Hands-on Healing

Do you believe that you can be healed of sicknesses by someone laying his or her hands on you? You may have read accounts of this in various religious books like the Bible. Anything is possible and these days, we are seeing more and more of such practices. One such example of hands-on healing is in Reiki.

If you have never heard of Reiki before, allow me to introduce it to you. Reiki is the ancient Japanese art of healing using the hands, thought, symbols and other techniques. It was founded by Dr. Mikao Usui who was very intrigued when he read the Bible about how Jesus Christ could heal people when He laid His hands on them. This led him to do his own research into the phenomenon. As a result, he formulated a set of beliefs, principles and techniques we know as Reiki today. Reiki itself has evolved over the years primarily due to other practitioners after Dr. Usui who further developed the techniques. In the original Reiki teaching, Dr. Usui had 3 levels of training. But today, it is not unusual to find Reiki trainings that have 7 levels or more.

How does Reiki healing work? As you can imagine, there is no correlation between Reiki and modern medical science so there is no way to explain Reiki methods physiologically or scientifically. But basically, Reiki centers on the principle that the human body is a field of energy that gives it life and health. When this energy is disrupted or blocked, the body becomes sick. This belief is also found in other ancient therapies like Ayurveda and traditional Chinese acupuncture. The function of the Reiki practitioner is to restore the flow of life energy and thus bring healing to the sick.

Reiki is able to bring about the same benefits as traditional massage. It can alleviate pain, lower stress, increase energy, strengthen the immune system and improve symptoms of acute and chronic diseases like asthma and arthritis. It can also speed up recovery from trauma and surgery.

Besides the physical healing benefits of Reiki, there are also emotional and mental benefits. You can experience emotional healing and mental wellbeing through Reiki. In Reiki, it is taught that the body has 7 energy centers called chakras. When these chakras are properly energized, they improve your senses of security, pleasure, creativity, intuition and focus among other things. It also brings about a release of pent-up negative emotions due to your past experiences. All these lend themselves to your emotional healing and mental stability. The result is that you will become a more balanced, stable and wholesome individual that knows how to relate to the world and people around you.
