What is Reiki (霊気?
Reiki (霊気?, /ˈreɪkiː/) is a spiritual healing developed in 1922 by Japanese Buddhist Mikao Usui, which has since been adapted by various teachers of varying traditions. It uses a technique commonly called palm healing or hands-on-healing as a form of alternative medicine. Through the use of this technique, practitioners are transferring universal energy (i.e., reiki) in the form of qi(Japanese: ki) through the palms, which they believe allows for self-healing and a state of equilibrium.
In a standard treatment Reiki energy flows from the practitioners hands into the client. The client is usually laying on a massage table, or comfortable surface, but treatments can also be given while the client is seated or even standing. The client remains fully clothed. The practitioner places her/his hands on or near the clients body in a series of hand positions. These include positions around the head and shoulders, the stomach, and feet. Other, more specific positions may be used based on the clients needs. Each position is held for three to ten minutes depending on how much Reiki the client needs at each position. The whole treatment usually lasts about 60 minutes.
There is no fixed outcome of how you will feel after a session. Whatever your body needs will be the way you respond to the session. Some people see colours, or feel sensations or hot and cold others fall into a deep dreamlike state and some fall asleep! Reiki is a therapy whose main aim is to restore balance and flow into the body and each of us will receive this in a different way.
