Energy is the vital life force that keeps us alive and permeates all living forms. Our bodies are made up of an energy system that affects the mind, body and spirit. When our energy is balanced, we are in a state of health. When our energy flows freely, the body’s self healing abilities are activated, enabling internal harmony and healing.
When there are energy imbalances or we are depleted of energy, our bodies are weakened and we are susceptible to pain, illness, anxiety and compromised health.
Reiki is a hands-on therapy that balances and enlivens the energy of the body, mind and spirit. It helps to remove blockages in the energy pathways that can manifest as various symptoms of illnesses. The body has an innate ability to heal itself which is activated by using Reiki to balance the bodies’ energy.
Reiki is a non-invasive technique that requires the practitioner to place their hands gently on or slightly above the person. The practitioner uses various hand positions, starting at the head and working down to the feet. The recipient is fully clothed and lies on a treatment table. Generally, the recipient feels very relaxed and a sense of peace and wellbeing. Some feel tingling, heat or other sensations.
Reiki can be used as an adjunct to any other medical treatment as well as chiropractic, acupuncture, and massage. Specifically, reiki can help a variety of issues including:
- Immune system functioning
- Acute and chronic illnesses
- Side effects of chemotherapy and radiation
- Pre- and post-surgery (to accelerate healing)
- Emotional balancing
Reiki is being offered in over 800 hospitals in the US. It is not necessary to have a medical condition to receive Reiki. It can be used alone or in conjunction with other medical treatments.
Reiki can be used to keep the body, mind and spirit in a balanced state and thus keep the recipient healthy, making it a truly effective addition to any health treatment plan.
