Reiki is a spiritual healing art with origins in Japan. The word "reiki" comes from the Japanese word "Rei," which means universal life, and "Ki", which means energy. Reiki is not affiliated with any particular religion or religious practice. Reiki is the life energy that flows through all living things.
Reiki, as it is practiced in the U.S. today, dates back to the teachings of Mikao Usui in the early 1920's in Japan. Usui traveled widely in Japan during the last four years of his life, offering his spiritual teachings to more than two thousand beginning students, but trained only sixteen as Reiki masters.
According to Mari Alfaro, a reiki master, Reiki can help alleviate stress, promote restful sleep, healing, and relaxation. Relaxation alone can be beneficial for the mind, body, and soul. For instance, relaxation can help release painful muscle tension, relieve anxiety, and depression. Additionally, when a person is able to relax the body can heal itself.
When undergoing a reiki treatment the recipient is asked to lay down, fully clothed, on a table. Little or no pressure is applied to the body during a treatment. Reiki healing is so adaptable that it can be received in almost any setting, a chair, hospital bed, or even through casts and bandages. While recipient is still and focused, the reiki practitioner will place his/her hands above the recipient's head, neck, shoulders, chest, stomach, and limbs. Reiki practitioners usually follow a series of hand positions but can place their hands anywhere the recipient feels pain or discomfort.
The teachings say that the universal energy flows not from the practitioner but through the practitioner to the recipient. The recipient receives the amount of energy that is needed to bring the body and mind into balance.
Though reiki techniques appear simple, the effects can feel profound. Most people experience deep relaxation during a reiki session, though others feel slight tingling, pulsing, warmth, comfort, and some even fall asleep.

I appreciated it when you mentioned that a Reiki treatment can help one to alleviate stress while promoting healing and relaxation for someone who is dealing with a lot of pressure. My wife just told me last night that she is stressed out because of work and she might just resign if her boss keeps on increasing her workloads. I will suggest to her going for a Reiki treatment to reduce her stress and relax her mind so she can feel better.

It's interesting to know that practicing Reiki can help a person alleviate stress and promote good sleep. This could be applicable to my mother who spends her entire day worrying about trivial things. I'll try to look for places where she can learn about Reiki healing and see if it would work for her.

It's valuable that you mention that Reiki can provide relief to people who struggle with anxiety. I've been feeling very anxious due to my divorce for the past month, so I'm considering trying a Reiki session. I'm going to see if there's a reputable spiritual school in my area that does Reiki sessions.

It's interesting to know that Reiki sessions can actually be done in any setting even through casts and bandages because of its adaptability. My cousin mentioned about this earlier, because he said he wanted to try this treatment for his shoulders. It appears that he had an accident yesterday that caused pain in that part of his body which is why he wanted to try a treatment like that to avoid the possibility of surgery.
I never took into account the fact that in-person Reiki sessions can help relieve stress and promote sleep, healing, and relaxation at the same time. In that case, I will book a session like that for myself this coming weekend once I find a facility I can go to. It's something that I might need to help me with my sleep, because I started having insomnia due to feeling anxious when the pandemic happened.

Are there actual physical centers or free institutions where people can gather and learn and heal together? Similar to a church or mosque

I was captivated when you mentioned that reiki healing can be conducted in nearly any setting. My friend wants to get herself energy healing jewelry. I should advise her to look for a store that sells a wide selection of energy healing jewelry.
