Where exactly did reiki originate?


    The Japanese practice of Reiki is an energetic form of bodywork that, by increasing the flow of blood and lymph through the practitioner’s hands, results in the recipient experiencing a profound sense of relaxation and an improvement in blood flow. When the body is in a state of relaxation, it can achieve improved stimulus transfer, blood flow, and improved removal of waste products; this addresses the body’s innate capacity for self-healing. As a result, it is easier for nutrients and signaling substances to get to where they are required.

    Because of the profound state of relaxation, one can also gain greater insight and a heightened awareness of their being. The mind also finds itself at ease in this state.

    Through the practice of Reiki, deficiencies in our body’s energy can be remedied, and the body’s natural equilibrium can be reinstated. The treatment is designed to break up any stagnation in the body that may be contributing to the patient’s illness or acting as a barrier to their recovery. By placing our hands on the areas of the body where tension builds up, we can alleviate the pain, tension, and pressure that is felt in those areas and, in some cases, eliminate it.

    The recipient of this life energy decides, either consciously or unconsciously, what they will do with the energy once they have received it. They can affect the self-healing process itself, whereas the provider does not affect this aspect. Being willing to let this universal energy flow through one’s entire physical and mental being can lead to healing, acceptance, or all three of these outcomes when one is open to the possibility of it happening.

    People report experiencing positive emotions as a result of physical contact. Oxytocin is released through the act of physical touch. Oxytocin is essential in the pleasure circuit that links social interactions with positive emotions. Receiving physical attention in our lives is something that should be prioritized highly. But even if you just talk to each other about your experiences going through the treatment, you’ll find a stronger sense of connection.

    The Japanese words “Rei” and “Ki” are where the term “Reiki” originates from. So “Rei” means Universal, and “Ki” stands for life energy.

    The practice of Reiki, which dates back several centuries and can be consciously learned by anyone, is a form of alternative medicine. It is a treatment form that originated in China and was further developed by Mikao Usui in Japan in the early nineteenth century after its Japanese form. This development was based on the original Japanese form. Primarily concerned with coming to terms with oneself. After his passing away in 1926, several different approaches based on his method were taught in Japan. Each serves its distinct function. Healing is the goal of some forms, while enlightenment of the spirit is the focus of others. Ling-chi is how Reiki is referred to and spoken in China.

    The Shin Ki, also known as the source, is where Reiki is generated and is symbolic of how the five elements work together. Movement and vibration are central aspects of the Reiki practice, as is the concept of elemental collaboration.

    Through the lens of the five elements, the concept of the circle of life is explored in Traditional Chinese Medicine. The elements that makeup fire are wood, earth, metal, and water. To keep both the body and the mind in good health, each component must cooperate with the others.

    The state of health or disease is represented by the five elements working together or against one another. The fundamentals of TCM are analogous to anatomy, physiology, and pathology, as Western medicine studies. Likewise, traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) is the same as Western medical basic knowledge. Therefore, there is nothing intangible or ambiguous about Reiki.
