What Is Reiki?
Reiki is a spiritual healing system that's over 5,000 years old rediscovered in Japan by Mikao Usui in the late 1800s. The word Reiki means Universal Life Energy. Ki or Chi should be vibrant and free-flowing as it supports optimum body, mind, spirit and soul wellbeing. Today, Reiki is practiced in every country of the world privately, in hospitals, hospices, private practices, and wellness centers. It’s an excellent energy therapy enhancing any wellness care program. Students receive training materials in digital format, a personal attunement with intuitive messages and lifetime Reiki teaching support and guidance from Sophia.
Noah Schatman of Wired Magazine wrote a 2008 article entitled: Army's New PTSD Treatments: Yoga, Reiki, Bioenergy and revealed that the U.S. Army..."unveiled a $4 million program to investigate everything from 'spiritual ministry...to bioenergetics such as Qi Gong, Reiki and distant healing' to mend the psyches of wounded troops." If the US military is researching the benefits of bioenergy treatments, this certainly validates this wonderful modality.
