The word 'Reiki' is of Japanese origin which means 'life
force energy'. It is pronounced as 'ray-key'. It means 'Rei' -
universal and 'ki' - life force energy. The 'ki' or life force
energy is known in the eastern world by the names of
'prana', 'mana', 'chi' etc. It is a holistic approach towards
healing as it transcends all levels of one's being like - the
physical, mental, spiritual and emotional.
The life force flows through our body via energy pathways
and provides nourishment to all the cells, tissues and
organs of the body. When this flow gets obstructed, the
body organs parts function at lesser level. The organs stop
functioning at their optimum levels. This life force is a direct consequence of our negative thoughts and emotions. These
negative thoughts and emotions get attached to our energy field and cause obstruction in its flow. As a result, there is
body-mind imbalance and illness. This imbalance can be due to many factors in our lives like emotional trauma, high stress
lifestyle, negative thoughts like fear, worry, anger, doubt, depression, anxiety, suppressed emotions etc.
True health is the result of fine blend of different aspects of our existence. For good health, our entire being should be in
harmony and balance and it is not just about the absence of disease. It all begins with the want to be healthy. We must
have the strong wish to be and remain healthy, and Reiki does exactly that. It allows us to become a complete whole and is
not limited to physical healing. Reiki empowers you and allows you to be in control of your life through good health and
Reiki is helpful in all kinds of health problems including back problems, sports injuries and any other serious illness. It also
works wonders for healing oneself off stress, depression, weight loss or gain and a number of emotional disorders. So, it is
a simple but powerful way to enhance the vibrations of your energy and helps you during emotional transition. It does not
involve any invasive treatment and never causes harms to anybody.
It combines very well with other health and medical therapies. In fact, it is being increasingly used together with modern
therapies like allopathy, and is springing up great results for patients. Apart, it can be used with other therapies like
Ayurved and Homeopathy to work wonders. Reiki is concerned with any religion and can be practiced independent of any
belief system and it simply involves channelizing of energy by the practitioner through hands.
In Reiki, there is no need for diagnosis as Reiki does it on its own. A practitioner or healer only has to streamline positive
energy to heal the sufferer. He or she is only a medium for the energy to flow through to the patient's body. It is only about
empowering or strengthening the patient to heal himself or herself. It is not an alternative to medical treatment.
