Reiki is a Japanese word meaning Universal Life Force Energy. In Chinese
this energy is called Chi as in Tai Chi. The origin of Reiki can be traced
back to ancient Tibet, thousands of years ago. This technique was re-discovered
in the mid 1800s by Dr. Mikao Usui of Japan and brought to the U.S. by
Mrs. Hawayo Takata of Hawaii in 1930s.
Reiki is a non-invasive technique. There is no manipulation of muscles;
there is no need to remove clothing. Healing can be done on one spot where
tension or pain is concentrated or on the entire body to balance and energize
the complete system. For a full treatment, the practitioner merely places
his or her hands on specific areas on both sides of the body. Most will
feel the hands of the practitioner get warm or even cool depending on
what is needed. As in therapeutic touch, Reiki healing helps to balance
the energy surrounding the body but in addition Reiki helps to balance
the energy within the body and supply it with additional life force energy
as needed. The life force energy supplied is not the practitioners.
The practitioner acts as a conduit bringing the energy in from its Source.
As with electricity, the wires and overhead lines are bringing electricity
to where it is needed. The practitioner would be considered the wires
and overhead lines to bring in the Life Force Energy the body needs. Because
the practitioner is not using his or her own energy, Reiki can be used
for self-healing as well as healing others.
Reiki does not take the place of medical help when illness warrants it
but Reiki helps to enhance and complement regular medical services. Reiki
is one part of an integrated healing or wellness program.
In times of stress or illness, Reiki can speed healing, and even the side
effects of chemotherapy. Reiki can help strengthen the immune system,
reduce pain and stress, relax muscles and help loosen joints as well as
increase the feeling of well being.
Reiki is just one of the techniques gaining wider acceptance both with
the general public and the medical establishment. Some hospitals are incorporating
Reiki into their roster of patient services, often with their own Reiki-trained
physicians, nurses and support staff. Clinical Trials are now underway
sponsored by the National Center for Complementary and Alternative Medicine
investigating the use of Reiki as an approach to improve well-being for
patients with advanced AIDS and in another study to determine if Reiki
will improve glycemic control and cardiac autonomic function in diabetic
patients with painful neuropathy.
Reiki classes and
sessions (as well as Healing Circles) are mainly conducted in the area
of Pipestone in SW Minnesota by Rev. Elizabeth McCabe who will travel
to other areas of MN and SD if arrangements are made for groups, etc.
Reiki Clinics (also called Shares) are held periodically. These give an
opportunity to experience Reiki in a shorter session for a good will donation.
They also give practitioners a chance to work with other practitioners
and receive a session themselves in a group setting.
If someone is unable to attend these clinics or experience Reiki in their
own area and are in need of help, arrangements can be made for distant
healing or their name can be included in a healing circle. Contact Elizabeth
by email or phone for more information.
