Reiki is a technique or energy system designed by Mikao Usui (1865 – 1926) in Japan. Reiki has two basic aspects: the energy aspect and the spirituality aspect. Anyone can practice Reiki. A Reiki practitioner is a channel for the Reiki. A Reiki practitioner is a person who has received the ability to use Reiki energy through an initiation protocol conducted by a Master Reiki. A Master Reiki is a person who has attained the degree of teacher. Master’s name is simply a title used in the same sense as in any other discipline: the person who has attained the highest level of study in the field.
Reiki brings more relaxation, helps to decrease stress and can give you mental and emotional clarity. Reiki practice on ourselves (through self-treatment or Reiki sessions from a Reiki practitioner) makes our body available to all vital energy needed. It is generally accepted that a high energy level is beneficial for the person, while a low energy level plus the disruptive elements of daily life creates the basis for developing a disease or diseases more easily and quickly.
The aforementioned benefits often trigger a “chain wellness response” that will stimulate the self-healing process when a person is cured, because – in some way – it has triggered their self-healing process, and this regardless of the method used by the Reiki practitioner.
A Reiki teacher does not judge and don’t make judgments about his clients/students. A Reiki practitioner or teacher remains humble in all circumstances. The Reiki practitioner is limited to observing whether the person needs energy and where. He will apply his hands using Reiki energy according to these observations. A practitioner or a Reiki teacher leaves his personal beliefs aside and does not try to persuade or convince the Reiki practitioner of anything.
It is recommended to the person receiving the Reiki treatment to consult his doctor or the specialist of his choice. Reiki has become a complementary therapy in its own right and is widely used in hospitals. Reiki, as a complementary energy technique, is compatible with any therapy, including allopathic medicine.
By practising Reiki, the quality of our concentration and our work is increasing and we achieve a higher level of job satisfaction. Reiki has a beneficial effect on the quality of our relationship to others (family, friends, colleagues, etc.) as well. In the end, the goal of the practice of Reiki is to become a better person each day.
As an energy/spiritual practice, Reiki has many parameters that are not scientifically measurable. Although it cannot be explained intellectually, studies show that Reiki really has beneficial effects and that we must take into account that our experience is called “scientific” when it can be repeated with the same results.
