What is Reiki?

I’ve Heard About Reiki. 

So, what is it?

If you too have been hearing about Reiki (ray-key) you’re not alone.  Reiki is an increasingly popular ancient hands-on healing technique that treats everyday aches and pains, illnesses and/or injuries. Reiki is easily learned and can be performed on oneself or another.

Reiki often referred to as Universal Energy. It is an unlimited supply of energy that is continually all around us and everything on the planet. When one is “tapped in” to Reiki, this energy can be use for healing and enhancing the quality of one’s life. To get tapped in is quite unique because the ability to do Reiki is not taught in the usual sense, but instead is transferred to the student by a Reiki master. 

The Reiki energy has been found to be beneficial in treating the whole person. It can be either powerful or gentle depending on the need, and it has aided in healing virtually every known illness and injury. For the physical body Reiki can work on serious problems like multiple sclerosis, heart disease, fibromyalgia, arthritis, and cancer.  However, it also treats common ailments such as migraine headaches, colds, flu, sore throats, and everyday aches and pains. 

For the emotional and mental part of our being, Reiki works on such concerns as anxiety, depression, lack of confidence, hyperactivity, confusion, negative programming, helping create optimism, etc. Reiki has a very calming effect and is often used for relaxation, stress reduction, and feelings of peace.

It can also work on other aspects of our being including self-empowerment, intuition, creativity and spiritual connection. It can enable recognition and clarity about your true path. You can attune to a very high frequency and magnify your intuitiveness.

It is a simple, natural, and safe method of healing and self-improvement that everyone can use. Many have reported miraculous results.

It is also extremely easy to do. It has been successfully taught to people of all ages and backgrounds. Millions of people worldwide are performing Reiki.

Reiki can improve the results of nearly all medical treatments by reducing negative side effects, shortening healing time (physical, mental or emotional healing), reducing or eliminating pain, and reducing stress.
