Reiki is Universal Life-force Energy. ‘Rei’ means ‘Universal’ and Ki meaning ‘Life Force Energy’, flowing from all living beings. Reiki practitioners channel energy in a particular pattern to heal and harmonize. Reiki seeks to restore a body’s unbalanced energies such as having a lack of awareness, talking a lot, trust issues, to overwhelming sex life. Everything during a Reiki Session is done purely on an energetic level. Reiki Healing has several effects such as it heals emotional blockages in the system, relaxing the mind and the body, and detoxifying the organs.
During a Reiki Session, the practitioner places his/her hands right above the recipient’s body. The practitioner’s goal is to restore emotional blockages in the system and bring it into balance. Reiki treatments do not involve actual touching. The practitioner will always place her/her hands a few inches further from the recipient’s body and manipulates the energy field from there. During a Reiki treatment, the patient usually lies fully clothed on a padded table in a warm, comfortable room. For stress reduction, two to three sessions are satisfactory; however, long-term treatment may be recommended for chronic conditions. Due to its gentle nature, many people fall asleep during this soothing experience of healing.
The average time for a reiki session is held for at least 25 – 30mins for stressed patients. When invoked, the symbol is thought to allow the practitioner to send healing Reiki energy across time and space. It allows practitioners to clear blockages of any kind, usually emotional, from someone’s past i.e trauma from childhood, feeling of uncertainty, and not being able to make decisions. The Reiki Master performs reiki by sending healing energy to the recipient. A picture of the recipient from head to toe would be sufficient. It does not matter where the recipient is located – reiki energy healing can be sent anywhere.
