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.
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.
