Energy healing is based on the concept that every living thing is made of energy. Humans are made of energy. You have physical, etheric and subtle energy bodies. The subtle and etheric energy is often referred to as the human energy field or aura. Within the energy field are energy center points called chakras. When one or more of these chakras are out of balance or blocked or physical illness can occur. Stress can also occur when there is an imbalance or blockage. Additionally stress can cause a blockage or imbalance. It is well know that stress can lead to illness.
Reiki energy is one of these energy healing modalities. It is based on the works of or re-discovery of this healing method by Dr. Usui. Reiki practitioners are attuned to this energy so that they can transfer it to you. Reiki can be hands on, hands just above the body, or sent from a distance. If you have been attuned to Reiki you can treat others and you can also give self-treatments. Reiki can even be used on pets. It can be used to energize water, food, plants and more. Reiki can also be integrated with other healing modalities. Studies are now being done about the benefits of Reiki. It is now being used in addition to traditional healing methods in many hospitals and in hospice settings.
Reiki is one method of promoting balance and removing blockages from the energy field. Reiki helps reduce stress. When stress is reduced and energy flows more freely you are more likely to experience wellness, balance and harmony.
