The Reiki is a practice of healing that according to tradition was conceived by Mikao Usui, who was born in Japan in 1865. In Reiki laying on of hands used to channel the healing energies.
In this article, we talk about Reiki healing and how it can help us improve many aspects of our life. Reiki is one of the disciplines that fall within the field of holistic medicine and now I will show you the benefits you can get through energy treatments.
What is Reiki?
Reiki is an energy technique of oriental origin, whose ideogram “Rei-Ki” mades up of two symbols, “Rei” which represents the universal energy and “Ki” which represents the individual essence.
So we could summarise the meaning of the word Reiki as universal life energy. When we speak of energy, about our organism, we refer to the so-called “subtle bodies” of which the human being is made up.
The practice of Reiki therefore acts on a “subtle” and energetic level for the well-being of body, mind, and spirit.
It is a discipline handed down orally from teacher to teacher, practice today by thousands of people all over the world.
There are different schools and types of Reiki, each of which provides a specific training path to learn the technique, but before deepening the technique it is good to understand that Reiki is a spiritual discipline.
Note: Reiki should not be confused with other practices and disciplines such as Pranotherapy or Pranic Healing, which are other techniques.
The discipline of Reiki
The founder to whom the birth and spread of Reiki attributed Mikao Usui, who left some precepts as principles to follow for practitioners of this discipline. Master Usui defined them as “the secret method to invite happiness and spiritual medicine to cure all diseases”.
“Just for today:
Don’t get mad.
Do not worry.
Be kind to others”
It is an invitation to be present, to live “here and now “, to abandon anger, and develop greater trust and gratitude. An exhortation to be honest and kind to ourselves and others.
In these five principles, you find profound wisdom, little big tips to improve your existence, be happy and healthy. It would be enough to apply these principles and make them your own to transform your life for the better.
The practice of Reiki
Reiki is not a religion, nor a philosophy, but simply discipline and a powerful technique for energy rebalancing. To become a Reiki operator it is necessary to attend courses with qualified masters, who through some energetic activation’s, allow the learning of specific ways to be able to channel vital energy.
This practice, therefore, allows you to channel universal energy and transmit it to the recipient, to rebalance the energy flow and remove any energy stagnation that hinders its free flow, thus activating the body’s natural self-healing capacity.
Reiki is a technique using for natural healing but it is also a practice to restore balance in all aspects of one’s life, from the psychological-emotional level to the spiritual one.
Today, in some hospitals, there are already cases of integration between alternative medicine and official medicine that are integrating for a common goal. In this context, Reiki is used as support both for patients and for the medical staff themselves.
During a Reiki treatment, the operator thus becomes a “channel” through which energy flows into the body of the person being treated. The treatment takes place by placing the hands in specific points of the body and with the use of some specific symbols learned during the training courses.
This practice is aimed, as we have said, at rebalancing the energy field of the person by working on the subtle bodies. On the energy centers of the body, called Chakras.
The individual energy is thus harmonised and any blocks are removed. Restoring the energy balance that favors the body’s natural self-healing process.
In addition to promoting the healing of the physical body. Reiki also acts on the deeper planes, both on the psychic level, and by promoting greater awareness of the spiritual nature of man.
Advanced Reiki training allows the operator to also learn to send energy to a person not physically present, activating a remote healing process.
The benefits of Reiki
Personally, I approached Reiki because I wanted to know a holistic practice that would allow me to act not so much on the symptoms of the problem, but rather on the real causes that had caused it.
In this context, I have discovered that the causes of our discomforts are often very deep. Sometimes we are not aware of them, but thanks to this approach. We can operate at a much deeper level and eradicate the problem at its root.

Does Reiki work?
The answer is: yes, of course, but like all practices, it must be understood that in reality. The conscience of the “patient” plays a fundamental role. Since it is always he who must understand the message of the disease and allow his recovery.
The manifestation of a disease in the physical body can depend on something that does not necessarily concern the organism in the strict sense. Above all, it is not disconnected from what happens inside us.
We must understand that everything is connected: body, mind, and spirit are parts of us interpenetrated with each other.
Thus also the concept of healing changes completely, that is the disease is a message that manifests itself to make us understand that there is an imbalance, a discomfort, a problem that we must face internally.
Illness is a message, an opportunity for change.
We then approach our problems more responsibly, internally, understanding the meaning of the disease and the root causes within us.
