When you feel any sort of pain, your immediate reaction is to grab or hold the area you are hurting with your hands and with the simple touch of our hand, we feel relief. This is called Reiki. In a natural way, without realizing it, we are applying the essence of Reiki. By touching part of the body, to transmit energy to end the pain or to decrease it with your hands, by yourself you are preforming a Japanese technique called Reiki.
Reiki, meaning ‘Universal Energy' in Japanese, consists of using your hands as a channel to transfer energy to others or even yourself. In doing so, your hands act as a powerful source of vibration, to heal physical illness or emotions.
The human being is “All Energy,” an affirmation that may seem esoteric but shares a handful of aspects with Quantum Physics. Reiki asserts that when the energy is blocked, for any reason or circumstance, this causes an illness. The laying of hands in the cystic area, where energy has been plugged, serves to dissolve the 'knot' that prevents the energy flow and thus restore balance to the body.
This type of therapy gains more followers each day. The people who practice it vow as to how amazing it works and how it has changed their lives.
What one experiences during a Reiki treatment varies somewhat from person to person. However, feelings of deep relaxation are usually felt by all. In addition, many feel a wonderful glowing radiance that flows through and surrounds them. As the Reiki energy encourages one to let go of all tension, anxiety, fear or other negative feelings a state of peace and well-being is experienced. Some drift off to sleep or report floating outside their bodies or have visions and other mystical experiences. At the end of the treatment, one feels refreshed with a more positive, balanced outlook.
