Understanding Reiki Energy Healing


What is Reiki?

Reiki is an ancient Japanese technique that, when translated, means “spiritually guided life-force energy.” Reiki provides a natural, gentle method of stress reduction that complements and supports all forms of medical or other health care treatment plans. The impact of stress and its effects on your physical, mental, emotional and spiritual well-being have long been documented. Reiki is based on the idea that an unseen “life-force energy” flows through and around you, and when this energy is low, you are more susceptible to stress and illness.

What are the benefits of Reiki?

Reiki provides stress reduction and deep relaxation which, in turn, helps your body strengthen its immune system and restore the balance necessary to promote wellness. Reiki has had a positive effect on virtually all types of illness and injury. It can do no harm, only good. The balance of “mind, body and spirit” achieved through Reiki can enable critically ill, terminally ill patients, or those facing chronic pain or surgery, to experience deep calm and relaxation – – it can help the body fight and prevent sickness – – it can impact or heal relationships – – relieve the stress and anxiety inhibiting career or other life-changing decisions – – the benefits of Reiki are many. When stress is relieved, and your “energy balance” is restored, your mind and body are free to focus on achieving and maintaining health and wellness.

The human body is composed of energy vibrating at varying speeds.  Our thoughts and emotions also represent energy vibrating at a particular frequency.  These varying vibrations create a “field.” Each person has a physical body and an energy body made up of many layers or fields of energy often referred to as the “aura.”  This represents a person’s levels of being…body, emotions, thoughts, and spirit. The aura is an information center and a highly perceptual system that transmits and receives messages from the external and internal environment. Each energy layer appears different and has its own individual function yet they continuously interpenetrate each other as well as the physical body.  These fields are perceptible through touch.

What Clients are saying:

“I have been working with Christina for over six months and she asked me if I would like to participate in a Reiki session.  I agreed and then proceeded to do some basic research on what the Reiki experience would involve.  While I had a healthy skepticism as to how beneficial Reiki would be for me I remained open to Christina’s suggestion.

It is hard to explain what happened during the Reiki session but it was enlightening.  It has been several weeks since I had my Reiki session and I think it made a difference in the subconscious mind that is starting to come to the surface in my conscious state of mind.  I feel much more at east and much more comfortable with who I am and how I intend to live my life in the future.  I think the most significant change that I have seen is I am much more comfortable with doing things that are in my own best interests so I can be the best person I can be for those people in my life who matter the most.  I am living a more authentic life.

I am very pleased with the results and I think it is likely that I will undergo another Reiki session at some point in the future.  It is too early to tell if I have just scratched the surface or if I have been able to attain lifelong changes that will allow me to truly live an authentic life.”

Tips for your Reiki Healing Treatment

Gentle Healing of Mind-Body-Sprit in a Relaxed & Nurturing Environment

Arrive at your energy healing session with an open mind and a willingness to receive healing. If you have doubts or are skeptical, it may limit your healing session experience. Expect to pay moderate fees. Relax on the massage table or chair offered to you for the treatment session. You may be given a choice of music and aromatherapy to help you relax. Discuss any expectations you may have and any issues you may want addressed with your healer. Expect the practitioner to know and use a variety of hand positions on your body or the energy field around you depending on the healing form she practices. Keep track of how you feel in a diary before and after your treatment. Expect to feel different sensations during treatment. As the healer channels energy into your energy field, you may feel the energy as coolness, heat or tingling on your skin. Some patients just feel relaxed. Feel free to communicate with your practitioner if you are cold and need a blanket, or if you are too warm and wish to have covers removed. Prepare for a release of emotions. As your energy field is being healed, previously stored toxic emotions are released. Some patients are moved to tears and some have an attack of giggles. The emotional release could take any form. Try to drink lots of water in the days following the treatment because you may feel extremely tired or have a lot of headaches. This means that toxins are being released from your body. This is a sign that the energy healing treatment is working. Expect to feel an improvement either immediately after the treatment or gradually in the days following. The amount of time it will take for you to feel some improvement will depend on the issues with which you are dealing. Interested in Receiving Reiki Certification with Lynn Boggess too?
