Reiki at Mended by Hand
What is Reiki?
Reiki is an ancient healing technique rediscovered by Dr. Mikao Usui in Japan. He had a proficient Reiki practice in which he facilitated Reiki to thousands of people. Reiki is a light hands-on touch form of energy work that can be done lying down or sitting in a chair. Rei means Universal, Higher Power, or Spirit and Ki means Life Force Energy. Reiki is practiced to strengthen the body’s innate ability to heal.
Reiki is an Ancient Eastern ideology and a connection of the mind-body-spirit. Reiki can be thought of as a cousin to acupuncture and chiropractic techniques (which restore Life Force Energy). Reiki is categorized as a bio-field therapy and is used as part Integrative Medicine. It was introduced in America in the 1970’s and has been steadily gaining in popularity as a healing modality.
What we believe about Reiki
Reiki is a healing modality that exists in each of us. It is a gift from God. We have only to recognize the gift and ask God to help us open ourselves up as a channel allowing the Holy Spirit to work through us. The Holy Spirit directs God’s light and allows us access to this universal energy. Reiki is a gentle, healing process to be used positively and for our highest good. Through Reiki, we can help heal emotional and physical pains in ourselves and in others. We believe that regardless of your religious beliefs, God allows us all to give and receive Reiki for our highest good and the highest good of all.
Reiki is a method of stress reduction and relaxation that also promotes healing. The current technique was developed in Japan and is administered by the laying on of hands. It is based on the idea that all living things have a special energy flowing through them called life energy. When your life energy is high, you'll feel strong and confident, be more relaxed and centered and less likely to get sick. When it is low, you'll often feel tired, be more easily affected by stress and less resistant to illness.
