Reiki, Frequently Asked Questions
What does a Reiki treatment feel like?                          
What one experiences during a Reiki treatment varies somewhat from person to person. However, feelings of deep
relaxation are usually felt by all. In addition, many feel a wonderful glowing radiance that flows through and surrounds
them. As the Reiki energy encourages one to let go of all tension, anxiety, fear or other negative feelings a state of
peace and well-being is experienced. Some drift off to sleep or report floating outside their bodies or have visions and
other mystical experiences. At the end of the treatment, one feels refreshed with a more positive, balanced outlook.

Is Reiki a Religion?                                                                                          Reiki, Bangalore
Although Reiki energy is spiritual in nature, Reiki is not a religion. Practitioners are not asked to change any religious or
spiritual beliefs they may have. They are free to continue believing anything they choose and are encouraged to make
their own decisions concerning the nature of their religious practices.

How will Reiki cure my diseases? How long will it take?                               Reiki, Bangalore
When you receive reiki treatment, Reiki starts working at the root causes. The real cause of our diseases are almost
always based in some emotional turbulence, either recent or long-standing. Systems which remove the illness
physically, will rarely have long-lasting effects, as the emotional cause is still prevalent.
Reiki starts working at the disease bottom-up, approaching the root cause first. Because of this, it sometimes takes a
little time to show effect. There are instances, however, in which sensitive patients benefitted from Reiki treatments
immediately and experienced relief.

Who can learn to do Reiki?                                                                              Reiki, Bangalore
Reiki is a very simple technique to learn and is not dependent on one having any prior experience with healing,
meditation or any other kind of training. It has been successfully learned by over one million people from all walks of
life, both young an old. The reason it is so easy to learn that it is not taught in the usual way something is taught. The
ability to do Reiki is simply transferred from the teacher to the student through a process called an attunement that
takes place during a Reiki class. As soon as one receives an attunement, they have the ability to do Reiki and after that
whenever one places their hands on themselves or on another person with the intention of doing Reiki, the healing
energy will automatically begin flowing.

Is it safe for pregnant woman?                                                                        Reiki, Banglaore, India
Since Reiki is guided by the Higher Power, the Reiki energy will know the condition of the client or student and adjust
appropriately. Reiki can only do good. Many pregnant women have received treatments with great benefit to them and
their unborn child. It has also been used during child birth. Pregnant women have also taken the Reiki training and
received the Reiki attunement with beneficial results.

What kind of problems can Reiki solve?                                                          Reiki, Bengaluru
If it is a problem, Reiki can help. From common colds to diabetes, from lawsuits to finding parking slots, Reiki is
helpful everywhere. Whether you are sick or depressed, or simply want to repair a strained relationship, Reiki can help.
It helps bring anger in control, helps introverts talk, and even helps maintain your calm during exams and make the best
of your memory!

Can I treat myself?                                                                                            Reiki, Bengaluru
Yes, once you have received the attunement, you can treat yourself as well as others. This is one of the unique features
of Reiki.

Will Reiki definitely cure me?                                                                         Reiki, Bangalore, India
Just as in allopathy or any other medical system, Reiki does not guarantee any cure. The speed and magnitude of the
healing depends on the patient's subconscious desire to heal himself. While on the one hand there have been miraculous
recoveries, there are also occasional cases where there is either negligible improvement, or an improvement that the
patient refuses to acknowledge.

What if I get too much of energy?                                                                    Reiki, Bangalore, India
There is no such thing as 'too much reiki' or too much energy. Reiki is an intelligent energy, and it works at energising
and balancing the chakras of the patient. Once the energy requirement of the patient is fulfilled, reiki stops flowing,
thereby eliminating any chances of charging someone with 'too much energy'.

I am under medication for my ailment, can I still take Reiki treatment?         Reiki, Bangalore, India
Reiki does not interfere with any medical system, or even other alternative therapies. It increases the immunity of the
patient and helps to reduce the side effects of medicines. It can be used along with any other system, whether
allopathy, ayurveda, homeopathy, aromatherapy, yoga, meditation, and others.

Are there any side effects of Reiki?                                                                Reiki, Bangalore, India
There are no side effects of Reiki, as Reiki is a non-intrusive method. As mentioned above, Reiki is an intelligent
energy and only that much is given to a patient as much is required. Aside from the fact that some patients feel so
relaxed that they feel sleepy, it has no side effects at all.

Do I need to believe in Reiki to get healed?                                                  Reiki, Bengaluru, India
Reiki is not faith healing, and no faith or belief in the system is required to get cured.

Will Reiki bring a dying patient back to life?                                                Reiki, Bengaluru, India
If the person is destined to have a miraculous recovery and reclaim his life, then yes, Reiki will work. However in most
cases, Reiki calms the patient and eases the process of death. Reiki will never prevent or postpone death, but it makes
the process much easier, and brings peace of mind to the person in question.

Can Reiki help victims of black magic?                                                       Reiki, Bangalore
Yes. Reiki offers protection against all kinds of negative energies, including the effects of black magic. Reiki can also
protect you against harmful spirits.

Can I learn Reiki on the internet? Are there any books which can teach me Reiki?     
There are several books and online articles on Reiki, but you need more than just theoretical knowledge to learn Reiki.

Becoming a Reiki channel involves the opening of your chakras (the energy centers of your body) so that you can
channel energy through your body and pass it on to others. For this purpose, you need to learn reiki in the presence of
a qualified teacher.

Can children learn Reiki?                                                                          Reiki, Bengaluru, India
Yes, Reiki can be taught to anyone. I recommend that a child be old enough to understand what Reiki is and that the
child request to receive Reiki.

What is the difference between a 'healing' and an 'attunement'?                Reiki, Bangalore, India
When you receive a Reiki healing, you are being given energy by a healer. The energy transferred to you during one
healing session typically lasts for 24 hours from the time given, unless specified otherwise.

When you receive an attunement, the teacher opens your chakras and makes you capable of receiving energy from the
universe all by yourself, so that you do not have to depend on anyone else for your energy needs.
