What Is Reiki?
Reiki is a treatment technique whereby the practitioner is acting as a conduit to universal healing energy. It originated with Dr. Mikao Usui, who wanted to find a way for individuals and practitioners to access the power of Kiko (Japanese Qi Gong) without needing years of practice to cultivate flow. If you have ever looked at the history of energy healing in Asia, you will note that many methods of treatment and energetic anatomy were revealed through observation and meditation. In seeking the answers to initiating flow for the non-initiated and non-practiced, Dr. Usui had visions of a series of Sanskrit symbols that could be used to access the universal energy of Qi (Ki). With this, Rei (Universal Life) Ki (Energy), was created as a healing modality.
Today Reiki is a form of healing recognized and utilized in private practice, hospice, and hospitals in the U.S.
What does Reiki help? Studies have shown differences, in pain, dementia, mood, and more.
What To Expect During Your Reiki Treatment:
During your reiki treatment, you will lie on a massage table fully clothed while the practitioner places his hands over the areas of pain and various parts of the body which help with whole body flow of energy. Depending on the needs of your treatment, you may be asked to turn over to so the practitioner may apply a direct treatment to the back side of the body. Please come hydrated, and for your own comfort, in loose comfortable clothing. You will be asked to discuss any pains or concerns with your practitioner before the treatment in order to determine the best approach and any need to accommodate the treatment posture. Communicate any discomforts to your practitioner in order to assist your ability to easily receive the treatment. Afterwards, you may feel strongly relaxed, relief of pain, clarity of mind and more.
