Reiki: Everything You Need to Know

We have made a lot of breakthroughs in the field of medicine and pharmacy, in fact, we are now able to detect and treat all kinds of diseases and medical concerns. Of course there are still a lot of things that normal medicine cannot heal. At the same time, there are also side effects to certain medications and treatments which might not suit people at all. This is where alternative medicine and healing comes in.

Now a lot of people are understandably skeptical about alternative healing practices, but it is a fact that alternative healing has worked for a lot of people. Reiki is another form of alternative healing practice and we will be delving into it a little further below. Reiki is basically a healing practice that requires reiki energy. Reiki energy is not a physical or measurable form of energy like electricity, rather it is a subtle form of energy that comes from within us. This energy is derived from a higher power and flow through us.

This energy is basically healing energy. Now a reiki healing session can last between 45-90 minutes depending on the needs of the client. Your reiki practitioner will basically either position their hands on or on top of a certain area in your body that needs attention, they will then hold themselves at the same position for a period of time that can go up to 10 minutes depending on their client’s needs, letting the reiki energy go to their client’s body. There are no fixed number of sessions, clients come and go as they please when it comes to reiki. You won’t feel any pain or discomfort during the session, and by the end of it, you will end up feeling a lot more relaxed and rejuvenated.
