When Dr. Oz told viewers to try Reiki back in 2010, Reiki students and practitioners everywhere rejoiced! Not because
we needed him or anyone to endorse reiki, but because he validated what we’ve known all along. Reiki works! Some people get caught up in the science and statistics of why or how it works. But some of the most important things that we use daily like the internet, microwave and cell phones work and we have no idea why. And we r
eally don’t care how it works; we’re just happy it does. I feel the same about reiki!
For thousands of years people have used holistic and alternative medicine treatments for mind, body, and spirit health. Ancient cultures relied on tools such as herbs, yoga, food, meditation, and spiritual and hands on healing for their health and well being.
However in modern times, these practices have been overlooked in Western medicine even though many holistic therapies such as acupuncture, herbs, qi gong and yoga are commonly utilized in the East. The National Institutes of Health reports that nearly 40% of adults reported using CAM (complimentary or alternative medicine) in some form, however some people are still hesitant to try holistic or CAM therapies without the endorsement of their doctors.
Reiki (pronounced ray-key) is a simple and effective form of hands on healing that uses energy to help dissolve problems in the body, mind, and spirit. It is a natural approach to healing that is safe, gentle and non-invasive.
Ancient cultures, including the Japanese, Chinese, Indians, and Egyptians believed that life energy flows through the body, which deeply affects our body, mind and emotions. Current research strongly suggests that energy does extend throughout and beyond the physical body. Disruptions or imbalances in its flow result in physical, mental and emotional illnesses. Reiki addresses these imbalances to support overall health and well-being.
Reiki is useful in releasing energy blockages, and returning the body to its natural, balanced state. Reiki produces a feeling of total relaxation and well-being, and provides pain reduction and rapid physical healing.

Reiki is a wonderfully versatile form of healing that can be used for anyone with any type of ailment. For example, people receive reiki before and or after a surgery for better healing results. Cancer patients get reiki to relieve the side effects of chemotherapy and radiation. It can even be performed in person directly or by distance.
It is now being performed in hospitals, on cancer patients, hospice, spas and wellness centers across the country and around the world. It can be used alone or in combination with traditional medicine.
You can even learn to do reiki for yourself by taking a training course from a reiki master/teacher. Consider trying reiki for yourself and discover all the ways it can enhance your life. Once you’ve had a treatment, you won’t care why it works either! You’ll love the calming, relaxing, nurturing feeling of reiki melting your problems away.
