What is Reiki?
Reiki is a simple, natural and safe method of spiritual healing and self-improvement that everyone can use. It has been effective in helping virtually every known illness and malady and always creates a beneficial effect. It also works in conjunction with all other medical or therapeutic techniques to relieve side effects and promote recovery.
Reiki is a Japanese technique for stress reduction and relaxation that also promotes healing. It is administered by the "laying on hands" and is based on on the concept of life force energy that flows through us gives us life. If one's life force energy is low, then we are more likely to get sick or feel stress, and if it is high, we are more capable of being happy and healthy.
The word Reiki is made of two Japanese words - Rei which means "God's Wisdom or the Higher Power" and Ki which is "life force energy". So Reiki is actually "spiritually guided life force energy." A treatment feels like a deep warmth that flows through and around you. Reiki treats the whole person including body, emotions, mind and spirit creating many beneficial effects that include relaxation and feelings of peace, security and wellbeing. While some controversy surrounds Reiki because it is hard to prove its effectiveness through scientific means, many have reported miraculous results.
The medical world and the understanding of pathologies relies on scientific evidence so modalities such as Reiki are often met with doubt and scrutiny. However, there is evidence of Reiki being effectively used by nurses in the hospital setting with documented benefits.
