Reiki is a form of complementary therapy relating to energy healing. It works with the energy fields around the body and involves the transfer of universal energy from the practitioner’s palms to the client. Many people who receive Reiki claim to experience positives outcomes such as positive energy and health benefits.
What is Reiki?
Reiki is a type of energy healing. Energy can stagnate in the body where there has been physical injury or even emotional pain. In time, these energy blocks can cause illness.
Energy medicine aims to help the flow of energy and remove blocks in a similar way to acupuncture or acupressure. Reiki practitioners believe that improving the flow of energy around the body can enable relaxation, relieve pain, speed healing, and reduce other symptoms of illness.
What happens in a Reiki session?
Practitioners will typically give Reiki treatment in a peaceful, private setting. However, the treatment can take place anywhere. During a session, the client will sit in a comfortable chair or lie on a table, fully clothed.
The Practitioner will then place their hands lightly on or over specific areas of the client’s head, limbs or torso. They will typically keep their hands in these positions for up to10 minutes.
Advocates state that this causes an energy transfer to take place from the Practitioner to the client. Some practitioners will use crystals and essential oils to enable healing or protect a client from negative energy. Sessions last 45-60mins.The number of sessions vary, depending on what a client wishes to accomplish. Some clients have more than one session if they have a pressing issue.
Reiki removes negative energy and helps in relaxation. According to practitioners, Reiki channels universal energy known as ‘chi’. This is the same energy involved in tai chi exercise. The energy permeates the body. Reiki experts point out that although the energy is not measurable with modern scientific techniques, many who tune into it can feel it.
Reiki aids relaxation, assists in the body’s natural healing processes, and develops emotional, mental and spiritual well-being. Evidence suggests that it may induce deep relaxation, help people cope with difficulties, relieve emotional stress, and improve overall well-being.
