Alternative healing has roots that date back to centuries, way more modern medicine even came into being. It has its roots in multiple religions and has been used to treat all kinds of problems, be it a physical disease or ailment or psychological distress. After the introduction of modern medicine, alternative medicine and healing was pushed back, however it has slowly been gaining momentum over the years again.

One form of alternative healing is Reiki healing. For those of you who are not familiar, reiki healing basically involves the use of one’s healing energy and transferring it to the client’s body. This energy comes from a higher being and is channeled through our body.

Now if you want to become a reiki practitioner, it is actually not a difficult process. People of all ages from all walks of life can learn reiki. In order to master reiki, you need to go through an attunement process with a reiki master. An attunement is the process where the reiki master will give you the ability to carry out reiki treatments. The master will basically place their hands on your head, shoulders and hands and then do various hand positions along with a few special breathing techniques. This will unlock the energy pathways in your body, connect you to the higher being. The master will initially pass on some of their attunement energy to you and then you will learn how to create your own afterwards. Some people have a deep spiritual experience during this process while others simply feel a sense of calm and relaxation. So, you don’t need to have a certain kind of experience during this process. You also need to attend a few reiki classes so that you can learn more about the process of giving treatment, and observe the master as they perform treatments.
