The use of alternative medicine is on the rise. People consult acupuncturists for their own health as well as for their pets and many hospitals are encouraging their nurses to become certified in Reiki energy healing. While science cannot explain exactly how Reiki works, it has undeniable benefits. What, exactly, is Reiki?
Reiki is an ancient healing art that was rediscovered in 1914 by a Japanese man named Dr. Usui. In 1938, an American woman from Hawaii became initiated to the Reiki tradition and brought it back to the United States. Today, there are many forms or branches of Reiki in the West. Traditional Reiki Masters identify as Usui Reiki, or Usui Shiki Ryoho Reiki Masters.
Reiki, like all energy healing, understands that human beings are multidimensional, with physical, mental, emotional, spiritual, and energetic aspects. In oriental medicine tradition, the energy that flows through all living things is called chi (translated from qi or ki). “Rei-ki” literally means “universal life energy.” When there is a lack or imbalance of the energetic life force, disease manifests. When chi flows freely, there is health. Reiki, like Tai Chi, yoga, meditation, and acupuncture, is simply a way of accessing this living energy force.
Usui Reiki is unique because it is one of the most powerful ways to connect with life energy for Good and Healing. Reiki works by addressing illness at its root – by sending healing energy to the blockage or imbalance. Reiki is not a religion. It is ethical and safe. It is for people from all backgrounds. Most important, Reiki can do no harm. Reiki is 100% safe and beneficial healing energy.
So, how can Reiki help you? On the physical level, Reiki can effectively treat everything from migraines to cancer. On mental and emotional levels, Reiki relieves chronic disease such as depression and anxiety. However, Reiki energy healing can do much more: Reiki is very effective at empowering self-esteem, healing relationships, and resolving financial crisis. With regular Reiki treatments, you move beyond symptomatic treatment of the manifestations your disease into true health.
If you wish, you can also learn to perform Reiki yourself. An Attunement allows you to directly connect to the energy without going to a Practitioner. By partnering with Reiki, you can bring health, joy, and success to all aspects of your life, your work, and your family!
