What Is Reiki?
Reiki is a spiritual practice developed in 1922 by Japanese Buddhist Mikao Usui, which has since been adapted by various teachers of varying traditions. It uses a technique commonly called palm healing or hands-on-healing. It involves the transmission of vital Chi through the hands. On a therapeutic level practitioners use Reiki with great success to strengthen the body after or during a severe illness, but also to treat anxiety disorders, depression or stress.
It is reported that the recipient often feels warmth or tingling in the area being treated, even when a non-touching approach is being used. A state of deep relaxation, combined with a general feeling of well-being, is usually the most noticeable immediate effect of the treatment, although emotional releases can also occur.
In a typical whole-body Reiki treatment, the Reiki practitioner instructs the recipient to lie down, usually on a massage table, and relax. Loose, comfortable clothing is usually worn during the treatment. The practitioner might take a few moments to enter a calm or meditative state of mind and mentally prepare for the treatment, which is usually carried out without any unnecessary talking.
The treatment proceeds with the practitioner placing the hands on the recipient in various positions. However, practitioners may use a non-touching technique, where the hands are held a few centimetres away from the recipient’s body for some or all of the positions. The hands are usually kept in a position for three to five minutes before moving to the next position.
The whole treatment lasts anywhere from 45 to 90 minutes.
Reiki is also a path of inner growth which helps in day to day life and different stages of life. Reiki can be combined with all kinds of therapies and medicine, as it enhances and improves the outcomes.
