What we're about
The purpose of this group is to share Reiki with as many people in our community as possible so that they can go out and spread the positive energy to the world at large.
Curious about Reiki? Results speak volumes. Around the world today it is typical to find a medical team headed by a physician who is supported by a psychologist and an energy therapist. Studies have found, hands down, that we are complicated beings who heal through a whole person process, honoring all aspects of what ails us...not just the body.
What is Reiki and why would Reiki benefit you?
What is Reiki?
The awareness of an unseen energy flow through all living things that directly affects the quality of a person's health has been a part of the wisdom of many cultures since ancient times. This life energy goes by many names: qi in China, ki in Japan, and prana in India. The ancient Hawaiians called it ti or ki. It has also been called orgone energy and élan vital, and science refers to it as biofield energy.
When your life energy is low, it is more difficult to deal with stress, as you may not sleep well, and you're more susceptible to illness. When your life energy is strong, you feel strong, can more easily deal with stress, and are less likely to get sick. Reiki is a technique that increases a person's supply of life energy.
What is a session like?
Reiki is given through the hands of a Reiki practitioner with the recipient lying fully clothed on a massage table. A session usually lasts between 45 minutes and an hour (shorter or longer sessions are possible). Reiki energy flows through the practitioner's hands into the recipient's body and energy field. A Reiki session feels like a wonderful glowing radiance that surrounds and fills the recipient and includes feelings of relaxation, peace and well-being that also promote healing.
What are the benefits?
Reiki allows muscles to relax and increases blood flow to treated areas, which, in turn, quickens the healing process. Practitioners and recipients report help with stress, headaches, insomnia, upset stomach, sprains, and other minor conditions. Occasionally, miraculous results are reported. Reiki also promotes psychological healing, including release of anger, fear, worry, sadness and other unhealthy feelings, replacing them with self-worth, confidence and tranquility.
Use in Hospitals
Reiki is becoming increasingly popular with the medical community, with over 800 hospitals across the United States offering Reiki as a standard part of hospital care. A research study at Hartford Hospital in Hartford, Connecticut indicates that Reiki improved patient sleep by 86 percent, reduced pain by 78 percent, reduced nausea by 80 percent, and reduced anxiety during pregnancy by 94 percent. In addition, nurses report that Reiki helps patients heal faster with less pain, reduces stress, improves mental attitude, improves appetite, and reduces negative side effects from drugs, chemotherapy, radiation and other medical procedures.
The phenomenon of the energy assists each individual in a specific, highly personal way, addressing the physical, mental, emotional, psychological and Spiritual aspects of being. Reiki, in its purest form, complements all other East/West methods to enhance recovery, wellness and happiness for recipients and practitioners alike. Reiki is easily accessible to all and is the perfect accompaniment to daily self-care from the inside out.
Reiki initiation—the core of Reiki training—creates alignment in the subtle vibrational field that surrounds, penetrates and supports the physical body. This effortless and reliable link to the Source of the pulsating Consciousness is the very definition of Reiki, and it allows students to begin practicing immediately on their own.
