How does Reiki work?• Independent research into energy healing by Drs. Becker and Zimmerman (University of Colorado) in the 1980s found that the brainwave patterns of practitioner and receiver become synchronized in the alpha state - characteristic of deep relaxation and meditation.
How does Reiki work?• Further, that this state allowed the practitioner access to the earth’s magnetic field, the Schumann Resonance.• At these moments the biomagnetic field of the practitioner’s hands is at least 1,000 times greater than normal. (T. Bunnell, 1997).
How does Reiki work?• In 1990 and 1992, Zimmerman (USA) and Seto (Japan) discovered that the pulses sweep up and down from 0.3 – 30 Hz, focusing mostly in the 7-8 Hz alpha state• Independent medical research has shown that this range of frequencies will stimulate healing, with specific frequencies being suitable for different tissue
