Reiki is a holistic healing practice that originated in Japan and is based on the belief in a universal life force energy. While the exact mechanism of how Reiki works is not scientifically understood or validated, it can be explained from a perspective that combines spiritual, energetic, and physiological aspects. Here's an explanation of how Reiki is commonly understood:

  1. Universal Life Force Energy:  According to Reiki practitioners, a universal life force energy flows through all living beings. This energy is believed to be present in the environment and can be channeled by a Reiki practitioner.

  2. Energetic Balance and Healing: It is thought that disruptions, imbalances, or blockages in the flow of this life force energy can lead to physical, emotional, or spiritual ailments. Reiki aims to restore and rebalance this energy, promoting a state of harmony and well-being.

  3. Reiki Practitioner as a Channel: During a Reiki session, a trained practitioner acts as a channel or conduit for the universal life force energy. The practitioner directs this energy into the recipient's body or energy field through focused intention.

  4. Energy Field and Chakras: Reiki theory suggests that the human body has an energy field composed of subtle energy centers called chakras. These chakras are believed to be connected to various physical and emotional aspects of well-being. Reiki practitioners work with these energy centers to restore balance and vitality.

  5. Relaxation and Stress Reduction: Reiki sessions often induce a deep state of relaxation, allowing the body to enter a state of rest and healing. This relaxation response may help reduce stress, tension, and promote the body's natural healing abilities.

  6. Self-Healing and Vitality: Reiki is considered a complementary therapy that supports the body's self-healing mechanisms. It is believed that the life force energy channeled during a session can stimulate the body's innate healing processes and enhance overall vitality.

  7. It's important to note that the effectiveness of Reiki varies from person to person, and it is often viewed as a complementary approach rather than a replacement for conventional medical care. While some people report positive experiences and benefits from Reiki, its mechanisms are not currently well-understood or scientifically validated. Nevertheless, many individuals find Reiki to be a soothing and relaxing practice that complements their overall well-being.

 Frequently Asked Questions:

Q) Is Reiki safe?

A) Reiki is gentle enough for babies, pregnant women, the elderly, and animals.  Reiki energy is an intelligent energy that goes where it is needed and at a level that is appropriate for optimal healing.  There are no side effects.  It can be used to complement traditional medical care, but please check with your healthcare provider first.

Q) Does it hurt?

A) Since Reiki is a noninvasive process, you should not feel any pain.  You may experience slight, temporary discomfort while the energy recalibrates within the Chakra system.  It should be released quickly and allow more energy to move through those areas to assist in healing.

Q) What happens during a Reiki session?

A) The Reiki Master will review your intake form and discuss any specific issues you would like to focus.  You will lay down on a massage table fully clothed except for your shoes.  The Reiki Master will scan your body for any energy fluctuations.  They will work on each chakra using Reiki hands-on positions and symbols.  If you are uncomfortable with touch, the process can be done directly over the body.  The effects of Reiki will not be diminished. 

You may experience brief periods of heat, cold, pulsations, tingling, and feelings of floating or peacefulness.  These represent the movement of energy throughout the body's median, or chakra, system.  Some people do not feel anything but rest assured the Reiki is flowing through them and will continue to clear and move blockages for the next few days. 

Q) Is this considered a religious practice or tied to any specific faith?

A) No, Reiki's origin was discovered by a Japanese monk named Mikao Usui but is not linked to any religious observation or group.  It is similar to meditating and may be used as a relaxing, alternative healing, or spiritual practice. 

Q) What is a Reiki Master Teacher?

A) There are four "levels" of Reiki - Level 1 Reiki Practitioner, Level 2 Advanced Reiki Practitioner, Level 3 Reiki Master, and Level 4 Reiki Master Teacher.  A Reiki Master Teacher has studied and practiced Reiki methods for years, following a very formal lineage of masters and teachers from the origin of Usui Reiki in Japan.  Throughout their training, they have been individually mentored by their Teacher, learning advanced techniques, receiving numerous energy attunements and hand symbols, and working with complex healing strategies and other modalities to complement their Reiki session.  As a result, they have excelled at the Teacher level, where they can teach and mentor others to be Reiki practitioners and Masters.
