THE SCIENCE OF REIKI

QUANTUM PHYSICS - WHAT HAPPENS VIBRATIONALLY

Reiki is channeled through the practitioner's bioenergy field, out through the hands and to the recipient.  The practitioner places her hands on or slightly above various parts of the body that correspond to the chakras to remove energy blockages and to get the recipient's ki flowing properly again. Quantum Physics explains this as the process of "entrainment" whereby the higher vibrational energy of Reiki is being channeled by the practitioner to the lower vibrational energy, thus raising the recipient's frequency so they fall into synchronicity.  The result is a harmonization of frequencies, which helps restore the recipient's natural state of being and stimulates the body's innate healing abilities. 

THE NERVOUS SYSTEM - WHAT HAPPENS PHYSICALLY

Our nervous system is an intricate web that includes the Autonomic Nervous System (ANS) which is controlled by the subconscious mind.  The subconscious mind is not only where our beliefs and memories are stored, but is also responsible for our emotions and involuntary actions.  The ANS has 2 branches:

  • The Sympathetic Nervous System (SNS) - The Fight or Flight system

    • The SNS responds to impending danger or stress and is responsible for increased heart rate and blood pressure, quickening of the breath, muscle tension, sweating and reduced digestion and immune functionality.  Adrenaline is released as the body prepares for a potential threat.

  • The Parasympathetic Nervous System (PNS) - The Rest and Digest system

    • On the other hand, the PNS is evident when a person is resting and feels relaxed. It releases hormones that slows the body's stress response and promotes relaxation.  It is responsible for decreasing the heart rate and blood pressure, stimulating the digestive and genitourinary systems and strengthening the immune system.

 

Reiki activates the PNS and, interestingly, clients often report gurgling in their stomachs as their digestive system becomes stimulated from finally receiving the signal that the body is relaxed and can begin to detox, supporting the liver and the immune system in healing the body. Simultaneously, when clients are receiving Reiki they transition from the everyday beta brain wave state (busy, anxious thinking) into an alpha and sometimes even deeper theta brain wave state which induces deep relaxation and calm wakefulness.  Because our active brain consumes more than 20% of our energy, this can have profound effects enabling us to provide more energy to other parts of the body in order to heal.
