The most current form of Reiki, was developed by Mikao Usui in 1922. The word “Reiki” means “mysterious atmosphere, miraculous sign.” It comes from the Japanese words “rei,” meaning universal, and “ki,” meaning life energy.
Reiki is a type of complementary therapy relating to energy healing. According to practitioners, energy can stagnate in the body where there has been physical injury or even emotional pain. In time, these energy blocks can cause illness.
Energy medicine aims to help the flow of energy and remove blocks in a similar way to acupuncture. Reiki practitioners believe that improving the flow of energy around the body can enable relaxation, relieve pain, speed healing, and reduce other symptoms of illness.
Usually, Reiki treatment is done in a peaceful, private setting (however, the treatment can take place anywhere). During a session, the client will sit in a comfortable chair or lie on a table.
The practitioner will place light hands-on specific areas where the main centers of forces and energy are located, also called Chakras.
While the practitioner holds their hands lightly over the Chakras, an energy transfer takes place.
There is no predetermined amount because it depends on the conditions of each person.
While some situations only require one session, others may require many and over time.
