What is Reiki?

Is this your first time hearing the word Reiki? Reiki is a Japanese healing modality that has become popular as a completmentary therapy. It could be your key to wellbeing. Here are some examples of Reiki as completmentray therapy: (a) Some university hospitals in USA use Reiki in combination with regular treatments. Sometimes lectures on Reiki for future doctors and nurses are avilalbe. It has also been used for military persons at U.S. military bases. (b) Insurance covers Reiki treatment in certain hospitals in UK. (c) In India, one can use a doctor (A.M.) designation in Reiki when qualified. (d) World famous 5 star and 6 star hotels offer Reiki treatment in their Spas and esthetic salons.

What does Reiki mean?

“Reiki” is a Japanese word. It means pure and sacred energy (or surge). It is an old Japanese word that refers to “energy source for life force”. “Reiki Ryoho” or simply “Reiki” is the traditional Japanese healing technique that uses Reiki energy. “Energy source for life force” (Reiki) cannot be seen, but it exists everywhere in our natural world. So Reiki is energy. But what does that mean? We are all surrounded by different kinds of energy. Electricity and gas is energy. Sunlight and ground heat is source of energy. What you eat turns into energy. Reiki is just one of such energy that exists in our universe. It is that simple. Now what we talk about is a method called “Usui Reiki”. The best thing about this method is “that anyone can learn to use Reiki after attunement and attending lectures to learn how to practice”. It may sound incredulous, but it is true. ANYONE can learn Reiki just like learning to ride a bike or drive or use a computer.

How is Reiki different from other energy modalities?

Reiki is the energy of the universe. And that is what is passed through and not someone's personal energy. When you receive a Reiki treatment you are receving the energy of the universe and notheing else.

What will I get out of Reiki?

There are two advantages when you take Reiki (available in abundance naturally) in to your body and learn to utilize it. 1) Reiki will help improve imbalances within your body when you pass Reiki through your palms to others and yourself. (This is Reiki Ryoho) 2) Through practiced passing of Reiki within yourself, you can elevate your energy level and be better grounded. (This is Traditional Japanese Reiki-ho) Reiki Ryoho, commonly known as Reiki healing or Reiki treatment has become synonymous with Reiki. It is known as energy healing modality from eastern medicinal approach. Reiki-ho on the other hand is known very little within Japan and outside of Japan. When Reiki travelled to the West after WW2 this part was forgotten. (Core concepts and principals of this part is known as the lost half.) Please note that Reiki is not a religion nor is it affiliated to any.
