Reiki Advanced Uses
As in any system, there are routine uses, advanced uses, and experimental uses. Such advanced and experimental uses serve to keep the discipline vibrant and evolving. There are Reiki Masters who feel that the system of Reiki is already fully evolved, and that any additional experimentation or uses are wrong, and a failure to remain true to Reiki. There are other Reiki Masters, both traditional and non-traditional who feel a responsibility to help Reiki evolve.
I feel that Reiki - not necessarily by that name - has been evolving for about 2500 years, from ancient roots in India and Tibet, being rediscovered by Mikao Usui. There are many traditions which have arisen in Reiki, some old, some new. There are also Reiki Masters who are experimenting today with Reiki and variations of current use, to see if the practice of Reiki can be improved, either by modification, or by combining Reiki with other modalities. I am open to such potential improvements to Reiki. I will experiment with those aspects of Reiki which seem to offer promise.

Reiki is not meant to treat or cure any physical or mental condition, sickness, malfunction, infection, or disease. Reiki is a a relaxation and stress-reduction modality which delivers subtle energy so that there may be a state achieved which permits a person to heal themselves. Relaxation and stress-reduction are known by the medical community to permit a healthier immune system. This, in turn, can permit a person to work toward their own healing. The fact that Reiki is being studied for particular responses does not mean that Reiki is always appropriate to use, only that studies are being conducted in this area.
