August 16, 2022


Do you often feel stressed and overwhelmed? Are you looking for a way to relax and de-stress your mind and body? If so, then Reiki may be the perfect treatment for you. Reiki is a form of energy healing that has been used for centuries to improve mental, emotional, and physical health.

In this article, we will explore what Reiki is, its benefits, how it works, who can benefit from it, and more. We’ll also answer some common questions about this holistic healing modality.


What is Reiki?

Reiki is a Japanese technique for stress reduction and relaxation that also promotes healing. It 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.

The word Reiki is made of two Japanese words – Rei which means “God’s Wisdom or the Higher Power” and Ki which is “life force energy”. So, Reiki is actually “spiritually guided life force energy”.

The sensation of Reiki has often been described as a “wonderful glowing radiance that flows through and around you”.


The benefits of seeking Reiki treatment in Melbourne

Reiki is a simple, natural and safe method of spiritual healing and self-improvement that everyone can benefit from. It has been effective in helping many people who have stress related illnesses such as headaches, TMJ, neck pain, backaches, anxiety, insomnia, fatigue, carpal tunnel, high blood pressure, arthritis, IBS and menstrual cramps.

Reiki treats the whole person including body, emotions, mind and spirit; offering many benefits that include relaxation and an overwhelming feeling of peace, security and wellbeing.

Many people have reported miraculous results from Reiki treatments. It also works in conjunction with all other medical or therapeutic techniques to relieve side effects and promote recovery.


How does Reiki work, and what are the different techniques used in it?

Reiki can be applied through the hands, either directly on the body or just above it. There are different techniques and approaches to the application of Reiki, including:

  • The hand positions used in traditional Japanese Reiki are different from those used in Western Reiki. In traditional Japanese Reiki, the practitioner will use a set of 12 standard hand positions, while in Western Reiki there is more focus on using intuition to place the hands where they are needed most.
  • There is also a technique called “byosen scanning” which is used to scan the energy field around the body to identify areas of imbalance. Once these areas have been identified, the practitioner will focus on them with their hands.
  • There is also a technique called “palm healing” which is used to direct energy into specific parts of the body that need it.


Who can benefit from Reiki healing sessions, and how often should they be done for best results?

Reiki is a safe and gentle form of energy healing that can be used on anyone, including children and animals – it’s also safe to use during pregnancy. There are no known side effects from Reiki, and it can be used alongside other forms of treatment.

Reiki sessions can be done as often as needed, but most people will benefit from one or two sessions per week. For chronic or long-term conditions, weekly or monthly sessions may be recommended, and each session typically lasts between 60 and 90 minutes.
