Healing and reiki

Healing and reiki

Reiki is the most widely used healing tradition and the one that can also be demonstrated to show scientifically measurable effects, because touching the patient provides stress reduction, relieves pain, and activates a well-being hormone, oxytocin.


Reiki is good to use for stress reduction and you don't need intense belief in some supernatural forces. The treatment is performed for about an hour when dressed on a treatment bench in a quiet environment.


This is how Anna-Lena Vikström writes about reiki: “When you give a reiki treatment, you put your hands in different positions to strengthen the life energy and activate the self-healing ability of man. You activate the immune system and the self-healing power from within! ”


The idea of living with reiki comes from Buddhism and means that life should be simple, to live in the present and to choose to see the harmonic around us instead of the other way around.


Reiki is based on the old Eastern philosophy of a life energy that flows through all living things. It is called in Japanese ”ki” and in Chinese ”chi”. There are different types of ki energy. Reiki is the kind of ki that maintains the harmony of the universe and restores the perfect harmony, where one activates reiki. The Ki energy then becomes reiki where one thinks of healing.


The Reiki method has existed in Finland since 1985.
