So, what is Reiki? Is it the one with stones?

Updated: Oct 20, 2021

When people find out I am a 'Reiki Master', I am often asked 'What is Reiki?' and 'Is it the therapy with stones?' Reiki is the therapy with a Reiki Healer's hands - no stones involved (the therapy with stones is 'hot stones therapy')

For me, Reiki is a highly positive energy that transforms lives - on a physical, emotional and spiritual level. It is a Japanese word for 'universal life force energy'. which is an ancient form of energy healing and is channelled by a Reiki healer, usually through their hands. The Reiki healer would place their hands above or on the body and apply the energy to the body. It may sound far-fetched, but if you really think about it, we are all made up of energy. As Reiki is a high-vibrational energy, it can penetrate all our energy fields working on our mental, physical, emotional and spiritual levels.

Reiki healing is great for relaxation, reducing stress and promotes healing on a physical, emotional and spiritual level. My favourite Reiki benefit is that it helps you deal with everyday life in a more positive and calm way. You start thinking and feeling more positively allowing you to feel more happiness and peace within.

Rachel, ICT implementer, says:

"In the most stressful year any of us have had, I think Chia's Reiki sessions have really helped with my sometimes chaotic mindset, and this has been amazing in helping me cope.

I always feel so much calmer and a real sense of peace after a Reiki session"

Remote Reiki:

Even more amazing, being energy, as well as taking place in person, I can send Reiki across the World and even via Zoom or MS Teams.

In a Reiki session, the Reiki works on our energy centres, known as chakras. We all have 7 major chakras, which are all associated with different parts of the body and your emotional wellbeing. For example, your heart chakra in the centre of the body is associated with the heart, lungs, thymus, love, compassion, self-acceptance and relationships.

What I love about Reiki is it is safe, non-invasive and very intuitive. You do not have to tell the Reiki healer anything, Reiki can go to where it is needed. So, if you have been going through work stress, a relationship break-up, whatever it is, Reiki will work on your highest good. Reiki is for everyone, whether you love healing therapies or are a little curious about energy.

If you would like to experience this positive and amazing energy for yourself, sign up for the Reiki Chia community and I will give you access to a Gifted Reiki session #GiftedReikiChiaSession #Reiki #Reikihealing
