Looking back a few years ago if someone would have told me about Reiki and how it can heal someone I would have laughed in their face. Having an analytical mind being in IT (Information Technology) if I could not see it, touch it or feel it was not real. As well being in Go Ju Ryu Karate for 13 years I understood Chi and depending how you stood and breath through a technique you would get more power. That was tangible for me, but to have someone just put their hands on me and flow energy through me that could heal me was something I could not believe.
Most books you read will talk about Reiki starting in the late 1800 by Mikao Usui from Japan and developed from there. I am going to tell you a story which I want you to take it as just that if you want to believe it as a true story or just a fairy tale that is up to you.
Energy healing as we call it has been around BC (Before Christ). Any history book that talks about leaders and kings always talk about having great healers with them using aromas, oils, toning and energy healing to help the sick. This has been going on for hundreds of years and being passed down to people who were open to learn and wanted to help people. I’m not going to go into any specifics that is up to you to find out for yourself. Today when a healing happens that no one can explain they call it a medical miracle. Be it the body naturally healing itself through reducing stress, eating the right foods, exercising, resting, and treatments like Reiki.
I am sure you are asking at this point what is Reiki. Reiki is the act of laying hands on the human or animal body to comfort and relieve pain. Through this process if you are more attuned to heal energy could flow through you. This energy is in all of us, think of it as an electromagnetic energy that connects as all too all things. This has been called the Universal Energy or Chi or Ki depending on your background and beliefs. This energy flows in all living things with a DNA and works through us to develop our existence. Now with Reiki people who have learned this style of treatment work to balance out the energies in the body by placing their hands on certain areas of the body to help calm and balance the energies.
Does this work? I have read all different posts, comments, reviews as well started treating clients myself just for me to see if it really works. I can honestly say every person I have treated so far has felt something happen and have felt benefits from a Reiki treatment with me. I have heard that this could be a placebo effect. I thought that as well working in a clinic with people with real pain and injuries. I have seen things so far that I am still trying to get me head around.
I had one person I was asked to treat who was kicked in the leg training in Muay Thai and ended up with a deep contusion on the outside of his left leg. The Athletic Therapist and hospital both assessed him and told him it would be 3 to 6 weeks to heal. I treated him once for a 60min treatment and the contusion was gone in 48 hours. He was back working out within a couple of days.
I had another dancer who was not able to touch her hands to the ground doing a hamstring stretch. She said her calves were just too tight. She has been doing treatment with a massage therapist and stretching daily but it was not helping. I did a 30min Reiki treatment with her and she got off the table as was able to touch her hands right to the floor. We were both shocked to say the least.
I can go on and on about the stories I have of people I have treated and the results they have found which has really made me a believer.
If you are having any emotional, physical or psychological challenges that you are going through and are not seeing any improvement. As well are not currently working with a Reiki practitioner I would highly recommend you try a few session with one and see how you feel.
