The most important reason for learning Reiki is to improve your own life; to improve your health and to improve your sense of well-being. Giving yourself a Reiki self-treatment on a daily basis is one important and powerful way of ensuring that you achieve and maintain a state of healthy balance and harmony.

When we hurt ourselves, we instinctively reach out and cover the painful area with our hands. We do this also when someone else is suffering. We use our hands to bring comfort and to ease pain for ourselves and others. This is an ancient and instinctive response. Reiki builds on this and amplifies the effect. 

Reiki is useful when you wish to restore your body/mind to a state of harmony when you are suffering from an illness or a mental or emotional problem. The application of daily Reiki can help to reduce or eliminate pain, restore calmness to the mental processes and bring back balance. It is also good for balancing and strengthening and the immune system and the nervous system.

To practice Reiki, you don’t need any special aids or devices and it is always with you, wherever you are, flowing freely and abundantly to all parts of the body/mind complex.

As a self-healing discipline, Reiki should be intuitive rather than prescriptive. It's important to flow with the energy and follow your own inner promptings rather than stick to a prescribed set of hand positions.
