Welcome to About Reiki Healing
Reiki healing is a form of holistic therapy for treament of emotional, physical and mental issues. The technique as mentioned uses the ‘laying of hands’ technique; energy is channelled from the practitioner through the plams of the hands, taking with it healing powers to the recipient. Other benefits include detoxification, more energy in general, increased body vibration and the disipation of negative energy.
It is an easy to learn practice, is safe and natural, without the risk of any side effects. It is generally taught by a Reiki Master who has earnt the Master Degree; the first course undertaken is ‘Shoden’ which means ‘elementary’, the second course undertaken is Second Degree or ‘Okuden’ which means ‘inner teaching’.
As with all courses, the further you progress with Reiki training, the more you will learn. ‘Shoden’ introduces the student to the basic principles and concepts and may have up to four attunements by the Reiki Master whereas the Second Degree courses introduces the student to Reiki symbols and distance healing allowing the student to learn more indepth practices of the system.
Although the practice of Reiki may be spiritual in nature, it is not considered as a religion. There are no set of beliefs that one should learn or any prerequisites before undertaking a course, the only need is simply a willingness to learn and a belief in the methods.
