What is Reiki
The term Reiki is a form of healing technique which means a spiritually guided life force energy. Reiki is pure energy and is not attached to any philosophy or religion. Although it has been used for over 100 years, this healing technique was formally discovered by a man named Mikao Usui of Japan in 1922. It was brought to America in 1937 by a woman named Takata Sensei.
All of us have a central life force, an energy, that flows within our body. This life force channels within the physical body through pathways called chakras, meridians, and nadis. Reiki treatments balance this energy through the use of laying on of hands almost like a light touch massage. As stress is the number one factor of compromising the immune system, Reiki is used as a healing practice for stress reduction and relaxation.
Our body needs a certain energy level to be able to detoxify on a systematic basis. However, when our body is running on low energy levels due to poor diet, lack of sleep, environmental pressures, among other things, there may not be enough to detoxify the body. The toxins collect in certain areas: large joints, around inner organs, lymph system, head of the body. In Reiki, this is known as Byosen, accumulated toxins. When body, mind and spirit work well together, the body will eliminate the accumulated toxins on schedule. The application of Reiki helps facilitates this.
Reiki also works in conjunction with other types of medical and therapeutic techniques. Today it is used as a healing modality in over 800 hospitals in the U.S. The key is to allow the life force energy to flow through the body to feel balanced, at peace, and promote healing.
