How does Reiki Work?
The basis of Reiki therapy is quite simple. It involves the transfer of positive energy from the master to the patient. As the energy gets transferred from the giver to the taker, the ability of the taker’s body to heal naturally is enhanced and a balance brought about in his/her body. Reiki therapy is the utilization of specific energy transfer techniques to restore and balance the ‚chi‘ or energy in a body, naturally. Completely holistic, natural, free of side-effects, and a hands-on healing method, Reiki has managed to touch humans on almost all levels – the mind, body, and spirit!
Reiki Therapy Healing Method
Healing using Reiki therapy is easy. The energy transfer takes place through hands. Reiki therapy involves transfer of energy from the hands of the healer above the body of the patient. The patient is then allowed to attract as much energy as he/she requires. In order for the healing to be effective, the patient has to be completely receptive and must take an active part in the entire process. He/she is also responsible for his/her healing.
Types of Reiki in Practice
Basically there are several forms of Reiki, but the two popular ones are based on the principles of: „Usui System of Natural Healing“ and „Radiance Technique.“
The Usui System of Natural Healing principle is based on balancing and strengthening the energy of our body thereby promoting self-ability to heal.
