Let's go a little deeper into Reiki healing. It is not entirely easy to explain energy in words, Reiki speaks best for itself.

Below I have included an explanatory text from the United Reiki Association which I think gives a pretty good picture of Reiki's philosophy and its areas of use.

Reiki healing is a gentle and at the same time effective treatment method for, for example, pain and stress, anxiety and physical and mental tension. Reiki works with the body's natural healing processes and replenishes the energy store - a method with many uses in our modern society. Reiki in its current form comes from Japan, but has thousand-year-old roots in, among other places, Tibet.

Reiki is a form of healing - a word that today in many contexts is very loaded - but does not require any religious faith or conviction, neither for the practitioner nor for the person being treated. Reiki can be given and received by anyone, regardless of whether you are spiritually or scientifically inclined, and you don't have to "believe in healing" for it to work. Modern research on Reiki shows that the method is effective in a number of different contexts.

Reiki is today classified as rehabilitative health care by the Swedish Tax Agency. This means that you can use your health care allowance for Reiki.

How does Reiki work?
Reiki works on several levels at the same time, partly through the physical touch, which activates "feel-good hormones" in the body such as oxytocin, partly through the body's subtle energy system such as with acupuncture and acupressure.

There are also similarities with therapies such as the Rosen method, which involves painful memories being stored in the body in the form of physical tensions and blockages, and through touch the tensions are dissolved and the client can then let go of what caused the pain in the first place. Reiki healing is a holistic treatment method, which assumes that body and psyche are one whole. Therefore, the whole body is often treated, even if you have problems that are experienced as limited to a certain place.

What does Reiki mean?
Reiki is Japanese and consists of two words: rei, which means "universal" and ki, which means "life energy" and corresponds to chi in Chinese and prana in India. Universal life energy refers to the highest known energy level, which is then divided into "lower" energy levels in different contexts, such as the energy you work with in Tai Chi.

What can Reiki do for me?
Reiki relieves pain and dissolves tension, both physical and mental, lowers stress and increases well-being, but cannot replace conventional cancer care, surgery or psychiatric care. However, Reiki can be a valuable complement to these, as in, for example, the USA, Great Britain and France.

Trouble falling asleep, brain racing, sciatica, muscle aches, mental and physical tension; the list of areas where Reiki is helpful could be extended. Often our body and psyche have the solution to our problems, but have lost "access" to it. Reiki does not add anything new to the client, but helps the person to heal himself.

This does not mean that Reiki can cure everything. However, the increased well-being can make it easier to live with a severe illness and thus create a higher quality of life for the individual. Energy used to endure pain and anxiety is freed up to take care of the disease in a better way.

Many physical ailments have a psychological or emotional cause; aches and tensions are often caused by stress, sadness, worry and repressed emotions. Reiki works simultaneously on the physical and emotional planes, dissolving the tensions and releasing what once caused them. The feelings can then come to the surface so that you can process them. The deep relaxation Reiki provides helps the body heal itself.

What Reiki can achieve, of course, also depends on the cause of the problems. If sciatica is caused by a herniated disc, Reiki cannot "cure" this, but instead relieve the muscle tension that occurs in connection with the pain caused by the herniated disc, and thus reduce the pressure of the muscles on the sciatic nerve. The herniated disc is still there, but it's getting easier to live with. If it is instead so-called "false sciatica", which is caused solely by muscle tension that presses on the sciatic nerve, Reiki can be a completely sufficient treatment method to become symptom-free.

As said, Reiki cannot cure cancer, but a cancer patient can receive significant support by supplementing with Reiki. Both the disease and the treatment with its side effects are today associated with pain and the fear of dying.

With Reiki, the patient can be helped to reduce both anxiety and pain, thereby increasing their quality of life and having more energy left over to live with the disease and hopefully recover. In England, Reiki is used specifically for patients undergoing cancer treatment. In case of serious illness, you should always seek medical attention in the first instance. If you want to supplement with Reiki, you must always complete the treatment prescribed by the doctor.

Gokai - The Five Principles of Reiki

Reiki's founder, Mikao Usui, formulated five basic principles - Gokai - as a guide for personal and spiritual development. The first time you read or hear them, they may appear too general or mundane, but if you look at them more closely, you will find that in their simplicity they contain great wisdom without becoming specific in such a way as to contradict any beliefs, spiritual or scientific. Many Reiki practitioners repeat Gokai as a daily meditation.

Reiki is not a religion
Reiki is not a religion, but can be used as a tool for personal and spiritual development, whether you are a believer (regardless of religion) or a non-believer. In addition to giving yourself Reiki, there are also meditations and exercises that you can weave into your daily life.
