Reveling in Reiki

Reiki is an ancient healing practice that helps with a variety of physical and emotional issues. Reiki is most often referred to as a hands-on treatment where the practitioner places their hands directly above your body and transfers Reiki energy to promote healing. To practice Reiki the practitioner must complete a learning and attunement process performed by someone who has been attuned to the highest level of Reiki, known as a Reiki Master.

Reiki healing is non-invasive therapy with no known side effects. It is not intended to replace traditional treatments prescribed by your healthcare provider, but Reiki does work in conjunction with medical and therapeutic techniques. Reiki compliments other types of medical and therapeutic treatments and increases the efficacy of these treatments for healing.

Whether you want Reiki healing for balancing energy, emotional healing, pain relief, or to spiritually develop yourself, Reiki's advantages are limitless and not specific to any particular disease or condition. Reiki has been known to help people suffering with:

Chronic pain

Chrohn's Disease and other digestive issues

Stress related illnesses

Insomnia and restlessness


Anxiety and depression


Heart Disease

Neurodegenerative disorders

Again, it is imperative that Reiki never replaces traditional medical treatments by a healthcare provider. However, those living with health issues should try Reiki alongside their medical treatments. The gentleness of Reiki therapy has a soothing effect on recipients who become overwhelmed with fear and stress from invasive medical treatments.

Reiki is not exactly a once and done cure-all treatment. Depending on the level of your condition it may take several sessions to be pain-free or completely symptom free. Reiki is all about the overall well-being; body, mind, and soul. Everything will be revealed in due time. Know that everyone experiences Reiki differently and you will need to be patient with your healing process.

After a Reiki treatment you may experience a cleansing process, either an emotional or body cleanse. An emotional cleanse is a release of suppressed emotions that formed as blockages in your system. Emotional release manifests itself as mood swings; you may be crying one minute and feeling completely calm the next. You may not understand why you're feeling emotional, but it's your body's way of releasing the blocks that were freed during your Reiki treatment. A body cleanse is also common after a Reiki treatment. Toxins that were stored in the body for a prolonged period of time will be released during this cleansing process. While the release is a good thing, you may experience fatigue, headaches, body aches and chills, much like that of a common cold or flu. As the body works to continue expelling the toxins, be sure to drink plenty of clear liquids, and let your body rest. These symptoms should last only a couple days.

People who receive Reiki treatments have their own unique requirements or reasons for doing so, but the final outcome is almost always the same: they feel more centered, less uncomfortable, and have a stronger sense of well-being. Receiving Reiki or studying and incorporating it into one's daily life is a personal decision. It has advantages in either case.
