What is Reiki?
Alternative medicine includes energy medicine, energy healing and healing touch which are different names for similar complementary and alternative practices. Many of these therapies are Eastern in origin and predate traditional Western medicine. Eastern medicine directly addresses the root cause of the illness or condition and naturally facilitates the alleviation of symptoms. Western medicine attempts to eliminate symptoms of illness and affliction primarily through invasive procedures and prescribing pharmaceutical drugs and protocols. Uniting the two approaches into globalized holistic healthcare creates a balanced partnership to achieve optimal results for humans and animals.
It is commonly known that everything and everyone is made of energy vibrating at a specific frequency. When the flow of life force energy in our bodies' is unbalanced or blocked, “Dis-Ease” may manifest in humans and animals. “Dis-Ease” or “lack of ease” is the bodies’ response to the disturbance on one or more levels; physical, emotional, mental and/or spiritual.
Of all the spiritual practices and energy healing arts, Reiki is one of the most powerful, transformative, well-known and widely practiced. The term "Reiki" consists of two Japanese words, “Rei” which means higher power, universal wisdom and “Ki”, which is the universal life force energy flowing in all living beings. This energy is also known as “Chi” in China and “Prana” in India.
The Usui System of Natural Healing (Usui Reiki Ryoho), was developed in Japan by Mikao Usui nearly 100 years ago. Reiki is a gentle, non-invasive, energy healing art through which the practitioner delivers a pure infusion of universal life force energy to the client. This provides deep relaxation, balances the flow of the client's life force energy, and increases the body's natural self-healing ability. Reiki is beneficial to maintaining overall wellness when enjoyed regularly as part of a comprehensive self-care routine. Treatments are especially valuable when used to treat a specific health issue, illness, injury, surgery, personal concern or life situation. Reiki sessions bring comfort, restore equilibrium and aid recovery.
