The System of Reiki is an energy healing practice that can be safely performed on babies, the elderly and the sick. It is a painless, non-manipulative, non-invasive and does not interfere with or diminish the effects of other health or medical practices.
Reiki is increasingly accepted in health and community care facilities including hospitals, hospices and cancer support units.
The practice is transferred by Reiki masters and teachers who were trained in the tradition by another master. There are three levels, Reiki 1, Reiki 2 and Reiki Master or Master/Teacher. The first two levels can be achieved in one or two day workshops and provide the skills to practice Reiki on self or others. Reiki Master level is usually taught over a longer period.
Reiki is holistic; it works on the body, emotions, mind and spirit. The regular practice of Reiki, which includes giving and receiving Reiki treatments, has been found to stimulate a person’s own natural healing abilities and deep relaxation. It will also help prevent future creation of illness and disease.
It can complement other healing modalities, acting to reduce negative side effects, shorten healing time, reduce or eliminate pain, reduce stress, and help create optimism. Many patients also report significant improvements in their level fatigue, nausea and breathing.
