Reiki healing is a Japanese technique for relaxation that is centuries-old. It reduces stress, strengthens the immune system, increases vitality, and boosts healing. Like acupressure, meditation, and aromatherapy, Reiki healing is both natural and non-invasive. Many hospitals, clinics, nursing homes, and wellness centers provide Reiki healing to patients.
What is Reiki healing based on?
It's all about your biofield! A biofield is a field of vital life energy that flows through and surrounds every living thing. Have you ever been in a room with your back to the door and sensed someone was behind you without hearing a sound? Did you then turn around and see that someone was in fact behind you? That's because your biofield was bumping up against their biofield. Your biofield affects your physical, mental, and emotional health, which means a healthy biofield = a healthy you!
How does Reiki work?
Your biofield extends on average 5-7 feet from your body, completely surrounding you. When you are at your best in whole health (physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual), your biofield can expand out to 12 feet and is highly charged with vital life energy. When your whole health poor for whatever reason, your biofield has low vital life energy and shrinks closer to the body. The Reiki practitioner channels the vital life energy that surrounds us into your biofield to recharge it, boosting your whole health.
What is a Reiki session like?
A Reiki session can take between 30-90 minutes, and the average is 60 minutes. The client either lays on a table or sits in a chair while clothed. The Reiki practitioner then allows the vital life energy to flow through them into the client's biofield to heal it. To do that, the Reiki practitioner either lays their hands on the client's body or hovers the hands within the biofield a couple inches from the body. The client can have their eyes opened or closed. During a Reiki session, the room can be softly lit, and gentle music and aromatherapy are completely optional. My Wealth in Health provides all these options during Reiki healing sessions.
