Frequently Asked Questions on Reiki
What is Reiki?
(literal translation - Universal Energy), as laid down by Dr. Usui has a simple
set of procedures to follow, which were passed down to each of the Reiki Masters
who follow his teachings, together with
simple set of
ideals or precepts
for daily living.
It is important to note that the Reiki energy is not a mind power. It is spiritual in nature, and therefore cannot be directed or manipulated in any way. Reiki by-passes the symptom and goes to the cause of the problem to allow healing. Reiki works on the assumption that each of us knows more about what is necessary for our healing than anybody else. Thus Reiki is totally complementary to any other form of healing or medication being undertaken.
A Reiki session is approximately 60-90 minutes in length. Clients are treated fully clothed, sitting up in a chair or lying down on a massage table, whichever is more comfortable. During the session, the Reiki practitioner will gently rest her hands on (or slightly above) various parts of the body in patterns which include the head, neck, abdomen, arms, legs, back and feet. The body is touched lightly.
A sensation of warmth from the
practitioner's hands is common. A tingling feeling, deep relaxation, and/or a
peaceful calm are often reported by anyone receiving Reiki. Through a series of
hand positions, slightly on or above the body, practitioners are often able to
sense energy discord and can focus their attention to those areas. There is no
manipulation of the skin or muscle tissue. It is non-invasive and painless.
Reiki has been found to have a calming effect on the body. It can restore balance to the body. It supports the body's natural ability to heal itself. It is great for part of your stress management program. Check out a full list of additional benefits.
Throughout its lengthy history, Reiki has been used to help treat virtually every known illness and/or injury. As well, many individuals have used Reiki to help overcome unwanted habits, achieve personal goals, and alleviate stress. Children and animals are especially responsive to this non-invasive and loving energy. This self-help technique does not require any system of belief or thought to be activated and can be easily incorporated as a self-help method to balance our physical, mental, emotional and spiritual bodies.
Reiki channels are not using "their" energy per se, but are via Reiki, tapped into the universal supply and therefore cannot become depleted or run down. The energy enters at the crown chakra of the Reiki practitioner and passes through their arms and hands and into the body receiving the Reiki. The mind of the Reiki channel should remain neutral. Reiki brings the body into balance so it can heal itself and the person who receives Reiki is simply made better physically, mentally and spiritually.
How often can I receive Reiki?
Anyone who has a Level I, II, or III Reiki degree may give Reiki in-person; Level II and III individuals may also send Reiki remotely (distant healing). Only Reiki Masters may give attunements to others to allow them the capability to give Reiki.
