Reiki is a Japanese healing technique that balances the body's energy system, reducing stress & relieving physical and emotional health problems in a very gentle yet powerful way. It is administered by "laying on of hands" or hands-off (for those sensitive to touch) and is based on the idea that an unseen "life force energy" flows through us and is what causes us to be alive.
If one's "life force energy" is low, then we are more likely to get sick or feel stress, and if it is high, we are more capable of being happy and healthy.
Holistic in its nature, Reiki treats the body as a whole by addressing the root causes rather than just the physical symptoms.
The word Reiki is made of two Japanese words - Rei which means "God's Wisdom or the Higher Power" and Ki which is "life force energy". Reiki is actually "spiritually guided life force energy."
A treatment feels like a wonderful glowing radiance that flows through and around you. Reiki treats the whole person including body, emotions, mind and spirit creating many beneficial effects that include relaxation and feelings of peace, security and well-being. Many have reported miraculous results.
Animal Reiki reduces stress – relaxes nervous pets/animals, helps emotional issues, creates a place of peace & safety. Great for trauma – PTSD issues in rescues – lost & missing pets. Long distance healing is also done in the comfort of your home.
The difference between modern medicine and Reiki healing is that while modern medicine helps reduce or mask the symptoms of the disease, Reiki healing works on the root cause of the problem and restores the balance on all levels.
What is the importance of energetically balancing oneself aka Chakra Balancing?
The practice of Reiki helps your system balance itself. Balance is always a good thing, because your body can only self-heal when your nervous system is balanced. By encouraging your system toward balance, Reiki can help you in any situation, even when it isn’t the only help you need.
Balance means different things at different times. If you are tired, you’ll feel refreshed. If you are anxious, you’ll feel serene. If you are distressed, you’ll feel comforted.
Instead of feeling overwhelmed, you’ll discover a renewed clarity and purpose. And these subjective changes come with physical changes associated with deep relaxation, such as a slower heart rate and easier breathing.
The first session usually brings improvement, and the benefits grow with repeated sessions. In emergencies or during intensive care, patients often show benefit within a few minutes.
