What is Reiki?
Reiki is a Japanese method of energy healing that balances the physical, mental, emotional and spiritual energies of a being toward their highest good, allowing the body to cleanse and heal itself. The word Reiki comes from the Japanese word (Rei) which roughly translates to “Universal Life-Force" and (Ki) which means “Energy”.
As discussed by quantum physics, everything is made up of vibrational energy, including the human body. A Reiki treatment assists in balancing the energy field of the body to promote a sense of well-being.
Receiving Reiki can do absolutely no harm. It always works toward the highest good of the one receiving it. No belief is necessary for the treatment to be effective, however the more open one is to receiving it, the more their body will receive. The recipient is in complete control of how much of this "Universal Life-Force Energy" that they receive. The Reiki practitioner is simply the vessel through which the Reiki flows—like a straw. The recipient may draw as much or as little as they are comfortable.
Disclaimer: Reiki does not replace professional medical care. It is recommended you see a licensed physician or licensed health care professional for any physical or psychological illness you may have. Reiki practitioners and Master/Teachers can NOT diagnosis or prescribe anything. Reiki never interferes with the treatment of a licensed medical professional, but complements all healing modalities. No Reiki practitioner of any level diagnoses any illness unless he or she is a licensed professional medical provider.
