Reiki Sessions

 
“This is the secret of our path:
gentleness and flexibility bring the results
that force and rigidity fail to achieve.”

(Lao-tzu)
 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Since the 1940’s, the practice of Reiki has been gaining popularity in the West mostly due to its therapeutic effects. As a result, according to the classification designed by the National Center for Complementary and Alternative Medicine at NIH, Reiki now belongs in the category of “biofield medicine which involves systems that use subtle energy fields in and around the body for medical purposes.”

Reiki is facilitated most commonly by light touch or the placement of the hands in or through biofields. However, when even light touch is contraindicated, as in the case of lesions, the hands can hover above the body.

The concepts underlying energy therapies such as Reiki state that a person is a whole in which all the parts are interconnected and that physical imbalances occur when the free flow of energy is blocked. Reiki treatments don’t focus specifically on relieving symptoms (although, they are often relieved), but on dissolving blockages so that energy can flow to rebalance the individual on all levels as quickly as the recipient’s system is ready to accommodate healing. In other words, healing may have to take place on other levels (emotional, mental and/or spiritual) before physical results can occur. Thus, to heal means to become whole. However, as Dr. Andrew Weil explains in Spontaneous Healing, “It is possible to have an inner sense of wholeness, perfection, balance, and peace even if the physical body is not perfect. Of course, it is desirable to restore physical wholeness, and the healing system will do it if it can, but when physical disease is fixed and immovable, healing can occur in other ways, including adaptation to and compensation for any loss of structure and function.”

In "Reiki – Review of a Biofield Therapy (History, Theory, Practice, and Research)", researchers Pamela Miles and Gala True, PhD, state that “although Reiki was first used in lay practice, it is incresingly used in a variety of medical settings including hospice care settings; emergency rooms; psychiatric settings; operating rooms; nursing homes; pediatric, rehabilitation; and family practice centers, obstetrics, gynecology, and neonatal care units; HIV/AIDS; and organ transplantation care units; and for a variety of medical conditions such as cancer; pain; autism/special needs; infertility; neurodegenerative disorders; and fatigue syndromes. Reiki’s popularity among the lay population is evidenced by its mention in a wide variety of publications from the New York Times and Time, to Esquire and Town & Country.” (http://www.reikiinmedicine.org/pdf/alt_therapies_reiki.pdf) Reiki can be easily and safely integrated into conventional medicine because the protocol for Reiki treatment is flexible, adapting to the need of the patient and to the medical circumstances and it involves neither the use of substances nor manipulative touch which might be contraindicated or carry unknown risks.

Generally, Reiki treatments have been found to induce relaxation, prevent disorders, increase vitality and well-being, strengthen the immune system and accelerate healing, reduce stress and anxiety, alleviate pain, promote detoxification, reduce the after /side effects of surgery or drugs, support the release of limiting emotions, patterns, and addictions, bring clarity, creativity, inner peace, and joy.
