Reiki is an energy balancing system developing in Japan over 100 years ago. Reiki balances the body's energy field and energy centers (Chakras). Reiki is used to relieve stress and promote deep states of relaxation that can aid in the body's natural healing process by enhancing vitality and harmonizing the human energy field and flow of chi through the body. Reiki intends to put the body in its optimal state to promote its own healing. Reiki can thus help balance the spirit, receive pain and promote well being, directed to each person for their highest, most loving good.
Reiki is used as an alternative or complementary therapy. It can be effective in aiding the healing process when patients are undergoing chemotherapy or are recovering from illness, injuries or surgeries. Many hospitals, nursing homes and wellness centers offer Reiki to their patients. It is not, however, meant to take the place of medical care when a condition requires a visit to the doctor. Reiki practitioners do not diagnose conditions, nor do they prescribe medicine or perform medical treatment. It is recommended that you a see a licenses health care professional for any condition that you have.
Reiki possesses its own intelligence. It works differently for every person and every condition. Chronic conditions may require a series of sessions to experience relief. Reiki may or may not be effective for your particular situation. It is important to set aside expectations regarding the results of your Reiki session. Reducing stress and having a positive attitude will go a long way toward your healing. Reiki involves light, gentle hand placements on the body. Reiki energy can also be administered in the energy field instead of directly on the body During or after a session, you may feel physical sensations as well as emotional releases as energy flow is increased.
