What is Reiki?

Reiki: An Energy Modality Greatly Helping Healing, Physically and Mentally

Reiki is one of my favorite modalities, I’ve been practicing Reiki since 2006 and it has greatly changed my life for the better. I initially learned Reiki to help myself get over a very stressful time in my life and it helped me so much that I decided to learn more about it and go on to teach others how to do it. Teaching others about Reiki has been one of my greatest joys for well over a decade now. I love mentoring students and helping clients through physical and emotional stresses. It is so exciting to see the sparkle come back to someone’s eyes when they feel better on all levels.

Reiki is an energy healing modality that has gained significant recognition in recent years for its ability to promote physical and mental well-being. With its origins rooted in ancient Japanese practices, Reiki has become a popular alternative therapy for individuals seeking balance and harmony in their lives. In this article we’ll explore the principles of Reiki, its benefits for both physical and mental health, and how it can be incorporated into your wellness routine.

Understanding Reiki

Reiki, which translates to “universal life force energy,” is based on the belief that there is a life force energy that flows within and around us. Practitioners of Reiki, known as Reiki healers, act as channels for this energy, directing it to promote healing and relaxation. By utilizing gentle touch or by hovering their hands slightly above the body, Reiki healers aim to remove energy blockages and restore the natural flow of energy.

Reiki has been found to provide numerous physical benefits for individuals seeking to improve their overall health and well-being. Some of these benefits include:

1. Pain Management: Reiki has shown promising results in reducing pain levels associated with various conditions, such as arthritis, migraines, and chronic pain.

2. Improved Immune System: Regular Reiki sessions have been linked to strengthening the immune system, making individuals more resistant to illnesses and diseases.

3. Accelerated Healing: Reiki can enhance the body’s natural healing abilities, promoting faster recovery from injuries, surgeries, and other physical ailments.
