Reiki is an ancient Japanese technique that has been practiced for thousands of years. It’s now being rediscovered by many and is quickly becoming very popular. It offers a range of benefits, including stress reduction, improved energy levels and the release of blocked emotions. Furthermore, it can help improve your physical health and reduce symptoms from illness. This article will explain what Reiki healing is, how it works, and its benefits.


What is Reiki Healing?

Reiki is a Japanese method of natural healing that uses energy to treat physical, emotional and mental problems. The word ‘Reiki’ means ‘universal capable energy’. It is a type of ‘energy healing’. Reiki is a hands-on method of healing that uses the energy of life to cure the body, mind, and spirit. It is an ancient Japanese system of energy healing that was brought to the west by Dr. Usui over 100 years ago. It is an alternative to medical treatment and is sometimes used to cure ailments through the power of hands. Reiki is a system of natural healing that works with the natural flow of life energy called ‘ ki’. Ki is our life energy and when blocked in any part of the body, it can become illness or disease. When an individual is treated with hands of a Reiki healer, this ki is unblocked and healing can begin.


How Does Reiki Healing Work?

When someone receives Reiki treatment, the healer places their hands on the body, palms facing upwards. The healer sends energy into the body and channels it through their hands by moving them in a specific rhythm and pattern. This process creates a connection between Reiki healer and the person being treated which allows the healer to ‘see’ the problems inside the body (and sometimes outside of the body). This allows the healer to send the correct treatment. When Reiki is conducted correctly, a buzzing or tingling sensation is felt in the hands. Most people feel a sensation between their shoulder and wrist. Some people describe it as a warm feeling, others say it’s a buzzing or static sensation. The feeling will usually go away after a few seconds, but it can last for longer if the person is relaxed.


Benefits of Reiki Healing

There are many benefits of practicing Reiki. These include:

- Reduced levels of stress: Reiki lowers the levels of stress hormones in the body, which can help reduce anxiety and improve overall mood.

- Better sleep: Stress is one of the main causes of sleep disorders like insomnia, and Reiki can help improve sleep quality.

- Boosted energy levels and concentration: Higher energy levels are better for concentration, which is great for students and those working in professions that require precision.

- Better immune system: Reiki is a great immune system booster, which can be especially useful for people with suppressed immune systems.

- Improved digestion: Reiki improves digestion and is useful for anyone who has digestive disorders or issues.
