Curious about Reiki
A Brief Overview
Curious About Reiki?
This brief overview is designed for those who are just hearing about Reiki and would like more information. The posts on my Facebook page go into more detail on specific topics. https://www.facebook.com/ReikiBalanceNBliss
Reiki (pronounced ray-key) is a non-invasive, hands-on Japanese healing technique. The two main benefits of Reiki are stress relief and relaxation which can also trigger the body's own natural healing abilities. It is a complementary technique and works hand in hand with all other healing modalities including traditional medical treatment. Reiki is not harmful...it always works for the highest good of the person or situation. Reiki is spiritual, but it is not religious.
Reiki works on all levels to balance the system and unite body, mind, soul and spirit. It helps keep the body in balance to prevent illness and is also used to treat chronic illness and disease (not to be substituted for traditional medical care). Reiki is already used in many cancer centers and hospitals across the country as a complementary treatment. Just a few of the major medical centers that offer Reiki to their patients to offset the side effects of traditional treatment are MD Anderson in Texas, Sloan Kettering in New York, John Hopkins in Baltimore and right here in Knoxville, Tennessee at The University of Tennessee Cancer Center.
Although reading about Reiki and learning the techniques are helpful, it takes an attunement by a qualified Reiki Master/Teacher to practice Reiki. Once you are attuned to Reiki, you have it for life. The classes vary depending on your teacher and the area, but each class (except for the 3-day Master class) is usually completed in one day. You are attuned to Reiki at the class and are able to use it immediately.
