Imagine a quiet, peaceful room. Maybe the only sound present is pleasant sounds over the stereo. You’re laying down on a table, completely relaxed as a trained professional lightly lays hands over different spots on your body. You experience a surge of healthy energy flowing through your body as the massage therapist is with you. You leave feeling refreshed, reenergized, lighter and happier. You just experienced Reiki and everything wonderful that comes with this type of healing.
What exactly is Reiki?
Originating within the 1800s in Japan by Mikao Usui, Reiki is a practice that uses life energy to heal different parts of the body. Reiki can be roughly translated from Japanese to mean “spiritually guided life force energy.”
The Japanese believe that if your “life energy” is low, then you are more likely to feel stressed or get sick and receive diseases. However on the flip side, if your life energy is experiencing higher levels then you’re more likely to thrive in life – experiencing less illness and more happiness in your day-to-day life.
How does Reiki work?
You don’t have to have spiritual knowledge to be able to practice Reiki, it is not a religious practice of any kind, moreover, it’s a “spiritual experience.” The energy to practice Reiki can be transferred from a Reiki master to anyone who attends a class.
If you choose to have Reiki performed on your body, you will be asked to lie down on a table fully clothed and your Reiki therapist will lightly “lay hands” over different areas of your body to transfer energy in order to heal. During the massage, your Reiki master’s hands may feel warm and tingly and they will remove their hands once they feel like an adequate amount of energy has been transferred. Most of the time it takes about 3-5 minutes for energy to transfer. Most Reiki sessions last anywhere from 15 to 90 minutes.
