First let's explore the question "What is Reiki?" Reiki is a form of energy healing that originated over 2,500 years ago in Buddhist and Eastern traditions. Reiki means universal life energy. The practice is used to: balance the biofield (see sources to learn more about biofield), support the body's innate ability to for self-healing (return to homeostasis), and improve resistance to stress. An attunement ceremony empowers those who learn Reiki to transmit Reiki energy through their hands (in person or remotely). Once attuned, you have this ability for life and can use this healing energy to promote balance and harmony. Reiki can take place in person where the practitioner places their hands on the client during the session, in person where the practitioner places there hands over the client during the session. Reiki can also take place remotely (Distant Reiki) where the practitioner conducts the practice via the phone or via video call. Once trained in art of Reiki, people can provide Reiki for themselves, others, and animals.
This antient healing art was rediscovered in Japan by Dr. Mikao Usui in the early 20th Century. Dr. Usui taught Reiki to many including Dr. Chujiro Hayashi who opened a healing clinic in Tokyo. One of Dr. Hayashi's clients was Ms. Hawayo Takata, a first generation Japanese-American. Ms. Takata was healed from asthma and other medical conditions after a few months of Reiki treatment. She was so grateful that she became a devote student. In 1937 Ms. Takata brought the teachings of Usui Reiki to Hawaii. There she practiced and trained others in the healing art of Reiki for over 40 years.
7 Reasons you should try Reiki!
After years of trying to find something to help overcome health impacting chronic stress, I (Christine @ Health Empowered You) sought the help of a Reiki Master. Since then I have been using Reiki to manage stress and to augment functional health care. I believe in Reiki so much that I completed Reiki Level 1, Level 2, Master, and Master Teacher training. Because of this training I now offer remote Reiki services. When you are ready to experience the benefits of Reiki for yourself I am here for you.
