Reiki is a Japanese technique for stress reduction and
relaxation that also promotes healing. By "laying on hands"
is based on the idea that an unseen "life force energy"
flows through us and is what causes us to be alive. If one's
"life force energy" is low, then we are more likely to get
sick or feel stress, and if it is high, we are more capable of
being happy and healthy.
Reiki is a simple, natural and safe method of spiritual healing and self-improvement. It also works in conjunction with all other
medical or therapeutic techniques to relieve side effects and promote recovery.
While Reiki is not a religion, it is still important to live and act in a way that promotes harmony with others. Dr. Mikao Usui, the
founder of the Reiki system of natural healing, recommended that one practice certain simple ethical ideals to promote peace and
harmony, which are nearly universal across all cultures.
In order for the Reiki healing energies to have lasting results, the
client must accept responsibility for her or his healing and take an
active part in it. Reiki must also include an active commitment to
improve oneself in order for it to be a complete system.
In a Reiki session in Munich or in Starnberg, the practitioner asks the recipient to lie down
and relax. The practitioner acts as a channel for Reiki energy to wherever the patient
require it. Usually the practitioner moves the hands close to or on various parts of the
recipient's body. Some patients report feeling various subjective sensations: heat, tingling,
cold, pressure, etc. Practitioners of Reiki attribute these sensations to Reiki energy filling
energetic deficiencies in the body and aura of the recipient, repairing and opening their
energy channels (meridians or nadis), pulling out "negativity," and dissolving the
blockages of "stale" energy.
If the recipient needs it and is ready to heal, the Reiki energy will go where it needs to for
healing. But if, on the other hand, the intended recipient does not accept the energy on
some level, the energy will not be absorbed.
