Reiki is the fusion of two Japanese words: "Rei," meaning "universal spirit" or "the higher power," and "Ki," meaning "life force energy." The Japanese practice of Reiki (pronounced ray-kee) is categorized as an alternative energy therapy practiced through the application of a "laying on of hands" technique predicated on the belief that an invisible "life force energy" moves through us and is the source of our vitality.

If your "life force energy" is low, you're more vulnerable to illness and stress; if it's high, you've got a better chance of flourishing physically and emotionally. When you get a treatment, it's like a beautiful, warm glow radiates all around and through you. Relaxation and a sense of calm, safety, and well-being are just some of the numerous positive impacts of Reiki, which treats the whole person rather than just the physical or mental aspects.

For thousands of years, people all over the world have relied on the healing art of Reiki. Mystics, yogis, and masters from all periods and all corners of the globe have practiced Reiki to promote universal harmony and health for all living things. They fill it with soothing, healing energy as they enter a room.

The Japanese term for cosmic life force energy is Reiki. Chi is the word for it in Chinese. Prana is the term used to describe the life force in yoga and Ayurveda. It's like a universal healing energy that's all around us. There is a source of power in every one of those atoms. Reiki is a non-invasive healing energy method that can be practiced on oneself or others. Anyone can learn and use Reiki techniques.

The Origins of Reiki

According to popular belief, Reiki was created in 1922 by a Japanese Zen Buddhist professor, Mikao Usui. He saw that healing the body required attending to the patient's spirit or soul. Usui founded the Reiki organization and began instructing others in his technique after drawing inspiration from various Asian healing practices, including those found in Tibetan Buddhist literature.


What a Reiki Session Entails

The average length of a Reiki treatment session is between 30 and 90 minutes. In most situations, the client is fully clothed and either seated or lying down. An essential tenet of Reiki is that vitality flows where it is most needed. It is claimed that the practitioner's intention aids in guiding the energy flow in Reiki.

To ensure no portion of the body is forgotten, the Reiki practitioner may also use hand positions that go all the way around the body. For example, hands are placed palm down, fingers and thumbs extended, and each posture is kept for two to five minutes. After receiving Reiki, a person may feel relatively calm. They say they occasionally feel tingling, warmth, tiredness, or revitalization.

Reiki Master Healing Course

Location: Ao Nang, Krabi

Duration: 8 days

This course is ideal if you have already taken Reiki 1 and 2 and want to become a Reiki master while also taking in the sights of Krabi, Thailand. Reiki Grandmaster Marina Frei will teach you, and you will receive a certificate at the program's culmination. It is situated in a rural area, providing a tranquil atmosphere and stunning views of the picturesque Krabi scenery.

If you are interested in joining a master-level Reiki healing course, it is crucial to know what you will be able to perform once you have completed the program. If you attain the level of "Reiki Master," you should be able to train others to use the technique. This is the goal of Marina Yoga's Reiki mastery course.

In contrast, becoming a Reiki master does not necessitate becoming a Reiki master teacher. Instead, your healing powers will be significantly enhanced by your newfound mastery of Reiki energy, symbols, techniques, and knowledge. In-person and long-distance healing work, as well as self- and group-healing attunements, will all benefit greatly.

The ability to teach Reiki to others is another benefit. A lot of people become Reiki Masters so that they can do this. The energy of the entire globe rises as more and more people become Reiki Masters and raise their own personal levels.

Becoming a Reiki master is a significant undertaking that calls for careful planning. To practice Reiki healing, one must first complete the Reiki Healing I and II courses. Becoming a Reiki Master also requires contemplation of one's life's more significant meaning and a determination that the path to Reiki mastery is in harmony with that meaning.

The next step is to find a competent, compassionate, and supportive Reiki Master to train under so that you can go on to become a Reiki Healing Master yourself. The only way to truly master Reiki healing is to work on and enable all of your discordant qualities to be healed by Reiki energy. Despite the seeming contradiction, a genuine Reiki Master is committed to perpetually expanding their abilities in Reiki healing. Becoming a Reiki master, like maturing as a person, is an ongoing process.

Reiki 1, 2 and Master Training with Yoga and Meditation

Location: Koh Samui

Duration: 12 days

The fourth symbol represents Master level initiation. Only four of Dr. Mikao Usui's characters are used in Reiki. After this training, you will have attained the level of Reiki master. Applying Reiki to others will teach you a great deal. You need to be more conscious, awake, and sensitive to the energies to experience them. To keep your ability to heal intact as a Reiki master, it is crucial to meditate regularly.

You are more than just the sum of your physical parts; your mind and body are infinitely complex. Once you learn to open a line of communication with these more profound layers, you'll be able to use Reiki to steer your life on a more purposeful path. Reiki can be practiced in every aspect of your life. If you receive the Reiki Master attunement but never use the healing arts on yourself or others, the energy will still be there.

The detox program at the Health Retreat Samui Resort is among the most talked-about features of the resort. It is situated on Bang Po Beach, a beautiful and tranquil area of Koh Samui that is remote from the hustle and bustle of the city center. The yoga shala is surrounded by glass on three sides and is just steps from the ocean's turquoise waters. It is a special joy to practice yoga with the view of the ocean and the soothing sound of the waves as a backdrop.
