Reiki, a Japanese energy healing technique developed in the early 1900s by Mikao Usui, utilizes gentle touch to promote relaxation, alleviate stress, and enhance energy flow in the body. The term "Reiki" combines "rei," meaning universal, with "ki," referring to life force energy. Health benefits include inducing a meditative state, supporting tissue and bone healing, and stimulating the immune system. Reiki complements traditional medical treatments and is not a substitute for professional consultation. While it can enhance stress response and serve as preventive medicine for those in good health, it is not intended to replace traditional medical care.
This holistic approach offers personal advantages such as stress reduction, self-healing, energy balancing, enhanced intuition, and support for others. It may contribute to spiritual growth, pain management, and emotional well-being. Conditions that Reiki may help include cancer, chronic pain, infertility, digestive problems, Parkinson's disease, and psychological distress.
During an in person Reiki session, lasting around 50 minutes, the recipient lies fully clothed on a table as the practitioner places hands on or above specific energy locations. Sensations such as heat, tingling, or pulsing may be experienced, with most people feeling relaxed and peaceful, often drifting into sleep during the treatment.
Distance healing, also known as remote healing or absent healing, is a form of energy healing in which the practitioner channels healing energy to a recipient who is not physically present. Unlike traditional hands-on healing methods, distance healing transcends geographical limitations, allowing the practitioner to send healing energy to individuals, animals, or even situations regardless of their location.
Reiki, a Japanese technique for stress reduction, relaxation, and healing, treats the whole person—body, emotions, mind, and spirit. It is a simple, natural, and safe method for spiritual healing and self-improvement. While not a religion, Reiki encourages ethical ideals and harmony. Attunement given by a Reiki master allow individuals to tap into an unlimited supply of life force energy for improved health and enhanced quality of life. The practice is inclusive, not dependent on belief, and has been successfully taught to people of all ages and backgrounds.
