Reiki FAQs – Frequently Asked Questions
What is Reiki?
In Japanese Rei means spirit, miraculous, and divine.
How does Reiki work?
Reiki is an energy healing system which was founded during the early part of the 20th Century in Japan by Dr. Mikao Usui. It is not known exactly how the treatment works but part of its strength is in moving the body into a parasympathetic state of relaxation where the body can rise to the occasion of healing itself.
The answer to this is different for everybody but despite a persons issues, common reported benefits are: Easier to fall asleep, a more sound sleep, calmer, less reactive, breathing more fully, more energy, more strength, increased focus, increased intuition,increased interest, better appetite. So in addition to all, none or some of these you may after a series of treatments feel direct improvement on chronic/autoimmune issues as well as a heightening of your spiritual sense.
No, no, and I’m not telling! Seriously though, Reiki is not a religion nor is it associated with any religion and is far from a cult. It is spiritual. It is an energy healing method and because it works and scientists can’t explain exactly why, people attribute it to witchery of some kind. Reiki does no harm, only good so it may be worth a try for you!
The best thing to bring, aside from your physical body of course, is a mind open to receiving exactly what you need at the time.
