A Deep Dive into Reiki

With Fernando Aria, Founder of Reiki Connection Miami and Wellness Room Miami

What is reiki, in your own words? What about this healing technique makes it so effective?

Reiki is a beautiful, gentle and simple practice that can help you find deep relaxation and eliminate toxins at different levels: physical, emotional, and spiritual. It is a non-invasive, non-religious practice that can be learned by anyone and that has proven to help in cases of anxiety, pain management, reducing effects of chemotherapy, and creating a sense of wellbeing. It is a practice that originated in Japan in 1922, by its founder Mikao Usui and one that has been deemed safe by the AHA (American Health Association). In fact, there are over 800 hospitals across the USA offering Reiki as an adjunct practice to their patients on a regular basis.

How does Reiki work? How does Reiki feel?

A Reiki practitioner will place his hand slightly over your body or will hover over it, allowing the energy to flow into the person receiving reiki. As I said, it is a very simple practice and the client might experience many different sensations or emotions, from a soothing sensation of warmth emitted from the hands of the practitioner to experiencing a deep level of relaxation, having an emotional discharge, reduction in pain, or an overall sense of wellbeing. Each experience is absolutely unique and there are not two like it.

During a session, you will be lying down comfortably on a massage table, fully clothed and the reiki practitioner will hover his or her hands or make very light contact with your body allowing the energy to flow. If your Reiki practitioner has received the necessary training, he/she can offer reiki sessions from the distance as well. It is equally effective and allows you to receive the benefits of reiki when commuting or being in contact with others is an issue.

Reiki is used in over 800 hundred hospitals in the USA, Including Mayo Clinic, John’s Hopkins, and Yale New Heaven just to name a few.
