Reiki is a very gentle, non-invasive form of “energy work.” The development of Reiki is attributed to a Japanese Buddhist named Mikai Usui (1865-1926). Reiki is based on the idea that there is life force energy that can be encouraged to flow. The word Reiki is made of two Japanese words. Rei means “God’s Wisdom ” and Ki (known as “Chi” is Chinese) is “life force energy.”
Reiki is not massage. Reiki is a Japanese technique for stress reduction and relaxation that also promotes healing. 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.
What Does a Reiki Session Feel Like?
You begin by laying down, fully clothed, with relaxing music in the background. The Reiki practitioner will gently rest their hands on you in a series of positions, from the crown of the head to the feet. The Reiki practitioner holds the position for several minutes, then moves to the next position. A good Reiki session should be deeply relaxing and leave you feeling calmer and more balanced. The 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.
