“Trust the process, you do not need to know how it works, only that it does.”

Hazel Butterworth

So what is this Reiki thing anyways?

The practice of Reiki (pronounced ray-kee) is a form of energy healing that originated in Japan during the early 1900s, and has since become an increasingly popular and accessible alternative healing technique throughout the West.

 

The word “Reiki” comes from a combination of the Japanese words Rei (meaning “free passage”), and Ki (meaning “universal life energy) – hence Reiki aims to facilitate the free passage of life energy.

Reiki treatment works on all areas of a person, the mental, emotional, physical and spiritual (whatever that means to the individual).

The premise of Reiki is to bring the body to wholeness because if one of those areas is out of whack, then the body is not whole. Over the years there have been many studies on how Reiki treatment can help with cancer patients and pain management. 

There have been many studies on Reiki and it’s affects on the body with positive results. Studies done with cancer patients resulted in more energy, less anxiety and a significant decrease in pain

 

What can you expect during a Reiki Treatment?

1. Arrival

 

Come to your Reiki session in comfy clothes. You can also be covered with a cozy blanket if you wish. 

2. Getting Started

 

The treatment, delivered to 18 specific areas of the body, begins with you lying on your back.

 

3. The Healing Process

 

The Reiki practitioner’s hands are placed on 10 distinct locations on the head and torso. You will then asked to lie on your stomach (or side, if this is more comfortable), where the hands are placed on 8 additional distinct locations covering the back, hip area and feet.

The treatment typically takes approximately 1 to 1.25 hours to complete.

Reiki Research Articles and News

A study on cancer prevention and control by K. Olson and J. Hanson, the pain was measured using both a visual analogue scale (VAS) and a Likert scale immediately before and after the Reiki treatment. Both instruments showed a highly significant  reduction in pain following the Reiki treatment. Take a look at their article, “A phase II trial of reiki for the management of pain in advanced cancer patients.”
