Reiki healing is a form of energy healing that is becoming more popular in the United States. People turn to Reiki healers for help healing from both mental and physical health conditions. But since the practice is so different from the more typical medical treatments of Western medicine, many patients have a lot of questions before their first Reiki session. Here are a few of those questions, along with answers.
How does Reiki work?
Reiki works by using the practitioner's energy field to shift the patient's energy field. By modifying your energy field, the practitioner is able to restore your body to a state of balance. You'll feel your stress lifting, and that alone can have a profound impact on your mental and physical health. More and more, stress has become known as a contributor to a wide range of ailments, ranging from depression to migraine headaches. So by freeing your energy and reducing your stress, Reiki allows for full-body healing and relief.
What do you feel during a Reiki session?
Remember that your Reiki practitioner will not touch you at all. They'll simply lay their hands over you, moving them in tune with their energy flow and your own. Some people do not feel much at all as this occurs, and others can feel a slight buzz or tingle in response to the shifting of energy. The effects you get from Reiki do not seem to be dependent on what you feel during the actual session. Plenty of patients don't feel much during their Reiki session but experience profound relief afterward.
Is Reiki a religious practice?
Reiki is not associated with a particular religion. Some consider it to be a spiritual practice because it asks that you venture into your own mind and let your own energy flow as the practitioner works on you. But you don't even need to categorize this as a spiritual practice if that is not something you're comfortable with. Reiki is, above all else, a healing practice that may be classified with other natural healing measures like acupuncture and massage therapy. People of many different religious traditions engage in Reiki, both as healers and as practitioners.
Hopefully, you now have a better understanding of how Reiki works and what it feels like. If you have any other burning questions, reach out to your practitioner prior to your session. They're generally happy to explain a bit more about what they do and how they can help.
