The term Reiki is usually translated as “universal life energy”. It is a holistic healing system, meaning that it treats the whole being, addressing problems and healing on all levels: physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual.
Along with other therapies, such as acupuncture, homoeopathy and Qi Gong, Reiki is part of the emerging field of energetic healing, rediscovered from the wisdom and knowledge of ancient cultures for use in modern times.
Everything in the universe is made up of and connected by energy. By transmitting the healing energy of the universe along energetic pathways and through the practitioner’s hands to the client, Reiki heals as deeply as needed within a being to create a shift towards health.
Reiki can be used to maintain health and energetic balance in a healthy being to heal illness, injuries, emotional and spiritual problems, and to ease the transition between life and death.
This healing energy goes directly to the source of the problem and heals at a level and intensity that a being is open to receive. If the healing that is most necessary involves some aspect of a situation, Reiki will go beyond the being’s physical and emotional body and bring healing that is needed to the situation.
Reiki is a powerful tool for emotional healing following trauma, abuse, neglect, fear and trust issues, reaching deeply into even the most damaged spirits.
Reiki compliments both conventional and alternative therapies and can enhance their actions and lessen their side effects. There is virtually no problem that cannot be treated effectively with Reiki.
