What is a Reiki Massage?

Reiki is a spiritual technique for relaxation and healing. Reiki is based on the idea of a “life force energy” that flows through us and keeps us alive. If one’s life force energy is low then the person is more likely to get sick, and if the life force energy is high, the person is healthy and happy.

Reiki is a therapy that makes use of the seven major Chakras, or energy centres, of the human body. These Chakras are the primary channels through which energy flows in our body. Proper flow of energy is essential for our well-being – be it physical, mental, emotional or spiritual. Experiencing an ailment, stress or sickness indicates that one or more of the chakras may be blocked. Reiki massage healers believe that they have the knowledge to unblock the chakras and restore the energy flow in the body, thereby healing the suffering person.

Reiki Massage

A Reiki massage healer does not make use of any medicine or chemicals, but only blowing, touching and tapping techniques. Many persons who’ve undergone Reiki healing report that the treatment feels like a wonderful glowing radiance flowing through and around them. The beneficial effects reported include relaxation and feelings of peace, security and well-being.

For a Reiki massage, one needs to lie down in a comfortable spot and relax. The healer then performs certain hand positions that are directed towards the head, neck, body, limbs as well as the feet. The average time for a session is between 60-90 minutes. Reiki practitioners assert that for Reiki therapy to have lasting results, the client must also take responsibility of the treatment, and play an active part in it. It must include an active commitment to improve oneself in order for it to be a complete system of healing.

Special kinds of massage tables designed specifically for Reiki Massage are available. These massage tables are designed with the intention that the Reiki practitioner will be spending more time sitting during the therapy, than a regular massage therapist would. Reiki tables therefore have table braces and areas for placing legs comfortably. Also, Reiki massage tables do not have adjustable headrests, since Reiki massages do not involve massaging the client’s head the way regular massages do.

Reiki massage has helped many in dealing with their daily stress and negativity that drains the energy out of the body. Reiki massage has helped people regain their grounding and begin to feel at complete ease with the world around them. Reiki practices are about a hundred years old and more and more people are getting to realize the true benefits of this spiritual system of healing. I would urge you to try experiencing the benefits of Reiki massage yourself, and regain control over your life and happiness. After all, who doesn’t want to lead a happy and energetic life, full of love and positivity?
