Reiki (pronounced ray-key) is a Japanese healing art used to balance the flow of universal life (Rei) energy (Ki) through the body. Reiki promotes the body’s natural relaxation response, releasing blocked energy and restoring balance. While receiving Reiki, you relax fully clothed on body work table or in a chair. Reiki practitioners use gentle, noninvasive touch to calm your nervous system.
Our bodies are moving energy
Our nervous system uses electric signals to communicate. Tight muscles, injury, illness, and stress can interrupt these lines of communication. Reiki gently gets the energy flowing again. Reiki has been clinically shown to promote the relaxation response in our nervous systems, reducing stress and promoting health. Reiki is becoming commonly used in hospitals and nursing homes.
Your hands are warm
What does Reiki feel like? Some people feel warmth from the practitioner’s hands, beyond typical body heat. Others feel tingling sensations. Some feel nothing physical, merely a sense of calm. Reiki can induce the alpha brain wave state – the sense of wakeful rest.
The best thing about Reiki? You can learn to do it yourself! Almost 100 years ago, Reiki’s founder, Dr. Usui, envisioned and taught Reiki as a home remedy. You can learn to tune into the subtle energy channels in your body to release pain and tension and promote healing. Reiki I training includes a specific Reiki treatment called an attunement to unblock your energy channels. You then learn how to use Reiki for yourself and others.
