Healing therapies aren’t new to the world. People are resorting to different healing therapies for thousands of years, and while these practices are becoming extinct, some of them are still surviving due to their effectiveness.
One such healing therapy is Reiki. This is a Japanese healing technique that’s been passed on for hundreds of years.
Reiki is becoming a popular healing technique as more and more the public are receiving great benefits from receiving it.
What is Reiki?
Reiki is an ancient non-intrusive complementary therapy. A hands-on healing technique. Reiki enhances the body’s own innate ability to heal itself on all levels. It helps restore balance and harmony to the mind, body and spirit. The energy involved in Reiki healing is the universal energy that surrounds all life. Reiki is used throughout the world by people of all creeds and belief systems. Reiki can benefit everyone.
The two ways to experience Reiki energy are to have a Reiki treatment from a Reiki practitioner or to learn how to use it for yourself.
How does Reiki work?
We all have an energy field (aura) surrounding our physical body. As we go through life, we place demands on our energy field.
During a Reiki treatment this energy field can re-energise. Reiki restores the natural balance of the body, providing deep relaxation and bringing a sense of peace and well-being.
It is called universal life force energy because it draws upon the healing energy of the universe rather than the energy of the practitioner.
How Reiki manages to do this is still a mystery, but recent developments suggest that this happens because Reiki can calm our biofield.
The biofield is a medical term, and it refers to the vibrational energy that each of our bodies have. The presence of biofield hasn’t been proven yet, because we still lack advanced technology that can prove this. However, the healing traditions from different cultures are being carried out by targeting this vibrational layer for thousands of years, and the effectiveness of Reiki only proves the existence of it.

Reiki can be of great benefit for a broad range of conditions. It is used as a complement to conventional therapies.
Some people who have migraine, asthma, skin conditions, ulcers, orthopaedic injuries and arthritis have noted improvements in their health.
Reiki has also supported some people who have various forms of cancer and other types of serious health conditions.
The gentle Reiki energy is also effective in calming the mind and has helped many with anxiety and depression.
Reiki is a great support in helping people deal with normal day to day issues in a relaxed way.
People may find that after Reiki they cope better with life issues and their energy is not depleted along the way. People with low self-esteem and poor self-confidence levels have also noted remarkable differences following treatments. Reiki is something that pregnant women can use and can be a great support during child birth. Some maternity hospitals now offer Reiki as a complementary form of therapy.
What happens during a Reiki Treatment?
Reasons people have Reiki Treatments
- To increase their energy and vitality levels
- To improve health and well-being
- To reduce stress
- To help during times of change
- To be supported in times of bereavement
- To accelerate the healing process after surgery
- As a method of preventative health care and health maintenance
- To treat oneself to a deeply relaxing treatment
- To reduce Pain
- To increase confidence and self-esteem
A Reiki Treatment is a deeply relaxing non-intrusive treatment. Your Reiki Practitioner will complete a client consultation form with you and explain how Reiki works. The client always remains fully clothed during a treatment. The Reiki Practitioner follows a sequence of hand positions over energy points on the body called Chakras. The Practitioner channels universal life force energy to the Client. The Reiki Energy the client receives is not the Practitioner’s personal energy. The Reiki Practitioner has been trained in how to facilitate the flow of this energy to others during their Reiki Treatment.
Generally, clients can feel a deep sense of relaxation, heat, tingling, coolness and energy flowing during a Reiki Treatment. Reiki will flow to where your body needs it. Many people go into a deep relaxed state during the treatment. Usually a Reiki Treatment lasts one hour. Someone who has a chronic condition is usually advised to have a weekly Reiki Treatment for four to six weeks for the energy to build up in the system.
Treatments can then be reviewed by the client and practitioner. No two treatments are the same, as Reiki works on the physical, mental, emotional and spiritual levels.
People who want relief from an acute condition or an acute exacerbation of an existing condition may notice results quicker than a person presenting with a chronic condition. They may feel an improvement in their condition after just 2 treatments.It is highly recommended to have Reiki Treatments to maintain health when you are well. As Reiki helps to boost your immune system and reduce stress, regular Reiki Treatments are a great way to maintain your health. A Reiki Treatment every now and again is a lovely way of not just treating yourself, but being healthier.
As you can see, Reiki is very beneficial, but it needs to be done right to reap those benefits. This is it is highly recommended you visit a professional practitioner for a proper Reiki session.
What is Intuitive Healing?
The word Reiki comes from the Japanese words “Rei” and “Ki”. Here, Rei means “own intelligence”, and Ki means life energy. Reiki Energy Healing knows exactly where the recipient needs it. It will always flow in the direction that’s beneficial for the recipient.
Can I Do Reiki on Myself?
In First Degree Reiki – Reiki Level 1. You will be Attuned to Reiki and you will learn all the Hand Positions to Reiki Healing on yourself. I highly recommend Reiki Students do at least 15 minutes Reiki Self-Healing every day.
- Set aside some time for practicing Reiki. You don’t need more than 15 minutes in the beginning but try to maintain the schedule and perform the process every day.
- Find a quiet space in your home that’ll be comfortable for performing Self-Reiki. Play soft music to help you relax more quickly.
- Try to ensure that you’re the only person in the room while performing Reiki.
What are the Reiki Hand Positions?
The Reiki hand positions allow you to concentrate your Reiki energy on the chakra points so that the entire biofield can vibrate in the same frequency. It’s important to perform all the different hand signs so that all the chakra points of your body receive Reiki.Position 1:
Place your hands together in a praying position and place them in the middle of your chest. Don’t press the fingers tightly but place them gently on each other. Focus on your breathing and do this for two minutes.Position 2 – Crown Chakra
Place both of your hands on the top of your head. Don’t place them vertically but place them across your head so that they cover from your ears to the middle of your head. The tip of the fingers will lie at the middle of your head and they will touch each other.
This position will relax the scalp on your head, and you need to maintain this position for two minutes.Position 3 – Third Eye Chakra:
Place your Hands on your Third Eye Chakra which is in the middle of your forehead.Position 4 – Throat Chakra
Cup your hands very gently around your Throat Chakra.Position 5 – Heart Chakra
You Heart Chakra is in the centre of your chest.Position 6 – Solar Plexus
Place your Hands on your Solar Plexus Chakra which is just up your navel.Position 7 – Sacral Chakra
Place your Hands on your Sacral Chakra which is just below your naval.Position 8 – Root Chakra
Place your Hands over your Root Chakra which is just below the Sacral Chakra.(base of your Spine).
Is Reiki a Religion?
No, Reiki is not a religion. Reiki is just a healing technique, and it isn’t based on any faith. Dr Usui who founded Reiki wanted Reiki to be open to everyone. Your faith in Reiki and your religion can co-exist in harmony.
Is Reiki Good for You?
A lot of people have been asking whether Reiki is good for them or not. Reiki is mostly known for its ability to enable a deep sense of relaxation and for promoting healing. It’s seen that consecutive sessions of Reiki can help a person heal faster, and it can help even when other concurrent and mainstream medical approaches are failing.
However, patients who have received Reiki have reported that Reiki makes them feel better. Reiki is also known to have a great effect on treating depression and anxiety, as it can relax the mind.
Is Reiki Harmful?
Reiki is a non-invasive practice with no harmful side-effects. While not intended to replace any traditional medicine, it can be used to supplement a doctor-approved treatment plan to further lessen symptoms and promote greater wellbeing.
Do you require any equipment to practice Reiki?
Unlike other healing practices like acupressure and acupuncture, Reiki doesn’t require any equipment. A Reiki practitioner is capable of channeling the inner energy of a recipient using their hands only.
Can you lose Reiki?
The knowledge and skills learned for practicing Reiki are never lost. A person needs only three degrees for mastering Reiki, and the skills and effectiveness will stay with that person for the rest of his/her life.
Is Reiki a Religion?
Reiki doesn’t depend on any religion. It doesn’t matter what your religion or belief is when you’re receiving Reiki. As long as you seek relaxation and healing, it will benefit you.
What is the History of Reiki?
The history of Reiki is just as interesting as the techniques, and it is just as important to learn. In this section, we’ll discuss the history of Reiki in brief.
A gentleman by the name of Dr Mikao Usui introduced the healing art we call Reiki to Japan toward the end of the 18th century. He was not a medical doctor. To his students he was called Usui-Sensei, which means teacher. He held a great interest in medicine and healing techniques, and throughout his life, he learned tons of different techniques. His main goal was to find a healing technique that wouldn’t be bound by any religion or belief. This is how he came across Reiki, which is considered a universal healing technique.
While searching for a universal solution to healing, Dr Usui meditated, fasted, and prayed for 21 days on Mount Kurama.. On the 21st day, he was studying Sanskrit texts and came across certain ancient symbols that paved the way to Reiki.
After he had perfected the techniques of Reiki, he opened a small clinic in Kyoto where he simultaneously healed patients and spread the techniques of Reiki. Before his death, Mikao Usui taught the art of Reiki to Dr. Chujiro Hayashi who later set up his own Reiki clinic in Tokyo.
He is credited for improving Reiki further. He came up with hand positions that cover the entire body, and this makes the healing sessions much more comprehensive. It was at this time that Reiki started spreading across Japan. Dr. Hayashi taught some more Reiki masters who later set up their clinics.
In his time, he once healed a Japanese-American woman named Hawayo Takata. Mrs. Takata was skeptical about this technique at first, but she started believing in the power of Reiki when she started healing from cancer that required surgery.
Later on, she started learning Reiki herself, and she started healing after she had moved to the United States. This had spread Reiki across the world.
How long does a Reiki Session last?
There is no set of rules for how long a Reiki Session will last. It can last 15mins up to 90 minutes.
How to choose a Reiki Practitioner that is right for you?
Choosing a Reiki Practitioner that is right for you is very important. I highly recommend you visit a “Profession Reiki Practitioner” as you’ll be sure they have been properly trained. One thing you want to ensure is that you must be comfortable with the person from whom you’ll receive the therapy from. When looking for a practitioner, you must look for a person who’ll describe and explain the entire session to you first. A person who will walk you through the session will provide a much more fulfilling Reiki therapy, as you’ll know what to expect.
Many Reiki Practitioner work from their homes or from a holistic centre. Performing Reiki in a place that’s quiet and without any disturbance is highly recommended. A lot of practitioners prefer using soft music for cancelling the ambient noise.
I recommend reading their website and trust your instincts.
Is it necessary to remove clothing during a Reiki Session?
Reiki can pass through clothes and barriers, which is why you won’t have to remove your clothes while receiving Reiki.
While Reiki doesn’t require any equipment, some Practitioners can use chakra wands and crystals, as these are much more effective at interacting with the chakras in different ways.
How many levels are there to the Reiki Training?
There are three main levels of Reiki training. Anyone can learn Reiki, but they need to learn these three steps to master it. Let’s take a look at the three degrees of Reiki.
