What is Reiki?
Reiki is a healing modality in which the practitioner weaves the worlds of the divine and the material through the manipulation of energy pathways. Reiki is an relatively modern Japanese energy practice rooted in ancient Japanese and Asian spiritual and cultural practices. The Reiki practitioner connects with the Royal (Rei) Energy (Ki) and, acting as a medium, uses that connection to support healing to particular parts of the body, the atmosphere, and materials via the hands.
Ki is similar to Prana + Qi, both often referred to as Universal or Vital Life Force. Much like in Yoga, Reiki practitioners work with chakra systems, nadis, marma points, and other vital life force pathway frameworks, such as Chinese and Abdominal energy maps. They also employ Japanese symbols whose names function much like mantras, each with their own vibration. Most Reiki sessions are similar in style and experience to massage sessions, except Reiki practitioners will not physically manipulate the muscles. Recipients often lay down on a massage table or sit in a massage chair. Reiki can be practiced with touch (hands on) or without (hands off) or even via distance (virtual). It is often referred to as an “energetic massage.”
After a Reiki session, most people report feeling a shift in energy, and that shift will vary depending on your healing needs. Some may experience increased energy; some may experience deep relaxation; some may experience physical pain relief; others may experience psychological/emotional pain relief. Still others, who are welcoming of spirit, may experience a visit from an ancestor or spirit guide. Most will experience some variation of all of these.
