Reiki has become more popular in recent years, but few people actually know what it entails. It helps to break it down into the two Japanese words that make Reiki. The first is “rei” which translates to “wisdom of a higher power.” The second word, “ki,” means “life force energy.” When these words combine to form “Reiki,” we have “spiritually guided life force energy.”
The Reiki energy is felt as subtle heat by the receiver. Reiki energy
Reiki is a technique that originated in Japan to reduce stress and promote relaxation. It is based on an idea that there is a “life energy force” that is unseen yet imperative in that it gives us life. When one’s “life energy force” is low, one will feel stressed and be more prone to illnesses; when it is high, one will feel peaceful and healthy.
Many people believe that the life force flows through the physical body through pathways which are often referred to as meridians, nadis, and chakras. Life force also flows around the body in a field known as the aura. It nourishes all the cells and organs allowing them to perform their functions. If the flow is disrupted, the functioning power is diminished, and the body slowly breaks down. The life force is something that is seen physically but responds to feelings and thoughts. When a person accepts negative thoughts into their mind, either consciously or unconsciously, it slows down the life force.
Reiki Precepts for Daily Living:
The negativity attaches itself to the energy field. Reiki helps to remove the negative energy which allows it to be replaced with positive energy.
Benefits of Reiki
Reiki can even help to charge the body with positive energy. By raising the vibration levels in the energy field and pathways, negativity breaks down and falls away. The vibrations also create positive energy in the process. It may help to have a more conventional example. For most people, it is hard to get up and exercise.
However, once someone starts moving, it is easier to keep going. Once the negativity is removed and replaced with some positivity, it is easier to promote the increase of positivity. Reiki clears, heals, and straightens the pathways for energy to allow the life force to function in a natural and healthy manner.
Reiki Therapy in NYC
The Reiki therapy itself is extremely calming. It feels as though a glowing radiance is flowing through and around the patient. As it treats the body, mind, and spirit, the potential benefits are countless. However, the feelings of peace, well-being, and serenity are above all the most sought after. Holistic Chiropractor, Dr. Louis Granirer, provides new patients a free consultation for Reiki healing.
Even though Reiki comes from spiritual backgrounds, it does not have a religious affiliation that excludes newcomers. Someone who wishes to have Reiki performed on them does not have to convert their beliefs; it is not even a requirement to believe in Reiki. Its powers are not a type of “mind over matter.” It is an objective, effective healing solution held in high regard by a vast array of people.
The founder of the Reiki system as a natural healing method, Dr. Mikao Usui, followed that no religious connotation is attached to Reiki, but he did teach ethical ideals and specific thought processes that will enhance the benefits of its use. The ideas are ones that are nearly universal: do not harm one another, do not spread falsehoods, help each other when capable, take care of nature, etc.
However, the thought processes that Dr. Usui taught are a bit more specific to Reiki. He believed that if the therapy was done in conjunction with a spiritual experience by the patient, it would be more effective. He recommended that the patient pray or repeat a chant during Reiki. Dr. Usui wanted the patients to have a significant, active role. They must decided to improve themselves before Reiki can have its full effect.
Also, for the results to be lasting, the patient must accept the responsibility for their body as theirs, not that of the Reiki therapist. Despite what an individual believes or how active of a role they chose to take, there are some undeniable benefits of Reiki healing. Of course, the experience is relaxing to ease the stress and tension in the moment, but these benefits continue even after the session ends.
Dr. Mikao Usui
The Father of Reiki
When the body is free from stress, it can heal itself more easily. The healing powers can help with arbitrary injuries as well as chronic conditions such as headaches, asthma, or eczema.
Reiki is also known for its ability to remove toxins from the body. This can include toxins that enter the body through daily life, but it also includes toxins from drug abuse and addiction or therapies such as chemotherapy. Many former and current addicts use Reiki to ease the pains of withdrawal. When all these benefits are taking place in the body, the patient sleeps better, has lower blood pressure, and an overall feeling of wellbeing.

"I came to the Holistic Chiropractic Center of New York after a friend insisted that I see him for general body aches and pains in my neck, shoulders, and low back.
I had also been suffering from unexplained fatigue for four months.
After three visits my pain started to decrease, and with the combination of the chiropractic adjustment, and Reiki Therapy.
I felt more energy and overall much better. I went for treatment for about one month consistently, and my pain and fatigue is much much less and I feel great.
Dr. Lou is truly a special healer that is a rare find!"
