What is Reiki
The International Center for Reiki Training outlines that Reiki is a Japanese technique for stress reduction and relaxation that also promotes healing.
Our bodies are energetic in nature. Our bones resonate at lower frequencies while our blood, thoughts etc. vibrate at higher frequencies. This magnetic pulse is known as a biomagnetic
field. In Eastern traditions, this pulse is also known as Ki or Prana. It is interesting to note that scientists have found that measuring the magnetic fields of the body with magneto cardiograms and magnetoencephalograms often provide a more accurate indication of what is happening in the body than traditional electrical measurements. When a practitioner is performing a healing session, the energy that emanates from their hands produce a significantly larger biomagnetic
reading (7-10Hz – Theta and Alpha range) than a nonpractitioner. These frequencies are associated with physical healing. Contentment, relaxation, decreased feelings of stress, fear, and anxiety as well as a reduction and in some cases, elimination of physical illnesses and persistent conditions are common observations from clients after a Reiki session. There are countless case studies and anecdotal research verifying the effects of Reiki sessions.
