Reiki is a type of alternative medicine treatment. It was developed by a Japanese Buddhist namely Mikao Usui in 1922. The world reiki means the universal life energy. It manipulates the flow of energy in our body. Reiki states that the human have 7 energy centres in their body. These centres are known as “Chakras”.
Reiki believes that the energy should have a free flow through theses chakras in order to maintain the spiritual, mental and physical wellbeing. If the chakras are blocked, it leads to feeling of illness or weakness and pain. The energy force is in and around the body. This energy can flow from the reiki practitioner to the recipient of the reiki. The reiki opens the blocks which obstruct the chakras and allow a free flow of energy through the body thus allowing the body to heal on its own naturally.
Reiki has a technique known as hands on healing. The practitioner puts his or her hands over the boy at the location of certain chakras to remove the blocks. A session of reiki usually lasts for an hour. The practitioners usually advise to take more than one session for the procedure to work.
