The word “Reiki” refers to mysterious atmosphere, miraculous sign and is derived from the Japanese word “rei” which means universal, and “ki,” which means life. It is a type of energy healing. According to professional practitioners, energy in the body can stagnate where emotional pain or physical injury is present. With time, the energy blockages lead to illnesses.
Energy medicine aids the flow of energy and gets similarly rid of blocks to acupressure or acupuncture. Reiki practitioners have faith that improving the flow of energy all around the body enables quick relaxation, relieving of pain, rapid healing, and reduction of symptoms of ailments.
What takes place in a Reiki session?
Reiki treatment is performed in a private and peaceful setting. However, you can get the treatment from any place. During a Reiki session, a client sits on a comfortable seat or lies horizontally on a table with their clothes on. The Reiki expert will then place their hands applying minimal pressure on specific points of their client’s head, torso, and limbs for 3-10 minutes.
If the client has a particular injury such as burns, the reiki expert holds their hands slightly above the wound for painless Reiki healing and energy transfer.
