Reiki is a Japanese
healing art that is gaining worldwide popularity. What makes Reiki unique is
that it incorporates elements of just about every other alternative healing
practice, such as spiritual healing, auras, crystals, chakra balancing,
meditation, aromatherapy, naturopathy, and homeopathy.
Reiki involves the
transfer of energy from practitioner to patient and claims to enhance the body's
natural ability to heal itself through the balancing of energy. Reiki utilizes
specific techniques for restoring and balancing the natural life force energy
within the body. It is a holistic, natural, hands-on energy healing system that
touches on all levels: body, mind, and spirit.

is all around us. It is derived from rei, meaning "free passage" or

Reiki energy has
several basic effects: it brings about deep relaxation, destroys perceived
energy blockages, tries to detoxify the system, provides new vitality in the
form of healing energy, and increases the vibrational frequency of the body.
The laying of hands
is used in Reiki therapy as in other spiritual healing. There is a difference
though. In spiritual healing, a person with a strong energy field places his or
her hands above a particular part of the recipient's body in order to release
energy into it. The healer, in most forms of energy work is the one who is
sending out the energy. In Reiki, however, the healer places the hands above and or on the
recipient. It is the recipient that draws the energy as needed. The individual
being healed has to take an active part in the healing process. The individual
takes responsibility for his or her healing.

the healing method was rediscovered by Dr. Mikao Usui in Japan and later
introduced into the western world by Hawayo Takata, an American from
Reiki—also called energy medicine—is an ancient hands-on
healing practice which harnesses what believers call the Universal Life
Force—the energy field that surrounds all beings, including humans.
A Reiki session is normally very relaxing, people have stated they feel very light almost like floating or they claim to be drawn downward towards the earth as if being grounded. Some people have an emotional reaction during the session (or a delayed one hours later) if this does occur let the emotion play out, if you try to control it you will engage that blockage again.
During a Reiki session you are dressed, normally laying on a table you can be covered with a blanket (some people get a little cool when having a session), Hands may be placed upon your body or not (normally depends on the client's wish) and the client may feel energy pass through them, a throbbing or a wave sensation, they may feel warmth or coolness in that area being worked. The energy moves and builds up, maintains, then slowly goes a way this is the indication for the practitioner to move to the next area Each person is unique in what they experience so no two sessions are the same.
