Reiki therapy involves a lot of elements in just about every alternative healing
practice. This is because it uses spiritual healing, meditation, aromatherapy,
naturopathy and homeopathy among others to make the person or another feel better.
But what makes this Japanese healing art so unique and popular is that it involves the
transfer of energy in order to restore balance in the force.
Reiki therapy has several basic effects. These include deep relaxation, detoxification
of the system, the increases the vibration or frequency of the body, provide new
vitality in the form of healing energy and removal of negative energy.
In Reiki therapy, the practitioner places his or her hands over the patient. The
recipient should be lying down so he or she is completely at ease and ready to
welcome the positive energy.
Reiki therapy begins from the head and then works all the way down to the feet.
Ideally, this should be placed 2 to 4 inches away from the body of the patient. The
hands must be cupped with the fingers closely bonded together and the thumbs pulled
upward against the hand so the positive energy that you possess is directed to the one
who needs it.
For this to work, both the healer and the person being healed need to take an active
part in the healing process. One sends forth the energy while the other should openly
The strength of Reiki therapy depends on the level of the healer. There are three types
and this improves through attunements.
Reiki healers in the fist level are only taught the basic hand positions and the scared
symbol so they can perform direct healing over others. In level two, they can now
teach the symbols and hand position so they can practice distance healing. In level
three, the person should be able to know everything and thus earn the title of master
and can already teach this to others.
Are there risks in Reiki therapy? The answer is no. The only thing the patient can do
is block the positive energy that is being given but this does not cause him or her
harm in any way.
Another thing people should remember is that Reiki therapy works in conjunction
with western medicine and other practices. It is simply designed to help the person
heal especially for those who need to undergo surgery.
Reiki therapy is not successful after only on session. This has to be done several
times until the patient is completely healed and this can only happen the body
becomes in tune with itself.
A practitioner can even do this to him or herself to reduce the anxiety and stress that
happens everyday as people live a happier life if there is both harmony and peace.
If you want to become a Reiki practitioner, you first have to sign up in a class that is
conducted by a certified Reiki master. Level one students will have to undergo
training for a couple of days and then a 21 day cleansing period before proceeding on
to the next one so read the manual and keep an open mind.
There are also Reiki therapy classes offered through distance learning programs and
online so its really up to you to embrace the power of this alternative form of healing
