Reiki the Art of Healing

Reiki: Many people have started believing in alternative medicines. Some alternative medicine practices are not based on science and are based on a belief system. These practices are “known” to heal the mind, body, and soul, depending on the treatment. One of the many alternative medicine practices includes Reiki.

What Is Reiki?

Reiki is based on the belief that the body is surrounded by energy. It originated in Japan and is based on the belief of a universal energy. Every individual is surrounded by this energy. The art is not a practice; rather it is a holistic system that is much more than refined to a one-time visit. It is a spiritual healing journey that becomes a way of life. It promotes love, acceptance and cooperation among everyone, regardless of age, gender, background, religion etc. It is not based on religion, culture, heritage nor ideology; it is the belief that the body’s energy has the ability to heal oneself spiritually, physically and mentally. Although there is no evidence supporting its effectiveness, it is gaining popularity.

How Does it Work?

As mentioned earlier, Reiki is focused on love, acceptance, and cooperation. It promotes peace among diverse groups. It brings people together. As the bond and the number of individuals in a group increases, their energy grows as well. This energy created can help heal others using a technique called palm healing. Using this technique, the practitioner will either put his palms on, or above, the individual. The energy in the palm motivates the energy to heal the body itself.

Benefits of Reiki

There is no factual evidence that palm healing or transfer of energy has healed anyone. However, those who believe in the are will tell you differently. Reiki can help heal an individual on different levels, including mind, body and soul. This means it can help emotional, physical and spiritual healing. It has many benefits, including the following:

  • Relaxes the body and reduces stress

  • It stimulates the body’s immune system and encourages the body to heal itself

  • It is said to aid spiritual growth and create inner peace

  • It helps reduce depression and improve emotional well-being

  • Helps treat:

    • Arthritis

    • Migraines

    • Sciatica

    • Chronic Fatigue

    • Pain

  • Reiki is also said to help with post-surgery recovery

Reiki is about creating a balance within the body to raise it to a state of well-being.

Side Effects

Given that there is no physical alterations or medication requirements, Reiki has no side effects.


Alternative medicines are based on belief just as much as they are based on historical practices. Reiki is a form of self-healing that comes from Japan. It is a principle of creating inner peace and balance. It is a holistic practice based on the idea of a universal energy that can heal the mind, body, and soul. Reiki encourages the body’s energy to stimulate self-healing.
