How Reiki Works
Usui Shiki Ryoho
Usui System of Reiki Healing
Reiki is the Universal Life Energy which sustains and restores us, bringing us back to optimum health and balance. When the body becomes depleted of this energy and/or if there has been injury or trauma inflicted upon the body, mind and/or emotions, imbalances and blocked energy begins to manifest. In Reiki, we find these imbalances and energetic blocks to be the root cause for ailments and conditions.
Reiki works like "cause and effect" as it discovers and works to heal the root "cause" of our ailment or condition whether on the mental, emotional, physical and/or spiritual levels, any unwanted "effect" (symptom, ailment or condition) begins to diminish or gets removed. At this point the body goes back into balance and self-healing starts to activate.
Throughout our lives, from infancy to adulthood, we accumulate and bottle up (suppress) blocked energy. At some point in our lives we are unable to contain all the blocked energy we have stored so it begins to "leak out" and manifest into some unwelcomed symptom/ailment or condition, this is what Reiki addresses to heal.
Reiki discovers, dislodges and untangles these energetic blocks as our energy begins to flow uninterrupted and the body goes back into balance. At this point, wellbeing on the mental, emotional, physical and spiritual levels becomes possible.
