Reiki is an ancient practice that has been used for centuries in the healing of the body, emotion and mind, creating many beneficial effects including relaxation and reduction of stress.
This natural healing originated in Tibet. The name “Reiki” (rey-key) comes from the technique as re-discovered by Dr. Mikao Usui, a Japanese Buddhist in the early 20th century.
How Does Reiki Work?
The body is more than just a collection of functioning parts. Since everything generates a frequency, the body and its organs have their own energy field which is continually changing. All conditions of disease are rooted in this energy system. If our “life force” is low or blocked, we are more likely to get sick. But if it is high and flowing freely, we can maintain our health and well-being.
Reiki helps to stimulate the body’s natural healing abilities and gently balances the life energies, bringing health and well-being to the recipient. This simple, non-invasive healing system works to promote health and well-being of the entire physical, emotional and mental body.
Potential Health Benefits of Reiki Healing Treatments
When the body’s “life force energy” is disrupted, weakened or blocked, emotional or health problems tend to occur. Imbalances can be caused by many situations occurring in our lives, such as emotional or physical trauma, injury, negative thoughts and feelings, including fear, worry, doubt, anger, and anxiety, negative self-talk, toxicity, nutritional depletion, destructive lifestyle and relationships, neglect of self and lack of love for oneself or others, emotions that are not expressed in a healthy way, etc…
Reiki is an excellent method for healing any physical, mental and emotional issues and it gives wonderful results. Some of Reiki’s healing benefits include:

What Can Be Expected in a Reiki Session
A Reiki practitioner is trained in channelling the abundant energy that exists in the universe and using it to heal the recipient by the gentle placing of hands on the body. This placement allows the energy to “flow” from the practitioner to the recipient and target specific areas within the body that require balancing in order to maintain the “natural balance” intended.
A Reiki healing session can induce an extremely comfortable state of being and relaxation that can bring alteration in the client’s consciousness. Reiki healing complements Eastern and Western medicine and everybody can benefit from it. It is beneficial to the health of women (even pregnant), men, and children.
Long Term Effects of Reiki
Long term practice of Reiki will help keep the body’s natural balance in order. When this balance is restored we are generally more relaxed, stress-free, and better able to heal ourselves. The body can also heal itself naturally, deal properly with stress and built-up toxins, and cope with anxiety and depression. Reiki will also provide additional energy required to recover from illness.
When a person is in good health, regular therapy will increase the body’s built-in defences. This will manifest itself as confidence and outward harmony in dealing with everyday events. The person will gain a more positive outlook on life!
