Ozgecan's Opinion Essay

Reiki

Reiki comes from Japanese culture, and it treats the whole person including body, emotions, and mind. There is an energy in the world, and people just help to transfer it to treat a person or themselves. They don't use their own energy while they use Reiki. Reiki uses the power of positive emotions to heal certain conditions effectively.

Reiki is an alternative medicine which is used by some doctors in their hospitals. This kind of non-conventional method is usualy not accepted by scientists, but some doctors believe that Reiki is a very effective way to heal someone, and they accept it as a complementary medicine. All around the world, there are many hospitals which perform Reiki, there are many scientists who research about Reiki, and there are many institutes or academies which teach Reiki. Reiki also doesn't work alone. It works with conventional medicine, and it acknowledges that conventional medicine is important.

Reiki is a simple and natural method for healing that everyone can use and benefit from it. If someone's "life force energy" is low, then he/she is more likely to get sick or feel stressed, and if it is high, he/she feels happier and healthier. There are 7 places in the human body called "Chakras" and they have different colors. Reiki is used for the sick chakra. If you want to learn how to use Reiki, you must take some classes. These classes are broken down into 3 parts. I took the beginning part of Reiki classes. I can use it for myself or another person. I think it is effective for stomachaches, headaches, feeling weak or accidents. For example, at times when I fall down, I use Reiki, and my arm or my leg doesn't bruise. It has happened to me many times. But I think these kinds of remedies are risky because some people become obsessed with them, and they become strange. Therefore, I don't want to get too involved, but I can say that Reiki is effective for some illnesses.

These kinds of treatments proved that the human mind has a significant effect on human health. I think it is all about positive emotions. I believe positive emotions affect our health. When you think positively, your life becomes better. Reiki is also about positive emotions. It teaches us to look positively at life. I believe the human mind has this ability. I think this is not just belief anymore; it has been proved by scientists.
