Reiki is a Japanese healing technique based on the idea that an unseen “life force” runs through all of us and it is this life force which is responsible for us being alive. If the levels of this energy are low then we are more likely to be sick and suffering. On the other hand, if the levels are high, we are more happy and thriving.

Reiki practitioners use a technique called hands-on-healing in which they place their hands directly or just above you and this life force energy is said to be transferred through the palms of the practitioner to the client. The energy flows through all the areas of the body suffering from blockages and recharges them with positivity.

Think of using Reiki as watering a garden. No matter how you water the greens, the water ends up reaching all the plants in the garden and tends to concentrate in areas that need it the most. You may start watering from one end, gradually progressing towards the other end. You may sprinkle water on the entire garden all at once. In the end, all the plants do end up being refreshed, especially those with a greater thirst. Reiki works much the same way, filling the entire body and being drawn mostly to those parts which need positive energies the most; whether this be a poorly functioning or healing body part.

And the best part is that you need not be ill to experience the benefits of Reiki. Some people use it to enhance their susceptibility towards the wonders of life and to live a more meaningful time. Some use it to work through the daily stresses of life or to maneuver through the transitional periods of life. And others use it to find a perfect harmony between their mind, body and soul.

Here are some other benefits of the healing practice:

  1. Encourages harmony and balance in one’s being
  2. Dissolve energy blocks in various parts of the body
  3. Strengthens the immune system by removing the toxic elements
  4. Compliments certain ongoing medical treatments
  5. Replenishes one’s emotional and spiritual self
  6. Relieves the physical body of pain and strengthens it
  7. Helps release stress and tension
  8. Aids in sleeping
  9. Makes the mind feel more focused
  10. Brings in deep relaxation

Reiki is a simple process that produces a profound effect on one’s lives. Book yourself a Reiki session with our Healer, Vismaya Kabir. As the Practice Head for Reiki at Happy Ho, Vismaya will help restore the client’s health via energy based healing. In this process, once her chakras align with the person she is healing, the energy will flow from her to the person, healing him/her and removing mental and emotional scars.

In Vismaya’s own words, she has a “relationship of hurt, of pain” with her clients because she uses these negative energies as tools to bring about inner balance within the person. And finally the calm that’s on the inside reflects on the outside, making the client heal holistically.
