Reiki Usui – Return to Love treatment
Reiki is a simple, natural and safe method of energy healing. Reiki means universal energy and was first received in meditation by a Japanese doctor, Mikao Usui, while he was going through a month long meditation in a tantric Buddhist monastery, Kurana Temple. Reiki is transferred from the Reiki Master to the student during what is called an attunement. The attunement opens the crown, heart, and palm chakras and creates a very special link between the student and the Reiki source. The attunement itself is an incredibly powerful and sacred process.
In the life force energy of Reiki, the person who is attuned as a Reiki healer has had their body’s energy channels opened and cleared of obstruction by the Reiki attunements. A Reiki attunement connects the receiver in an increased way to its limitless source. Upon receiving the first attunement in Reiki, the receiver becomes a channel for this universal healing energy.
Reiki is administered by placement of the hands. A standard treatment includes hand position around the head, shoulder, stomach, legs and feet. The client does not disrobe and usually lays on a massage or Reiki table. The hands can be placed in contact with the person or the treatment can be given with the hands a few inches away from the body. A treatment usually takes between 45 minutes to 1 1/2 hours and feels like a wonderful glowing radiance that flows through you and surrounds you. Treatment can be given to others as well as to oneself. Reiki treats the whole person, including the body, emotions, mind and spirit, and creates many beneficial effects such as relaxation and a feeling of peace, security, and well-being.
During a typical Reiki session, the practitioner follows some general hand positions in an attempt to cover all seven main chakras and all major organs. Reiki healing begins at the head and moves down the body. The six major energy centers which are traditionally considered the most important are: The Crown, The Brow or the Third Eye, The Throat, The Heart, The Solar Plexus, The Belly or Sacral and The Root. They are located along the long axis of the body in conjunction with the spinal cord that corresponds to the major nerve plexuses of the physical body in that area of the body. The chakras are located on the etheric double twin of the physical body, one layer away from the physical body level. They are energy transformers, bringing Ki from the Earth and Heavens into the human body. They are the bridge between the physical and non-physical being. The chakras on humans are placed in a vertical line down the center of the body, front and back. Each hand position is held anywhere from 2 to 5 minutes or longer. During this time the practitioner simply allows the energy to channel out the hands and into the client. There is no physical manipulation during a traditional Reiki session.
Reiki has spread to many countries around the world and is an effective and gentle complementary healing modality. It is used in over 100 hospitals in the U.S. and practiced by many massage therapists, nurses, and physicians.
Numerous studies, and the fact than many clients have had powerful results, have shown energy therapies to be supportive to the healing process. Results have included: deep relaxation, emotional release, pain reduction or elimination, reduction of side-effects from other treatments, expanded awareness, feelings of peace, and healing of physical symptoms.
