There are many people that have heard of Reiki but don’t know what it is, and there are some that have never even heard of Reiki. What is Reiki? Reiki is universal energy that is used to heals a patients body, or certain part of the body.
Reiki has been used for thousands of years to heal, and it is becoming more and more popular today. People by the hoards are switching to an alternative way of living and this includes turning their backs to the medical industry.
What does the word “Reiki” even mean? Reiki comes from the Japanese words “rei” (Universal) and “ki” (Life energy). Reiki originating from Japan and is commonly practiced everyday there just as it is becoming today. Reiki healing targets the energy field that surrounds your body and heals anything that is wrong.
When there is stagnate energy, also known as chi or ki, in the body, where there was a physical injury or even emotional pain for so long, these energy blockages become an illness and you can become even more prone to illnesses. You will become sick easier and more than usual.
Reiki energy aims to help the flow of energy and removes blockages, much like a acupuncture or acupressure session would do. Healing and improving the flow of energy within your body can reduce pain, speed up healing, promote relaxation and reduce symptoms of illness.
