Frequently Asked Questions
What is Reiki?
Reiki is an increasingly popular ancient holistic hands-on healing technique that treats everyday aches and pains, illnesses, disease and injuries. Reiki can be performed on oneself or another. Although very powerful healing tool, the concept is rather simple. There is energy that is all around us on earth and as human beings we can connect our internal energy to this “Universal” or Reiki energy. While this energy has many uses, it has been discovered to have incredible healing abilities. One of the many benefits of Reiki is that it treats the “whole” person including body, emotions, mind and spirit. Reiki is a simple, natural, and safe method of healing and self-improvement that everyone can use. Many have reported astounding results.
How Does Reiki Work?
We are all alive because there is a life force flowing through us. When this flow of life force is disrupted or blocked, we experience disease, sickness, mental/emotional stress, etc. Reiki heals by sending energy to an affected area to clear the energy pathways and allow the life force to flow in a healthy and natural way. This is not unlike the theory of acupuncture and other related health systems. In Reiki, this is done by placing ones hands on, or near, the affected area (either on oneself or on another). It really is that simple.
What Can Be Treated?
In its long history of use, Reiki has aided in healing virtually every known source of disease - emotional, mental, physical and spiritual. Reiki has helped even serious problems like multiple sclerosis, heart disease, fibromyalgia and cancer. It is also used on more common ailments such as headaches, migraines, colds, flu, and sore throats. As well, Reiki can improve the results of nearly all medical treatments by reducing negative side effects, shortening healing time, reducing or eliminating pain, and reducing stress.
Can Anyone Learn To Do Reiki?
Everyone is able to tap into the unlimited supply of “Universal” energy. Reiki’s use is not dependent on one's intellect or spiritual development and no prior healing experience is needed. It has been successfully taught to people of all ages and backgrounds. There are millions of people worldwide performing Reiki. The ability to use Reiki is not taught in the usual sense. A Reiki master teacher makes the connection between your internal energy to the universal energy. Once this happens (called an attunement), you will have Reiki ability for the rest of your life. It doesn't wear off and you can never lose it. For centuries, Reiki has been valued by Eastern cultures as a means to help relieve pain and balance the body’s natural energies.
Reiki is not a substitute for conventional medical treatment or diagnosis.
