The word Reiki (Ray Key) is Japanese, meaning "Universal Life Energy" It is defined as being that power which acts and lives in all created matter. We are all born with this energy it connects us to all living things and keeps us alive. When we are connected to the "whole", our energy is flowing and we feel alive, vibrant and healthy. As soon as we allow our energy to be drained or blocked by physical, mental or emotional issues we become ill. Reiki helps us to become reconnected on a physical, emotional, mental, and or spiritual level.
Today, stress is a common experience in daily life. 90-95% of all illnesses are stress related. We need to learn to replenish our energy in order to keep stress levels to a minimum. If you suffer from stress you may react with physical symptoms, such as headaches, stomachaches, frequent colds, pains and digestive disorders. These symptoms are the expression of excessive negative stress, accompanied by an imbalance of the energy system. To relieve these symptoms your energy needs to be restored.
Reiki can balance the energies in the body, helping you to let go and relax, thereby reducing stress. At the same time, it promotes the development of positive reactions to stressful situation. In other words, Reiki not only treats the symptoms, but also the causes can be healed.
Reiki helps a person to sustain physical health by strengthening the immune system. It loosens blocked energy and helps cleanse our body of toxins. Reiki energy helps many conditions, both acute and chronic and always contributes towards healing.
Reiki is a simple and natural healing method. It is both gentle and powerful, and brings wholeness to the giver, as well as to the receiver. Reiki relaxes the body and uses hand positions over the endocrine organs which supply hormones necessary to our everyday functions of our body. Stressed bodies send mixed signals to our cells. Reiki resets our hormones so that our body can work the way it is suppose to and send correct signals thereby balancing our bodies. One hour of Reiki is equivalent to 3-4 hours of very deep sleep.
Reiki has a relaxing, calming effect on the nervous system and works to balance uneven emotions. Reiki energy balances and harmonizes, and is very useful in cases of shock (physical and emotional) and after accidents. Reiki is excellent for children, adults, as well as pets.
