Reiki is a technique for stress reduction and relaxation that also promotes natural healing. Reiki is translated as Universal Life Energy that is present in all living things.
We are alive because life energy flows through us.
When your life energy is balanced and freely flowing, you are healthy. When the flow of healthy life energy is disrupted or blocked by negative thoughts and feelings, you become more susceptible to illness, disease, and low life energy. When your life energy is strong, you feel strong, can more easily deal with stress, and are less likely to get sick. Reiki is a technique that increases a person’s supply of life energy.
Reiki is both powerful and gentle. It clears away the negative energy and rebalances the life energy allowing our physical bodies to return to a natural state of well-being.
Use in Hospitals
Reiki is becoming increasingly popular in the medical community. Over 800 hospitals offer Reiki as a standard part of patient services, often with their own Reiki-trained physicians, nurses, and support staff. Patients who have received Reiki report faster healing with less pain, accelerated recovery from surgery, improved mental attitude, reduced negative effects of medication, and reduced anxiety during pregnancy.
According to a 2011 report by the American Hospital Association, complementary and alternative therapies, such as Reiki, have shown great promise in supporting and stimulating healing. These hospitals are really trying to see how they can address the needs of the person as a whole – mind, body and spirit.
