If you’re from Los Angeles you’ve most likely heard the term Reiki Healing before.

Los Angeles is one of the most spiritual cities in California, so no surprise there if you know someone who practices Reiki Healing or who has experienced the practice before. What may come as a surprise is that plenty of people in Los Angeles have no idea what Reiki Healing is. And that’s okay! That’s exactly why we started Sesh, to bring this beautiful Energy Healing practice into mainstream society so people can start understanding the importance and benefits of healing their energy.


What is Reiki Healing?

Reiki Healing is a form of Holistic Energy Healing originated over 100 years ago in Japan by Dr. Mikao Usui. The word Reiki literally means Universal Energy. When you break apart the word Reiki and translate it into Japanese, Rei means Universal and Ki means”energy”.

You can think of Reiki Healing as an energetic detox or energetic massage. Instead of detoxing your muscles to help with physical pain or to relax for a bit, Reiki Healing helps detox your energy systems (Chakras, Meridians, Vibration, Aura) by releasing any stagnant energy that is not serving you on a holistic level.

Reiki Healers go through a series of attunements that open up their energy system, allowing them to act as a channel to our Universal Life Force Energy. They use light, but very powerful hand placements (both on and above your body) to basically shake up your energy system by releasing stagnant energy which heals trauma at the root.


What are the Benefits of Reiki Healing?

Reiki Healing affects everyone differently as it is super personalized to what you need, even on a subconscious level. Some frequent benefits of Reiki Healing are:


And so much more!


During Energy Healing, you may cry or even laugh. These are both signs that you are releasing energy. It is very normal and you should never hold back - let it go! Your Healer has created a safe space for you, without any judgment.


Why book a Reiki Healing Session?

Reiki Healing is good for anyone at any time in life. An Energy Healing modality like Reiki is gentle enough to be done on children - with the parent’s consent of course. In its simplest form, Reiki can help you rebalance and de-stress. It even works on much deeper levels to help heal from anxiety and traumas, like heartbreak and grief.


Most people turn to Reiki Healing when:

After a Reiki session, people tend to always feel lighter and refreshed. Now, who wouldn’t want that!?


The Mind, Body, Spirit, and Energy:

Energy Healing and Reiki Healing are Holistic Modalities as they work across your entire being - your mind, body, soul, spirit, and energy. Western medicine tends to focus on just our physical body. When we get sick we are slapped with a prescription that almost always just subsides the systems. Don’t get us wrong, this type of practice is important, but it tends to ignore what is going on past our physical to get to the root cause. Which is not always the best route. And this is why Holistic modalities like Reiki Healing are incredibly beneficial. Reiki practitioners, are not doctors so you should always seek out a doctor if something serious is going on. They understand that everything is connected so they look at all aspects of a person - their mind, body, spirit, and energy to better understand why one may be experiencing the physical symptoms. It is such a great way to stay on top of your well-being so you can prevent any illness or disease that is typically formed from something that was never truly healed.  


How your Mind, Body, Spirit, and Energy are all connected:

Let’s look at anxiety as an example. On a physical level, anxiety can cause:

If you were to just focus on the physical symptoms of anxiety, you can take a pill that can help it subside. Helpful? Sure. But take it a step further and look at how it goes so much deeper than your physical.

Looking at all aspects of yourself, which can be made clear through an Energy Healing modality like Reiki, you can take the steps needed to heal your anxiety because everything is brought to the surface. It’s about realizing what is going on within yourself and your life around you, understanding the changes that need to be made, and then implementing actions to create a healthier and happier you!


How do you know you need to book Reiki Healing?

Once you begin implementing Reiki Healing into your routine, you’ll just know when you need another Reiki session. It is an incredibly intuitive feeling, but the reality is you are just getting to know your mind, body, spirit, and energy more and more each time you heal.

If Reiki Healing is new to you, most people tend to book a Reiki session when they are feeling stuck or unlike themselves and can’t figure out to move through it.

In a city like Los Angeles, there are so many different types of modalities that people can turn to to help whatever it is they are dealing with. But, if you are truly looking to improve your overall well-being in a safe, gentle, and not so “far out there” way - an Energy Healing modality like Reiki Healing is definitely the way to go.


Importance of healing through Reiki.

We’ll say it again. It comes down to taking care of yourself in your entirety - your mind, body, spirit, and energy. Not just your physical.

You are a complex human being. Just think of all the outside circumstances you deal with on a daily basis that affects you one way or another. You can hold onto situations, traumas, and emotions, no matter how big or small, much deeper than you may think you do, which ultimately gets stored within you as energy - because when it comes down to it, everything is energy.

And yes, everything is energy. The computer screen you are reading this blog post on right now has a certain vibration. The chair you’re sitting on does as well. And you, yes ... you. You vibrate at a certain frequency that can be raised or lowered depending on the state of your energetic well-being!


This is why it is so important to take care of your energy!

In our society, we don't typically think of Energy Healing modalities like Reiki as a form of self-care because we don't physically see results as we do from a facial, for example. But, it does so much more for your overall well-being than any other form of self-care because it works through your mind, body, spirit, and energy- all at once. Even continuing to do so after your healing session is over.

The more you implement Reiki Healing into your life, the more you will begin to see a difference within yourself and the life you desire to live. Think of yourself like an onion. You have tons of layers that need to be pulled back and shed in order to become your best self. Every time you heal through Reiki a layer is essentially peeled, bringing you closer to the most powerful, authentic version of you.


At the end of the day, the reason why you turn to self-care in the first place is to feel and become a better version of yourself, right?

So if this resonates with you, you may be needing to heal on a deeper level than you typically do. Try Reiki Healing, you have nothing to lose besides energy that is no longer serving you of course.

Make sure you find a trusted Reiki Healer who is certified and vetted because your well-being is not something to be taken lightly. In order to heal properly, you need to have a safe place to do so and through a Healer, you can trust.
