WHAT IS ENERGY HEALING?
Energy healing is one of the most profound and fundamental alternative therapies in the field of alternative medicine and holistic health. By promoting healthy changes in your energy field, you will not only feel better, but the effects naturally flow down to physical health. Most diseases/illnesses have a mental/emotional/spiritual or traumatic event root cause. This manifests itself in your energy field by causing energetic defects, blockages, and other restrictions of natural life force in your energy body. When this condition persists for some time, your physical body will start having symptoms and eventually a full blown illness due to the lack of positive energy in those sector(s) of the body. By correcting the energy flows and restoring the energy, life force, and spiritual connections to all parts of your body, you can naturally heal many conditions in a holistic way.
WHAT IS REIKI AND HOW DOES IT WORK?
Reiki (pronounced ray-key) is an ancient Japanese technique for stress reduction and relaxation that also promotes healing. Reiki is a form of natural, holistic, and complementary healing, which enhances the body's ability to heal itself. The work Reiki is made of two Japanese words: Rei which means "Gods Wisdom" or "The Higher Power" and Ki which is "life force energy." So Reiki is spiritually guided life force energy. Stress, trauma, and illness restrict the natural flow of energy through the body. By restoring this connection to the body, Reiki rejuvenates the body’s ability to relax and de-stress, and supports its ability to heal itself. It is a way to “tune-up” your energy to its healthiest state, which allows for healing to take place. Long term imbalances may require multiple treatments before your body reaches the level of deep relaxation necessary to bring your system back into balance. Self-improvement requires many commitments including changing negative thought patterns and reducing exposure to stressors. A Reiki treatment program must be followed to be truly effective, just as prescribed medication is only effective if taken as directed. To receive the full benefit of a Reiki treatment, relax during the session, center yourself, and calm your mind.
DOES REIKI TAKE THE PLACE OF MEDICAL OR PROFESSIONAL TREATMENT?
No. While Reiki is a professional treatment, it should never be seen as a substitute for licensed medical care. Reiki is a complementary therapy that can speed up your healing process as well as improve your physical and mental health in many cases. Reiki works in conjunction with regular medical and/or psychological treatment. If you have a medical or psychological condition, it is recommended you see a licensed health care professional in addition to receiving Reiki treatments. Reiki energy works in harmony with all other forms of healing, including drugs, surgery, psychological care, and any other method of alternative care.
See your provider(s) regularly and keep him/her informed of any change in your condition(s). Never stop taking prescriptions or treatments without consulting with your provider first. Keep your provider informed of all your complimentary health care plans and/or interests.
IS REIKI SAFE?
Yes, this ancient Japanese healing art is a familiar and accepted treatment in the west today. Reiki is a safe, gentle and non-invasive treatment and is not aligned with a specific religion. This holistic treatment promotes and stimulates the body’s own healing system, similar to when you have a cut on your finger and your body goes into action to heal the skin, or a broken bone.
Reiki is a gentle form of healing, since a practitioner does not manipulate, diagnose, nor prescribe medication. The energy that flows from a Reiki practitioner's hands always works towards the highest good of both the recipient and the practitioner. It is therefore completely safe and can be used to enhance any other medical or alternative therapy. There have been no reported cases of negative effects from Reiki
