What is Reiki?
Reiki (pronounced Ray-key) is a Japanese word meaning Universal Life Energy. Reiki is an ancient method of hands-on healing that works on emotional, physical, and mental levels. There are four levels of Reiki practitioners, with Master being the highest level. Today Reiki continues to be taught by Reiki Masters who have trained in the tradition passed down from Master to student. Reiki is not related to any particular religion or philosophy so anyone can receive a Reiki treatment. Reiki has become quite popular as a form of bioenergetic healing, and worldwide there are an estimated 200,000 Reiki practitioners. In the two decades since Reiki Masters have been actively initiating practitioners in the West, there have been no reported cases of negative effects from Reiki. It can be used on its own or in conjunction with any other therapy. There are often times when your health problems are so serious that you need to take advantage of everything that is available.
How Does Reiki Work?
Reiki restores and balances the energy levels that are commonly depleted by illness, injury, anxiety, or stress. A Reiki practitioner does not make healing occur, but is simply a channel for the energy that augments the recipient’s own natural ability to heal. Reiki automatically adjusts to the needs of the receiver.
Within the subatomic world scientists are aware of energy forces that are unlimited, “unpolarised” (they do not have a frequency because there is no time factor acting upon them), and act as general ‘harmonizers” of the subatomic world by interconnecting everything and maintaining the balance and harmony of this little known world.
This “universal life energy” (the layman’s term) is probably the best description of the phenomenon known as Reiki. Advanced knowledge of the workings of the Reiki initiation process tends to reinforce this hypothesis. Reiki Masters use energy sequences and patterns to bring about the changes necessary to release this energy into the manifest world. This subatomic energy fits all the above criteria that characterize Reiki. One of the main functions of ‘Universal Life Energy’ in the subatomic world is to harmonize. If this “unpolarized” subatomic energy is released into the manifest world (acted upon by time), it will polarize immediately (heat, tingling etc.). This polarization will result in the harmonization of the energy field it targets. (Human, animal, plant etc.) To do this it will form a mirror image of the disharmony (disease) in the energy field. The harmonization of the energy field will automatically accelerate the natural healing processes.

What is a Reiki Treatment?
Reiki treatments vary according to individual needs.
The method of receiving a Reiki treatment from a practitioner is a very simple process.
The recipient lies fully clothed on a treatment table. If the recipient is unable to lie down, the treatment can be given in a sitting position. The main thing is for the recipient to be as comfortable as possible.
The Reiki practitioner gently places their hands non-intrusively in a sequence of positions, which cover the whole body (head, torso, arms, legs and feet). If the recipient does not feel comfortable being touched, the Reiki practitioner can administer treatment by hovering a few inches away from the recipient without touching the recipient at all. Quiet music is played during the session. Each session usually lasts one hour and induces deep relaxation.
