Effects, indications, contraindications of Reiki

Scope of Reikiology

The scope of professional Reiki, or Reikiology, is positive mental health. In this respect, Reikiology takes place as accompaniment of the person. It helps everyone to achieve their natural and sustainable well-being. Well-being is obviously outside medical, paramedical or psychotherapeutic settings. Reikiology is not a medicine.

According to Reiki specialisations, there are two main areas: Reiki is an unconventional, non-medical, therapeutic practice. That means; first, there is no state diploma (unconventional), secondly, its purpose is not to cure symptoms or diseases (non-medical),
and finally, it has a goal of natural well-being (for therapeutic purposes, see gardens for therapeutic purposes)

What is not Reiki: a method of care (treatment of a symptom), a medical practice, paramedical or psychotherapy, a method of “magic thought” (“New Age”, religiosity, etc.), finally an alternative therapy or a soft medicine, complementary or unconventional.

The effects of Reikiology

Beneficial natural effects

During the course of a Reiki session, the beneficiary returns as and when in deep meditative relaxation. He thus has a liberating physical relaxation, with a pleasant and well-being effect. Reiki promotes the release of the upset internal energies. These consequences have balance effects on the body as much as on the mind. Thus, Reikiology acts on: the well-being of the physical body, it produces an energy balance (deep relaxation, work on the knots and bodily pain), the well-being of the psyche and it produces a fluidity and lightness of the mind (re-harmonisation of the emotional system by the release of psychic tensions).

Side effects

Completely natural, Reikiologie does not produce any side effects. If a person wishes to express himself on a feeling of physical or emotional blocking, the professional practitioner will accompany him towards the dissolution of this energy tension.

How many Reiki sessions are needed to feel lasting effects?



It’s been decided – you made an appointment with a specialist to undertake a first reiki program. When you start this kind of program, you do not really know what to expect.

Reiki, what is it?

Reiki can be defined as a method of unconventional care of Japanese origin, based on treatments called “energetic” by laying on of hands. This method, which is currently very popular around the world, was created by the Japanese Mikao Usui following a mystical revelation that would have brought him at the end of the 19th century to receive the famous “keys to healing”. During a reiki session, it is customary for the practitioner to put his hands on the body and let the energy circulate naturally towards the areas that need it most.
Note that reiki is not a massage, there is no movement and the patient is not supposed to undress.

How many Reiki sessions are needed before feeling good?

It is difficult to answer this question universally. It all depends on the patient’s profile, and his emotional and physical state when he starts his reiki program. Generally, it is customary to say that from the first session of Reiki, beneficial effects are already felt. It is generally advisable to schedule no less than 6 reiki sessions to observe lasting and tangible effects on your body and your psyche. Usually, Reiki practitioners schedule close-up sessions at start-up, and then progressively schedule appointments as the beneficial effects of the therapy appear.

Now you know how many reiki sessions you need to finally feel good mentally and physically. As you may already know, Reiki is a gentle, non-invasive, painless method that can have miraculous effects on your body. Are you tempted? All you have to do is find a trustworthy person, and you will most likely be surprised by the beneficial effects of Reiki on your body.
