The word Reiki is made of two Japanese words - “Rei” which means “universal spirit or the higher power” and “Ki” which means “life force energy”. Reiki (pronounced ray-kee), is classified as an alternative energy therapy and 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 they are more likely to get sick or feel stress, and if it is high, they are more capable of being happy and healthy. 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.
A scholar and Japanese Zen Buddhist named Mikao Usui is believed to have developed Reiki in 1922. He realized that the body could not be fully healed unless the spiritual or soul of the person being treated was also addressed. By drawing a number of Asian healing methods, such as those found in Tibetan Buddhist texts, Usui formed a Reiki organization and trained others in his technique.
A typical Reiki session can take between 30 and 90 minutes. The client is usually in sitting or lying position and fully clothed. According to Reiki theory, energy is thought to automatically go to the parts of the body where it’s most needed. The intention on the part of the Reiki practitioner is believed to help direct the flow of energy.
The Reiki practitioner may also use hand positions around the body to ensure that no parts of the body are neglected. These hand positions are usually palmed down with the fingers and thumbs extended and each position is held for two to five minutes. People may feel a deep sense of relaxation after a Reiki session. They sometimes report a sensation of warmth or cold, tingling, sleepiness, refreshment.
Although it’s considered to be its own therapy, Reiki can also be combined with other complementary and alternative therapies or with conventional medical treatments.
For the Reiki master or teacher course, you need to have completed Reiki Level 1 and 2.
