Reiki – What Is This Ancient Healing Practice?

At TL HQ we like to think we’re all over the holistic healing modalities gaining popularity – acupuncture and Chinese doctor on speed dial, meditation apps telling us we’re on a roll and meditated for so many consecutive days. We hear holistic and we’re in.

When a friend suggested recently I go to Reiki recently I was like, “Yer I’ve heard of it – never done it but I’ll give it a go.”

I knew a couple of things before my session 1. They don’t touch you (or rarely do) 2. They move energy around (somehow).

What is reiki in a nutshell?

Reiki is an energy healing technique often used to promote healing, stress reduction and relaxation.  The word reiki translates simply as “life force energy”. So when they’re not touching you they are moving this ‘life force’ energy around you to help promote healing in the body, mind and spirit. Reiki is a very connected holistic practice and works on many different levels; energetic, physical, emotional, spiritual.

What can reiki help with?

If you ask people who go to reiki or practitioners they would say everything. Being a holistic practice there aren’t too many clinical studies but people who do go to reiki claim reiki can alleviate physical pain, help process grief, uplift your energy, increase motivation, and heal trauma. It’s not meant to replace medical treatment, but rather should be used to compliment other healing methods.

How does it feel?

To me reiki felt like a big emotional hug, release and validation. Did I feel different before and after my session? Definitely. There was a definite shift in energy ‘vibrations’ and a sense of peace and calmness which I guess what we all want. Will I go back. Yes.

Like all holistic therapies I feel like you have to be open to thoughts and the foundations of traditional and ancient practices that are gaining more popularity – all things come down to energy, awareness and feeling.
