Since Reiki is comprised of two words – Rei and ki, lets think about ki, or energy.
You and your surroundings are made up of energy. The idea of you and your surroundings being made of energy is not an esoteric eastern idea. Western scientists also believe that our universe is made up of atoms and particles that are not fixed in form but are constantly changing and evolving.
So how do we link the idea of us being made of energy to our health and how does Reiki fit into this?
One of the main benefits of Reiki is its simplicity.
From a Usui System of Natural Medicine framework physical, mental, emotional and spiritual conditions arise when you are lacking in positive universal energy, or your energy is not flowing as efficiently as it could be.
Reiki helps restore you to balance because it allows your nervous system to relax and connects you to your natural state of being which is peaceful and joyful. A Reiki treatment can help you deal more effectively with any challenges you may be facing on a physical, mental, emotional and spiritual level.
