Understanding Reiki

Reiki was developed by Mikao Usui in 1922 and is used to heal physical and emotional trauma.  It can also assist with supporting mental clarity and spiritual well-being.  Most people report having less pain and feeling very relaxed and calm after a treatment.

Reiki works with a person’s “life force” which flows through the pathways in our bodies called “chakras”.  When this energetic flow is disrupted, organs and tissues in the body can have diminished functioning leading ultimately to disease.  Reiki energy heals by flowing through the affected chakra area changing the blockage to a positive vibrational flow.

Reiki energy is channeled by individuals who have received special training allowing them to be “attuned” to this particular type of energy.  Reiki can never do harm because it is guided by the God-consciousness.  It always “knows” what is needed and therefore adjusts itself within the person to go directly to where the healing is needed.

There are many benefits to receiving Reiki treatments.  The top 5 benefits are as follows:

  • Reiki promotes harmony and balance within the body. It also helps to balance feminine and masculine energy.
  • Reiki creates a deep relaxation which helps the body release stress and tension.
  • Reiki allows the body to cleanse itself from toxins and it also helps to support the immune system.
  • Reiki can improve sleep.
  • Reiki relieves pain and promotes healing within the body.
