WHAT IS IT?
Reiki is a Japanese technique for stress reduction and relaxation that also promotes health restoration. The word Reiki comes from the Japanese word (Rei) which means “Universal Life” and (Ki) which means “Energy.” It is a subtle and effective form of energy work using spiritually guided life force energy, and it is not affiliated with any religion or religious practice.
Reiki is the life energy that flows through all living things. It is believed that a person’s “ki” or energy should be strong and free flowing. When this is true, a person’s body and mind is in a positive state of health. When the energy becomes weak or blocked, it could lead to symptoms of physical or emotional imbalance.
During a reiki session, a practitioner lightly places their hands on or just above a person with the intent of facilitating a person’s healing response through their energy fields. It is a simple and safe complementary health approach, with no evidence base of known side effects.
Reiki is effective for physical and mental relaxation, stress reduction, and increasing one’s sense of vitality. Clients of Reiki typically report experiencing the relaxation response and often report an increased sense of well-being and peace. Many have reported that Reiki may help with stress, low energy, sleep trouble, upset stomach, or other minor symptoms. Reiki also may help with releasing anger, fear, worry, sadness, and other unhealthy feelings, and may replace them with self-worth, confidence and tranquility.
WHAT DOES THE RESEARCH SAY?
While the practice of reiki is gaining popularity and recognition as a complementary health approach, high-quality research has yet to be done to examine and document the benefits and effectiveness of it.
Regardless, countless instances of anecdotal evidence support the idea that reiki can be very beneficial in its ability to aid in the healing process for any number of specific conditions, enhance spiritual well-being, induce relaxation or simply promote general well-being.
