What is Reiki?
is a form
of therapy that uses simple hands-on, no-touch, and visualization techniques, with the goal
of improving the flow
of life energy
in a person. Reiki (pronounced ray-key
) means “universal life energy”
in Japanese, and Reiki practitioners are trained
to detect and alleviate problems
of energy flow
on the physical, emotional, and spiritual level. Reiki touch therapy
in much the same way
to achieve similar effects that traditional massage therapy
is used—to relieve stress and pain
to improve the symptoms
of various health conditions.
Reiki claims to provide many of the same benefits as traditional massage therapy, such as reducing stress, stimulating the immune system, increasing energy, and relieving the pain and symptoms of health conditions. Reiki is a gentle and safe technique, and has been used successfully in UMMC and other hospitals. It has been found to be very calming and reassuring for those suffering from severe or fatal conditions. Reiki can been used by doctors, nurses, psychologists and other health professionals to bring touch and deeper caring into their healing practices.
Reiki was developed in the mid-1800s by Dr. Mikao Usui, a Japanese scholar of religion. According to the story that has been passed down among reiki teachers, Usui was a Christian who was intrigued by the idea that Christ could heal sick people by touching them with his hands. Searching for clues that would explain the secrets of healing with hands, Usui made a long pilgrimage around the world, visiting many ancient religious sects and studying ancient books. Some reiki teachers claim that Usui found clues leading back nearly 10,000 years to healing arts that originated in ancient Tibet.
