Reiki (pronounced ray-key) was discovered by Dr. Midao Usui of Japan in the early 1900’s. Reiki is a practice that consists of laying on hands, or working in the clients energy field or aura. It is very effective for relaxation and stress reduction and also promotes healing. When you are relaxed your conscious mind or ego mind relaxes making it much easier to transmit energy that promotes your health and well being. The reiki practitioner is a conduit for the energy, almost like turning on a radio, we channel the energy to you.
Rei (ray) means higher knowledge or spiritual consciousness as used in Reiki. Ki (key) also known as Chi, is life energy. It is the spiritual consciousness called Rei that guides the life energy Ki. Think of Reiki as spiritually guided life energy. The reiki practitioner channels this Reiki – spiritually guided energy, for you and because it is spiritually guided the energy knows right where to go. The practitioner does not have to direct the energy, although they may.
Your Reiki practitioner will talk with you first to assess what areas you might want to work on, then they will scan your body to find any blocked areas they perceive. Often the practitioner will find areas you aren’t even aware of that need specific work. Sometimes one area of your body will compensate for another where you have pain or limited movement. Many times a client will state they have pain in their right hip and the practitioner will find that the left hip is blocked or limited. This is a case of the left hip compensating for the pain in the right hip and taking on more work. The practitioner will feel or see the energy block and specifically send Reiki to this area. Good Reiki practitioners are also intuitive and “know” where to direct the energy. The Reiki energy will also work to clear any negative thoughts and feelings that are blocking your natural flow of Ki- life energy and heal those as well. You may feel different sensations as the healing energy works or you may feel nothing at all.
