Reiki (pronounced ray-key) was discovered by Mikao Usui in 1922. It is a Japanese healing technique based on the principle that the practitioner can channel energy into the client by means of touch, to activate the natural healing processes of the person’s body and restore physical and emotional well-being.
The experience of Reiki is subjective, changeable, and sometimes very subtle. People often experience heat from the practitioner’s hands, although the practitioner’s hands may also feel refreshingly cool. Other common experiences are subtle pulsations where the practitioner’s hands are placed or cascading waves of pulsations throughout the body.
People often comment how comforting they find the experience of Reiki to be. An interesting study reported that recipients frequently feel that they are hovering in a threshold state of consciousness, simultaneously aware of their surroundings and deeply indrawn. Some people fall into a deep, sleeplike meditative state. Sometimes the experience of Reiki is dramatic, while for other people, the first session in particular may be uneventful, although they feel somehow better afterward. The most common experience is an almost immediate release of stress and a feeling of deep relaxation.
Reiki is cumulative and even people who don’t notice much the first time usually have progressively deeper experiences if they continue. Besides the immediate experience of the Reiki, you may notice other changes that continue to unfold as the day goes on: perhaps stronger digestion, a sense of being more centered and poised and less reactive, and sleeping deeply that night.
I am also a Master Teacher of Usui Reiki. I am presently working on my class plans and will be teaching Reiki I & II for certifications in the near future. More to follow!
