How does Reiki work?

Reiki is an amazing energy that comes from the highest spiritual source. It has its own intelligence and knows exactly where to go and what to do. It is multi- dimensional and will heal the cause of a problem on whatever level it may exist body, mind, or spirit. It does not have to be directed by the practitioner. Because it is a channeled healing, the Reiki practitioner's energies are never depleted.

Which conditions can Reiki help?

It is possible to heal at any level of being: physical, mental, emotional or spiritual. Acute injuries can be helped to heal very quickly but more chronic illness takes longer. In some cases such as terminal illness, there is not enough time for the progress of the disease to be reversed. However, in such cases there is usually great benefit and enhancement of the quality of life giving a sense of peace and acceptance during the time remaining. Reiki healing can be given anywhere at any time as no special equipment is needed. The practitioner is a channel which the energy is drawn through by the need or imbalance in the recipient. Neither person has to use any effort of will or concentration during this process. Reiki healing can be given to clients without being physically present with the Practitioner. This kind of treatment is called Distant Reiki Treatment. Reiki flows to the areas of need, soothing pain and supporting the body's natural ability to heal itself. Reiki restores balance in one's life. There is evidence that the use of Reiki before, during, and after pregnancy haspositive results both for the mother and baby.Reiki supports all forms of treatment both orthodox and complementary. Reiki compliments any o ther type of "conventional" treatment the client may be receiving. Treatments do not involve pressure, manipulation or massage.The hands-off technique is especially effective for clients who have experienced abuse. Because Reiki is a Universally guided energy, it can do no harm. It always knows what a person needs and will adjust itself to create an effect that is appropriate and assist the body in regulating its own energy.

Can I request Distant Healing for someone else?

Yes you can. It is courteous to have their permission first before requesting healing for them. Sometimes the person needing the healing can't be asked. In these situations, many Practitioners and Masters will send Reiki with the condition that it be received only if the person that it is sent to is willing to receive it.

Is this the same as prayer?

With a prayer, we are asking for someone to be healed. We send our prayer and ask that healing be sent to the one for whom we pray. With a distant healing session, the Practitioner is sending Reiki directly to the person wanting or needing the healing. In this way they are different.
