Reiki is becoming increasingly popular with the medical community. A research study was done in a hospital in Hartford, Connecticut and found that Reiki improved patient sleep by 86 percent, reduced pain by 78 percent, reduced nausea by 80 percent and reduced anxiety during pregnancy by 94 percent. In addition nurses have reported that Reiki helps patients heal faster with less pain, reduces stress and improves mental attitude, improves appetite, and reduces the negative side effects of chemotherapy, radiation and other medical procedures.
What Is A Session Like?
A Reiki treatment is conducted through a series of carefully orchestrated touch patterns. The client lies down on a standard massage table (fully clothed) and, beginning at the head, the hands are placed in different positions as the practitioner works down toward the feet. The client then turns over and the process is repeated. The hands are held in each position (which closely align with the chakras) for three to five minutes. A full treatment takes about an hour. The amount of energy transferred depends on the client's needs and willingness to use it. The touch is very gentle with little or no pressure applied. This is not a massage technique, but more of a "laying on of hands". Reiki is not related to any specific religious beliefs or dogma, but is purely a channeling of the energy of the Universe. It is up to the person being treated whether or not they accept the energy being given, as free will is always involved in the healing process.
Letter from client:
Thanks so much for the great Reiki treatment yesterday. You were right, I did go through some adjustment time once I got home. It felt really strange - all I could do was sit and pretty much stare at nothing for most of the evening. Couldn't sleep, but refused to get out of that chair. The remarkable thing was that I was completely free of pain from a chronic back condition and even got to sleep last night without any pain meds - the first time in months. Wow! The rest of me feels very much more at ease as well. I might have to see you again some time in the future.
What is Reiki?
Reaching our greatest potential! Something we all would like to achieve. Unfortunately there are things in our lives that block or hinder us from achieving it. I'm here to help you with that or any other type of healing you may need. As a Reiki Master, I provide natural healing utilizing the Usui System of Reiki Natural Healing. It's an ancient healing art that brings healing on 3 levels: physical, emotional and spiritual.
Many cultures since ancient times had an awareness that an unseen energy flows through all living things and directly affects the quality of a person's health...this has been part of their wisdom. This life force energy has many names; qi in China, ki in Japan and prana in India. It has also been called orgone energy and scientist refer to it as biofield energy. Reiki is a technique that increases a persons supply of life energy. Reiki has no ties to any religions, cults or specific groups of people....it is the all - it just is.
What Are The Benefits?
Reiki energy allows muscles to relax and increases blood flow to treated areas, which in turn quickens the healing process. Practitioners and clients report help with stress, headaches, insomnia, upset stomach, sprains and other minor conditions. Occasionally, miraculous results are reported. Reiki also promotes psychological healing, including release of anger, fear, worry, sadness and other unhealthy feelings and replaces them with self-worth, confidence and tranquility
