Reiki is a type of energy healing. Energy (Chi or Ki) can stagnate in the body where there has been physical injury or even emotional pain. In time, these energy blocks can cause illness.
Energy medicine aims to help the flow of energy and remove blocks in a similar way to acupuncture or acupressure. Reiki practitioners channel Reiki to enable the flow of energy around the body. This can enable relaxation, relieve pain, speed healing, and reduce other symptoms of illness and more.
Typically Reiki treatment is given in a peaceful, private setting. However, the treatment can take place anywhere. During a session, the client will sit in a comfortable chair or lie on a table, fully clothed.
The practitioner will then place their hands lightly on or over specific areas of the client’s bod. They will typically keep their hands in these positions for several minutes. If there is a particular injury, the practitioner will hold their hands just above it. While the practitioner holds their hands lightly on or over the body, an energy transfer takes place. They will hold each hand position until they sense that the energy has stopped flowing.
Some techniques of Reiki:
centering, clearing, beaming, extracting harmful energies, infusing
smoothing and raking the aura
Another of the benefits of Reiki healing is distance healing, where Reiki is sent over several miles. Many practitioners will use crystals to assist with the energy vibrations.
The length and number of sessions will vary, depending on what a client wishes to accomplish. Some clients prefer to have a series of sessions to work on a particular issue.
