Reiki     The world's energy in your hands 

By JESSICA PERALTA

Take a look at your hands. You use them for all sorts of things, don't you?

Writing and typing. Maneuvering the steering wheel of your car. Stuffing your face.

Ever think of them as a vessel for channeling the universal chi, or life force energy?

Lofty as that may sound, there are people in this county who use their hands for more than eating Cracker Jacks. They practice an Eastern hand-based healing technique known as Reiki (ray-kee).
The technique has the potential to benefit everything in your life, practitioners say, from health to spirituality.

FEEL THE ENERGY
The life force is the chi, the energy throughout the universe. Reiki practitioners get energy from here and the energy comes out of their hands in the form of heat, directed to the recipient. The recipient's channels are then opened up, energized and clean.

Reiki helps in stress-related diseases, emotional issues and chronic conditions like cancer and diabetes. Reiki helps lift the spirit if you have depression and can help alleviate back pain.

Barbara Lynn, 60, of Laguna Beach, recently experienced her first reiki session.

"I really didn't know what to expect," she said. "It's not anything I had educated myself on before. I just really enjoyed it. It felt really peaceful."

She was told that after two to three days, she would feel some emotional or energy release, which she said she had.

"I've been dealing with my mom's health issues," Lynn said. "It just let me really face it honestly for the first time. It took me out of denial."

"It can be physical problems that you overcome, it can be emotional blockages. It all depends on what you are working at. "It's just a method to balance your whole system."

Dr. Mikao Usui, born Aug. 15, 1865, in Japan, founded the Usui System of Natural Healing, one of the most common forms of reiki, according to the International Center for Reiki Training. Usui was teaching at a university in Japan when a student asked him how Jesus was able to touch and heal people. Usui started researching wherever he could, including at monasteries and in India. He meditated and even fasted for 21 days on a mountain in Japan to find an answer.

While Usui structured reiki into a healing form, this is an ancient healing that existed long ago.

"It's just like an acupuncture treatment without the needles. Reiki helps in stress-related diseases, emotional issues and chronic conditions. Reiki helps lift the spirit if you have depression and can help alleviate back pain.
