Reiki. Restoring Your Life Energy

Updated: Mar 20, 2020

Reiki is a form of alternative medicine called energy healing. Reiki practitioners use a technique called palm healing through which a universal energy is transferred through the palms of the practitioner to the patient in order to restore the flow of life energy. In return, this encourages emotional or physical healing.

Reiki is both powerful and gentle, it is always beneficial and works to improve the effectiveness of all other types of therapy. A session feels like a wonderful, glowing radiance and has many benefits for both clients and practitioner. This includes positive states of consciousness and spiritual experiences.

Life energy

We are alive because life energy flows though us. Having a balanced flow of life energy is the cause of our well-being. It animates the physical organs and tissues as it flows through them. It also nourishes the organs and cells of the body, supporting them in their vital functions. The disruption of healthy life energy can be the main cause of illness. When your life energy is low, or if there is a blockage in its flow, you will be more vulnerable to illness. When it is high and flowing freely, you are less likely to get sick. If you have positive and healthy thoughts, your life energy becomes stronger, if you have unhealthy, negative thoughts, it is weakened or becomes unhealthy.

Good Vibes only

Our life energy is responsive to thoughts and feelings. When we have positive optimistic thoughts, we increase our flow and this causes us to feel better. When we have negative thoughts, our life energy is disrupted and diminished and we do not feel as good. When negative thoughts become lodged in the subconscious mind, they create a blockage in the flow of life energy. This having feelings of anger, anxiety or illnesses become more prominent.

What to expect

When a person receives a Reiki session, the body is assessed, and the practitioner then directs the healing energy using his/her palms as channels to the area that has the most blockage and is in most need of healing. The Reiki energy then works with the negative thoughts and feelings that have created the blockage of ones flow of healthy life energy and replaces them with healthy thoughts and feelings, thus releasing the blockage. When a block is released, sometimes a person will feel a cold sensation followed by a hot sensation. Once life energy is flowing freely, the physical organs and tissues are able to complete their healing process.

Recipients of Reiki may claim they can feel the heat or energy from the reiki master's hands. Others may see lights or colors, experience slight temperature changes, or simply feel a deep relaxation.


Reiki is alleged to aid relaxation, assist in the body’s natural healing processes, and develop emotional, mental, and spiritual well-being. It is also said to induce deep relaxation, help people cope with difficulties, relieve emotional stress, and improve overall wellbeing.

Conditions that Reiki has been used to help treat include:


Heart disease



Chronic pain


Fatigue syndromes

Reiki is not an alternative treatment for medical issues but an adjunctive therapy that can help support healing and increase a feeling of well being.

Reiki at a distance

It is not necessary to be physically close to the recipient in order to send the healing and soothing benefits of reiki energy. When recieving distance Reiki, the practitioner will encourage the recipient to lie down in a comfortable position and do whatever else they need to do to feel relaxed, such as light candles or play soothing music, while the practitioner focus on sending the energy to them.

Recipients of distance reiki sessions often report the same varying experiences as a hands on Reiki session such as; feeling heat or energy, seeing lights or colors, and feeling a deep state of relaxation.

What the world needs now more than ever, is to heal. If you are interested in trying a Reiki Energy healing session please visit:
