Rune healing is most often associated with the gods and goddesses that were worshipped in pre-Christian times. Runes were the symbols of the gods and goddesses and contain within them the power of the gods or goddesses they were associated with. Some of these associations are known, while others have been lost to history.
A Rune Master knows and interprets the meaning of the runes in order to make them beneficial for people to use in the present day. Each rune is used for prevention of harm, discovering the root cause of a problem or sickness, or to heal an ailment. Specific runes are known to be more effective with dealing with certain kinds of illnesses.
The rune system is based on Armanen runes which can be accessed through Runic yoga, runic signing or symbolism, meditation, and the laying on of stones, so there are many different ways to use these runes. Other runic sets are used for predictions and asking questions rather than for healing purposes.
Rune casting is a method of using highly energetic symbols to promote healing and protection. Rune healing can be used in combination with Reiki healing techniques, since both these methods utilize the energy found around us to promote healing and balance.
