Complementary Alternative Medicine (CAM) is an approach of healing that is being explored and used more widely alongside conventional medicine practice. CAM focuses on exploring the physical, mental, emotional and spiritual methods of healing.
At Lifeologie Counseling Oak Cliff, we are expanding our services so that we take on a more holistic well-rounded approach to bringing care, support and healing to our clients. That means we are exploring CAM techniques to complement our existing counseling and psychotherapeutic services. We are so excited to introduce Reiki Healing to our clients.
Reiki, is a method of healing used for relaxation and self-treatment of the body, mind, and spirit. The origins of Reiki go back to the ancient Buddhist scriptures. Symbols and mantras discovered by a Japanese priest, Dr. Mikao Usui became the roots and foundation of the Reiki healing system. Through his awareness and extended consciousness, the meaning and use of the symbols became revealed to him, thus the Usui System of Reiki was born.
The word REIKI means Universal Life Force Energy. It is defined as being the power which acts and lives in all created matter. The word Reiki is made up of two root words: REI means the Universal, boundless aspects of the energy and KI meant the vital Life Force Energy which flows through all beings. Everyone is born with REIKI, for it is the energy of life itself.
A Reiki practitioner undergoes an attunement process, otherwise known as an initiation that is carried out by a Reiki Master. During the attunement or initiation process, energy centers, also known as Chakras are opened up to enable the healer/practitioner to channel a higher amount of the Life Force Energy. The Reiki Master performs the unblocking and clearing process on the healer/practitioner. Once the attunement process is completed over a period of two days in a formal attunement setting, the practitioner becomes cleared of any blocks that prevent him/her from receiving the highest amount of the Life Force Energy. This Life Force Energy is then channeled and used for the purpose of healing during a healing session. The Life Force Energy is channeled and received by the healer/practitioner and transferred to the client through the palms of the practitioner.
A typical Reiki Healing Session is conducted for 60 minutes in our private healing room. We offer private individual, couple and group sessions.
Reiki is an extremely effective method of healing. Its effects are often described as relaxing, calming and helpful to alleviate stress. Just like everything in life, Reiki must be experienced so that it can be truly appreciated. When we open ourselves more and commit to beginning our healing journey, there are many wondrous gifts that we can experience which will help us let go of the fears and hesitations that hold us back.
