Common myths about Reiki

Thursday, September 27, 2018

Reiki has been used for years to treat a number of health problems. Like any other form of treatment, there are a number of common myths associated with Reiki. These myths can make people reluctant to choose this non-invasive and highly beneficial treatment.

One of the most common misconceptions is that Reiki is a religion. While it is quite the spiritual experience, Reiki is not a religion. It also does not infringe on personal beliefs which is why people of all religions have come to love this form of treatment.

Another myth is that Reiki is a massage therapy. Reiki itself is not a massage but it can be combined with different types of massage. Reiki can be performed without the practitioner making any physical contact. That said, many practitioners agree that the benefits and effects increase when combining Reiki with massage.

Some people believe that the practitioner sacrifices their own energy when performing Reiki on somebody else. This is not the case because the practitioner acts as a conduit rather than a source. They funnel the universal life energy which means that they do not deplete their own in the process.

Reiki is not a once off treatment. As much as some people would love to enjoy a single treatment to solve all of their problems, it really is best to schedule regular treatments. It's also important to let the practitioner know exactly what you are experiencing so that they can provide the best care. Since life and stress can take its toll on the body and mind, regular Reiki is perfect for keeping yourself on track physically, mentally, and emotionally.
