What is Reiki?
Reiki (pronounced “ray key”) is a form of energy healing, that originated from Japanese culture. Reiki can help to address physical and emotional imbalances, by enabling the body and spirit to become harmonized.
The Healing Arts
Incorporating a healing therapy can be very beneficial as you move towards whole body health.
A study was done with 22 patients; 13 with Irritable Bowel Syndrome, six with Ulcerative Colitis, and three with Crohn's disease. This study was created to analyze the perception of each participant following a course of healing therapy, and the data was collected via an interview.
Each participant received a 30 minute session of a healing treatment for a duration of 5 weeks, administered by practicing members of the ‘Healing Trust’. The type of therapy used for this study was administered from the practicing member to the patient via their hands usually at a distance of 10-12 inches above the body, with some light touching as well. After treatment patients reported improvement in their symptoms, pain reduction and better GI function. Take a look at the table for more information.
Our bodies can be characterized as a unique machine that works together to maintain a state of “homeostasis” or balance. Everyone is different in that their responses to these imbalances can cause a series of emotional and physical stress related states of being.
