How Reiki Practice Enhances Your Health?

have you ever heard of Reiki practice? Well, as you know it all starts with your body. In fact, your body is a self-programmed machine. It does not require a command to perform its duties. Also, it takes care of respiration, digestion, and blood circulation without you making an effort. It has a phenomenal ability to heal itself and bounce back from a setback or an injury.

However, there comes a time when your body is pushed to the wall and is overworked. The body cannot go on with the normal functions. This could be because you have been experienced some form of stress, whether permanent or sudden or maybe even trauma and injury related. The body is, therefore, unable to restore itself. The body is overwhelmed and the various processes begin to fail. This results in health effects such as headaches, migraines, anxiety, depression, stomachaches, muscle tension, muscle pain, and restlessness among others.

When this happens to your body, it is natural for you to want to find a quick relief. Most of the time, the relief could be food, drugs, or alcohol.  These have very harmful effects. There is a much better option that will give almost immediate relief and is healthy to your mind body and soul—Reiki practice.

What Is Reiki Practice?

Reiki is a Japanese word meaning ‘Rei’- God’s higher power and ‘Ki’- life force. It is an ancient Japanese spiritual healing that has been passed down from generations.  Mikao Usui, who was a health practitioner in ancient Japan, founded it. He recommended that in order to have a natural healing and relaxation, you should be in harmony with yourself, others, and the environment. It is famous for relieving stress and relaxing the body. It also restores the body’s natural balance and its ability to heal itself.

This treatment gives a wonderful glowing radiance to the body. It treats the entire being- mind, body, and soul. Reiki treatment has numerous benefits. They include:

  • Increase immune system strength.
  • Boost the body’s healing mechanisms.
  • Reduce the production of stress hormones.
  • Cure almost all types of illnesses and malady.
  • Restore the balance between the mind, body, and soul.
  • Leave the body feeling relaxed and at peace with the environment and with others.

This treatment can work in conjunction with other traditional treatments to give an added advantage or an even stronger relief.

How to Do Reiki?

Reiki works by channeling positive energy to the affected area. The positive energy flow moves to the affected area of the body, releasing tension along the way and replacing any negative energy with positive energy. Reiki energy is similar to the life force. It brings life to a stressed out and tired body.

The Reiki masters place their hands on the affected area of the patient’s body and transfer the positive energy through their hands. The energy then flows to the affected area. The Reiki practice cannot be learned right away. Rather, the Reiki master passes it to the student. The student taps into the energy during an attunement process.

The process is available to anyone regardless of his or her intellectual capacity. This is what has made the process easier to transfer from one generation to the next. This also made the process quickly spread all across the world. Today, there are thousands of people who come from various backgrounds that have this knowledge. There are also numerous centers that offer this treatment to their patients.

How Does Reiki Work Scientifically?

It is not exactly clear as to how Reiki works scientifically. The medical practitioners believe that Reiki practice has to do with the homeostasis of the body. Homeostasis is the ability of the body to regulate itself. A simple example of this ability is feeling sleepy and tired. If this ability does not function properly, it affects the systems of the body that causes the health issues associated with stress. Reiki relieves homeostasis system stress and gives it the energy to continue working properly.

Reiki practice can take place in both rural areas and highly reputable healthcare facilities. Evidence-based research was conducted using a touchstone process too. Additionally, this process uses a peer review for analyzing the scientific aspect of Reiki programs. As a result, the research showed that Reiki reduced heart rate and blood pressure.


Reiki practice is very important to our general wellbeing as the benefits of Reiki are quite effective. Today, there are various centers where you can reach out to get this treatment and learn more about how Reiki works. There is also an official magazine, the Reiki Times, offering plenty of information about Reiki practice. It also explains how it works, and elaborates on some of its benefits. The magazine also goes by the name of the International Association of Reiki Professionals. So, if you’re interested to know more, you can read and continue to expand your knowledge in Reiki.
