  • These days there is a greater awareness of the importance of using natural means to cure sicknesses and diseases. We all know the use of drugs and synthetic medicines, while they work fast, tend to result in side effects. Worse still, reliance on drugs may get you addicted to them. As a result, there has been a shift in emphasis towards alternative medicines and methods of healing to deal with sicknesses.

    One of such alternative methods of healing sicknesses is Reiki. Reiki is a Japanese method of healing diseases using touch, thought, symbols and color. The word 'Reiki' actually means 'universal life energy' in the Japanese language. Reiki principles state that your body is a field of energy. Sickness comes about when the energy in your body is blocked or weakened. This principle is also found in ancient Ayurvedic and traditional Chinese therapies such as Acupuncture. Thus the Reiki method of healing focuses on unblocking the flow of life energy and intensifying it to rid the body of sicknesses. Healing in Reiki takes place when the energy centers in the body, called chakras, are fully energized and promote the proper flow of life energy in the body. Using certain techniques, Reiki practitioners know how to energize your chakras. As a result, Reiki techniques are known to alleviate pains, lower stress levels, strengthen your immune system, increase your energy, improve symptoms of acute and chronic diseases such as asthma and arthritis and assist in your recovery from trauma and surgery.

    Do you want to learn how to heal using Reiki methods? You need to enroll into a Reiki healing course. To do so, you can either join a Reiki school or take up an online Reiki course. Either way, you will be trained in the various techniques of healing by a Reiki Master. This is called attunement. Healing in Reiki comes about by using your hands, thinking in certain ways and using ancient Reiki symbols. Each of these symbols has their individual meaning and use in promoting healing and wellbeing. The differences between enrolling in a Reiki school and taking up a Reiki course online are basically cost and convenience.

    The cost for online courses is generally less expensive than enrolling in a school. Taking up a course online is also more convenient as you can learn at your own pace and at the comfort of your own home. But enrolling in a Reiki school, while more expensive, gives you the advantage of learning from a Reiki Master live.

    Often, this is more effective and thus you will likely become more competent and proficient in Reiki at the end of the course.

    There are many schools and online courses offering Reiki training on healing, so choose wisely according to your own individual means and circumstances.
