Reiki Training and Healing

This article will explain the basics of reiki training and healing, the history, what a typical session is like, and the benefits. It will also explain the chakra system and how blockages can develop.

Reiki is a Japanese healing art developed in the 1800s. Reiki involves laying hands on the body to comfort and relieve pain. Every living thing in the universe has a life force energy flowing through it. This reiki energy is channeled through the hands of the practitioner into the body and aura of the receiver. Reiki heals on all levels: physical, mental, emotional and spiritual to balance all of the chakras and helps return the body to its natural perfect state

What Is A Reiki Session Like?

In a Reiki session, the client is fully dressed and lies down on a massage table under a blanket in a warm, candlelit room with soft music. The therapist lightly places and holds their hands on specific areas of the body for 3 to 5 minutes to rebalance the energy. It induces a deeply restful, meditative state.

How Is Reiki Different Than Massage?

Massage is extremely effective in getting rid of physical tension and often this is what is needed. However, sometimes tension held in the body is caused by emotional trauma, psychological distress, or spiritual despair. Emotions such as fear, guilt, grief and anger can become trapped in the body and mask themselves as muscular tension. Since Reiki works not only on the physical level, but also on the emotional, spiritual and mental levels, it is very effective in such situations. I often combine Reiki with massage to get the benefits of both therapies.

What Are Chakras?

Our body contains centers of energy called chakras. There are seven main chakras in our body and they directly correlate with our physical body. They are stacked together in a central column from the crown of your head to the base of your spine, and when they are in balance, we allow life-force energy or chi to flow optimally through us creating a better balance between the physical, mental, emotional and spiritual aspects of ourselves. Reiki balances all of these energy centers.

1st Chakra - Base of spine. Survival.
2nd Chakra - Below the navel. Emotions and reproduction.
3rd Chakra - Stomach. Personal Power.
4th Chakra - Heart area. Love.
5th Chakra - Throat area. Communication.
6th Chakra - Third eye. Intuition.
