Reiki Healing and Reiki Attunement – A Brief Overview on the Amazing Healing Arts

Introduction to Reiki healing

Reiki healing is a Japanese stress reduction and relaxation technique that’s also believed to promote health and restore well being to the body. It is a natural therapy that gently balances life energies. It also complements Eastern and Western medicine and everybody can benefit from it. This method usually brings about slow, gradual improvements over a period of days and weeks. It can be given to you through in-person or distant treatment.

This healing method has also been proven to be beneficial in surgery recovery, in chemotherapy treatment, and it also helps to improve blood circulation. It’s also fast becoming accepted in mainstream healthcare settings such as hospitals, hospice, operating and recovery rooms, nursing homes and many other institutions helping to demystify its effects and adding a much needed boost to the spiritual healing energy.

Treatment Overview

Reiki treatments are typically very relaxing, and recipients often fall into a lovely drifting state, or actually fall asleep. This can be used to facilitate physical, emotional, mental and spiritual well-being, it can be done on oneself, others, animals, plants, etc. A series of three or more treatments, typically at intervals of 1 to 7 days, is usually recommended if a chronic condition is being addressed. It is best when having a treatment to have no expectations except to be open to having the treatment. Distant healing are an excellent way to balance and increase your bodies energies without having to leave your home or wait for unavailable services. Given the fact that Reiki can be ‘self-administered’, and also the personal benefit felt from practising this amazing method, many people decide to learn how to practise Reiki after initially seeking or receiving treatment.

Attunement and Online Courses

Reiki attunement open up the energy path ways so that more life force energy can flow through the body. It raises our vibrational level to that of the energy added during the process. A practitioner is initiated by a series of attunements, which opens the flow of universal energy. This ability is passed on during an “attunement” by a reiki master and allows the student to tap into an unlimited supply of “life force energy” to improve one’s health and enhance the quality of life.

Although all of the energy draw on some form of life force energy, reiki is accessible only to healers who have received attunement by a reiki master/teacher.

Reiki courses can even be taken over the Internet, although Traditionalists state that attunement must be done in person, in order to take effect, as the Master/Teacher doing the attunement must be able to actually touch the energy field of the person being attuned. On the online course, you usually are provided with a manual for each level, an attunement(s), a certificate, instruction and support.


By the use of ancient reiki symbols, the practitioner channels the universal energy allowing it to flow where is needed to bring the energy centres into alignment. Although symbols are given, it is not a requirement that the student memorise any of them. The healer does not have to worry if they gave the correct symbols or if they concentrated on the correct place for the healing.


Reiki is a tool for use at any moment, any time, any where for on-the-spot stress release, pain relief and quick energy. The reiki provides means to balance the human energy fields (Auras) and energy centres (Chakras) to create conditions needed for the bodies healing system to function. This method is also the alternative medicine for physical, emotional, spiritual and mental health & wellness. Their purpose is to help people realize that healing the spirit by consciously deciding to improve oneself, is a necessary part of the experience.

Some example of the reiki healing health benefits are: Creates deep relaxation and aids the body to release stress and tension, accelerates the bodie’s self-healing abilities, help to get better sleep, reduces blood pressure; help with acute (injuries) and chronic problems (asthma, eczema, headaches), etc.
