I think anyone with a gift would be apt to use it wisely and for all good - NOT for money.
I would be leary of anyone charging money ect. Same of the 'psychics'.

Sorry, until someone invents a "Reiki meter" where this so-called "energy" can be accurately measured or observed.....to me it will be nothing more than another passing fad that bored housewives dabble in.
To me there are very few people who could heal others with just their hands, and most of them are canonized.

As someone who doesn't know much about Reiki Healing, I have some curiosities of my own.
I understand energy can stimulate the body's natural healing abilities and have seen it demonstrated time and again. Is it possible to summon up the energies to heal yourself in Reiki Healing, or just in healing others? I've heard tales of people who have focused their energies so strongly into their own immune system that they've been able to effect radical change on wounds or disease.
Would this be something similar?

Charging money means greediness & perhaps there is no real gift in that person at all. And I don't buy into the idea that that's what the person was born into doing exclusively & therefore can't find a paying job in another field.
Does a doctor heal for money? People have to eat don't they? Compensation For service, whats wrong with that?
We see every day the effects of greed in the news where the big CEO's make millions. Doctors who make huge sums of money, etc, etc, etc.
If a gifted healer gives him/her self for free that is great. But they should still be paid. They have taken their time to learn, perfect their craft and develope their reputation. But as all should do...Buyer beware. Don't be a sucker. An educated consumer is the best customer.

I find it very interesting just started to read up on it about 5 mins ago, if anyone has any good links I'd love to have them...

Reiki, oh dear.
Some of the most vile and pompous new agers I ever met claimed to be 'Reiki Masters'.
I tend to stay away from anything where each level of mastery is a 'bit more expensive' to attain. Bit like Scientology.
The energy is always there, it's free. If someone offers to 'initiate' you for a fee, you can be sure there's some kind of control or manipulation or power trip going on.
Reiki has not escapted this. Maybe it was somewhat pure in the beginning, but it didn't remain so.
Best to steer clear and find your own healing essence.

Reiki Session (Long-Distance Only)
Reiki is a practice of “laying on hands” either directly on the body or long–distance. Reiki promotes healing by relieving stress and increasing relaxation. Reiki taps into our own natural life force energy unblocking stuck energy. 30min@$ 67.50
