Dragon Reiki was developed in China by practitioners of Japanese-based Reiki. These Reiki practitioners incorporated the essence of the dragon: deep healing and a strong connection with nature, with Reiki practice. Dragons are a part of Chinese culture, whereby the properties of the dragon are incorporated into their spiritual beliefs.
The philosophy behind Dragon Reiki is that healing begins within the individual, on a spiritual level, before it continues to the physical. Therefore, the clearing and healing of the spirit through Dragon Reiki is the focus. Physical healing soon follows, as the body can heal when the spirit is well.
Reiki is a form of energy healing, designed to promote relaxation and enhance balance throughout the entire person: physical, emotional and spiritual. During a Reiki session, the practitioner channels Ki, or life force energy, to the recipient. This is done through either a light touch or over any distance. The guided energy is not limited by space or time. The recipient of a Reiki treatment may feel heat, cold, tingles, a magnetic sensation or a sensation outside the ordinary.
Unique Features of Dragon Reiki:
To become a reiki energy practitioner or a master, you will need to follow the reiki attunement process. You cannot conduct a reiki education or study reiki by reading about it or hearing about it. It is something you need to undergo and experience for you to learn how to perform it on yourself and on others.
Jikiden (or "handed down") Reiki is as close to the original Usui teachings as other variations on the traditional practice.
