The term “Reiki” comes from the Japanese words “rei,” meaning universal, and “ki,” which means vital life force energy that flows through all living things. Reiki is a very simple process, but usually produces quite profound effects. The main purpose of a Reiki treatment is not only to support the physical body, but also to promote a positive mind so you can experience more joy in life.
The great thing about Reiki is that one does not have to be ill to experience the benefits, with some practitioners describing it as acupuncture without the needles. It's a complementary health approach in which practitioners place their hands on or just above different areas of the body. It’s based on an Eastern medicine belief that living beings have energy fields that support their health and vitality.
Energy blocks impede innate flow of energy, potentially causing not only health problems, but also negative life circumstances like financial troubles or relationship problems, according to belief. Energy blocks of any living being can be treated, according to belief, which is why some practitioners also work on animals and plants.
In a typical session between practitioner and client you may briefly discuss any ailment or situation hoped to be healed or released. The session might begin with a brief meditation, then the practitioner would use various hand movements to lightly touch or hover over various parts of the client’s body, focusing specifically on the intent for healing.
Wonderful Benefits Of Reiki
Some come to Reiki to help with their energy levels, managing the stress of daily life or when transitions are happening. Others will come to develop themselves spiritually and experience a greater sense of meaning in life and maintain harmony so they can respond to challenges differently.
After a treatment most people feel calm, relaxed, energetic, productive and have a clear-mind. With many who experience Reiki realise that balancing their systems can help them to cope better with a wide range of health conditions, including stress, anxiety, depression, chronic pain and infertility to mention a few.
Assists In Cleansing From Toxins & Supports Immune System
Many spend far to must time in stress-reactive fight/flight phase that it becomes our ‘norm’ and our bodies literally forget how to return to balance. Reiki reminds our bodies how to shift into parasympathetic nervous system (rest/digest) self-healing mode.
Rest/digest doesn’t mean you have to stop being active and productive or ‘do nothing’. It allows you to sleep better and digest better which is important to maintaining health and vitality. The more you are in this space, the more you can be active and productive without being stressed, exhausted or burntout.
Dissolves Energy Blocks & Promotes Balance Between Mind, Body & Spirit
Regular Reiki treatments can bring about a calmer and more peaceful state of being, in which a person is better able to cope with everyday stress. This mental balance also enhances learning, memory and mental clarity.
Reiki can assist in healing mental/emotional wounds and can help alleviate mood swings, fear, frustration and even anger. Reiki can also strengthen and heal personal relationships, as Reiki enhances your capability to love, it can open you up to the people around you and help your relationships grow.
Creates Deep Relaxation & Helps Release Stress & Tension
What many people enjoy about a Reiki treatment is it allows time to themselves where they aren’t ‘doing’ but just ‘being’. It provides a space where you can be more aware of what is going on inside your body and mind. To learn to listen to your own body and make wise decisions regarding your well being from this place. Being more present means you are in your body, which helps you to access even more that inner knowing and wisdom that we all have!
Reiki healing quickly returns you to your natural state, or at least gets your body moving in the right direction, that means your breathing, heart rate and blood pressure improve. Breathing deeper and easier is one of the first things to happen during a self-practice or treatment received from someone else. When we breath better, our minds naturally settle.
As your respiration deepens your body moves into parasympathetic nervous system (PNS) dominance i.e. the rest/digest phase. Your body was made to function primarily in the rest/digest phase rather than the more commonly experienced fight/flight phase.
Helps Relieve Pain & Supports Physical Healing
On the outside looking in, a Reiki treatment might appear to be merely a sequence of hand placements, it works to restore balance on the deepest possible level. It encourages your system to improve your body’s vital functions (breathing, digesting and sleeping,) so your physical systems function optimally. On the physical level, Reiki can help to relieve pain from migraine, arthritis, sciatica, symptoms of asthma, chronic fatigue, menopausal symptoms and insomnia.
Helps Spiritual Growth & Emotional Cleansing
You do not need to be into spirituality to enjoy the benefits of reiki. Yet, for many they receive reiki treatments to support themselves through their self healing journey i.e. spiritual growth / personal development.
Reiki addresses the whole person, rather than targeting individual symptoms. It can create profound, often subtle shifts from deep within your own being. What does that look like? Guidance about what to do around difficult situations can come more easily. Or it may inspire a change in attitude or belief about your situation. Suddenly, you see your condition from a fresh perspective and are able to deal with it in a more positive way. Or it might direct you to the right kind of action needed which is guided from within.
