Reiki as we all have heard commonly is a hands laying technique to heal self and others. Animals and humans have always needed to be touched in times of pain as well as pleasure. The Reiki healing is given by keeping hands of the Reiki practitioner at certain predefined positions and additionally those points where the intuition of the Reiki practitioner guides. Reiki is characterized by Reiki sensations in the hands of the Reiki practitioner.
We have all seen a magnet; the magnet has a magnetic field which can be felt though not seen. The magnet and the magnetic field are inseparable. If any object is introduced in the magnetic field the magnet is impacted, vice versa if the magnet is disturbed in any way the magnetic field also shows an impact. Similarly the human body is the magnet and the corresponding energy body (auric body) is the magnetic field. It is absolutely imperative to nourish and take care of both the physical and the auric body. Just like the magnet and its field the human body and auric body are inseparable.
The physical body needs physical life force that comes through food, water, air and rest. The energy body needs spiritual energy to sustain. Since every element in the universe has a physical body and a corresponding auric body. Hence Reiki, which is spiritual energy.
Reiki is the cosmic life force flowing in and around us. Reiki can be given to everything/anything- living or nonliving, past events, future events. Reiki can be used to treat self and others. Reiki heals at all levels being physical, mental, emotional, spiritual and karmic. Reiki is inherent in all .Reiki is known to balance at all levels. Reiki can be done in combination with any known medical therapy. Reiki gives immense asymptotic relief and finally causative relief when given regularly.
