Reiki healing is a popular form of energy healing these days. It's modern incarnation comes from Japan, but many believe its origins trace from there back to India.

Reiki is useful for both restoring the spirit and healing the body, and works well with other healing methods. Reiki won't cause harm, so it's an excellent option to get started healing.

Spiritual Healing

Reiki healing is spiritual healing. It restores and replenishes the energy system. In so doing it helps the body heal. It is also a spiritual practice, so it's not a physical, mechanical method of healing; it's more subtle.

What this all means is that Reiki in particular and energy healing generally are very good at smoothing the emotional wounds of the past.

Anyone who's old enough to be reading this has picked up an emotional scar or two. After a while, they can overwhelm you if you don't work to heal them. Reiki treatments can patch up those wounds and keep your emotional and physical wellness solid.

Giving the Body What It Needs

The physical effects are usually subtle, but they can have far-reaching effects. For starters: Reiki will give the body deep relaxation. This is not to be underestimated. Today, we are constantly pushing ourselves too hard: We get up early, go to bed late, and thus we're constantly loading stimulants into our bodies. That plus the constant fight-or-flight reaction we call "stress" is almost always on. Releasing that and letting the body rebuild itself is very handy.

Beyond "mere" relaxation, I've helped motion sickness evaporate. I've seen burns fade in minutes. I've seen surgery (my own!) healed in a fraction of the normal time. They usually send painkillers home with you afterwards. I barely used mine after the first day. I also use Reiki to help someone manage chronic pain. Some practitioners use it to assist in all of life's transitions

How is it used?

If you find a Reiki practitioner, odds are they use it as part of their practice, not soley by itself. As useful as Reiki healing is, it's supportive in nature. It will compliment and support other healing methods. You'll see it blended with EFT or other methods. Any practitioner I knowwould urge you to see a doctor if you've got the flu or an injury. Reiki in conjunction with modern medicine is a excellent combination.

Let me just lay it out: Harming with Reiki can't be done. Reiki is an intelligent force. It won't allow itself to be used to harm. On my site I tell a true "sorcerer's apprentice" type story (starring yours truly). I probably would have deserved harm, but instead I merely taught a lesson...rather gently at that.

Going Further

The study of Reiki is a wide area. This is really only a brief intro. There are symbols that are handed down from teacher to student. Also, Reiki can be used to heal the past, the future, and over distance.  There's much for you to discover, if you feel drawn to it.

Great info.

I recently had my own Reiki experiences and am searching for more info and possible training to become Reiki 1 attuned.

I didn't realize that it was used with EFT methods.

Thanks!
