What is Reiki?

Reiki With Cary

Reiki, pronounced (ray-key), is a Japanese technique which facilitates stress reduction and the natural ability of the body to heal. It was discovered in the early 1900′s by Dr. Mikao Usui. Reiki is given by “laying of hands”. Techniques such as this have been practiced for thousands of years.

How does Reiki heal?

Reiki is an intelligent energy which intuitively knows the areas of the body needing to be healed. It will automatically flow to areas where imbalance or suffering is occurring.

Life energy or “ki” is flowing through us, thus keeping us alive. Ki flows through the physical body via pathways called chakras, meridians, and nadis. Ki also flows around using a field of energy called the aura.

When ki is free and balanced, we experience health. When ki is disrupted, we experience disease.

Reiki clears, straightens and heals the energy pathways so that healthy ki can flow in a natural way. Ki is responsive to thoughts and feelings. It increases with our positive and optimistic thoughts, thus causing us to feel better. When ki is disrupted and diminished as we experience negative thoughts, we do not feel as well.

What can Reiki do for you?

Reiki replenishes life’s vitality. It can treat causes and symptoms of disease. It can clear away toxic and stale energies. Reiki serves as a stress reliever and as a calming force. It boosts the immune system while it compliments other modalities. Reiki works to bring about positive changes- it can not cause you any harm – ever.

What does a reiki session feel like?

Reiki works similarly to a thermostat that regulates your body’s energies. fluctuations in ki energy within us may be felt as any one of these sensations: heat or coolness, numbness, electrical sparks or sleepiness. Reiki energies can soothe and calm any pent-up emotional tensions and stress.
