The Power of Reiki Healing
The Power of Reiki Healing
What is this mysterious healing Modality?
Reiki Healing is an expression of Japanese origin that means universal vital energy. It also gives the name to a technique discovered in the early 20th century by Mikao Usui. In it, hands are used to capture and transmit energy. This channeled energy promotes the harmonization and transformation of the human being and is able to cure him of diseases. So, Reiki is defined as both a name for the energy produced by a living body and a method of interacting with that energy.
A Reiki Healing practitioner is someone who has learned to work with and recharge this energy.
Eastern medical traditions have long understood what Western science has only recently been able to measure and begin to define: the living body generates an energy field that surrounds it. This energy field is affected by stress, lifestyle, and the environment. If the energy field is depleted faster than it can be naturally recharged, a person will feel tired and listless. If the field is depleted too far, a person is more susceptible to illness.
CHAKRAS AND VITAL ENERGY
The word chakra means "wheel." They are energy centers in a spiral shape with helixes rotating clockwise that are located inside our body. They are capable of energetically influencing our health and emotions. We have about 90,000 energy centers in our body.
The 7 chakras are located along our spine to the tip of our head. The chakras capture vital energy and distribute it throughout the body through the nervous system, vital organs, and endocrine glands.

THE BENEFITS OF REIKI
Reiki promotes several benefits. This complementary therapy can be applied in the prevention, treatment, and recovery of physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual ills.
When we go through a situation of tension, our body, among other things, releases the hormones cortisol and adrenaline.
These hormones are directly linked to stress. The state of prolonged stress can cause chronic anxiety or depression and even stomach ulcers or myocardial infarction.
Upon gaining a positive energy discharge from the reiki specialist, the patient tends to relax. Thus, the feeling of wear and tear, muscle tension, anxiety, and mood swings disappeared. With the body, mind, and spirit balanced, the immune system is strengthened. Thus, those who will undergo surgery are prepared for medical intervention. The rest are protected against any illness that may arise.

What is a Reiki Healing Session Like?
People seek healing modality sessions for a wide variety of reasons, from supplementing medical treatment to assisting in dealing with stress and emotional trauma. Many bodyworkers, nurses, and other healthcare practitioners routinely incorporate Reiki into their healing practices.
Reiki sessions are gentle, non-invasive, and are done with the clothes on. A Reiki practitioner will typically have you lie on a massage table and will gently place their hands on your body. Hand placement will vary depending on the needs of the individual and the areas being treated. Receiving Reiki is a deeply relaxing experience and leaves you feeling energized with a sense of balance and inner peace.
Reiki Healing can be applied to everyone: children, adults, and the elderly, female or male.
During sessions, patients are instructed to sit or lie down.
The Reiki Healing therapist places his hands-on specific points on the body.
Energization happens by touch or imposition.
Reiki can also be sent remotely. But, to receive it satisfactorily, the patient needs to have level one initiation in this technique.
Note: Reiki Healing is a supplemental healing therapy and is not a substitute for medical and/or psychological diagnosis and treatment.
