Heal, De-stress and Relax: Reiki

Reiki is a Japanese form of stress reduction and relaxation that also promotes healing. It is based on the Asian concept of life energy and is done by “laying on hands”. A subtle energy flows from the hands of the practitioner into the client, and it’s this energy that creates the relaxation and healing effect. It often feels like a warming sensation on the area being worked on.

In Japan this energy is called Ki (key). Ki is in everything; plants, animals, humans, food, water, earth, sunlight…

The Ki within the physical body, mind, and emotions are affected by our thoughts and feelings. If we have positive ones, our Ki will be strengthened, and we will be more confident, have more energy, enthusiasm, and be more likely to succeed at what we do.

The scientific theory of Reiki shows that some of the healing aspects of it have been demonstrated to exist using known laws of physics and biology. An important part of functioning of the human body is it’s electrical nature. You have electrical currents flowing through the nerves, blood, all organs and cells. These currents are weak compared with the electrical current flowing through the wiring in your home, but they are exactly the right strength for the human body, and are a necessary part of sustaining life.

All illness starts first in the human energy field before manifesting in the physical body.

The human energy field is a matrix of subtle energy fields that surround and penetrate the physical body. These fields contain the blueprints for the physical body and tell the organs, tissues, and cells what to do, and how to function. The energy fields also contain blueprints for our emotions, thoughts, and higher levels of consciousness.

Ki (subtle energy) is affected by the mind, causing it to support our health, or to move us toward toward dysfunction, illness, and disease.

During a Reiki session, this energy (Ki) flows into the client’s energy field and around the organs and tissues, helping to remove “bad” Ki. The natural flow of “good” Ki is restored along with the person’s health. Reiki provides a higher level of nurturing to the body’s organs and tissues. It also works on the mind, emotions, and spirit. This makes us feel better than before.

A session feels good and relaxing. It helps develop wonderful feelings of joy, peace, love, and confidence. When we feel good or peaceful on the “inside” it helps decrease our physical pain. Reiki also works well when applied to an injured area, or any area affected by pain, whether it is from arthritis, or just soreness from tense muscles caused by stress. Reiki helps decrease anxiety, and can help lift us when feeling depressed.
