relaxation, and may start a dream.
When does Reiki help?
It is possible to heal on all levels: physical, mental, emotional or spiritual. In acute symptoms and diseases, healing can be very quick, in chronic illnesses it takes more time and more work, depending on the state of the organism as a whole. With Reiki energy we can treat self and others with the aim of: disease prevention, preservation of health, accelerating and improving the treatment of diseases and symptoms, rehabilitation, stress reduction.
Reiki can be implemented on animals and plants as well.
Like all alternative methods, Reiki is not a substitute for medical methods. One of the best “auxiliary” therapies for healing and self-healing, sufficient to alleviate or even remove many psychosomatic problems and blockages. Recovery and healing are 4 – 10 times faster than predicted if Reiki treatments are done in parallel with the medical treatment applied. All hospitals in the West have their Reiki therapists.
