What is Reiki? Interview by Fine Fit DayNovember 20, 2014
Many people have trouble wrapping their head around Reiki and other energy healing methods. That’s understandable. It’s not like we learn about them alongside our ABC’s, shapes, and colors. For many, these ideas about the body and our energy fields are new. But for others, they’re not. Born into a family of healers, these ideas and practices were introduced to me at a young age. It wasn’t until I was older that I realized I was among the smaller portion of the population who had been exposed to such understandings of the body and health. However, that is starting to change. More than ever, we as humans are making more of an effort to understand health and wellness, even venturing outside of more accepted Western practices. Reiki is now even being used in hospitals!
Even with the gaining popularity of energy work and energy healing, Reiki is often understood as a purely spiritual or even religious practice. While many seek that from the work, at it’s core, it is a simple treatment that gently heals the physical, mental, and emotional energetic bodies. Regardless of your spiritual or religious beliefs, Reiki can benefit you and provide healing.
About a year ago, a good friend of mine, Carly, from Fine Fit Day sat down with me to chat about Reiki. As a dancer, I understand and experience the body from many different areas of my life: athlete, artist, and healer. These understandings give me a unique approach to and understanding of Reiki that I think many are able to relate to.
