What is Reiki?

Reiki is a natural healing technique that provides relief and harmony through the laying on of hands. This Japanese healing method has been known for thousands of years in the East and is increasingly being used in Western therapeutic practices. Where does it come from and what are its benefits? Discover the answers with Achab, Reiki practitioner in Brussels and French Polynesia.

What is Reiki?

Reiki is an ancient art and spiritual science. Originating in Tibet, it was rediscovered in Japan at the end of the 19th century by Dr Mikao Usui. Reiki has no connection with any religion, sect, spiritual movement or other. It is an absolutely natural healing technique that calls upon the Universal Energy, which animates and sustains all life. Reiki is very simple. It works by laying hands on different parts of the body. The energy centres restore vital energy to all organs. It brings harmony and balance to the physical, emotional, mental and spiritual bodies. Reiki is a practice designed to reconnect the energy of qi with our inner life force to awaken our self-healing mechanisms.

What are the benefits of Reiki?

According to practitioners and researchers (mostly English-speaking), the practice of Reiki has been proven in:

· the reduction of pain, stress and anxiety ;

· the reduction of nausea;

· improved sleep quality;

· improvement of healing after burns;

· therapeutic support for people in postoperative care

· improving the quality of life of people suffering from stroke or cancer (reduction of fatigue and pain related to care).

Reiki dissolves blockages, brings us back to the centre of our being and allows us to become more grounded and anchored. It brings us back to earth. It also allows us to become a channel for the free flow of energy. During a treatment, the Reiki practitioner does not use his own energy but becomes a channel for the Universal Vital Energy. This inexhaustible and unlimited energy resides in the heart of every being.
