Reiki Energy Healing in Cincinnati

Reiki can assist with wellness at every level of our being, including:

  • Pain relief.
  • Better sleep.
  • Enhanced relaxation.
  • Removing energy blockages.
  • Better immunity and vitality.
  • Lifting the emotions and greater spiritual insight.

Reiki can be defined as a spiritual healing system that is based on simple, non-dogmatic principles of Classical Chinese Medicine, Taoism, and Buddhist teachings. It is not a medical therapy, or a religion, although it does address our spiritual nature.

Reiki also employs a technique of hands-on chi energy healing known in modern times as medical chi gong, but it is generally far less structured than medical chi gong in the way that it is generally taught. There are many reasons for this, but the main one is that Reiki was not meant to be a medical treatment as such, and its origins, and the way it has been passed on precludes the inclusion of a complex treatment system like medical chi gong.

The founder of Reiki, Mikao Usui, developed Reiki in Japan around 1900. It was meant to be a simple system that could easily be taught to others, but one that had a great deal of depth if one were to practice it regularly. In this way, it would promote spiritual, emotional, mental, and physical balance, and thereby support good health at all levels of being. Many find this to be true today, and Reiki has grown worldwide, and it also has a great deal of variation in the way that it is taught and practiced.

Reiki sessions are available by appointment in Cincinnati at locations in Northside and Blue Ash, Glendale, and Mason, and can also be done at your home or business. The initial appointment consists of an interview that includes questions that help the process of determining your Five Element energetic make-up, and a way to proceed. The initial session is usually 90 to 120 minutes long. The session itself is one hour of that, and the rest is interview and dialogue. Successive session appointments are usually ninety minutes, and this includes time for dialogue before and after the session.

Reiki is performed with the recipient on a massage table, and fully clothed, except for shoes. The Five Element technique addresses areas where energetic support is indicated based on the initial interview and ongoing dialogue. There are a number of hand positions, which are administered at specific points on the body for several minutes each. On some hand positions, a light form of acupressure is used to facilitate chi movement, when needed. The session also allows for the recipient to draw in needed chi energy through universal life force. This universal life force does not come from the practitioner, who is merely a facilitator. The session form varies, depending on the needs of the recipient.

Reiki as a system is not about trying to force change, or impose anything. It is about creating the “safe space” internally which assists in letting go of resistance, and allowing the natural changes and energy movement that happens in our life. In this way, we are more in touch with our whole being, from body to spirit, and tend to cling less to unwanted conditions over time. Many report having greater clarity, and an easier time with situations and conditions that were formerly more difficult.  Many have reported states of relaxation that are more profound then any ever experienced, and shifts of awareness as well.
