What Is Reiki?

Reiki is a gentle, non-intrusive hands-on healing technique which uses spiritual energy to treat physical ailments without using pressure, manipulation or massage. However it is much more than a physical therapy. It is a holistic system for balancing, healing and harmonising all aspects of the person - body, mind, emotions and spirit - and it can also be used to encourage personal and spiritual awareness and growth.

The Word Reiki

The Japanese word Reiki (pronounced Ray Kee) is usually translated as 'Universal Life-force Energy', or 'God-directed Life-force Energy', or 'Spiritual Energy'. The word is divided into two parts:

Healing and Wholing

Healing is described in the dictionary as 'to be restored to health; to repair by natural processes, as by scar formation; to cure', but the origin of the word itself is 'making whole'. To make whole means healing on all levels — the mind, emotions and spirit as well as the body. The use of Reiki helps to clear blockages in a person's energy field. It works holistically healing, harmonising and balancing the whole person — to promote better health and greater well-being.

The Physical healing Process

On a purely physical level, our bodies have an amazingly sophisticated and intelligent set of healing processes to repair and maintain themselves, from our vital organs to our bones, muscles and skin. Inside our bodies, cells are continuously lost through wear and tear and replaced by cell growth and division. At one time it was believed that a few parts of our bodies, notably the brain and the nervous system, were unable to be repaired or replaced in this way once we reached adulthood; however, new research has shown that During each year 98 per cent of the cells in your body are replaced so in effect you have virtually a new body each birthday.
Your bone cells take about three months to regenerate your skeleton, althouoh the calcium in the bone takes longer, about a year; your liver gradually replaces itself roughly every six weeks; your skin is renewed monthly, and your stomach lining every four days. This constant replication and repair is what enables all physical healing to take place. Of course many things can impact on your body's natural healing ability; whether you eat a healthy, balanced diet; whether you drink plenty of water so that you are not dehydrated; whether you are too tired or under a great deal of stress; your age and general state of health; and so on. For example, poor nutrition reduces healing rates and increases susceptibility to infection which further delays healing, and studies have also proved that psychological stress has a similar delaying effect on the body's healing processes.

Healing As A Holistic Issue

So from the above information you can see that healing is not something which happens ‘out there', something which someone else 'does’ to you. There is really only one 'healer' of your body, and that is you, because your body possesses the mechanisms to heal itself, so all anyone else can do - whether that person is a doctor, a nurse, a complementary therapist or a Reiki 'healer’ - is to kick-start that natural process in some way, whether by conventional or alternative means.
