What is Reiki?
Reiki is a form of spiritual healing dating back to 20th century Japan. Created by Buddhist Sensei Mikao Usui, Reiki is said to heal a person through the energy flowing from the palms of the practitioner. Reiki made its way to the US thanks to the work of Hawayo Takata, who was born in Hawaii from Japanese parents. Hawayo Takata tried Reiki in one of her visits to Japan, and eventually avoided three surgeries thanks to Reiki treatment. In 1937, she became the first outsider ever to receive a First Degree Reiki certification.
The name Reiki literally means `spiritual/soul energy’. Practitioners believe that Reiki can help unblock the emotional or spiritual blocks that cause illness. Rather than focusing on treating the symptoms of a disease, Reiki works on the causes. Through the use of universal life-energy Reiki can heal a person even if the practitioner does not know what is wrong.
During a Reiki session, a practitioner will ask you to lie down on a table after removing your shoes and jewellery. They then move their hands around your body, without actually touching you. During the process, the practitioner’s hand usually become very hot, a sign that energy is flowing through them. It is important to note that the energy received does not come from the practitioner themselves; but they are merely channelling the Universe’s energy. Some people who experience Reiki for the first time have an intense emotional reaction to it; this is considered normal.
Because Reiki works on energy, sometimes it takes several visits before a difference can be seen or felt. Also, the results tend to be subtle, and can vary from person to person. However, practitioners believe that Reiki works for everyone and any condition.
