imbalance(Vikruti) of these Doshas (or Dosas) is the root cause of most of our physical and
mental problems.

Dominance of a Dosha determines body type or "Prakriti" of an individual.

Is there scientific evidence for reiki?

In order for any medicine or treatment method to be accepted into the mainstream health
care system, evidence is needed that the medicine/method is effective and safe.

Reiki, being medicine-less and non-ivasive (non-manipulative) can be regarded as safe, or at

least there is no known established case of negative effects of reiki, till now.

That leaves the question of effectiveness. Is reiki effective?

Let us look at findings of some research organizations –

Reiki works on all the layers of our being - mental,spiritual and the physical. It is seen that
people get destressed after a reiki session.

• Removes any blockages in body chakras, leading to total healing.

What is Healing?

How do you define healing?

So many people interpret healing in physical terms only. When you get rid of a debilitating
physical condition, it is said that you are healed. Most people when talking about healing
refers to this physical healing only.

There is another healing - at the mental/spiritual level. For me healing is all about finding the
inner peace within me. When i am at peace with myself, when outside circumstances can not
create imbalance in my thought process - that is healing for me.

what is reiki

I believe there exists one supreme being - the absolute infinite - a dynamic force that governs
the world and universe. It is an unseen spiritual power that vibrates and all other powers fade
into insignificance beside it. So, therefore, it is absolute!...I shall call it "Reiki"... Being an
universal energy from the Great Divine Spirit, it belongs to all who seek and desire to learn
the art of healing. - Hawayo Takata
