The Healing Art of Reiki

By CNY Healing Arts Published on

Reiki - CNY Healing Arts CenterReiki is a form of therapy which originated in Japan for the purpose of stress reduction and relaxation.  Reiki is comprised of two words: “Rei” meaning higher power or universal and “Ki” which means life force energy.  This Eastern art relies on hand placement along different areas of the body which help spiritually guide one’s life force as a form of healing.

Reiki is an excellent therapy to use when you’re dealing with life’s challenges or undergoing a difficult time in your life such as infertility, an illness, difficulty with a relationship, or just struggling with emotions.  This radiant healing can bring about peace, harmony and a sense of balance from within.

Health Benefits of Reiki Therapy:

  • Helps the body to heal
  • Reduces insomnia and helps improve sleep patterns
  • Removes toxins
  • Reduces blood pressure
  • Relives pain associated with injuries and chronic issues

Reiki differs from massage in that the therapists hands aren’t necessarily on the skin, they can be just slightly above it.

Reiki can help to give you a better outlook on life by diminishing negativity and improving your ability to see positive insights in situations.  It has a positive effect on the chemicals within the brain, and helps to promote healing throughout the entire body.  Each area of the body has its own energy and can become blocked due to emotions and thoughts, Reiki therapy helps to free these blocked areas.

This form of healing can be combined with other modalities such as yoga, meditation, massage, or acupuncture to further heal the body and the mind.  For more information or to schedule a Reiki session, contact the CNY Healing Arts location nearest you:
