(NaturalNews) What is the mysterious energy technique called Reiki? Oprah and Dr. Oz both have raved about the benefits of receiving a Reiki treatment. Reiki can accelerate the healing process of the body, mind and emotions. Reiki helps release stress and creates balance. Maybe you just feel tired and rundown, but your blood counts all indicate that you are healthy, or emotionally you feel stuck in a rut, going nowhere. Reiki helps restore the energy that supports your health and well-being, getting you up and moving forward again.

Reiki's Origins

Reiki originated in Japan in the early 1900s and was founded and taught by Dr. Makao Usui. It was brought to the United States in the 1930s by Mrs. Hawayo Takata, who gave Reiki treatments and began teaching Reiki in Hawaii from 1970 until her death in 1980. Reiki is a technique in which the practitioner facilitates the flow of universal healing energy into the client's energy field. In the Western world of medicine, patients are looked at and treated from a biological and chemical perspective as having body parts, organs, skin and bones along with blood and hormones, etc. The Eastern model of medicine includes treating the biological, chemical, emotional, mental and energetic components of each person. They know that each person's physical, emotional and mental components are impacted by their flow of "chi," or energy, throughout their body. When the chi is low, disease and illness form. Our chi is impacted by our habits, exercise, nutrition and self-care. If we think negatively, eat poorly, worry, smoke, overwork, overextend, drink excessively and do not exercise, our chi is diminished. When chi flows freely throughout their body, a person has radiant health.

How Reiki Works

The Reiki practitioner sends chi into the client's body where it is needed. This chi removes energy blocks, restores the energy pathways, returns energy levels to normal and reestablishes the body's natural capacity to heal itself. That is exactly why we have all these organs and body parts, to maintain health. Reiki is a natural way to create and restore health and well-being. It helps the body recover from surgery, lowers pain levels, reduces stress, supports the immune system, aids better sleep, increases energy levels, accelerates the body's self-healing capacity and assists with emotional healing and spiritual growth.

Reiki's popularity continues to grow as more and more practitioners are taking Reiki into medical centers and hospitals, helping patients heal more quickly. Statistics show that, as of 2007, 800 hospitals in the United States were using Reiki, and this number is growing quickly. Many cancer centers have Reiki practitioners offering relief to their patients undergoing therapy. According to the 2007 National Health Interview Survey, which included a comprehensive survey on the use of complementary health approaches by Americans, more than 1.2 million adults had used an energy healing therapy, such as Reiki, in the previous year, and over 161,000 children had also. The National Institutes of Health note that research using Reiki for conditions such as pain, cancer, depression and over all well-being indicate that Reiki may help with symptoms of these conditions.
Reiki is a pain-free approach to incorporate into a wellness plan of action for any condition. It brings our body and emotions back into balance. When we are in balance, our bodies can heal, and you begin making healthy choices that support a life filled with radiant energy. A life that anyone can look forward to living.
