An alternative and integrative healing therapy, Reiki is used to promote relaxation, enhance spiritual connection, spiritual healing and personal transformation”, says Faun Parliman, Reiki Master and Guest Instructor for Healing Hands School of Holistic Health. It is a healing modality based on the premise that when one’s life force energy is low, or out of balance, they are more likely to feel stress and succumb to disease. Alternately, when one’s life force energy is high, they are more able to maintain optimal health and enjoy an enhanced sense of well-being”, she continued.
In 1992, Reiki was added to a long list of therapeutic modalities taught at Healing Hands. The class’ instructor, Ms. Faun Parliman, has been a Reiki Master since 1985. Faun’s natural intuitive gifts and wealth of experience make her an exceptional Reiki Master and valued instructor for Healing Hands. Faun will be teaching both Reiki I and Reiki II courses at the Laguna Hills classroom this Winter. Her 20-hour Reiki I course starts on January 4th, and her 40-hour Reiki II course begins on January 11th. Faun also teaches a 20-hour Meditation & Healing course for Healing Hands scheduled at the Laguna Hills on January 8th.
Considered a Japanese system of natural healing, the word Reiki translates to ‘guided Universal life force energy’. Although Reiki is a simple technique to learn, the ability to use Reiki must be transferred by a Reiki Master via an ’attunement’. Once ‘attuned’ to Reiki symbols, students are able to tap into this life force energy; to positively impact their own and their client’s health and quality of life. Students of Reiki are also inspired to practice specific ethical ideals offered by Reiki’s Founder, Usui as treatment for the improvement of body and mind. These ideals are as follows:
- Don’t Get Angry Today.
- Don’t Worry Today
- Be Grateful Today
- Work Hard Today (referring to meditative practice)
- Be Kind to Others Today
Shown to be effective in helping almost any illnesses or ailment, Reiki is gaining increased acceptance as an effective, alternative healing therapy. When used as part of an integrative medical treatment plan, Reiki minimizes negative side effects of medicines and treatments, and can substantially speed the healing and recovery process.
