What does Reiki do and
how it helps you.
Find out all the details of what happens during and after a Reiki session.
What we have learned here in the West is that someone else can just give us a pill and try to make our pain go away, but that often leads to recurrence and doesn’t lead us to live our most radiant healthy lives.
Quite often people are unwilling to submit themselves for alternative therapies simply because they are afraid - afraid of the unexpected or the unknown.
But fear is merely caused by a lack of awareness, a lack of knowledge, a lack of education, a lack of understanding.
Interest in alternative healing therapies is on the rise because Western medicine is, in some cases, failing us. Whether it is back pain, autoimmune disease, or long-term hormonal disruptions, we're turning to different therapies, some old and some new, to feel better. Many clients wonder or question what they may expect or experience with alternative or holistic sessions.
At the root of Reiki is the concept — once known in Western medicine up through the Middle Ages and still seen today in Eastern medicine — “that disease is caused by imbalances of vital energy in the body and that correcting these imbalances promotes healing," according to UMN's Center for Spirituality & Healing.
"Reiki can do no harm — the worst thing it can do is nothing," said Ann Baldwin, a professor of physiology at the University of Arizona and a trained Reiki master practitioner.
According to Albert Szent-Gyorgyi, 1937 Nobel Prize winner, “In every culture and every medical tradition before ours, healing was accomplished by moving energy.” Bioenergetic healing techniques (such as Reiki) have been in practice since ancient times. Ancient Egyptians, Greeks, and Chinese were known to use energy techniques for healing, such as using magnetite to provide relief from disease by increasing blood flow. The Bible and other holy texts also describe healing illness through the laying-on of hands. Reiki is, in fact, a modern version of this ancient healing touch, now practiced in several nursing institutions and hospitals.
These Ancient people knew that medicine isn’t something that you can get at the drugstore, medicine is something that you own, it is something that is a part of you.
As a matter of fact, over the past ten years, Canada has doubled the use of alternative complementary therapies. Almost half of Canadians now use complementary and alternative therapies to maintain their health or manage a medical condition, and more and more families are asking questions about using complementary therapies while at the hospital.

Reiki (pronounced ‘RAY-key’) is a Japanese word meaning universal life energy, (literal Japanese translation of Rei=universal, Ki=energy). It is a non-intrusive method of hands-on healing that taps into the energy of the universe referred to by philosophers and martial artists as ki in Japan, Chi in China and Prana in India, and modern science refers to it as biofield energy. The practice of Reiki is based on the teachings of a Japanese man, Mikao Usui, who taught and practiced Reiki in the late nineteenth and early twentieth century.
It is believed that a person’s “Ki” or energy should be strong and free-flowing. When this is true a person’s body and mind are in a positive state of health. When the energy becomes weak or blocked it could lead to symptoms of physical or emotional imbalance. When your life energy is low, it is more difficult to deal with stress; you may not sleep well, and you’re more susceptible to illness. When your life energy is strong, you feel strong, can more easily deal with stress, and are less likely to get sick.

During a Reiki treatment, both the Reiki practitioner and the recipient may feel sensations. A practitioner’s hands will often heat up as a result of the flow coursing through their palms. The recipient frequently feels sleepy and yawns repeatedly as incoming Reiki energies soothe and calm pent-up emotional tension and stress.
Reiki is a healing modality many skeptics love to hate, some people feel tingling or heat, others fall asleep, while others lay awake wondering what they are supposed to feel. Some people are more in tune with their bodies than others and will be able to share feeling the different sensations that occur while using Reiki.
Reiki can take a few sessions to feel comfortable or relax enough or quiet enough to experience the shifts it can facilitate.
Reiki works like a thermostat that regulates the body. Much like a furnace that automatically turns on and off to regulate the temperature, Reiki flows slowly or rapidly as needed to dispense balancing energies. These fluctuations of Ki energy churning within us can often be felt as pins-and-needles tingling, hot flashes, goosebumps, chills, throbbing, etc. There's no right or wrong experience.
You may experience any of the following sensations during a Reiki session: heat or coolness and relaxation on a deep level.
* All Reiki sessions require the client to remain fully dressed.
It may seem passive because during the Reiki session you’re lying on the table with your eyes closed, receiving the energy transmitted through the practitioner. But you can take action before and after the Reiki session to make the most of what Reiki has to offer on the physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual levels.
The Reiki practitioner and the Reiki itself are the tools you use as you grow and heal in your life. No matter how gifted the healer or how powerful the Reiki, you participate in the healing process by being open to growth and change.
One way that Reiki works is by helping you to be open to such change. You may not want to change at first, but eventually, as you truly desire to feel better within yourself, you may see that certain changes will help.
You may notice changes in the following areas of your life:
How far you go with Reiki depends on how you follow up on your Reiki sessions. As a result of Reiki, you may get a thought that smoking is hurting you or you have to start singing. To benefit from Reiki, take the insights you get while on the Reiki table and put them into action.
Reiki combines well with all the healing arts, whether they’re complementary treatments, such as chiropractic or massage, or conventional medical treatments, such as surgery or chemotherapy.
A Reiki session beautifully restores balance and heals at a deep energy level. But I still visit my chiropractor to help my body adjust on a physical level. I find that using different practitioners as needed brings out the best level of healing.
You still want to continue visits with your psychotherapist, nutritionist, or medical doctor. Reiki is not a substation for medical advice.
