What is Reiki?
Reiki (pronounced 'Ray-key') is a Japanese term meaning 'Universal Life Force Energy'. Everything, including plants, animals and people contain this energy. Reiki uses 'hands-on' healing techniques that allow the channeling of this energy through the hands into a patient for health benefits.
An illness in the body is caused by slow moving or stuck energy. The body and energy system is designed absolutely perfect! It is flawless and capable of being in a state of wellness all the time. The goal of Reiki is to assist restoring energetic balance to the mind, body and spirit.
Reiki is a simple, natural and safe method of treatment and self-healing that everyone can benefit from. It also works safely in conjunction with all other medical or therapeutic techniques to relieve side effects and promote recovery. Reiki is a supportive healing tool for use as a complement to conventional medicine eg. chemotherapy, and is increasingly being offered in hospitals.
Reiki is not dependent on belief and will work whether you believe in it or not. While Reiki is not a religion, it is still important to live and act in a way that promotes harmony with others. Dr. Mikao Usui, the founder of the Usui Reiki Ryoho system of natural healing in the early 1900's, recommended that humans practice certain simple ethical ideals to promote peace and harmony, which are nearly universal across all cultures.
These ideals are called Reiki precepts and they are the teachings of Usui, the roots to what has become the system of Reiki.
What does a Reiki treatment cover?
A Reiki treatment covers and treat all the major Chakras of the body (Base, Sacral, Solar Plexus, Heart, Throat, Third Eye and Crown). The Chakras are connected both to the physical organs in our body and the different layers in the Aura. When the Chakras are out of balance or have energy blockages, the physical body is affected as a result.
Reiki works on all levels at the same time - the physical, emotional, mental and spiritual to achieve balance and harmony within. This is the basis of how Reiki works. In achieving balance, your body is able to heal. In turn, Reiki serves as an accelerator to your natural healing powers within.
The Science of Reiki
A good source for understanding a scientific viewpoint of Reiki, including distance healing, comes from an excellent article by Ann Linda Baldwin, Ph.d entitled Reiki, the Scientific Evidence.
Reiki is never to be used in place of standard medical care under a licensed physician.
Under no circumstances do we guarantee healing to occur.
