What is Reiki

Reiki is a form of energy healing which is holistic in how it brings balance to mind and body. The two ways to experience Reiki healing therapy would be to have a Reiki treatment from a Reiki practitioner or alternatively to learn how to do Reiki yourself by attending a Reiki course. The effectiveness of Reiki is gaining new respect within the wider medical community. Not only are highly reputable medical facilities throughout the U.S. offering patients Reiki healing , those facilities are analyzing the benefits of their programmes and are submitting them for review and compilation.

Reiki Training

The starting off point if you intend on learning Reiki is to attend a Reiki 1 course. At this level of Reiki training you learn all about Reiki. This level of Reiki training is usually held over two days.

Some of the items covered at a comprehensive Reiki 1 class should include:

  • The concept of energy healing discussed
  • The chakras, energy field and endocrine system outlined
  • The healing potentials of Reiki
  • About Reiki and how safe it is to use in all situations
  • Energetic initiation to Reiki
  • Illustration and practise of doing self Reiki treatments in class
  • Reiki and its many uses
  • About Reiki History
  • Showing the group how to do chair treatments
  • Showing the group how to do table treatments
  • Time for offering Reiki to each other in class

The whole idea after a Reiki 1 course is that you integrate what you learn by doing self Reiki treatments on an ongoing basis.

Those who use Reiki on themselves regularly report many benefits. These include a reduction in stress levels, increased energy levels, a greater enthusiasm for life, improvement in dietary habits and a sense of inner peace. You can also share Reiki with family and friends after doing a Reiki 1 course.

Reiki Healing Treatments

For those who wish to experience Reiki therapy but are not inclined to attend a Reiki course, a Reiki treatment would be the preferred option. A Reiki treatment is a very relaxing non invasive experience. It usually lasts one hour. You remain fully clothed and lie down on a massage table. The Reiki practitioner uses a sequence of Reiki positions over the body. People sometimes feel a variety of sensations as the energy flows through the body. These can include heat, tingling or a coolness. Most people find Reiki very relaxing and fall asleep during the treatment.
