The World Of Reiki

In todays society we barely have any time to sit back, relax and switch off. We live in a materialistic world but most of us do feel something is missing. For some people that missing link is a sense of inner peace and tranquillity

Many people take up meditation, yoga, reiki or travel to tray and find a connection to their inner self. The practice of Reiki helps you find the path to get connected to your inner self and find peace with your soul. Reiki is the transfer of energy from the practitioner to the recipient.

Utilisation of this energy for healing purposes is the essence of Reiki; it consists of natural healing techniques whereby the person that has undergone Reiki training can treat themselves or somebody else through the ‘laying on hands’ technique. The Reiki master will place their hands over the recipients body and allow the positive energies to flow from the Universe into the recipients body.

There are three levels of Reiki:-

First level – The student learns the basics of Reiki and gets attuned to the energy cycles allowing the student to heal themselves. The teacher will teach you to channel the energy flow in the correct way through your body by just placing your palms of your hands in the right way. Reiki leads to a greater sense of balance between you and the Universe.

Second level – it is mainly for people who not only want to heal themselves but also others. Distance healing is introduced at this level, that is the student is taught to heal others even if they are a different geographical location.

Third level or the Masters level – In order to teach Reiki, one needs to be attuned completely and should ideally have several years of practice. It is a big commitment because it becomes your duty to teach others correctly.

The Reiki Symbols


When you are receiving Reiki, people usually experience calmness, peacefulness and happiness and with regular sessions, recipients will feel the dissipation of body aches, migraines, depression, mood swings and insomnia. The are no side effects but many benefits.

Reiki Spiritual Healing

Reiki therapy is one of the most pleasant and gentle ways that people can start to heal and can be used to complement any professional medical treatment given (Reiki should never be used as a replacement for professional medical advice). There are many benefits to this Japanese method of healing:-

Firstly, it helps with the reduction in stress and anxiety levels. The Reiki system allows the recipient to enter a deep state of relaxation and thus the healing process to begin. Many of the health issues that people suffer with today derive from psychological stress from the current and the past events. The therapy acts on positive energy transferred to the recipient by the Reiki Master. Even if the recipient blocks the positive energy they would not receive any negative effects or side effects.

This type of therapy can even be given to anyone regardless of their beliefs and faiths although a belief in the Reiki system is necessary. Religion does not have any effect on the methods of Reiki in any way.

The healing session begins with creating a relaxed ambience where the recipient can relax. It is important that they are completely relaxed and  comfortable before start of the session. The therapist would then open their aura and position their hands (laying on hands technique) paying particular attention to the affected area.

The Reiki treatment and healing process depends on the area of the body where the patient requires treatment. The hand placement may stay on one specific area for the entire session or in different places around the body for long as it takes for the energies to transfer through to the chakras.

Heal Yourself with Reiki

In the daily hectic lives we lead, the one thing we probably neglect the most is our health. As a result of this self neglect we are all too often faced with health issues due to the stress and anxiety we face in our lives. It is possible however to eradicate these issues and heal yourself with Reiki. Regular Reiki sessions can heal all kinds of spiritual, mental, physical and emotional issues. Some of the benefits include:-

· Relaxation and the release of tensions and stress

· Triggers the healing process within our body

· Aids sleep

· Reduces blood pressure

· Aids emotional cleansing and spiritual growth

· Supports and sustains your immune system

· Allows a greater flow of energy and removes blockages,  thus allowing the body to rebalance

· Helps with fight chronic issues, acute injuries and addiction

Regular sessions will restore the general conditions of your body and opens up your energy channels allowing the energy to flow and thus the body to heal. This also allows your body to deal with toxins and stress naturally, helping you to deal with related problems.

The benefits and effects of Reiki can be reinforced if used in conjunction with other natural therapies such as meditation, aromatherapy, crystals therapies, etc. Reiki is considered as complementary care. There are many Reiki practitioners who can enhance the effect of health care that patients receive in hospitals. For energy healing Melbourne Reiki experts can help men, women and children lead healthier and more fulfilled life. Reiki can also works with plants and animals.


Reiki Basics

There are many that think you have to have special abilities in order to practice Reiki. The truth is that anyone with the patience and perseverance to work hard has the ability to use energy generated through the practice. There is a simple meditation technique that will allow energy to flow through you in a matter of minutes. This simple technique involves just sitting or laying  so that you are relaxed and comfortable. You may put on some relaxing music to help you relax if you want.

Once relaxed,  place the palms of your hands gently over your eyes and with your eyes closed, take the tip of your tongue and touch the roof of your mouth just behind your front teeth. With every breath you take in you will need to open yourself up to feeling the flow of energy.

Once you feel that energy entering with your breath, feel it leaving through your hands when exhaling. Having your palms of  your hands over your eyes will allow you to feel the energy leaving your body as heat which is easier than anywhere else on your body.

This basic technique is all you need to start learning Reiki; of course, there are other things you can do to help you focus this energy to specific areas of the body. Reiki energy flows with intent; all you have to do is have the intent to feel the energy flowing through you. If you allow yourself to open up to this flow of energy, then you will also learn to control it to help those that need help.

It is important to take the time to control this energy and use it in a good manner.

There is nothing better than helping someone out and seeing the success that comes to their eyes as the pain is relieved and the ailments that have plagued them are gradually alleviated. It may take time to get to the point where you can do this efficiently and effectively, but once you do you will deepen your understanding.

A Complementary Treatment for Relieving Secondary Symptoms in Cancer Patients

Human touch and therapeutic massage have long been noted for producing significant improvements in physical and emotional well-being. Indeed, massage has a long history of use and effectiveness that dates back to the first time that an early human received an injury and instinctively rubbed the affected area to unconsciously stimulate circulation and release pain-fighting chemicals in the brain.

Massage therapists combine this instinctual premise with specific professional training to provide relief of symptoms for their clients.

Benefits of Massage

Massage increases the flow of both blood and lymph within the circulatory system, driving out toxins and oxygenating the
body.  It may contribute to improved flexibility and suppleness within the muscle fibers and joints.  Massage also stimulates the release of potent hormones within the brain that signal a reduction in stress, increased pain tolerance, and an overall sense of well-being.  It is believed that the majority of these results are produced by the autonomic nervous system in conjunction with the hypothalamus and pituitary glands.  These systems allow a cascade of chemical messengers, or hormones, to promote stress reduction and positive feelings.  In particular, massage decreases the “stress hormone” cortisol and increases the “bonding hormone” oxytocin while releasing pain-relieving endorphins.

Professional Research Supports Cancer-Specific Massage

Patients who are undergoing cancer treatment are particularly prone to physical and emotional manifestations of stress.  MD
Anderson, a leading facility in the fight against cancer, asserts that oncology massage, under the hands of a trained therapist, can reduce the pain, fatigue, anxiety, depression, and nausea that may accompany traditional cancer treatment.  The American
Cancer Society agrees that, while massage does not treat the cancer itself, massage may assist patients in tolerating the stress and discomfort that many experience during cancer treatment.

Indeed, doctors and scientists concur that, when applied by a professional massage therapist with specific training in oncology
massage, this complementary treatment may result in a decrease in negative secondary symptoms by up to 50%.  While this improvement is noted to be short-term, many cancer centers recommend a massage therapy regiment to produce these benefits repeatedly over time.  Indeed, researchers have found that these results are so impressive that they have deemed them clinically significant and called for further study into the specific mechanisms of action.

Special Considerations for Cancer Patients

Individuals who are using massage to cope with the physical and emotional stresses of mesothelioma and other cancers should pay particular attention to the qualifications of the massage therapist.  It is wise to seek a therapist who is licensed in massage and trained in specific oncology massage protocols.  This training can ensure that the massage provides the best outcomes possible in terms of pain management and symptom relief.

Massage is a beneficial and scientifically proven complementary treatment option for anyone suffering with chronic or
specific pain that is physical or emotional in origin.  In particular, massage therapy may be particularly effective for assisting individuals undergoing cancer treatment manage discomfort, reduce symptoms of stress, and maintain a high quality of life while coping with a cancer diagnosis.
