Reiki, pronounced Ray-Key is a Japanese word meaning universal life energy. It is a system of natural healing using the hands, which evolved in Japan latterly, though it has been accessed by many cultures since ancient times by various routes. Mikao Usui (Ido not use the term ‘doctor’ as Usui sensei never used it himself) was inspired to develop this healing system from ancient teachings, after many years of study and research. He spent the rest of his life practising and teaching Reiki.
Today Reiki continues to be taught in the tradition passed down from Master to student. Receiving a Reiki treatment is very simple and lasts normally 1hour 15 minutes, during which time the client relaxes on a couch, remaining fully dressed, having removed shoes and metal objects only. If the client is unable to lie down, a treatment can be given from a sitting position. The main concern is that the client is as comfortable as possible. The practitioner gently rests his/her hands over a sequence of positions on the whole body, starting at the head and finishing with the feet.
Most of the session will be focused around the head in the Usui tradition. Byosen Scanning will also be carried out to detect areas of the body needing specific focus.
I also employ Seichim, Sekhem and Raku Kei when I feel it is required. These are different ‘flavours’ of channeled energy, resulting in a wider ranging treatment than Reiki on its own. Clients often describe feeling heat or other sensations around the area where the practitioner has placed his/her hands during the treatment. They also frequently describe a ‘clearing of the head’ of all the ‘mental chatter’ and stress which for most of us, is the norm! Extreme relaxation is also usually reported. The benefits of treatment can be felt for up to a week or so, depending on what is being treated, and the individual. Treatments also seem to be cumulative in their effects and can be as intensive, in terms of frequency, as the client wishes, in agreement with the practitioner.
Reiki can be used for many ailments. Acute injuries can be helped to heal quickly, including sports injuries where physiotherapy is not ‘cutting the mustard,’ whilst chronic conditions may require several treatments.
It can be used to help modify undesirable behaviour and work on deep subconsciously rooted memories or events which have unwanted influences in daily life,ie. ‘issues.’
Reiki can help support those clients with terminal illness by helping to give a sense of calm and peace, whilst also working on the physical level.
The treatment works on the four levels of naturopathic healing which are the physical, mental, emotional and spiritual. Reiki flows to the areas of need, soothing pain and supporting the body’s natural ability to heal itself. It restores balance in one’s life and can be used alongside all forms of treatment both orthodox and complementary. The flow of energy is essentially a passive process, in that only the required amount and frequency of energy is transmitted. The practitioner will be aware when this state is reached, and can influence the strength and type of transfer.
You can only reliably receive Reiki from someone who has had all attunements passed on to them in person from a Master/Teacher.
A professional practitioner should also hold at least the 2nd degree (Level 2), and carry professional insurance.
