Reiki healing is a powerful technique with roots in ancient civilizations. But how does it work? What are the scientific facts behind Reiki’s efficacy? Who should be seeking out these treatments and why do they help to heal you? In this blog post, I will answer those questions for you!
When we think of energy, we might think of the electric kind. But there are other types of energy, too! Life force is an ancient Eastern concept in which living beings have a natural supply of healing power or ki (chi) that is used for self-healing and defense against disease, which has been described in Eastern cultures for more than five thousand years and also referred to as prana in Indian culture.
The scientific theory behind Reiki has its roots in quantum physics:
This ki (chi) is believed to be a natural form of energy derived from the Earth and other sources, including all living beings. The Reiki practitioner sends it to the recipient through an invisible channel as directed by karma that may have been created in this or past incarnations. This life force carries with it both healing power and information.
“Karma” is the Eastern belief that one of the fundamental laws in life is cause and effect. This law says that everything we do has consequences, good or bad, from which we will live with for our entire lives. In this sense karma can be thought of as an energy field created by a past action to produce future effects.
Reiki can be received by anyone for any purpose. It is a form of bodywork that works to balance the whole person on physical, mental and spiritual levels. Reiki practitioners say it increases life energy in its recipients’ bodies while helping them release mental tension (like anxiety or fear), relax, and heal.
Reiki is a hands-on treatment that helps to balance the whole person.
• It increases life energy in its recipients’ bodies while helping them release mental tension (like anxiety or fear).
• One of the greatest benefits of reiki is its ability to help with pain relief.
• It restores natural balance in your body and promotes healing.
• Helps to calm and relax you, allowing for self reflection which can be helpful when dealing with trauma or PTSD.
• Reiki connects you with your highest self and helps to release any feelings of fear or anxiety.
• It is a powerful way for us to connect more deeply in our relationships, both professional and personal.
Reiki is a healing technique that is good for anybody and everybody. For some people, it can be difficult for them to have pain relief without reiki treatments when they are dealing with specific pains like arthritis or backaches. Reiki does not always need to be seen as a medical treatment, but rather as a way of getting the body to do what it needs to do on its own.
