It is based on the attunements which open you up to the Reiki energy. Once this pathway is established you are able to channel Reiki for the rest of your life using the energy for growth, self development and healing for yourself.
Once you have been attuned Reiki I, the energy will flow through your hands whenever you touch with the intention of healing or helping. Once you have received the first degree attunements, you will have this ability for life.
"Reiki can safely be used in combination with orthodox medical care and other complementary therapies"
It combines well with many alternative therapies, including Acupuncture, Aromatherapy, Reflexology, Kinesiology, Counseling and will increase their effectiveness and decrease the time required to see positive change.
Sometimes people find that with regular Reiki treatments their dependence on medication may be reduced. For example someone on thyroxin may find that the thyroid gland is kick started by the Reiki, therefore for a time they could have symptoms of excess thyroid production until the medication is adjusted appropriately.
It is therefore recommended to advise people on thyroid or diabetic medication of this possibility so they can be prepared to contact their GP if necessary. It may even be appropriate to let their doctor know beforehand that they are receiving Reiki if they are on Thyroxin or diabetic medication.
