Reiki (rei-life ki-force)
Modern research strongly suggests that energy extends throughout our body and beyond. Due to stress and our current life styles disruptions or imbalances in its flow correlate to physical, mental, and emotional illnesses. Many ancient cultures have always believed that life energy flows through the body which affects our body, mind, and emotions. It is an ancient Japanese form of healing.
Reiki is a technique that addresses both chronic and acute conditions. It supports good health and well being as well as a sense of inner peace and total relaxation. The actual mechanism of how Reiki works can be supported by scientific research and explanations. Recent advances in research and medical technology have shown that the body emits various bio-electrical and bio-magnetic fields. These energy fields are measured in common medical diagnostic practice by such instruments as MRI's and electrocardiograms. What is less commonly known is that bio-magnetic energy applied to the body promotes healing. In fact, magnetic field therapy used to heal broken bones and injured tissue, has been approved by the FDA since 1979.
Independent research by Dr. Robert Becker and Dr. John Zimmerman during the 1980's investigated what happens whilst people practice therapies like Reiki.
They found that not only do the brain wave patterns of practitioner and receiver become synchronized in the Alpha State, characteristic of deep realization and meditation. They also pulse in unison with the earth's magnetic field, known as the Schuman Resonance.
During these moments, the biomagnetic field of the practitioners' hands is at least 1000 times greater than normal, and not as a result of internal body current. Toni Bunnell (1997) suggests that the linking of energy fields between practitioner and earth allows the practitioner to draw on the "infinite energy source" or "universal energy field" via the Schuman Resonance. Professor Paul Davies and Dr. John Gribben in The Matter Myth (1991), discuss the quantum physics view of the "living universe" in which everything is connected in a "living web of interdependance". All of this supports the subjective experience of "oneness" and "expanded consciousness" related by those who regularly receive or self-treat with Reiki.
Zimmerman (1990) in the USA and Seto (1992) in Japan further investigated the large pulsating bio magnetic field that is emitted from the hands of energy practitioners whilst they work. They discovered that the pulses are in the same frequencies as brain waves, and sweep up and down from 0.3 - 30HZ, focusing mostly in 7 -8 HZ, alpha state.
Independent medical research has shown that this range of frequencies will stimulate healing in the body, with specific frequencies being suitable for different tissues. For example, 2 Hz encourages nerve regeneration, 7Hz bone growth, 10 Hz ligament mending, and 15 Hz capillary formation. Physiotherapy equipment based on these principles has been designed to aid soft tissue regeneration, and ultra sound technology is commonly used to clear clogged arteries and disintegrate kidney stones. Also it has been known for many years that placing an electrical coil around a fracture that refuses to mend will stimulate bone growth and repair.
Becker explains that "brain waves" are not confined to the brain but travel throughout the body via the peri-neural system, the sheaths of connective tissue surrounding all nerves. During treatment, these waves begin as relatively weak pulses in the thalamus of the practitioner's brain, and gather cumulative strength as they flow to the peripheral nerves of the body including the hands. The same affect is mirrored in the person receiving treatment, and Becker suggests that it is this system more than any other, that regulates injury, repair and system re-balance. This highlights one of the special features of Reiki (and similar therapies) - that both practitioner and client receive the benefits of a treatment, which makes it very efficient.
