What is Reiki? *Reiki is a Japanese technique for stress reduction and relaxation that also promotes healing. It is administered by "laying on hands" and is based on the idea that an unseen "life force energy" flows through us and is what causes us to be alive. If one's "life force energy" is low, then we are more likely to get sick or feel stress, and if it is high, we are more capable of being happy and healthy. The word Reiki is made of two Japanese words - Rei which means "G'd's Wisdom or the Higher Power" and Ki which is "life force energy". So Reiki is actually "spiritually guided life force energy."
A treatment feels like a wonderful glowing radiance that flows through and around you. Reiki treats the whole person including body, emotions, mind and spirit creating many beneficial effects that include relaxation and feelings of peace, security and wellbeing. Many have reported miraculous results.
Reiki is a simple, natural and safe method of spiritual healing and self-improvement that everyone can use. It has been effective in helping virtually every known illness and malady and always creates a beneficial effect. It also works in conjunction with all other medical or therapeutic techniques to relieve side effects and promote recovery. While Reiki is spiritual in nature, it is not a religion. It has no dogma, and there is nothing you must believe in order to learn and use Reiki.
While Reiki is not a religion, it is still important to live and act in a way that promotes harmony with others. Mikao Usui, the founder of the Reiki system of natural healing, recommended that one practice certain simple ethical ideals to promote peace and harmony, which are nearly universal across all cultures *(thank you to The International Center for Reiki Training for this comprehensive explanation).
How do I prepare for Reiki? Come dressed comfortably, prepared to lay on a yoga mat on the ground with shoes off- socks may be left on. You may bring a pillow or neck pillow. Refrain from eating heavy meals and consuming caffeine or alcohol before coming for Reiki healing.
What will happen? The practitioner will position their hands over specific areas of your body, to "run healing energy" through you. You will feel relaxed and peaceful and may feel a warm sensation near to where the practitioner's hands are, or through your body. You may fall asleep during reiki healing and will feel very relaxed upon awakening.
How long does it take/last? A private session is usually 50 minutes to an hour. A group session will generally last an hour in total depending on how many people are in the group and how many reiki practitioners are present. Please note that regularly scheduled reiki healing circles are timed according to how many people are in attendance each time. The circle will last anywhere from 15 minutes to one hour. The effects of reiki healing can be felt immediately and many people feel a sense of wellness and calm for several days following the running of reiki energy.
