When someone undergoes a therapy which He / She is not aware about, It is very natural to have some ( …”a lot of”…) questions in mind but when these questions are carefully answered in proper, the person can start his/her treatment with ease. In this post, I have listed some Q’s & A’s which I have frequented across in my practice.

Q1: What is Reiki Therapy?

  • Reiki is a type of alternative medicine. Reiki means, Universal Energy, which flows from the universe itself.
  • In Reiki therapy, the belief is, that we are born with a unique immunity, meaning: our body has its own healing power and at that, we are pure, non-toxic.and our channels are opened.
  • But as we age, we are exposed to various toxins, impurities, stress etc. and all these factors leads to blockage of our channels. Hence, as a result, we get diseases/disorders namely mental, physical, or emotional.

Q2: What are Channels?

  • Channels are the Centers in our body (In Layman terms: just as Fan Regulators) and they control our bodily functions; Physical, Mental and Emotional.
  • Hence, it is of grave importance that they should be in proper balance.
  • Imbalance/Disturbance of Channels we will lead to ill-effects of our health (life).

Q3: If it is Universal, than how one can give it / receive it?

  • Every living creature constantly radiates different forms of energy. Hence, Energy flow between physical body and Universe is a continuous process. (For ex: Fresh morning breeze rejuvenates everyone, and the universal flow is so strong, that the recipient gets revitalized instantly.).
  • Reiki Master does not give/create any Reiki. Reiki is itself flowing in the universe. Consider Reiki Practitioner as a Pure Medium, which can channelize this energy to the patient.
  • Hence in Layman terms, we say, Reiki Practitioner gives Reiki and patient receives it.

Q 4: So, is it a systemic course?.

  • It is a systemic course and it, like any other system of treatment, also has stages which you have to go through.
  • After Stage 1 itself, person is able to heal oneself and also can treat others.
  • Stage 2 intensifies the system and enables one to give distant treatment.
  • And Stage 3 is divided in to A and B. After stage 3A one can become a Master but cannot give attunements. It is only after Stage 3B that, one is able to give attunements to others.

Q 5: Can anyone & everyone learn Reiki?

  • Yes, anyone can learn Reiki, but it takes time and lots of practice to channelize the energy and also it is upon practitioner to the extent he / she is able to do so.

Q 6: So how will you treat me? And what should I do to at the time of treatment?.

  • You need not do anything except relaxing yourself on the treatment table. I will be placing my hands on / or above few inches from the point which is to be treated and energy will channelize itself in your body.

Q 7: Will I feel some flow of Reiki in my body?

  • Well you may / or you may not possibly experience some sort of vibration, warmth or sleepiness. But if you do not experience anything, it does not mean you will not be benefited by Reiki. Benefits of Reiki will be for sure.

Q 8: What if I feel sleepy during the treatment session, should I sleep at that time?

  • Yes, sure. If you feel sleepy during the treatment session, it is a great sign because when Reiki relaxes your nerves/muscles, you would want to have a good sleep. In fact it is common spectacle in our practice.

Q 9: Is Reiki only for Acute illness or even Chronic diseases/disorders can be cured?

  • Reiki can cure Chronic, as well as Acute diseases. For cases, where Cure is very challenging, improvement to some extent is for sure.

Q 10: How long it will take for to see the result?

  • In Reiki therapy result depends upon 3 things in major e.g.
  1. Whether the Disease/Disorder is Acute or Chronic in nature.
  2. Its severity, and most importantly
  3. Body’s receptiveness towards Reiki flow.

Q 11: Does Reiki give long lasting result?

  • Yes, it does.

Q 12: Aha! So do you mean to say that my illness will never re-occur for life time?

  • Unless and until, imbalances are not created/occur in your lifetime environment, leading once again to the disorder condition, I would definitely say that it is possible to achieve complete cure by Reiki.

Q 13: Ok. Got it!. But will I have to consider any insignificant restriction in my food habits during Reiki?            

  • No. Never !. (But, if you are being treated for fever, it is best understood to refrain from Cold-natured food items)

Q 14: Do I need to stop my present treatment?

  • No need to restrict any treatment while undergoing Reiki Treatment. If any, Reiki will only have complimentary effects if taken along with other Treatments and improvement can be beyond expectation. But no side effects at all.

These are questions which I have been answering the most. Feel free to discuss/inquire about other questions/issue at ease.

I Duly appreciate  in advance, your feedback/suggestions/questions.

2012 in review


The WordPress.com stats helper monkeys prepared a 2012 annual report for this blog.

Here’s an excerpt:

The new Boeing 787 Dreamliner can carry about 250 passengers. This blog was viewed about 1,400 times in 2012. If it were a Dreamliner, it would take about 6 trips to carry that many people.

Acupressure and Reiki


As a Reiki therapist many times I have been asked this question: “Madam can I continue my current medication ? Will it affect the result of Reiki?

My one and only answer to this question is:  “No need to restrict any treatment while undergoing Reiki Treatment. If any, Reiki will only have complimentary effects if taken along with other Treatments and improvement can be beyond expectation. But no side affects at all”.

Another Complimentary Treatment working in unison with Reiki is Acupressure. Some of the similarities in Reiki and Acupressure are as follows : 1) To Treat the Person and not only Disease/Disorder. 2) Body and Mind are inseparable 3) Energy of 5 Elements/ Chi . 4) To help body regain its natural healing power 5) Release of Toxic matters from the body.

A notable difference is that acupressure has to apply some pressure on body for the treatment, whereas Reiki does not need to apply any pressure. Also Acupressure needs to be applied at specific points only whereas Reiki does not have that limitation. Following article provides good amount of information on Acupressure.

In my experience as a Reiki Therapist, I found it surprising for many people, when i was able to detect the hidden causes of their troubles/suffering, whether realized/unrealized by them.

For ex : When a patient was being treated for Intense Headache, during physical examination, disturbances were found in Solar Plexus. She was suffering constipation and that was the reason for headache.

Apart from these, during other treatments, many such other feelings of anxiety/fear/mood disturbances/emotional upsets/willingness or unwillingness for the session/ etc… were noticed.

The reason being,  in Reiki Therapy, it is the Recipient’s body itself, which draws the energy and the Reiki healer , hence , becomes eventual to the actual disturbances. Moreover, if the Recipient is unwilling for the treatment, Reiki itself stops flowing, hence reciprocating the feeling.

In this Modern Era, Majority of Diseases are caused by Stress. When it comes to Asthma ( a kind of psychosomatic disease), which can be caused due to many certain imbalances, Stress is one of the most aggravating factors for this Respiratory Disorder.

Asthma which is also known as Nervous Disease can be aggravated by Tensions and Sudden Emotional Shocks. Asthma sufferers have to be very careful in stressful situations. (Kind of : One feeding on the Other , a vicious cycle)

Previously , I have posted an article on Non-medical Treatment of : Asthma(3) and following is a very good follow-up article on the same subject.

Use of Reiki to cure psychosomatic diseases are on an increase.

In my experience as a Reiki Therapist, many people ask me, why do i need to have a Case-Taking Session and why do i need to examine their mental state along with their physical conditions ?

Also Many people are hesitant to go for Alternative Medicine, only for the reason that they do not want to discuss their “Emotions” with their Therapist.

Following article is a detailed explanation of all their queries about emotions and a detailed description of Organ and Disease relationship.

However, there are some differentiation’s with Chinese Medicine and the Authors Opinion.

But the theory of Organ and Emotions is beautifully linked.

If we read this article thoroughly, the concept of Psychosomatic Medicine and Body-Mind Theory will be easy to correlate and comprehend.

An abstract of the article is followed by Link to the Article.

THE ORGAN-EMOTION LINK
Element Metal Water Wood Fire Earth
Organ Lungs Kidney Liver Heart  Spleen
Harmful Anxiety, Fear Anger Joy, Shock Pensiveness,
Emotions Sorrow     Empathy
Qi Effect Constrict Drop Rise Scatter Knot
Positive Yi Zhi Ren Li Xin
Emotions (Integrity) (Wisdom) (Kindness) (Order)  (Trust)

Reiki Therapy can eliminate the impact of negative emotions on the mind and body, resulting into cure of diseases and disorders.

Abstract of the article.

“In the early 1980’s, Dr. John Zimmerman began a series of important studies on therapeutic touch, using a SQUID magnetometer at the University of Colorado School of Medicine in Denver. Zimmerman discovered that a huge pulsating biomagnetic field emanated from the hands of a TT( Therapeutic Touch) practitioner.

Confirmation of Zimmerman’s findings came in 1992, when Seto and colleagues, in Japan, studied practitioners of various martial arts and other healing methods. The “Qi emission” from the hands is so strong that they can be detected with a simple magnetometer consisting of two coils, of 80,000 turns of wire. Since then, a number of studies of QiGong practitioners have extended these investigations to the sound, light, and thermal fields emitted by healers.

It is not widely understood that “brain waves” are not confined to the brain, but actually spread throughout the body via the perineural system, the connective tissue sheathes surrounding all of the nerves. Dr. Robert O. Becker has described how this system, more than any other, regulates injury repair processes throughout the body. Hence the entire nervous system acts as an “antenna” for projecting the bio-magnetic pulsations that begin in the brain, specifically in the thalamus.”

Now-a-days more and more people are flocking to Reiki Therapist for their physical diseases and disorders.

At the same time, Benefits of Reiki Therapy are now considered among mental health practitioners and people with mental disorders also.

In my experience as a Reiki Therapist, I have achieved good results in treating clinical depression, attention disorders, anxiety and panic disorders and even in cases of mental developmental delay with Reiki. Moreover, it is to be noted that where complete cure is not possible, even remarkable achievements helps us sail the way.
