Reiki Energy Healing: Mental and physical health benefits

What is Reiki?

Reiki is a healing technique that originated in Tibet and has been practiced for over 2,500 years.

Strictly speaking, reiki means Universal Life Force Energy. It is one of the more widely known forms of healing through direct application of Chi, or a force very similar to Chi.

Chi

Chi is the term used by the Chinese mystics and martial artists for the underlying force the Universe is made of.

What does Reiki do?

It is believed that reiki can relieve pain, boosts the immune system and relieves acute problems. This is believed because physical manifestations of pain are often linked to emotional, mental and spiritual states. Chronic illnesses may take a series of treatments, depending on the specific nature of the disease. Reiki goes beyond the symptoms to treat the root cause of the disease. When we treat only the symptoms, we do not always get to the true basis of the illness.

How is Reiki performed?

Reiki practice consists of the practitioner places his or her hands upon the person to be healed with the intent for healing to occur, and then the energy begins flowing.

The reiki practitioner uses their hands to channel energy from the universe to your body so your body can heal itself.

The main distinction between Reiki and other energy healing techniques is that a practitioner can channel the Reiki energy through their hands into their own body.
