In my recent trip to Asia, I updated my knowledge in Reiki, Reflexology and Ayurveda.
There are many ways to say what is Reiki but in my words"Reiki is one of the oldest and best known systems of hands-on energy healing, first used by the Tibetan Buddhist monks thousands of years ago and re-discovered in the 1800′s by Dr Mikao Usui. The Usui system of Reiki is a very simple but powerful healing technique that is easily given and received by anyone.
I could also say Reiki is a Japanese technique for stress reduction and relaxation that also promotes healing. It is administered by "laying on hands" and is based on the idea that an unseen "life force energy" flows through us and is what causes us to be alive. If one's "life force energy" is low, then we are more likely to get sick or feel stress, and if it is high, we are more capable of being happy and healthy.
A treatment feels like a wonderful glowing radiance that flows through and around you. Reiki treats the whole person including body, emotions, mind and spirit creating many beneficial effects that include relaxation and feelings of peace, security and wellbeing. Many have reported miraculous results.

Reiki is a simple, natural and safe method of spiritual healing and self-improvement that everyone can use. It has been effective in helping virtually every known illness and malady and medical or therapeutic techniques to relieve side effects and promote recovery.
Reflexology is a holistic and non-invasive bodywork approach that encourages the release of accumulated stress and stimulates the body’s innate healing response.
During a reflexology session manual pressure is applied to points located on the feet/hands/ears that correspond to all parts and systems of theuring a body. By doing so accumulated stress levels as well as habitual patterns of stress are addressed. Release of tension enables the body to return to a state of equilibrium, enabling it to do its job more effectively and more efficiently.
As balance is restored, physiological changes in the body are effected. These include,but are not limited to stress reduction, theimprovement of nerve function and circulation, which in turn, increase the supply of oxygen and nutrients to all parts of the body and aid in the elimination of toxins and waste products. On a structural level, gentle manipulation of the tissues around the numerous joints of the feet/ankles and hands/wrists encourages release of holding patterns and enables greater ease and range of movement in these joints. This, in turn, can affect the alignment of the entire body.
The relaxation benefits of reflexology are often immediately noticeable. Additionally, it is not unusual for an individual to experience lasting results and relief from the aches and pains of more superficial, less engrained conditions.
Acute and/or chronic conditions tend to be the result of stress patterns built up over a period of time. Additional sessions may be needed, providing the body with the time it needs for breaking down accumulated layers of stress. Also, old injuries or even illnesses (e.g. colds) may re-surface as part of the healing process. It is recommended that one give the body the time and attention it needs to heal.
