Have you ever heard of or tried Reiki? Derived from the Japanese words "rei," meaning "universal," and "ki," meaning "life," Reiki means "mysterious atmosphere, miraculous sign." Having been around for thousands of years, it is also commonly known as "palm healing," or "hands-on healing," and is a type of energy healing.
Energy healing is a form of treatment that targets the energy fields that are located around the body. For instance, when you suffer a physical injury or emotional pain, energy can stay inside the body. Over time, these energy blocks can lead to illness.
Therefore, Reiki practitioners restore balance to the body by removing these blockages, getting the energy to flow once again similar to what is seen in acupuncture or acupressure. Through this process, the body can finally relax, feel less pain, increase its healing speed, and ease other symptoms of illness, too.
For best results, Reiki is performed in a peaceful setting and can be done just about anywhere. The patient can choose to sit in a chair or lie on a table, and can have other preferences as well, such as the incorporation of background music or not. The practitioner will place their hands lightly on or hover them above places of injury or pain, such as bruises, sores, or burns. During these moments, the transfer of energy occurs. Only when the practitioner has sensed that all of the energy has stopped flowing will they finally remove their hands.
With several techniques available and with sessions possibly lasting between 15 and 90 minutes, Reiki offers its patients plenty of health benefits. Some physical health benefits include treating heart disease, chronic pain, fatigue, and infertility. Other benefits, specifically concerning mental health and wellness, are relieving stress, anxiety, and depression. No matter what you may need to heal--if you even need healing, Reiki is still an exciting and satisfying experience everyone should try at least once in their lifetime!
