Many years ago while browsing in a metaphysical bookstore, I saw a sign that read, “Reiki Treatments available” After talking at length with the Reiki Master, I decided to book a session that day.
During my Reiki session, I felt a subtle pulsing of energy radiating throughout my body that gave rise to a feeling of peace, calmness and ultimately a feeling of complete relaxation. My body was pain-free. This feeling lasted for a few days; I was hooked and decided to become a practitioner of Reiki.
Reiki is a gentle, non-invasive healing art from Tibet which helps open up the flow of energy within the body and clears away stagnant energy caused by physical illness or emotional pain. This is done by a laying-on-of-hands in a specific hand sequence in which there is a transference of vital life force energy, or qi, from the giver to the receiver. However, this can also be done remotely through Distance Reiki because this energy transcends time and space. (See the Hermetic Law of Similarities which states that our bodies are composed of energy which is interconnected and therefore, part of a larger whole). Reiki is holistic and complementary to Western Medicine and other alternative healing modalities. It is also safe for pregnant women and babies.
Reiki is beneficial because this transference of energy helps build and strengthen the clients own qi and accelerates the body's own natural healing ability. In addition, there are numerous other health benefits such as:
