The client was looking for some explanatory text concerning her healing technique and a friendly style to blend with it. We did the interview on the phone, had a fun time chatting and I delivered this text a couple of days later.

What Is Reiki?

Healing and disease both begin at an unseen level.

When our mental and spiritual bodies are in balance, the physical body is also aligned. The result is better health and an improved state of mind.

Reiki (ray-kee) is an ancient method of healing which gives us needed energy to help end disease, pain, anxiety and stress along with an astounding number of other physical and emotional problems. "Reiki" (a Japanese phrase for a Tibetan system) is usually translated as "Universal Life Force Energy".

Reiki is not a religion. It requires no particular belief system to work. It is simply a very old healing art which utilizes an intelligent force of nature. The transference of this energy is what constitutes a Reiki treatment.

A Laying On Of Hands

Practitioners of Reiki usually give treatments by placing their hands on the client's body with an intention to heal. The Ki energy flows through the practitioner and is drawn in by the recipient. Deep relaxation and relief of pain often follow soon afterward. Typically, a treatment lasts about an hour.

Reiki is easily also given to animals and plants with equally noticeable results.

If you are looking to meet a Reiki Master or Practitioner, there's no better way than to find a room full of them and get to know them as they work.

A healing circle usually begins with a short group meditation and then the practitioners give Reiki to the people who have come to receive it. These short treatments are about 15 or 20 minutes long. It's just a quick sampling of Reiki so that within an hour and a half or so, there is time for everyone to get a treatment and talk about the experience afterward.

I am a Reiki Master of the Usui lineage and also a Karuna (tm) Reiki Master. I rarely do a "traditional" Reiki treatment anymore; usually I toss in some reflexology, massage, or a bit of Shiatsu in my work.
