Reiki is an Eastern energy healing technique that works by laying a healer hands on or near a client’s body. Reiki is a two word term that when combined means ‘Univeral Life Energy’ in Japanese. Rei means spirit, gift, mystery or ghost. Ki means energy. Therefore, Reiki is the practice of channeling Ki or universal energy. In Pollynesia, Ki translates to Mana, in India, it means Prana, and in China, it is Chi or Qi.
Going back thousands of years and all over the world, practices have been developed to address energetic disturbances that go with dis-ease and illness in the spirit, mind, and body. Acupressure, Edina Acupuncture, Shiatsu, and Qigong are some examples of practices that affect the movement of energy in the body. Methods such as Medical Qi Gong, Pranic healing, and Reiki also restore harmony and balance to the body and its surrounding field of energy. Reiki is based on this universal and age-old comprehension of the complex interaction between one’s state of health and one’s personal energy system.
Reiki systematizes and arranges the energy in our energy system. This makes Reiki work on all aspects of one’s being: physical, mental, spiritual, and emotional. It can fix destroyed auras liberate the causes of chronic and acute conditions, facilitate the self-healing processes of the body, and cure mental, spiritual, and emotional problems. Reiki can likewise dispel underlying profound stress that can appear as mental and/or physical illness in the mind and body.
