Reiki is a natural healing technique that can be used to improve your overall well-being. The practice of reiki healing aids the physical, emotional, mental, and spiritual well-being, and it can be used to alleviate pain and bring balance back to all parts of the individual. 

With the use of hands-on healing, reiki provides deep relaxation and the promotion of a sense of peacefulness. It is particularly effective at alleviating stress and stress-related conditions.

So what is Reiki Energy Healing? What is the treatment like? And what are the benefits of Reiki Energy Healing? We will cover each question in this article.

What is Reiki Energy Healing?

The term “reiki” comes from the Japanese words “rei,” meaning universal, and “ki,” which means vital life force energy that flows through all living things. Some practitioners describe reiki as acupuncture without needles.

Reiki is a complementary health approach in which practitioners place their hands on or just above different areas of the body. It’s based on an Eastern medicine belief that living beings have energy fields that support their health and vitality.

Energy blocks, on the other hand, impede the innate flow of energy, causing not only health problems but also negative life circumstances like financial troubles or relationship problems, according to belief. Energy blocks of any living being can be treated, according to belief, which is why some practitioners also work on animals and plants. Reiki practitioners focus on sensing energy blocks and moving the energy for the greatest good of the client.

What is Reiki Energy Healing Treatment Like?

A typical session lasts 30 minutes to an hour. While reiki can easily be done in just about any setting, a typical reiki session takes place in a relaxing environment or treatment room, akin to massage therapy.

In a typical treatment room setting with a reiki practitioner and a client, the client begins face up and fully clothed. They might briefly discuss their ailment or situation they hope to heal. The session might begin with a brief meditation, and then the practitioner uses various hand movements to lightly touch or hover over various parts of the client’s body while they are face up and face down. Throughout the session, the practitioner focuses specifically on their intent for healing.

What are the benefits of Reiki Energy Healing?

Reiki practice may help with a variety of physical and emotional problems, including insomnia, stress, depression, anxiety, and pain.

Research tells us that Reiki can lower anxiety, stress, and pain in people undergoing surgery. In a 2017 study of patients undergoing knee replacement surgery, researchers separated 46 patients into three groups: 

One group received three or four 30-minute Reiki treatments throughout their hospital stay; a second group received the same number of placebo (sham) Reiki sessions; and a third group received neither Reiki nor sham Reiki. 

Researchers found that those who received Reiki saw significant reductions in pain, blood pressure, breathing rate, and anxiety pre- and post-surgery and greater reductions than the other groups.

Reiki may also improve mood and sleep: A study found that college students who received six 30-minute Reiki sessions reported greater improvements in stress, mood, and sleep (especially those with higher anxiety and depression), compared with the control group.
