Reiki Energy Healing Techniques as an Alternative to Conventional Medicine
Some patients don’t find the satisfaction and assistance they need within the realm of western medicine. While there are plenty of therapies, prescriptions, and surgical procedures available, there are times when these treatments fall short, leaving an individual feeling helpless or frustrated by the lack of healing results. In these situations, the person will often become open to pursuing alternative treatment, including energy healing techniques such as Reiki.
Reiki is an energy healing modality designed to heal on multiple levels including the mental, emotional, spiritual, and physical bodies of a being. Reiki treatments are known to reduce stress, and bring about a state of peace and relaxation for the recipient. Reiki is an energy healing technique that can be practiced as a hands-on healing therapy or as a distance therapy when the Reiki practitioner and the person receiving the healing are not present in the same physical location.
When practiced as a hand-on energy healing technique at Lightsong, the Reiki practitioner may place their hands either just slightly above, or directly on the body of the person receiving the treatment. During the healing session, the Reiki practitioner allows positive life-force energy from a spiritual plane to move through their body into the recipient of the treatment. While doing this, there are specific hand placements made by the Reiki practitioner to aid in the healing of particular situations and conditions.
When Reiki and some other energy medicine techniques such as shamanism practices are done remotely the practitioner and the recipient can still set up a connection and share a positive energy that promotes healing. Despite the distance, it is important that the two people have a link with one another. With modern technology, distance healing can be done over the phone or even with a face-to-face connection over the Internet.
No matter if the healing is done at a distance or in a hands-on manner, Reiki only involves the transmission of positive energy so there are no negative side effects; most people end their session with a true sense of well being.
