THE HEALING ART OF REIKI

About Reiki
 

Sometimes massage of the muscles is not what is needed or is even contraindicated, as in uncontrolled high blood pressure or fever, Reiki can be very helpful in these situations.

A complete Reiki treatment uses a very light touch and can be given without touching the body.  This makes the treatment a highly effective therapy for people with conditions where touch is uncomfortable.  People who are very ill with cancer, who are undergoing chemotherapy or radiation therapy, burn victims and hospice patients are some categories where touch may be uncomfortable to receive.  

A full Reiki treatment can be given with the client fully clothed and therefore the client need not undress, or it can be combined with massage.  

So what is Reiki and how does it work?
 

To answer that question, consider what makes the difference between a "body" that is alive and a "body" without life?  In the moment you breath your last breath, the "body" is the physical structure that is still present, tangible and visible even in the moment after your last breath.

The "prana" or "energy" of the body has left with the last breath.  That is the obvious difference.  But the "energy" or "breath" cannot be seen leaving ... the "life force" energy of the body is invisible.

When the body is alive it has life force flowing through it.  The life force cannot be manipulated in the same way we manipulate the physical structure of the muscles as we do in massage. 

Therefore a very light touch or hands that hover over the body are all that are required when working with the energy body.


Reiki. Reiki (pronounced RAY-key) is a simple but powerful Japanese technique for stress reduction and relaxation that promotes healing. The word Reiki comes from two Japanese words – Rei and Ki.

The general definition of the word “Rei” is universal. But there are many levels of meaning in the Japanese language, and the meaning of the Japanese character for “Rei” can also be interpreted to mean higher knowledge or spiritual consciousness, or the wisdom that comes from God and is all-knowing.

This Divine wisdom understands each person completely and knows the cause of all health problems and how to heal them.

“Ki” is life energy, or the vital life force. Similar terms exist in other cultures. In Chinese it is called Chi, in Sanskrit it is known as Prana, in Hawaiian it is Ti or Ki. This is the energy that animates all living things. When something is alive, it has life energy circulating in and around it; when it dies, the life energy departs.

When our life energy is low, or its flow is restricted, we are more prone to illness. When it is high, we are less likely to get sick.

Ki is also the primary energy of our emotions, thoughts, and spiritual existence.

The Chinese have studied Chi for thousands of years. Ki is used by martial artists in their training and mental development. It is used in meditative breathing exercises. Ki is the non-physical energy used by all healers.

In the practice of Reiki it is the God-consciousness (Rei) that guides the life energy (Ki).

 Simply put, Reiki is life energy guided by a Higher Power. It always knows just what a person needs; it is always helpful.

The practitioner of Reiki is the channel through which God’s grace shines through to bring healing.

In the eastern medical model, it raises the vibratory level in and around the physical body, clearing away negative energy, and straightening and healing the energy pathways, thus allowing healthy Ki to flow unobstructed. 


In Western terms, it is a deeply relaxing therapy that enables the body to do what it is masterfully designed to do: heal itself.

Doctors in the U.S. are finding that with Reiki treatments added as alternative therapy in hospitals, patients have generally improved results. The negative side effects of chemotherapy and surgery are reduced, healing time is shortened, pain is reduced or eliminated, stress is relieved. It has been regularly noted that patients receiving Reiki are ready to leave the hospital earlier than those who don’t.

Reiki is also used in conjunction with psychotherapy to improve the healing of emotional trauma and other issues.

While Reiki is spiritual in nature, it is not a religion. It has no dogma, and there is nothing you must believe in order to learn, use, or receive Reiki.
