What Is Reiki?

When most people think of massage, they think of physical touch therapy that involves the manipulation of superficial and deep layers of muscle and connective tissue. And while this is certainly one type of massage, it is not the only type. There is also energy work, which is where Reiki comes in.

So, what is Reiki? Reiki is a Japanese word that means "universal life energy." It is a form of energy work that uses the practitioner's hands to promote healing. The practitioner will place their hands lightly on or just above the client's body in a series of hand placements. These hand placements are typically on the head, heart, stomach, and hands. The idea is that by channeling universal life energy into these areas, the client will experience physical, mental, and emotional healing.

How Does Reiki Work?

The jury is still out on how exactly Reiki works. Some say it works by tapping into the body's natural healing ability and balancing its energy centers or chakras. In contrast, others believe it works by simply providing relaxation and stress relief, allowing the body to heal itself.

Whichever camp you fall into, there's no denying that Reiki can be an incredibly effective form of healing for many people.

What Are the Benefits of Reiki?

One of the main benefits of Reiki is that it is a non-invasive treatment option with few side effects. As a result, it can be used safely on people of all ages, including babies, children, pregnant women, and the elderly. It can also be used alongside other treatments, such as chemotherapy or radiation therapy, without causing any adverse reactions.

Some people also find that they feel more relaxed and attuned after a session of Reiki and report feeling less pain and discomfort. Other potential benefits include reduced anxiety and stress levels, improved sleep quality, reduced inflammation, and an overall sense of well-being. 

What Is Attuned?

There are different levels of training for practitioners of Reiki, and they must be attuned by a master before they can start practicing. The process of attunement involves opening up the chakras, which are said to be energy centers in the body through which the life force energy flows. Once attuned, practitioners can start using Reiki on themselves and others.

To experience the benefits of Reiki, you should find a practitioner in your area. Try it today and see how you feel.

Helping My Kids To Improve Their Health

I have always been one of those people who is overly concerned about parenting effectively, but a few weeks ago, I realized that my kids were really struggling with their health. They just weren't getting as much exercise as they needed, and it was really hard to watch them struggle with weight-related issues at such a young age. Fortunately, by working with our health team, we were able to create a treatment plan to improve each of our kid's lives. Check out this website for more information on helping kids live healthier, longer lives while enjoying the way they feel.
