Reiki, a Spiritual Healing Practice


Reiki is a spiritual practice that was developed by Mikao Usai after a 21-day meditation and fast on Mount Kurama, Japan in 1922. He was a master Buddhist meditator and believed he had received the knowledge and ability to heal without depleting his energy.

Palm healing, tenohia, is a form of moving energy or chi through the palms to others. It is now incorporated into Complementary and Alternative Medicine (CAM).

Reiki Principles, or GOKIA in Japanese, were developed when Usai went to Tokyo to set up his Reiki system and school. He used Emperor Meiji’s ethical writings as a precept for the philosophy. Many Reiki teachers, practitioners and spiritual people follow the five principles because they are key to finding balance and peace in your life, one of the translations is:

“The secret art of inviting good fortune. The marvelous medicine for all sickness. Just for today:

Do not be angry

Do not worry

Be grateful

Work with integrity

Be kind to others.

Every morning and every night sit in the Gassho position (hands held palm-to-palm) and speak these words out loud in your heart. For the evolution of body and soul, Usui Reiki Ryoho”, Mikao Usui.

Reiki is not taught in the traditional sense but is given to a student through an “attunement” by a Reiki master and then the student can begin to tap into the healing energy. It works on the Hollow Bone philosophy that states that the practitioner is a conduit for the healing energy. It is not the practitioners’ or patient’s energy being used but the life force or universal energy being channeled through the process for healing.

Treatments are usually about 45 minutes to an hour long. Using palms placed in positions for 3-5 minutes. Traditionally, there are about 20 hand positions used in a treatment but some practitioner’s use their intuitive powers to heal. Practitioners’ will move head to toe, back and front or simply concentrating on certain areas.

People who receive the treatments report they feel heat, tingling or energy sensations while the palms are being applied to the body.

It can be useful if practiced in conjunction with other medical treatments to reduce side effects and reduce recovery time. The benefits of reiki are improved well being, relaxation and healing for the mind, body and soul.
