Bio-Energy healing combines multiple forms of healing that have been practiced for thousands of years. It is a form of alternative healing that provides many health benefits and works to complement conventional medicine. The origin of the specific bio-energetic procedures practiced here are based on ancient Chinese medicine and Qigong.
Reiki is a Japanese method of stress reduction that promotes healing. It is administered by “laying on hands” and is based on the idea that an unseen “life force energy” flows through us and is what causes us to be alive. If one’s life force energy is low, we are more likely to get sick or feel stress, and if it is high, we are more capable of being happy and healthy.
Reiki can be defined as a non-physical healing energy made up of life force energy that is guided by higher intelligence or spiritually guided life force energy. It cannot be guided by the mind, therefore is not limited by the experience or practitioner
The word Reiki is made up of two Japanese words- REI which means “Gods Wisdom or Higher Power” and KI which is “Life Force Energy”. So Reiki is actually “Spiritually guided life force energy”.
Reiki does not depend on one’s intellectual capacity, religious beliefs or spiritual development and therefore is available to everyone and everything.
Reiki is a simple, natural and safe method of spiritual healing and self-improvement that everyone can use. It has been effective in helping virtually every known illness and malady and always creates a beneficial effect. It also works in conjunction with all other medical or therapeutic techniques to relieve side effects and promote recovery.
An important attribute of the life force energy is that it responds to ones thoughts and feelings. The life force energy will flow more strongly or be weakened in its action depending on the quality of ones thoughts and feelings. It is understood that the mind exists not only in the brain, but also throughout the body and extending outside the body in a subtle energy field called the aura.
While Reiki is spiritual in nature, it is not a religion. It has no dogma, and there is nothing you need to believe in order to use or receive Reiki. In fact, Reiki is not dependent on belief at all and will work whether you believe in it or not.
A treatment feels like a wonderful glowing radiance that flows through and around you. Reiki treats the whole person including body, emotions, mind and spirit creating many beneficial effects that include relaxation and feelings of peace, security and well-being. Many have reported miraculous results.
