Reiki therapy is an alternative healing modality that was developed in 1922 by Mikao Usui, a Japanese Buddhist.
It is relaxing and reduces stress, which in and of itself promotes healing. But there’s more. Practitioners use “laying on hands,” mantras and blessings to clear the energy in the body and increase the flow of life force energy in order to clear the mental and emotional pollutants that interfere with life force energy and cause problems.
If your life force energy is high and its flow through the body is free and unrestricted, life flows smoothly for you. If it is low, or if you suffer from energy blockages, you may suffer from physical and psychological problems and unwanted life situations.
How Does Reiki Work?
Reiki stimulates energy (Reiki) to move in the body.
You already have energy in the body but it may be blocked and not flowing smoothly. During or after a treatment, you may feel the effects of energy being unblocked.
For a time, physical and psychological symptoms may worsen as the mind/body cleanses itself. This is normal and expected, so if it happens to you, just ride it out and know that the discomfort will pass and you’ll feel much better, soon. It’s important to support your body as best you can to help you move past the cleansing process.
