“Be the energy you want others to absorb” (Alexander Lawrence Posey, American Poet)

‘Life Force Energy’ causes us to be alive. Our physical bodies are just a beginning of what we are, and the energy surrounding us revolves around our physical bodies. A treatment, a technique or spirituality? Flourished through decades, for stress reduction and healing, the effects on humans that Reiki promotes merely is impressive. 5 cm to 10 cm aloft our body, is an energy that is called Aura energy. This Aura is comprised of the human energy field that bestows us with the feelings of happiness, relaxation, prosperity or even sickness or pain. Let us assume a person is nearby to negative people or places, the results could be adverse as his Aura can deteriorate and makes him feel sick or pain. At this very point of a person shattering internally, Reiki healing treatment can give him a beautiful glowing radiance that flows through him not only limited to the body but his mind, emotions, and spirit. Despite being natural and straightforward, Reiki is a safe method for spiritual healing which can be offered to anyone. The energy is not limited by distance or time so Reiki can be provided by the Reiki master to a person even if both of them are not physically touching or present in front of each other. This is the real beauty of Reiki which is not restricted by any belief or religion, in fact, Reiki itself is spiritual in nature and not a religion.

Healing History of Reiki

Usui reiki

“Just for today, I will not be angry Just for today, I will not worry Just for today, I will be grateful Just for today, I will do my work honestly Just for today, I will be kind to every living thing”

(Dr. Mikao Usui, Founder of Reiki)

Progressing through different phases, the origin of this unique healing style of Reiki contains a bit blurred information in the pages of history. Nevertheless, as far as it goes back, Reiki has never failed to impress it’s practitioners and is widely used as a reliable mechanism for inner and outer amelioration purposes. Reiki is a blend of two Japanese words, “Rei” meaning "The God's Wisdom" and “Ki” which is "Life Force Energy". The combination of the two words derives the meaning "Spiritually Guided Life Force Energy". The name ‘Mikao Usui or Usui Sensei’ is often referred Reiki as the legend says that in March 1922, Usui Sensei had a mystical experience on what they call Kurama Yama, in which he was blessed with the energy of Reiki and from this created and developed his style of Reiki, which he called Usui Reiki Ryoho. From then onwards Usui taught his system of Reiki to more than 2,000 people during his lifetime and laid a foundation of bringing Reiki to live forever. Usui Sensei had remarkable understandings of the concept of enlightenment and had spent his life in achieving it by walking on the spiritual path. The teachings practice of Reiki were spread throughout the world via several channels, the most famous of which are Reiki clinics. Names like ‘Chujiro Hayashi’ and ‘Hawayo Takata’ holds a significant value in the growth and development of Reiki clinics.

Reiki’s Mode of Functioning

Manipulating to treat sickness or diseases, "Ki" is the focused center of Reiki adherents. Despite this fact, how do Reiki functions? The numerous benefits of Reiki to its recipients and the working components of the Reiki healing mechanism are elaborated in the sections below:

Blessings of Reiki

“Reiki is valuable feedback for the patients”(Stephen Sinatra, Head of the New England Heart Center in Manchester, Connecticut)

Blessings of Reiki

The positivity and health traits that the Reiki is concealing within, comprised of total cure of problems like:

  • Emotional Problems
  • Depressions
  • Lack of self-confidence
  • Anger
  • Negative Thoughts
  • Stress
  • Weak Immune System.

Mentioned above, are no doubt, significant issues that are plaguing human souls nowadays. Moreover, these problems are unfortunately flourishing within every other human being due to ignorance which dominates over mental and physical relaxation. Therefore, Reiki is not just a choice but a necessity of present era average human being who has messed up his life with the burdens of negative energies and distorted chakras. Some of the fundamental benefits that Reiki healing have to offer to its recipients are:

  • Amplifying Energy: Reiki healing modifies the energy patterns that have gone old and no longer serve the recipients and amplify them to a whole new level where they become beneficial.
  • Balancing of Energies at a Stable level: The main idea behind Reiki healing sessions is balancing the disturbed chakras to a level where they seem just right. As soothing as it sounds like, this is performed by infusing the distorted chakras with universal light energy
  • Increasing Creativity: The causes behind the blockage of free-flowing creativity are stress and ego. The most significant benefit that Reiki probably serves is the rapid reduction of stress and ego giving a person automatic access to the creative realm of higher mind.
  • Increasing Awareness: Despite the fact whether we notice vibrations or not but we respond to each other's vibrations. The higher the vibrations, the more aware we are of our surroundings and more connected we are to our higher selves. The lower the vibrations, the more exhausted and angry we are. Dispensing the Universal light into one's being, Reiki acts as the light that displaces the darkness by providing higher frequency vibrations.
  • Releasing Emotions and Relieving Stress: Changes in moods gives rise to two leading problems that plague humans from within, Anxiety and Stress. These two problems often gallop hand in hand, and the world is getting infected by them real swiftly. Reiki, on the other hand, can heal one's mood. Assuredly, when a person’s mood is revamped, his anxiety and stress levels reduce significantly.
  • Working on Casual Level of Disease: It is natural that Reiki works on the physical and mental levels, helping the individuals to release negative energies which in turn helps to release the casual levels of diseases, sickness, and ailments.
  • Healing Holistically: Relating to the term of holism, Reiki works as a whole treatment on its recipients. This means that rather than dissecting into parts or working as a particular medicine, Reiki gives a beneficial treatment as a whole to body, mind, and soul.

Components of Reiki

Working on the principles of interconnectedness, the depth of components that work inside the core of this Reiki healing process is fascinating. For a proper preparation for the distorted channels, the Reiki practitioner uses five central elements to heal others. A usually followed list of transferring or receiving Reiki energy is as follows:

  • Attunements: To initiate Reiki training attunements should be done where a person is put "in tune" with the flowing Reiki energy. This is performed so that the Reiki receiver have the eternal ability to channel the energy.
  • Hand positions: A set of hand positions should always be used so that one should know where to place his/her hands during a Reiki session.
  • Meditation and focusing: A connection should be established with the source of Reiki universal energy this concentrates the Reiki healing energy within oneself.
  • Symbols: The most vital part of Reiki healing treatment is the use of Reiki symbols and mantra to establish a connection with the Reiki energy. This mantra is the sound of names of Reiki symbols
  • Reiki Principles: For a daily meditation practice, the five Reiki principles are used as a foundation.

The Chakras

Basically, life force energy can flow via two of the most basic channels the first one is the energy field around us called the Aura and the second one are the chakras which are denoted as energy pathways, there are mainly seven of them starting from the lower part of the body, all the way up to the head. Sometimes people only focus on the upper chakras as they are believed to be more spiritual. Everything is a manifestation of spirit, and it should be kept in mind that all chakras are of equal importance and an imbalance of even one chakra can have significant adverse effects overall.


  • Root Chakra (Basic Trust) Associated with the color red, the root chakra elaborates our relationship with the earth. The location of root chakra is the base of spine and name associates this chakra promotes elements of foundation or basis. Vitality, creativity, and youthfulness are linked to root chakra in addition with a significant portion which we usually know as basic survival instincts which are responsible for fight or flight nature in human beings.

The Symbols

Reiki targets the disrupted channels or chakras with the sacred Reiki symbols. These symbols are passed from master to master and are designed to attune others and help focus their attention to boost Reiki energy. Used in Usui system of Reiki these sacred symbols are:

  • "Cho Ku Ray": This symbol is known as the power symbol, and it means "God and man coming together" or "I have the key".
  • Sei Hei Ki: This symbol is the mental or emotional symbol, and it means "The Key To The Universe".
  • "Hon Sha Ze Sho Nen": This symbol is known as the distance symbol, and its meaning is "the God in me greets the God in you to promote enlightenment and peace".
  • "Tam A Ra Sha": Commonly used to unblock energies, this symbol is much popular for its balancing factors
  • "Dai Ki Myo": The most powerful of all the Reiki healing symbols, this symbol is only used by those that are Reiki masters. It is used to promote peace and enlightenment.

Market Segment of Reiki Healing

Even though several of the top medical facilities are now realizing the healthy benefits of Reiki healing, the traditional technique of spirituality is steadily gaining its presence inside famous hospitals and medical facilities. The reasons for this trend are the well-being benefits of Reiki which not only makes a person more joyful and independent but if suffering from a disease, can reduce the pain and possibly improve the recovery. One thing can surely be predicted that Reiki healing will face a tremendous growth in the upcoming years as the stats are in favor of alternative medicine protocol industry. According to reports, more than 60% of the global population uses some form of complementary medicine of therapy, and the global complementary and alternative medicine market was valued at USD 40.32 billion in 2015. Below, are the industry’s stats of revenue growth:

Alternative Medicine Growth

The research attempts continues to develop on Reiki, recently The National Center for Complementary and Integrative Health (NCCIH) of the National Institutes of Health (NIH) has done five different studies where they collaboratively researched at Reiki's ability to benefit people with diabetes, advanced AIDS, prostate cancer, fibromyalgia, and stress. And this is just the beginning there is lot more potential that is yet to be revealed of Reiki healing.

How is Reiki Different From Others?

The most famous and significant quality of Reiki is the simplicity that it possesses. While other healing therapies or massages can show up with the least useful results in months or even years, the Reiki healing can start to show up useful results within days or a month. After being gone through the process, most medical persons have received fast feedbacks with a significant increase in their energy levels and positive mood. Even in some cases if the patient starts to revert to old memories or emotions, conservation with him could be triggered with the ongoing Reiki treatment, both at the same time to let the patient go of his emotions. Reiki is easy and comfortable to taught to someone regardless of his/her age, race or even gender. While to some therapies or massages it takes years and years of practice to learn, Reiki gets passed from guru to his pupil and does not require extensive years of training.

Most of the massages or relaxation therapies are limited to physical bodies or in some cases just designated parts of the body, but Reiki works on a system of holism and works on not only the body but the mind and the spirit. Thus, vanishing the old pains and erupting the creativity and youthfulness to roll in. One of the most fascinating and unique things that Reiki has to offer is the distance Reiki healing. This type of Reiki healing allows the patient to get healed even he/she is afar by receiving the healing energy across time and space.

Does Distance Reiki Really Work?

The obvious answer would be, yes, indeed the life force energy flows through each and every living being, and we all have access to it. Reiki practitioners at second-degree level learn and get rewarded with three symbols, and indeed one is ‘the distance symbol’ that allows the practitioners to send Reiki healing energy through time and space. This symbol is used as a connection with the person’s energy if he/she is not physically present near the Reiki master. People often have felt sensations during their distance Reiki sessions and describes the feeling as if they are getting Reiki in person. The reason is Reiki works much similar to a furnace turning on and off to regulate the temperature properly. With human body, it's more like Reiki is doing the same to dispense balancing energies. These known fluctuations of ki energy churning within can often be felt as tingling sensations .

Hermetic Law of Similarity gives the bases to distance Reiki, which describes that "we are all connected, as we are all energy matter and part of a larger whole". The same law is invoked during a distance Reiki session which allows the practitioner to link any object to the energy field of the recipient. Some practitioner makes use of recipient's photo or crystals, and some even proclaim that Reiki energy can be sent to anyone without mapping or taking the support of an object, executed purely via directing the thoughts Hence it can be concluded that distance Reiki is proven and have been the reason behind the healing of countless people around the globe.

What If Ignored?

Body Aura deterioration can pace up silently in no time if not responded with proper action. Indeed, the results could be devastating as it accumulates more negative energy. As soon as a person realizes the feeling of this deterioration, the Aura could have been damaged over a certain limit often leading to fatal situations of sickness and pain. Reiki should be practiced in such conditions as it is the only way out from such damages occurring inside a living being.

Misconceptions of Reiki

Let's be clear on this point, lifelong established bad habits of stress, anxiety, poor eating habits often generated via several traumas cannot vanish within a span of a night. Restoring emotional and physical energies to a well-balanced position takes time. Most people have misconceptions that they could be fully cured instantly by taking only one session of Reiki healing. Well, the reality is a bit different, don't expect Reiki to be a one-shot deal. Just like curing any disease or condition, it takes time to almost any treatment in the world to restore the human body to its balance. Reiki treatment requires some number of sessions for a total cure. Though there are some cases in which only one session proves to be enough for maintaining the patient's Aura energy back to its balance, it is recommended that the patient takes at least five sessions for the best benefits. One of the primary reasons for Reiki practitioners to encourage their clients to take Reiki training is the number of recommended sessions. With Reiki training, you can give Reiki to yourself (as well as friends and family) every day.

We Got Your Back

A feeling of collapsing from inside or deteriorating emotions are healable. We have affiliated and experienced Reiki masters to send the Reiki Energy that is just needed for healing of such pain that. Five sessions of thirty minutes each are recommended for a profound impact which is available at reasonable prices

How does it work?

As discussed above, Reiki energy is not limited by distance or time; the distance healing session can be done without the client physical presence. There are some ways for practicing distance Reiki healing the practitioner can use visualization, a projection or even a proxy to send distance Reiki energy to someone else. A healer/Reiki master will be attuned into a second degree Reiki. Visualize the person you are sending the Reiki; the healer will then draw Dai Ki Myo, Hon Sha Ze Sho Nen, Sei Hei Ki, and Cho Ku Ray symbols three times. The person being healed should remain in a quiet place where they will be undisturbed, and then the healer will focus on sending energy and focus on his or her name keeping their intent on sending energy for 30 minutes. Thus, after this thirty minutes session, you will already start to feel better. Time can be agreed beforehand between you and your Reiki master and for a prescribed amount, you’ll either sit or lie down (typically a half hour or so).

Each Reiki master can have his or her methods for sending Reiki distance healing. In case you work with multiple practitioners, the quality of your session will not be affected by the different methods they will adopt. As the primary goal of each Reiki master will be to evoke the energies and transmit them to their desired places, they all will have one thing in common, and that is the use of the distance Reiki symbol. Furthermore, the effects of distance healing are similar to the hands-on session with hardly any differences. An experienced Reiki Master can send healing energies to a person anywhere in the world, no matter how far away from the recipients they are, the energies transmissions are just as reliable as they were delivered in person directly with the hands. Distance Reiki sessions are best for the person who doesn't live within a reasonable distance of a Master Reiki Healer. They are also ideal for individuals who don't have the time to travel, to and from a practitioner's office. If you don't necessarily like the concept of someone touching you, a distance healer can provide the same benefit without the need to touch physically. Step by step through each of the session, the blocked chakras are cured to healthy energy channels where the life force energy is allowed to roam freely, decrease the likelihood of ailment to a minimum.

In addition to the healing process, privacy and price are the utmost concerns for us, so we make sure that Reiki healing sessions are affordable as well as keeps your privacy unviolated.
