FAQ’s About Natural Healing, Reiki Sessions, Treatments and Healing Energy
Click here to see what Dr. Oz says about Reiki and its benefits
What is Reiki?
Reiki (pronounced “Ray-Key”) comes from a derivative of two words. One word is Rei, which means “universal” and Ki, which means “vital life force.” So Reiki is a healing technique where a practitioner can channel energy into the client and activate the natural healing processes — A Vital Life Force.
Will I Be Cured My First Session?
Very few pills, infusions, treatments, etc. can cure immediately. Reiki is the same way. Although you may feel much more relaxed, less anxious, peaceful and one or two of your symptoms may have gone away, you will not be cured. Reiki is a form of alternative medicine that should be used in conjunction with your other healthcare. NEVER stop any medications, even if you are feeling better, before seeing your doctor.
Is It Okay To Have Reiki If I Am A Christian?
To be clear, Reiki is not a religion or a cult; it is an alternative form of healing. If anything, Reiki follows the practice of Christianity by following the steps of Jesus and helping the sick. Reiki works with all forms of religion – or no religion at all.
What Happens During A Reiki Session?
In a standard treatment, Reiki energy flows from the practitioner’s hands into the client. The client is laying on a heated massage table but treatments can also be given while the client is seated or even standing. The client remains fully clothed. The practitioner places her/his hands on or near the client’s body in a series of sacred hand positions. These include positions around the head and shoulders, the stomach, and feet. Other, more specific positions may be used based on the clients needs. The whole treatment usually lasts between 45 and 60 minutes.
What Can You Expect During A Reiki Session?
What one experiences during a Reiki treatment varies somewhat from person to person. However, feelings of deep relaxation are usually felt by all. In addition, many feel a wonderful, glowing radiance that flows through and surrounds them. Once Reiki energy encourages one to let go of all tension, anxiety, fear or other negative feelings, a state of peace and well-being is experienced. Some drift off to sleep or report floating outside their bodies or have visions and other mystical experiences. At the end of the treatment, one feels refreshed with a more positive, balanced outlook.
What Can Be Treated With Reiki?
Reiki has had a positive affect on all forms of illness and negative conditions. We have worked on relatively minor things like head or stomach aches, colds, flu, tension and anxiety. In addition, we have seen serious illnesses like heart disease, cancer, leukemia, and other maladies respond well. The side effects of regular medical treatments have also been reduced or eliminated. This includes the negative effects of chemotherapy, post-operative pain and depression, as well as improving the healing rate and reducing the time needed to stay in the hospital. Reiki always helps and in some cases people have experienced complete healing, which have been confirmed by medical tests before and after the Reiki treatments. Stress reduction, with some improvement in ones physical and psychological condition are what most experience.
Reiki works very well in relieving depression and anxiety. Imagine beginning with an anxiety attack and arriving home to find yourself at perfect peace after a session!
Reiki works in conjunction with regular medical or psychological treatment. If one has a medical or psychological condition, it is recommended that one see a licensed health care professional in addition to receiving Reiki treatments. Reiki energy works in harmony with all other forms of healing, including drugs, surgery, psychological care or any other method of alternative care and will improve the results.
When Will Reiki Not Work?
With Reiki, one must have a conscious desire in order for Reiki to work. You need to say, “I want to change where I am; I want to be empowered and balanced so that I can grow and learn.”
Can You Heal My Dying Loved One?
The answer is two fold – yes and no. We cannot heal your loved one. We can, however, help by providing stress reduction, acceptance, and reduced pain.
Can You Help My Pet?
Yes. Reiki is a, “vital life force energy which flows through ALL things.” While we may be more intelligent than our pets, they have just as much energy flowing through them as we do. They are relaxed and calm afterwards.
