The Power Of Touch

Hollywood over several decades has subtly exposed the world to Reiki whether you know it or not. Whether it was Starman with Jeff Bridges and Karen Allen, The Karate Kid, The Matrix, Elektra, Hellboy, or numerous other blockbuster films depicting the power of human contact, Reiki has been a Hollywood co-star. What appeared miraculous on the big screen, is  within the grasp of anyone willing to devote time and energy to his or her own self growth and awareness.

Reiki is a complimentary medicine that incorporates the use of universal energy. A trained Reiki practitioner is able to transfer universal  energy through his or her hands and allow that energy to help assist the client. I have personally seen Reiki alleviate pain, lower blood pressure, stop or reduce tremor, calm a person down, or rejuvenate someone feeling fatigued.

Reiki is very much like explaining an emotionally moving photograph, a sunset, a song, or a work of art; you can talk about it all you want but not until you experience it for yourself can you fathom the raw power that it has to offer.

A standard Reiki session can last anywhere from 15 minutes to 1.5 hours. The client either sits in a chair or lies on a massage table, fully clothed, as the practitioner lightly touches the energetic centers of the body. Clients will usually fall into a deep refreshing sleep and wake feeling better than when they arrived.

I was a skeptic, about 13 years ago, but I tried it. Since then, I have taken classes and worked on hundreds of clients and seen astounding results. I am now a Reiki Master but I continue to learn. For me, Reiki has given me back parts of my life that I might never have gotten back. Parkinson’s patients, especially one who has had it for over 20 years, aren’t  supposed to get better according to the  medical community. Reiki is the only explanation.

It’s not magic nor is it surgery.  Reiki is a practice that you can learn to do yourself or find a practitioner who can help address your issues. I encourage you to explore what Reiki can do for you.

  1. I totally agree; tai chi is very similar to the Reiki practice. I love them both, equally, I have to say:)) Great post and I look forward to sharing more with you:))

  2. My husband has been going through the Parkinson’s experience for the past 8 years. I am a Reikimaster/Teacher and a PanguShengong Teacher/Practitioner. My husband is active, energetic, participates in biking, golfing, hiking. We are blessed with joyful days as we share the energy of Reiki and Pangu. All those to whom I give reiki/pangu sessions feel less stressed and more hopeful after having a session.
    I know that it works. We live it every day.
