Reiki is a form of energy healing that can provide many benefits. Reiki is an oral tradition, which means there are many variations to how it is taught and what things are taught at which level.
Traditional Usui Reiki is based upon the oral teachings of Mikao Usui, which at this point have been committed to writing as they were taught by various teachers. Hawaya Takata is often credited with bringing Reiki to the west but her style of teaching was seemingly complex with hand positions that were varied and not committed to writing, making them more susceptible to change over time.
The Reiki practitioner is attuned to different symbols for use in accessing the healing frequency of Reiki and that healing is channeled through the practitioner to recipient. Traditional Usui Reiki is often viewed as more intuitive than the form of Reiki taught by Takata.
Reiki can provide many benefits including:
A Reiki session typically last 60 to 90 minutes in total. There is usually—particularly on the first visit—some time spent getting to know what issues you may want to work on, how you are doing physically, and anything you may want to focus on during your session.
During the session, you remain completely clothed except for your shoes. Reiki is typically done while you are lying down but can really be done in any position and even from a distance. But the best stress reduction comes from giving yourself the time to be cared for in a relaxed setting. Reiki may involve some light hand touching from time to time but is NOT a massage.
You can take an active role in your own healing process by making your preferences known. If you prefer no touching at all, just indicate this. You can also say whether your prefer your own music or silence. You can move around as you need to and can just relax and close your eyes, getting in touch with the healing that is occurring. Sessions are usually scheduled for 60 or 90 minutes. Many people experience immediate benefit, although the healing can integrate and resonate with people over time as well. You should feel comfortable asking any questions you may have and talking about your experience if you feel that will benefit you.
