Reiki is also a form of healing that is to be used in addition to traditional medicine.
Reiki is referred to the life energy that flows through all living things. It utilizes the Ki (energy) to strengthen and help others using a lot of hand techniques and specific symbols which channel the energy of the universe to heal the body. Master teachers trains and passes down their knowledge and expertise to their students before they can practice healing others using Reiki techniques.
Perhaps the most widely known form of energy work, Reiki is easy to learn and do, but can have powerful effects.
It is usually uses “laying on hands,” with the practitioner’s hands actually on the body of the client. Reiki uses specific hand positions, corresponding to organs and energy centers.
Reiki can help many ailments such as colds and flu, head and stomach aches, and can also help more serious illnesses such as heart disease. It can also help anxiety, depression and other mental health disorder.
Reiki uses mild touch or no-touch methods, along with spiritual practices, to help return the body back to balance. Balance can mean making you feel energized when you are tired, comforting you in times of stress, and relaxing you during times of distress.
Reiki sounds like pranic healing. And the principle behind the two methods is similar. However, the difference is that pranic healing focuses more on cleansing and energizing the body and reiki channels divine energy to the body. Reiki seems to be more free flowing energy, knowing that a spiritual power will know where to direct the energy being channeled. Pranic healing, on the other hand, uses focused and acute awareness techniques to direct the energy to specific body parts that need healing.
