The awareness that an unseen energy flows through all living things and directly affects the quality of a person’s health has been part of the wisdom of many cultures since ancient times. This life energy goes by many names: qi in China, ki in Japan, and prana in India. The ancient Hawaiiians called it ti or ki. It has also been called or gone energy and √©lan vital, and science refers to it as biofield energy. Reiki is a Japanese word formed from two other words – Rei meaning universal and Ki meaning energy = universal energy.
When your life energy is low, it is more difficult to deal with stress; you may not sleep well, and you’re more susceptible to illness. When your life energy is strong, you feel strong, can deal more easily with stress, and are less likely to get sick. Reiki is a Japanese relaxation and healing technique that helps to stimulate the body’s natural healing ability thus increasing a person’s supply of energy.
In a Reiki session, the Reiki is administered through the hands of the Reiki practioner with the client lying fully clothed on a massage table. A session usually lasts between 45 minutes to an hour and a half and shorter sessions are also possible. The Reiki practioner places his or her hands at locations around the head and shoulders, the abdomen and on the legs and feet. Tissue is not manipulated. The practioner’s hands are simply held at at each location, lightly touching or slightly away from the body. Reiki energy flows from the practioner’s hands and into the client’s body and energy field. A Reiki session can feel like a wonderful glowing radiance that surrounds and fills the client and includes feelings of relaxation, peace and well-being that also promote healing.
Sometimes after a Reiki session, the client can feel sluggish and maybe not so good. This can be a sign the body is naturally clearing out toxins. This feeling will pass. Drinking water and resting can ease the cleansing process.
