Definition of Reiki

Reiki is an ancient energy healing practice originating in Japan. It aims to restore harmony and balance between body, mind and soul. The term “Reiki” translates to “Universal Energy” in Japanese, where “Rei” refers to the higher spiritual force and “Ki” represents the vital energy that flows within every human being.

This ancestral practice tends to restore physical, mental and spiritual well-being in the individuals who practice it. It can be used as a therapeutic means to relieve various physical, mental or emotional pain such as digestive disorders, respiratory problems or even chronic insomnia.

Reiki is established on the principle that a person has their own inner capacity to heal themselves if it is connected to their naturally healing life energy. During a Reiki session, a qualified professional works on the subtle energy fields around the patient in order to facilitate this internal healing process naturally existing in all human beings.


The main principles of Reiki

Reiki is an ancient practice that is based on five fundamental principles. These rules of conduct serve as a moral guide for practitioners and encourage a healthy lifestyle based on kindness, compassion and respect for others.

Just today: don't get angry, stay calm and honor your parents, teachers and elders. Honestly earn your living and show gratitude against all forms of life.

The five principles of Reiki can guide us in our daily lives so that we can care for others as well as ourselves with unconditional love. They can also provide us with a source of inspiration when we face challenges or difficult times in our interpersonal or professional relationships.

How does a Reiki session go?

How does a Reiki session work?

A typical Reiki session begins with a short interview between the practitioner and the client to understand their specific needs. The client remains clothed during the session, lying comfortably on a table or sitting according to their preference.

The practitioner then places the hands slightly above or in direct contact with different parts of the body (head, neck, chest, stomach, etc.) in order to send the healing energy into these areas. The sensations felt can vary: pleasant warmth or tingling as the energies circulate and realign in the body.

The duration is awesomely 45 minutes to an hour. After the session, clients are recommended to drink plenty of water to facilitate the elimination of toxins released during the healing process.

In conclusion, Reiki offers physical, emotional and spiritual benefits without being invasive or using artificial or chemical means. Whether you are looking to relieve your stress or find overall balance, this ancestral technique will certainly be useful.
