Reiki is an energy balancing system developed in Japan during the early part of the 20th Century. Reiki works by balancing the body’s energy field and energy centers (chakras). Reiki also works to relieve stress and promote deep states of relaxation that can aid the body’s natural healing processs. Reiki intends to put the body in its optimal state to promote its own healing. Reiki can thus help balance the spirit, relieve pain and promote well being.
Reiki is used as an alternative or complementary therapy. It can be effective in aiding the healing process when patients are undergoing chemotherapy or are recovering from illness, injuries or surgeries. Many hospitals, nursing homes and wellness centers offer Reiki to their patients. It is not, however, meant to take the place of medical care when a condition requires a visit to the doctor. Reiki practitioners do not diagnose conditions, nor do they prescribe medicine or perform medical treatment. It is recommended that you see a licensed health care professional for any condition that you may have.
Reiki possesses its own intelligence. It works differently for every person and every condition. Chronic conditions may require a series of sessions to experience some (if any) relief. Reiki may or may not be effective for your particular situation. It is important to set aside expectations regarding the results of your Reiki session. Reducing stress and having a positive attitude will go a long way toward your healing.
