Reiki: An ancient healing practice for mind, body, and soul | The Holistic Coach House

Are you searching for a way to find inner peace and stability in your life? Reiki (pronounced RAY-kee) is an ancient practice that can be used as a natural remedy to help people develop self-awareness and relaxation. Through its unique holistic healing power, Reiki has been known to reduce stress, improve concentration and mental clarity, plus promote physical well-being. If you're intrigued by the idea of utilizing this powerful energy source in order to improve your life - read on! In this article, we'll explore what Reiki actually is and how it can benefit you.


Reiki is an ancient form of healing that dates back to the 22nd century in Japan. It was discovered by Dr. Mikao Usui, a Japanese Buddhist monk, who called it the Usui Reiki System of Natural Healing. Reiki centres around the concept of energy and life force, with the goal of removing energy blocks and providing relief for physical pain and emotional distress. The practice involves lying on one's back, with hands placed along specific energetic pathways in order to allow the practitioner's own energy to align with that of their body and promote relaxation and healing. Over time, Dr. Usui's system has evolved as practitioners refine their understanding of how its principles interact with other forms of traditional healing modalities. Today, there are several different branches or variations on this powerful form of healing practiced around the world in a variety of cultures and spiritual traditions.


Here are some of the benefits of Reiki:

1. Relaxation

One of the primary benefits of Reiki is relaxation. When our bodies are stressed, they produce a hormone called cortisol. Cortisol is a stress hormone that can have negative effects on our health, including high blood pressure, weight gain, and anxiety. Reiki can help to reduce stress and promote relaxation by reducing the levels of cortisol in the body.


2. Pain Relief

Reiki has also been shown to be effective for pain relief. A study published in the Journal of Alternative and Complementary Medicine found that Reiki was effective at reducing pain in a group of participants who were suffering from chronic pain. The study found that those who received Reiki treatments had significantly lower levels of pain than those who did not receive any treatments.


3. Improved Sleep

Reiki can also help to improve sleep quality. A study published in the Biological research for nursing found that participants who received Reiki treatments slept better than those who did not receive any treatments. The study found that those who received Reiki treatments had significantly lower levels of insomnia and fatigue than those who did not receive any treatments.


4. Reduced Anxiety

Reiki has also been shown to be effective for reducing anxiety. A study published in the British Medical Journal found that participants who received Reiki treatments had significantly lower levels of anxiety than those who did not receive any treatments. The study found that those who received Reiki treatments had significantly lower levels of stress and anxiety symptoms than those who did not receive any treatments.


5. Decreased Depression

The study found that those who received Reiki treatments had significantly lower levels of stress and anxiety symptoms than those who did not receive any treatment.


How do I become a Reiki practitioner?

Becoming a Reiki practitioner requires going through a relatively simple process of attunement and practice. To become an accredited Reiki practitioner, you must first receive your attunement from a qualified Reiki Master. This is done in a series of private sessions or a group class - the time and number of sessions depend on the individual Master's preference. During the session, the Reiki Master will transfer the necessary energy to open up your spiritual channels so that you can channel healing Reiki energy into others. Once you have been attuned by your Reiki Master, it’s important to establish regular practice sessions with yourself and with others who are already practitioners.


In addition to regular practice routines, it’s important for prospective Reiki practitioners to be knowledgeable about the history of this form of energy healing – its roots in traditional Japanese culture, its development within western culture over time, and how modern-day practitioners use it today. You should also familiarize yourself with the various levels within this field – from basic level 1 courses all the way through master-level courses – as well as any other additional materials related to advanced topics such as emotional clearing or chakra healing. Finally, make sure that whatever course you choose is accredited by reputable associations such as The Complementary Medical Association (CMA).


By taking all these steps before beginning your journey into becoming a Reiki practitioner, you will ensure that you receive all the necessary knowledge and resources needed to be successful in this field. This includes setting up practice rooms in your home or office if needed, finding potential clients interested in receiving treatments from you, and connecting with other professionals who can provide support during difficult times. With dedication and commitment, following these guidelines will help you get started on your path towards becoming an experienced Reiki practitioner in no time!

Deciding to become a Reiki practitioner is a life-changing step. Not only will you learn how to perform this energy medicine technique on others, but you'll also experience its many benefits first-hand.
