What is Reiki?

I often come across someone who has no idea what Reiki is. So, I decided to write this particular issue devoted to that topic.  What is Reiki? Reiki is a very useful tool that can be used for a variety of things.

Reiki has been around for 100yrs. and first began in Japan. However, today Reiki is practiced worldwide by an array of people. Reiki is a method of energy healing that is very useful. From health care professionals to stay at home moms, everyone is reaping the benefits of Reiki.

Some of the benefits include: pain reduction, stress relief, and accelerated healing. Reiki supports the immune system and is helpful when treating depression and anxiety. Reiki has become more main stream and is being added to hospitals and clinics across America. Here in Connecticut, Hartford Hospital has offered Reiki to its patients for over 15yrs. Reiki is a great addition to any medical treatment. It is also a wonderful alternative to prescription drugs and pain medicine.

Reiki is not limited to humans and can also be used on animals. Animals love receiving Reiki and respond very well to it. Reiki can be used to help animals in shelters or to adjust to their new home. Just like humans, animals will experience pain relief and accelerated healing.

One widely known supporter of Reiki is Dr. Mehmet Oz. He has discussed the benefits of Reiki on his television show invited a Reiki master on to demonstrate.  He has even used a Reiki Master to assist him during surgery in the operating room. In addition his wife Lisa Oz is a Reiki Master and she administers Reiki on him and their children.

Reiki can be given anywhere at any time. A Reiki session usually consists of lying down and relaxing while the Reiki practitioner places her hands on or near the body in a series of different hand positions. All results vary but most commonly the client will feel calm and relaxed. Reiki is certainly a valuable option to consider.
