What is Reiki?

What is Reiki?
Reiki is a gentle technique that reduces stress and promotes healing and relaxation. It is a simple and safe holistic therapy that influences the body, mind, emotions and spirit.

Reiki Transforms Energy

Reiki is grounded in the belief that life force energy flows within us all. When this life force energy is low, stress, illness and disease occur. Reiki works by improving this life force energy and bringing about a sense of peace and wellbeing and enhancing a person’s quality of life.

Reiki Treatment

To receive reiki a person can sit in a chair or lie on a padded table. They remain fully clothed. A reiki practitioner then gently places their hands on or near certain points of the body. Treatment usually lasts between 60-90 minutes and is deeply relaxing. Reiki is simple to learn and can be taught to people so they can perform reiki on themselves.

Reiki Principles

Reiki is a spiritual healing practice but it is not a religion. Since reiki was developed in the 1920s different systems of reiki have developed. However, they all share the same five precepts or principles:
  1. Do not become angry

  2. Worry about nothing

  3. Express your gratitude

  4. Be diligent in your work

  5. Be kind to others

Reiki Complements Other Treatments

Reiki can promote healing on its own but can also support other healing modalities. Reiki doesn’t interfere with or diminish the effects of other health or medical practices and can:
  • Reduce negative side effects

  • Shorten healing time

  • Reduce or elimiate pain

  • Reduce stress and

  • Help create optimism
Reiki is increasingly accepted in health and community care facilities including hospitals, hospices and cancer support units.
Reiki is a healing practice that is so gentle it can be safely performed on babies, the frail and the sick. It brings about a deep sense of relaxation and contentment and can complement other healing treatments.
