Reiki is the use of energy to heal various areas of the body. Reiki, Mac Med Spa, MassachusettsIt is a powerful method to reducing stress and creating a deep sense of peace throughout the body. The idea of Reiki is that all things on Earth are composed of energy. In our day and age, human bodies have the tendency to create and hold a lot of negative energy in various parts of the body. Oftentimes, this negative energy that we hold in our body directly corresponds with illness, stress, and pain. With the use of Reiki, a master will remove all of the blocked energy that can cause ailment.
The article shown below from The Reiki Association explains the definition of Reiki in-depth and where it comes from.
Reiki (pronounced Ray-key) is a Japanese word meaning Universal Life Energy, an energy which is all around us.
Reiki is the name given to a system of natural healing which evolved in Japan from the experience and dedication of Dr Mikao Usui (d. 1926). Fired by a burning question, Dr Usui was inspired to develop this healing system from ancient teachings after many years of study, research and meditation. He spent the rest of his life practising and teaching Reiki. Today Reiki continues to be taught by Reiki Masters who have trained in the tradition passed down from Master to student. There is no belief system attached to Reiki so anyone can receive or learn to give a Reiki treatment, the only prerequisite is the desire to be healed.
A REIKI TREATMENT
The method of receiving a Reiki treatment from a practitioner is a very simple process. The recipient simply lies on a couch and relaxes. If they are unable to lie down the treatment can be given in a sitting position, the main thing is for the recipient to be as comfortable as possible. There is no need to remove any clothing as Reiki will pass through anything, even plaster casts. The practitioner gently places their hands non-intrusively in a sequence of positions which cover the whole body. The whole person is treated rather than specific symptoms. A full treatment usually takes 1 to 1Â½ hours with each position held for several minutes.
WHICH CONDITIONS CAN REIKI HELP?
It is possible to heal at any level of being: physical, mental, emotional or spiritual. Acute injuries can be helped to heal very quickly but more chronic illness takes longer. In some cases such as terminal illness, there is not enough time for the progress of the disease to be reversed. However, in such cases there is usually great benefit and enhancement of the quality of life giving a sense of peace and acceptance during the time remaining. Reiki healing can be given anywhere at any time as no special equipment is needed. The practitioner is a channel which the energy is drawn through by the need or imbalance in the recipient. Neither person has to use any effort of will or concentration during this process.
As running water smoothes the jagged edges of a rock until it is small enough to roll away, Reiki flows to the areas of need, soothing pain and supporting the body’s natural ability to heal itself. Reiki restores balance in one’s life. Reiki supports all forms of treatment both orthodox and complementary. Reiki is a surreal method of unwinding and releasing negative energy from the body. If you are the type of person who is constantly running from A to B, wound-up and perpetually stressed, this is the energy healing therapy for you. After you experience a Reiki session, energy centers in your body will be harmonious. This allows for clearer and calmer thinking.
