Reiki (pronounced ray-kee) is a system of energy healing. It uses universal life force energy, that exists everywhere, and runs through all living things. It has been known through history by different names (chi, qi, ki, ti, prana, universal life force, biofield). This energy is channeled through the practitioner to the recipient. The recipient’s body then absorbs the energy (which it can use to promote relaxation and healing).
If the natural energy flow through the body is weakened or blocked it can manifest itself in stress and other physical symptoms. Reiki can increase and balance these energies, and has been known to help with many illnesses such as stress, headaches, insomnia, anxiety, and physical conditions. Reiki also promotes emotional healing, helping people release the emotional toll taken by feelings such as anger, fear, worry, sadness, guilt, etc. It helps replace them with a more calm and tranquil emotional state.
Many emotional or physical health problems or stresses can cause a disrupted energy flow throughout the body. These can be emotional trauma or physical injury. They can include emotional issues like negative self-defeating thoughts such as fear, worry, anxiety, negative self-talk, or unhealthy relationships. They can also include physical factors like toxic environments or unhealthy nutrition.
Our bodies need to be relaxed (stress free) to maintain their natural self-healing ability.
Reiki can promote healing of physical, mental, emotional and spiritual issues.
The potential benefits can include deep relaxation, stress relief, relief of anxiety, aid in the body’s self-healing, better sleeping patterns, reduced blood pressure, relief from pain, relief for acute (injuries) or chronic problems (I.e. asthma, headaches), flushing of toxins from the body, removal of energy blockages, reduction of the side effects of medically prescribed drug prescriptions, increased physical energy, raises the vibrational frequency of the body, aids in spiritual growth and awareness.
