The Basics of Reiki

Increasingly people are turning to alternative holistic methods for dealing with the stress and pressures of daily life. Even doctors realize that changes in lifestyle will be required to supplement medical treatment for it to really work.In keeping with this new trend Reiki has shot into the limelight in recent years.

Hands-on healing

Increasingly, people are turning to alternative holistic methods for dealing with the stress and pressures of daily life. Even doctors are recognizing that it will take more than a few pills and surgeries to treat diseases like hypertension and blocked arteries. They realize that changes in lifestyle will be required to supplement medical treatment, for it to really work. 

In keeping with this new trend, Reiki has shot into the limelight in recent years. Reiki is based on the premise that energy is the fundamental nature of existence and that the human body, its thoughts and emotions, can all be expressed in terms of energy oscillating at different frequencies. Dense vibrations indicate discomfort and disease. Freer vibrations are a sign of health, beauty, satisfaction and well being. Thus, Reiki can be said to be a form of energy medicine, which uses a simple hands-on healing technique. 

The origins

The concept of Reiki originated in India, but it was rediscovered by Dr. Mikao Usui in Japan in the late 19th century. Dr. Usui was a Shingon Buddhist priest and a physician. He read about an ancient healing art in an 1100 year old Buddhist Manuscript and made a brief synthesis of the essence of this seven level Tantric teaching as Reiki. Dr. Usui shared his knowledge and experience with many people, but the subtler aspects were only taught to 19 close students. 

The healing process

According to Dr. Usui, Reiki is the Universal Life Force Energy that heals by calming the mind and raising a person's life force. This Universal Life Force Energy is the underlying basis for everything. As a result of our identification with our bodies and the five senses, our perception is limited and we cannot seem to go beyond the physical. Reiki helps us to become more open and aware and re-establishes the connection with the Universal Life Force Energy. 

Negative thoughts, emotions, and judgements like rage, anger, grief, resentment, etc.get stored in the body in the form of a physical and/or emotional block. This disturbs the natural frequencies of the energy flow in the body, which in turn, can be manifested as headaches, stomachaches, ulcers, rheumatoid arthritis, or even tumours.

According to the Reiki technique, all the blockages in the body's energy flow can be removed by the simple laying on of hands in certain positions over the entire body. The laying on of hands brings the body in touch with the higher vibratory frequency of the Universal Life Force Energy, which penetrates into the body and dissolves the blocks.

Peter.9 years ago
i am a reiki master/teacher and was looking for information on reiki and children when i found your site.
reiki is not known to have side effects. the practitioner (can self treat!) channels energy (ki, qi, prana,...) to the recipient. it is gentle and non-invasive.

my site at has many articles and links that you may find helpful.

i am sorry, but i do not know whether it has any impact on the inability to conceive.

warm best,

it is indeed very effective when i experienced the healing from someone else'hand but in case of self healing it doesn't seem such effective ,why it is so? are my channels blocked too much to allow energy flow to the it is required? or it heals to the same extent but in case of myself iam unable to feel that kind of sensation.
