Reiki is an ancient, hands-on healing technique aimed at facilitating free flow of energy in the human body. Having its origin in Japan, the technique derives its name from ‘Rei’ and ‘Ki, meaning spiritually guided and energy respectively.
The Core Logic
The art of reiki primarily works on the core logic of life force that flows in the human body. From the perspective of holistic medicine, the basic life force or energy flows through the chakras, meridians and nadis in our body. This life energy also flows around us, in the form of aura. All of these pathways vitalize the body with the essential energy and life force. In turn, this energy nourishes and repairs organs, cells and tissues.
Reiki – The Impact
The human body has an in-built defense mechanism to handle stress and anxiety. However, when an individual has been under stress for long, this mechanism begins to fail and eventually all of these pathways are blocked. According to reiki, diseases and ill health develop when these pathways of basic life force are blocked.
Reiki can either be administered by a practitioner or can be self-learned as a meditation technique. Using special movements, the practitioner will just place his hands on or over some parts of your body. Using special meditation powers, he will attempt to reach out to the blocked energy pathways.
Reiki, the art of manual manipulation, works by clearing these blocked nodal points of energy. Once the original flow of energy is facilitated, illnesses can be treated using the body’s own natural mechanisms.
Experts also believe that reiki works by connecting the practitioner’s positive vibes to the client’s inner core. This puts the latter back in touch with his individuality and restores his physical, emotional and spiritual balance.
Research indicates that once reiki has cleared the obstructed energy pathways, the body’s immune system and stress-handling mechanisms are rejuvenated. Owing to this impact, reiki often leads to significant results such as lowering the heart rate as well as blood pressure.
