Just as visible light can be differentiated into differing colors, Reiki can be subdivided into particular frequencies with perceptible changes. For instance, the wavelength that we call Sei Heki is quite cool to the touch, a little like a spring breeze. Conversely, another Reiki wavelength that we call Choku Rei is warm and comforting.
In the original form of Reiki, Usui Reiki Ryoho, four healing frequencies were used. Over time, other wavelengths have been added. Some of these energies are simply the amalgamation of frequencies already known from other healing traditions. Others have been discovered by practitioners in a variety of different ways.
Today, when you go for a Reiki session, you will be receiving Reiki frequencies as learned by the practitioner. In this way, he or she may be using the original four healing wavelengths or a variety of other energies within the range of what we call Reiki or the healing frequencies. Thus, depending upon the practitioners training, he or she will be using slightly different tools than another practitioner. This can create subtle differences in treatment effectiveness.
I have been trained in 36 different forms of Reiki, including Usui Reiki Ryoho. Through personal experimentation and international testing, I have found twelve healing frequencies or sub frequencies from six different Reiki traditions are particularly useful for those suffering from Fibromyalgia. Used in tandem and as part of my Whole Health Therapy for Fibromyalgia program, I call these energies Reiki for Fibromyalgia.
In this way, when receiving Reiki for Fibromyalgia, individuals are not receiving one frequency or type of energy but twelve at one time. Each of these wavelengths is essentially Reiki ranged energies fine tuned for particular purposes such as relaxation, pain relief, reduction of swelling, energy, and mental centering. This makes Reiki for Fibromyalgia both extremely powerful and very effective in the management and treatment of Fibromyalgia and all its associated symptoms.
