Default Does reiki work?

I was wondering if anyone had tried reiki. I know people who have had it done for pets, which I can understand since we can't ask what's bothering them. It would be nice to think we could find out this way, but is it just charming, wishful thinking.

Personally I've never tried it, but I'd be willing to do so. I've not seen any scientific reports as to it's effectiveness, but I think it must have relaxation benefits which will help the body to heal itself.

I would never suggest relying on reiki or any other alternative medicine at the expense of conventional medicine though.

First of all can you tell me what exactly reiki is? And what part of the bodies is it worked on?

I've heard coworkers discussing it. I think it involves focusing energy on specific parts of the body to heal or reduce stress.

Yes, I think it's all to do with directing energy flow. But I know very little about it really.

I watched someone have an impromptu session when I was out yesterday. Someone came over faint & when they felt well enough someone else gave him a reiki session to 'rebalance' him. It just seemed to involve holding onto his shoulders & looking very serious, though I'm sure there's more to it that I could see!!

The informal session that I saw involved a person holding their hands over someone's shoulder for example, and seeming to focus energy on that part of the body.

I think some people claimed they felt heat on their bodies during the session.

It is an ancient system of energy flow. I am not entirely familiar with it I read a few articles on it. In a way, it is similar to chi ung power

I have heard that it is useful in diagnosis and in providing comfort, but there seems to be less evdience for its ability to heal.

Penn and Teller covered it in a few segments they have done on the new age and alternative therapies....Their show is called "Bullsh*t"......so that gives you some idea of how it turned out.

Smile Does reiki work

Hi everyone,

It is so good to hear everyone comments and where they are coming from.
I agree if you are using conventional medicine you need to continue using it, neither does reiki replace conventional medicine. It is complementary to it.

Reiki is using the universal energy or ki or chi in chinese medicine. This energy is all around us, what a reiki practitioner does is bring through the reiki energy and allow it to be used on the client, by placing their hands on or above the client.
This activates the clients own chi or ki energy , helping the body to heal and assisting in removing energy blockages

Reiki is great with children, animals plants,adults I use it on myself and my cats daily.

I just posted about this in "chi" under Chinese Med. forum.
I had a truly amazing experience. Without the practitioner touching me, I had a sense of turbulence around my head & where the "third eye" is located an intense sensation of sensitivity that seemed to encompass both pleasure & pain.
I'm a highly skeptical person & didn't expect squat. And I don't think there was any hypnotic suggestion, unless the person hypnotized me into forgetting that they made such a suggestion!
The practitioner explained after that the turbulent sensation showed that my polarities were unbalanced, and the forehead sensation was my "third eye" chakra trying to open ( and I had a milder sense of this third eye opening at odd times for a week or two).
It's made me open to the idea that chi/ki/prana/life force is for real if not scientifically proven (yet!)

Default Yes, Reiki works.

I have been a Reiki teacher/practitioner for the past 11 years. I have seen people come out of comas (in IC units in hospitals), I've seen healings of bone fractures sped up by e weeks-through a body cast, I've seen cancer go into remission, Reiki is great for the healing of emotions and hurtful memories especially with people who have experienced physical or sexual abuse, and I could go on. Reiki is energy healing and spiritual development of one's personal gifts. It works because the energy of the divine is in union with a person's personal energy to affect healing and development.
Fortunately there are clinical studies occurring all over the world in hospitals and health centers with Reiki in different areas of health care - do a google search of Reiki and clinical studies and you will be amazed at what comes up. There is a whole school in Japan which, from its inception, has devoted itself to documenting all cases of people who have received treatment from the school's students, in order to make itself credible to the medical community.
Reiki works because it asserts what ancient civilizations knew all along, we are more than our physical bodies.
Mark

Wink Reiki works for me!

Hi! I've been an avid Reiki enthusiast, practitioner, and teacher for more than 17 years! I'm a mother and grandmother. I've raised my children and grandchildren using Reiki first whenever issues or problems arise. REIKI WORKS! My only suggestion here would be, if you don't know whether or not Reiki works, GIVE IT A TRY! There are many, many practitioners who eagerly give free introductory treatments, as well as many who give attunements for free just so they have a live person to practice on! There are many blogs on the web: Mine is at chicreation.wordpress.com Please copy and paste into your browser if interested, as there is no option to add a link here. If mine doesn't suit your tastes, please browse the internet until you find a Reiki blogger you enjoy! Don't take anyone's word for this! Find out for yourself. Molly
