What is Reiki? Reiki is a relaxing, powerful healing technique that was developed by Dr. Mikao Usui. Dr. Usui developed these powerful Japanese healing techniques in the late 1800s. Reiki (“RAY-kee”) is a Japanese word meaning “spiritually guided life force energy.”
Reiki is internationally recognized. In India, Reiki is called prana. In China, it is called Chi. Many call it God Force Energy, Healing Energy or Love Energy. Life Force Energy flows through everything that is alive; humans, plants and animals.
Reiki can be used alone or in conjunction with many forms of medical or therapeutic treatments, as a matter of fact it has been gaining so much popularity due to it’s effectiveness many veterinarian, medical and cancer treatment centers are now offering Reiki sessions to their patients. Reiki can found being practiced in Hospice, pre and post surgerical treatments, mental health clinics and chiropractic offices and the list goes on. I have been practicing it on domestic pets and wildlife for anxiety and injuries with positive results. Reiki works from a higher power and is only limited by the one who is recieving the treatment, this is why I feel that animals respond so well to Reiki, because animals are not skeptical or judgemental to the treatment and never overthink it.
During a Reiki treatment the trained practitioner places their hands on or above the recipient’s body usually starting at the head, holding the position until the energy starts to flow, the hand positions move over the body until all areas are complete. Reiki will always flow to the areas where it is needed most. Most people feel an immediate sense of relaxation, peace and relief from pain, some feel the effects a few hours or days later. Each person has a different experience with Reiki.
It is believed that when a person’s life force energy is low or blocked, their body is running on a lower vibration and they are more likely to experience pain or become ill. If it is running on a higher vibration and flowing smoothly through the body then the person is more resilient to pain, illness and disease. To most people this is known as living a “positive” or “negative” life. Reiki therapy helps balance the energy system of the body, by increasing the vibrational frequency. It is believed that when the life force energy (aka: chi) within the body is balanced it leads to increased relaxation, improved health, an overall feeling of well-being and happiness.
When choosing a Reiki practitioner be sure that they have recieved the Reiki attunements and certifications before allowing them to work on you, your body and energy. Many people ask me to practice on them or read their energy. Reiki is not a party game or something that you show an example of when out to dinner with friends or at gatherings, it is to be respected and used correctly at all times.
