Reiki is an ancient art of healing rediscovered by Master Mikao Usui in 18th century. Like many other energy modalities, Reiki works with the belief in divine energy. It is also called life force, Prana, Chi, Ki and consciousness. Reiki is not only a tool for physical and mental well being but spiritual growth as well.
The healer serves as a channel to divine life force and the recipient draws in the life energy as guided by one's higher self. Energy flows on its own, with the divine guidance and intelligence for the highest good of the recipient. It helps in clearing energy blockages and allows for free flow of energy in the body.
Increased wellness on a physical, mental and emotional level are common observations after a Reiki session. Healing continues even after the session is over. The client may feel tingling, a release of emotions, hot or cold sensations, sleepiness, or may not feel anything at all. These are all acceptable experiences.
