What Is a Reiki Therapist

What Is a Reiki Therapist? This is a common question for those seeking more information about Reiki energy healing.

Reiki is often described as energy healing therapy. Energy healing therapies are based on the belief that if there are disturbances in the energy fields in and around the body it can result in illness, depression and low self esteem. It is believed that improving the flow and balance of energy can improve health and well being within the body.

For a Reiki Therapist or sometimes referred to as a Reiki Practitioner to practice they must be trained and attuned by a Certified Master Teacher level Reiki Therapist. Reiki, is typically learned in three or four levels or degrees. Training for each level typically takes one to three days depending on the level being learned.

Each level involves an “attunement” by a Certified Reiki Therapist. An attunement involves the placement of energetic Reiki symbols through a sequence of meditation and movements to the crown, palms, heart and third eye of the student to prepare the student’s body to channel Reiki energy.

“We don’t consider ourselves healers, because the body is it’s own healer. Reiki just facilitates the body’s own ability to heal itself.

Reiki is based on the idea that energy is transmitted through the Reiki therapist from a universal energy source to the client to raise or improve the flow and vibration of the client’s life-force energy. The Reiki Therapist may also remove negative energy from the client by acting as a conduit for this energy.

I always include a Chakra clearing with my sessions. I believe that when negative energy gets stuck in our energy centers it can lower our vibrational energy which in turn can create patterns that keep us stuck and cause us to repeat the same actions over and over. Clearing out the Chakra energy centers can raise up your vibrational energy by removing stagnant energies and emotional blockages that you are holding you back from living a healthier, more fulfilling and positive life.
