Reiki Therapy is an ancient system of healing rediscovered in Japan in the late 19th century. Reiki translates as Universal (Rei) Life Energy (Ki). Ki, the same Qi of traditional Chinese medicine, is the energy that is the energy that flows within us and supports life. When Qi fails to flow or is depleted, symptoms of disease can occur.

A Reiki therapist accesses Qi from its source and channel it onto others to produce healing effects. Reiki promotes harmony in body and mind, helping recharge, realign, and rebalance our energy. It can be very effective for the treatment of pain, depression, and emotional problems. It can also be used very effectively to complement traditional Chinese medicine treatments.

How Is Reiki Therapy Done?

Reiki Therapy is offered through light, non-invasive touch with the therapist’s hands placed and held on a series of locations on the head and front and back of the torso. The placement of the hands should never be intrusive or inappropriate, nor should there be any pressure. In most cases, no direct contact is involved between the practitioner and you.

What Does Reiki Therapy Feel Like?

A Reiki Therapy session is a unique experience for everyone, but you may feel certain sensations when receiving Reiki. Common sensations are heat, tingling, pulsing and cold, just to name a few. Some people feel no sensation of any kind at all. Sensations, or the absence of it, simply relate to the person’s sensitivity to energy. Reiki flows regardless of whether you feel it or not.

What Are The Benefits Of Having A Reiki Treatment?

Unlike many modern day remedies, Reiki works directly on restoring the balance on all levels and works directly on the problem and condition instead of just masking or relieving symptoms. One can benefit greatly from Reiki as a complementary therapy, and some benefits of Reiki including those have been scientifically reviewed include:

  • Reduces Stress
  • Alleviates Anxiety & Depression
  • Strengthens Immunity
  • Enhances Emotional & Mental Clarity
  • Accelerates Healing
  • Complements Existing Treatments & Therapies

Are There Any Side Effects?

As Reiki is gentle, and non-invasive, it generally has no side effects and can be used alongside any other forms of treatment and on people with debilitating chronic and terminal conditions and it can provide relieve to some of the side-effects of strong conventional treatments such as chemotherapy and radiotherapy.
