A treatment feels like a wonderful glowing radiance that flows through and around you. Reiki treats the whole person including body, emotions, mind and spirit creating many beneficial effects that include relaxation and feelings of peace, security and wellbeing. Many have reported miraculous results. Reiki is a simple, natural and safe method of spiritual healing and self-improvement that everyone can use. It has been effective in helping virtually every known illness and malady and always creates a beneficial effect. It also works in conjunction with all other medical or therapeutic techniques to relieve side effects and promote recovery.
An amazingly simple technique to learn, the ability to use Reiki is not taught in the usual sense, but is transferred to the student during a Reiki class. This ability is passed on during an “attunement” given by a Reiki master and allows the student to tap into an unlimited supply of “life force energy” to improve one’s health and enhance the quality of life.
During a treatment you relax, fully clothed normally, but not necessarily, on a couch or seated while the healer holds his hands on you. A treatment can last an hour or longer depending on the treatment required. In the western world many practitioners use the standard hand positions and commonly a full treatment is given covering all the important organs of the body.
There is no pressure on the body making it ideal for treating all ages and conditions, sometimes hands are even held slightly away from the body if the patient is uncomfortable with touch. The energy flows wherever it is required all on its own. It can actually be felt as a warm sensation or tingling in the body. Receiving Reiki is a very relaxing and soothing experience for both the healer, who benefits from treating others as this healing energy moves through & heals them, & for the patient who gets a direct dose of the Reiki into their body.
Reiki is an effective healing method that can be used for many ailments like reducing stress, relieving pain, headaches, stomach upsets, back problems, asthma – respiratory problems, PMT, menstrual problems, sinus, anxiety and many more. (Please observe that Reiki should never be used instead of medical treatment, it should be used as a compliment and a way to become and remain healthy.)

Reiki is easy to learn & anyone can “learn” Reiki. The word learn is not quite right as most of us cannot just read about Reiki and then do it. The ability to use Reiki is normally given via an attunement or initiation. There are 3 levels of Reiki: Reiki 1 and 2 and the Master level. Once attuned Reiki is easy to use and your ability to use Reiki will never leave you! Reiki will enrich your life and give you happiness and health on all levels: Eastern medical philosophy has always emphasized the superiority of maintaining good health over curing illness.
Reiki is a preventive medicine par excellence. But it is even more: When practicing Reiki on yourself or others, you experience both its preventive and its curative functions at the same time. If you have a disease, Reiki will cure it, if not; Reiki will promote your health and longevity. This preventive cum curative quality of Reiki makes it a unique healing system. It is natural to be healthy. It is only when certain parts of our bodies fail to function naturally that sickness occurs. The causes may be from bacteria and viruses, organic (toxins) or psychosomatic. Bacteria and viruses are always present in our bodies, but they are kept in check (sometimes even exploited to do useful work for us) as long as our bodies function naturally. Toxins are continually clogging our organs, but as long as we function naturally, these toxins will be neutralized by the chemicals produced by our body.
Our brain is continually stressed, but again, if nature runs its course we will be adequately relieved after sleep and rest. The Eastern concept of health is also wider than that of the West. To be healthy is not just to be free from disease. A person cannot be called healthy if he/she is often restless, irritable or extremely forgetful, cannot concentrate or sleep soundly, and has no zest for work or play.
How does Reiki promote health? First, it frees us from disease; it prevents as well as cures illness. Then it helps us to grow emotionally, mentally and spiritually, giving us the wonderful benefits of health in its wider sense. The preventive and curative qualities of Reiki can be reduced to two simple principles: the cleansing of meridians and balancing of the chakras to achieve a harmonious energy flow. How does Reiki prevent or cure contagious diseases? When disease-causing micro-organisms attack certain parts of the body, reserve energy is channeled to meet these attacks, however when the meridians are blocked, then the flow of reserve energy is hindered, and illness results.
When using Reiki you cleanse the meridians, harmonizing energy levels and promote a smooth flow of reserve energy to the areas under attack, thus restoring the balance. Practicing Reiki increases our reserves of energy, thus preventing any possible future outbreak of illness.
