How does Reiki work?Reiki energy flows through the whole body especially through the affected parts and charges their energy positively. It removes the energy blockades, clears the energy pathways and lets the life force flow naturally. It thus gradually clears up the negative energies and replaces with positive energy bringing health and harmony.
Who is a Reiki healer?Anyone, male or female, who has received Reiki attunements from a Reiki teacher is a Reiki healer. Anyone, male or female can receive the attunement and become a Reiki healer.
Who can receive Reiki treatment?Reiki treatment should be given to all those who are willing to receive it. Amongst other ethics of Reiki treatment, one basic rule is that Reiki treatment should only be offered and not forced on any one. Free will of a person must always be respected and must never be violated. However, it may happen that a person says "yes" to the treatment outwardly but is not accepting it inwardly. Should this happen, the recipient is not likely to get full benefit from it.

What does the recipient feel?Reiki treatment does not involve the use of any equipment or machine. The treatment is given by simply placing the hands on the body of the recipient without rubbing or exerting undue pressure. The recipient generally feels a pleasant sensation of warmth in the area being treated. At times one can even feel waves of energy entering the body through the areas where hands of practitioner are resting at that time. The flow of energy is very soothing and gentle. Therefore, no pain of any kind is caused by the treatment. As the energy balances and settles itself, pain, stress and tension gradually vanish leaving a pleasant sense of relaxation and a feeling of wellness.
If I learn Reiki, can I treat myself?Yes, certainly. You can use Reiki to treat ailments of the physical body. You must start treating yourself from the day you receive the attunements. Unlike most other healing systems, Reiki teaches and advocates self treatment to begin with. Your treatment sessions must start with self treatment. This must be done everyday whether you are sick or not. You can also start treating others soon after initiation but the lesson is to begin with yourself. However, it must be remembered that Reiki is a complimentary healing system and is not meant to replace the regular medical treatment. Medicines must be used if advised by your doctor.
How can Reiki help me?Reiki can help in curing physical, emotional and mental diseases, improving general health, repairing and improving relationships, and above all it can help you in self development at all the four levels. It can help you in mental relaxation. Manifestation techniques used with Reiki can help in solving lots of problems and achieving various goals. It depends on how you use it.
Will Reiki surely cure me?Reiki is a healing system, not a magic. It can treat a person but does not guarantee any cure. The cure always comes from God, not a doctor or Reiki healer exactly as it happens in allopathic, homeopathic or any other medical system. No healing system can guarantee any cure. While there can be miraculous cures through Reiki, at times there may be very negligible or no cure at all. One must be realistic in his approach.
Can Reiki prolong life and save dying person?The person will live for as long as he is destined to live. In most cases, Reiki calms the patient. If a person is destined to live longer, then yes otherwise Reiki cannot prolong anyone's life. Reiki cannot prevent or postpone death. However, it makes the process of transition much easier and brings peace of mind to the person.
Can Reiki do any harm?Some of us are rightly very conscious of side effects of any medical treatment. Since Reiki is also a healing system, people have questions about this too. Let this be known for certain that Reiki treatment has no harmful side effects whatsoever because Reiki does not use any physical medicines. This infallible life force energy always works for our greatest good whatever that might be. So there is nothing to worry about it. The best part of Reiki treatment is that one cannot be harmed by it. In Reiki, there is no over-dosing or over-saturation. Reiki energy with its supreme intelligence goes only to the benefit of the recipient and makes no mistake. It is pure love and fully positive. So be at peace and use it as much as you want to.
Use of medicines with Reiki treatmentAccording to scientific findings, Reiki supports and increases the effectiveness of almost every other kind of medication and treatment. It is truly complementary, is neither disturbed by nor hinders any other form of medication. It goes very well alongside. There may be cases where Reiki treatment alone may take a longer time to heal up, necessitating medication also. In such cases, it would be better to use medicines with Reiki without the fear of any interference. You can easily charge/energize your allopathic or even homeopathic medicines before use. This would usually increase their effectiveness. Ask your Reiki teacher on how to charge liquid and solid medicines.
