What is Reiki?
Reiki is a healing technique based on the principle that the practitioner can channel universal energy into the patient by means of “hands-on” and also “hands-off”, to activate the natural healing processes encouraging emotional or physical healing.
Reiki healing technique was developed by the Japanese Dr Mikao Usui, “Rei” is defined as (Rei)Universal (Ki)Energy, it is all-knowing divine universal energy that animates all living things, flowing through everything that is alive (including plants, animals, and humans). It is used all over the world by people of many different faiths, cultures, and spiritual paths.
Reiki is an energy healing modality, where the practitioner acts as a conduit for universal energy, in order to rebalance and clear blockages in the chakras, or energy centers. It can help clear out blocked energy pathways, promoting equilibrium in the body and a sense of feeling grounded, with a deeper connection to the true self.
Reiki uses “hands-on” and also “hands-off/Beaming/Distance” healing, that can assist in relieving or reducing pain and discomfort by balancing the body’s energy centers, or chakras. It is a natural process that supports relaxation and healing by removing blocks to the flow of energy in your body, facilitating balance and support on all levels. When the energy flow in your body is restored and/or balanced, you are more likely to feel relaxed and your body’s natural healing abilities are utilized.
Reiki can be so powerful and effective because it infuses your chakras along with your body with the energy of the universe. Your body takes exactly what it needs at that point in time, and the Reiki practitioner’s role is to act as a channel of universal energy to help facilitate that healing, so that the body can heal itself. When you infuse Reiki into areas of the body that are energetically or physically weak, the healing process can begin as your body allows itself to fully release.
