What is Reiki?
Reiki is an energetic healing art with its roots in ancient Japan. The word Reiki comes from the Japanese word Rei (meaning Universal Life) and Ki (meaning energy). Together Reiki literally means Universal Life Energy.
Reiki is not affiliated with any religious practice or system - it is simply the Life Force Energy (God or Universal energy) that flows through all things. There are many scientific methods used today that can measure the levels of this energy field, one of the more well-known ones being Kirlian photography.
Disclaimer - Reiki is not meant to diagnose or treat any condition or to replace traditional medical care. It should be used in conjunction with, and as a compliment to, your health care provider’s suggestions for you.
How does Reiki Work?
A Reiki practitioner is specially trained and attuned to receive and channel these healing energies and focus them to help balance the energy within the recipient, whether it be an adult, a child or baby, an animal or pet, a tree or a plant, a situation or problem one is going through, or even electronics that are not working properly. Reiki energy helps to balance the energies within the recipient to facilitate their energies flowing clearly and smoothly, providing the optimum environment to facilitate healing and balance.
All things are made up of energy, even dense things such as the physical body, a beloved pet, a rock, a tree, or the computer or phone that you are reading this from. When there is an imbalance, weakness or a block in energy flow, dysfunction or disease can occur. Reiki helps balance the energies within the person or item to provide the most favorable conditions for healing so that correct function can take place.
Reiki works on the physical level, as well as the emotional and mental levels, which (according to body/mind principles) is where all disease, imbalance, and illness begins. By working with all three levels, you’re addressing the root causes of the dysfunction along with the resulting physical ailment. This approach results in a more long-lasting and complete healing.
It may take only one session to clear a physical issue, or it may take several sessions. Everybody’s bodies and situations are all very different. We have seen what would be considered serious physical imbalances shift completely in one session while other more mild imbalances take months of Reiki balancing. There is really no set result - it varies by individual. A person’s “body/mind” is in charge and will use the Reiki energy as it best sees fit for the person’s highest and best good. The emotional and mental shifts happen first, which can happen rather quickly, depending on the person. The physical body, because it is more dense, can take a while longer to “catch up” and integrate the energetic changes made on the mental and emotional levels.
Reiki is a wonderful, safe and effective healing modality to use in all situations, including fertility and trying to conceive, during pregnancy, labor and birth, postpartum recovery and healing, postpartum depression, breastmilk production or any breast-related issues. This is an area of specialty for Pam. Reiki is also helpful for those in the final stages of life, helping facilitate an easier and more peaceful transition.
Research has shown that in addition to deep relaxation and stress-reduction, there is a reduction in muscle tension and pain, accelerated wound healing, and a greater sense of overall health and well-being. It’s useful during illness, after injuries, and pre and post-op. The ways in which Reiki are helpful are limitless.
Reiki can be used by itself, or as a compliment to traditional and holistic medical approaches.
