What Is Reiki?

Reiki is a healing technique that was developed by the Japanese Buddhist Mikao Usui in 1922. “Rei” is defined as the all-knowing divine universal, and “Ki” is the 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 for stress reduction and relaxation that also promotes healing, where the practitioner acts as a conductor for universal energy, in order to rebalance and clear blockages in the chakras, (energy centers along the spine).

The reason why Reiki can be so powerful and effective is that the Reiki practitioner channels this pure loving energy directly from the universe into the body of the person receiving Reiki.

When I give Reiki, I like to think that I am channeling the energy through my breath like my body is a straw sucking up and then directly passing this energy to another person. This energy is not from the practitioner but only passes through them. After a practitioner gives Reiki, they usually feel refreshed and often have vivid dreams that night.

Reiki uses “hands-on” and also “hands-off” healing, that can assist in relieving or reducing pain and discomfort by balancing the chakras. Reiki works to remove blocks to the flow of energy in your body, facilitating balance and support throughout the entire body. When the energy flow in your body is restored and/or balanced, you are more likely to feel relaxed and invigorated.

A treatment feels like a wonderful glowing radiance that flows through and around you. Reiki treats the whole person including body, emotions, mind and spirit creating many beneficial effects that include relaxation and feelings of peace, security and well-being.

It is administered by “laying on hands” and is based on the idea that an unseen “life force energy” flows through us and is what causes us to be alive. If one’s “life force energy” is low, then we are more likely to get sick or feel stress, and if it is high, we are more capable of being happy and healthy.
