How Reiki Can Benefit Your Overall Health

Reiki is a simple, safe and natural method of spiritual healing and self-improvement that everyone can use. This energy healing modality was developed in Japan by Mikao Usi. The term derived from the Japanese words rei, meaning "universal," and ki, which refers to the vital life force energy that flows through all living things. 

Because reiki promotes relaxation, reduces stress and anxiety and aids the body in healing naturally through gentle or no touch it is now practiced all over the world, including in hospitals and hospice to complement other forms of health treatments. 

Reiki has been known to help people suffering from autoimmune diseases, digestive problems, chronic pain, depression and other stress-related illnesses.

How does reiki work?

Reiki practitioners act as a conduit between you and the source of universal life force energy.  That healing energy flows through the practitioner's hands and connects with your energy.  The patient's energy determines where the healing is needed. 

What does reiki feel like?

 All energy healing feels like sensations such as heat, pulsing, or tingling or something more specific to your body.  It is not uncommon for patients to feel emotional during a reiki session or any healing session. Should this happen it is perfectly normal and safe to let those emotions out.  All energy healing helps to release blocked or stagnant energy. 

Reiki can be done in-person or at a distance. The healing is all the same. It is recommended to have at least four consecutive sessions to see/feel results.
