Reiki is an incredibly amazing energy healing modality, which is a unique discipline that has been used throughout the world for many years and is one of the most ancient healing techniques you can use to keep your body in a balanced and healthy state. The particular form of Reiki utilized by our staff is Usui Reiki, which originated in Japan. It is truly an incredibly simple, yet incredibly powerful system of energy healing, which Florence Healing Arts gladly offers to their clients.
Reiki, pronounced “Ray-Key”, is a Japanese word.
Reiki ~ A Japanese form of complementary or alternative medicine developed (or rediscovered) during the latter half of the 19th century.
Rei is the Japanese word for universal, spiritual, sacred, divine.
Ki is the word for vital energy, life force energy, prana that flows through everything.
Reiki is actually a generic word in Japan that is used to describe many types of healing and spiritual work. It is not exclusive to Usui’s system of healing, however, it is a profound system of healing where the universal life force energy flows to and through the practitioner.
Since Reiki migrated to the West, it has branched off into many directions, however, the bottom line is that Reiki is Reiki. What truly matters is that Reiki is here and that it is being offered for healing, as well as being shared.
Reiki for People . . .
Reiki healing energy is transmitted via the Reiki Practitioner through light, hands-on contact, or with the hands held above the body, or can also be transmitted across the room, or even long-distance (where the client is not physically present, however, would have awareness of Reiki being sent to them).
During a Reiki session, the person receiving Reiki often becomes deeply relaxed, and may experience a release of tension (muscles become relaxed), pleasant tingling sensations, a reduction in pain, or even a shift in their emotional stance (whereby issues rise to the surface and are released, causing exhalations and perhaps even tears, etc.). Sometimes clients see colors, receive messages, fall into a restful sleep, or there may be occasions where the client feels nothing. In the rare case where the client experiences nothing during the session, they may notice subtle or not-so-subtle changes over the next 12-72 hours. The Reiki experience is different for every client, and also varies from session to session. The most important thing is to just relax, release our attachments and expectations, and just let go and just ‘be’.
As you can see, Reiki complements both conventional and alternative therapies and can enhance their actions, as well as lessen their side effects. Reiki can also provide compassionate support and comfort people in hospice making the transition much more peaceful for everyone concerned.
