What is Reiki Energy Healing?
Reiki's origins date back thousands of years, to the Tibetan culture. The Reiki Usui System was developed in the 1800s by Dr. Mikao Usui, a Japanese educator. Reiki is a Japanese word, representing Universal Life Energy, which is the energy all around us. Rei means God's Wisdom or Higher Power, Ki means the Life Force Energy.
Reiki is not a religion, but it encompasses all belief systems. Reiki is used in many hospitals (1) and hospices in the
Scientists are running studies on Reiki and the relationship with the Human Energy Field(HEF), as well as the energy coming from other objects.
A Reiki treatment is usually between 45 minutes to 1 hour long. You are fully clothed, and can receive the Reiki session either while lying on a treatment table or sitting in a chair. The treatment is gentle and can feel like a warm and calming energy flowing through and around you. Shorter sessions are also available, after the initial treatment. [Usually, one treatment is all that is needed for a mild condition.] More treatments may be recommended, depending on your situation. Some people enjoy having bi-monthly or monthly Reiki 'tune-ups'.
The reiki healer is an instrument for the Reiki energy, through either light touch or non-touch (the reiki healer holds his or her hands above your body, sometimes laying them on an area). The reiki healer does not necessarily direct the Reiki energy, it will flow to the areas of the body where it is needed the most. Although, the Reiki healer's hands can be placed on or over a painful area, which can alleviate or even eliminate the pain during the session. For 24-72 hours after the treatment, the Reiki healing energy will continuously flow throughout the your body.After a Reiki treatment you should increase your water intake and rest for 12-24 hours afterwards. The extra hydration helps to flush the loosened toxins out of the body, and the rest encourages the body to start restoring its balance and energy.
