Reiki is a Japanese hands-on healing modality formulated by Dr. Mikao Usui in Kyoto in the early 1920s.
Reiki, while developed in Japan, is the culmination of Dr. Usui's search for the answers to Qi (Chi or Ki). Qi is the energy of life itself. Think of it as Star Wars' the force. It is an energy that makes up all things in the universe. It flows through us and comprises us. When this energy flows freely in a balanced way within us, and we are in the flow of the universe around us, health abounds.
But when our energy is blocked or depleted, or we are disconnected from the universe, we can become ill.
Reiki works when the practitioner becomes a channel or a funnel for the energy of the universe to travel through him and into a client. This energy is then used to balance and align the chakras and meridians, to achieve optimum physical and emotional health and well-being.
The Chakras are a connection point between the emotions we create with our minds and our physical bodies. The chakras, while not physical in any real sense, are real nonetheless. They can be located by dousing, and anyone can be taught to find them by sensing their location and strength in a matter of minutes. Each of the seven chakras correllates to an emotional value, a mental state, a gland, an organ, and a physical body part or region. When one experiences an emotional state for a peroid of time, the chakra can become imbalanced and affect the physical parts of the body to which it is connected. Reiki allows a practitioner to add Qi or energy to each chakra, balancing them and strengthening them.
The meridians are highways on which the energy of the body travels. Each meridian is connected to an organ system and related to one of the five elements - earth, water, fire, metal and wood. By strengthening these highways with Reiki, we allow greater flow of life's energy and can improve health and well-being.
Reiki really must be experienced. It can feel differently for each client. Some feel warmth, tingling, wind, relaxation, calming, or just a sense of peace. Many clients sleep during the session.
