“Reiki is Love, Love is wholeness, wholeness is balance, balance is wellbeing, well being is freedom from disease.” Dr Mikao Usui
In the mid 1800’s. Dr. Mikao Usui, a Japanese born Buddhist monk rediscovered this ancient form of healing. Nowadays, this versatile, gentle therapy is becoming ever more popular.
What is Reiki?
Reiki is a powerful system of natural energy healing whereby the practitioner uses different hand positions around the head, shoulders, stomach and feet. It works on a physical, emotional and spiritual level and as a result is a truly holistic therapy. In addition, it can also help in a number of ways. Firstly, to change negative thought patterns. Secondly, to increase clarity and concentration. Finally, it can balance emotions and quieten the mind.
Reiki is one of the safest treatments and as a result you can use it even with children and pregnant women. In addition, it is non-invasive as the client remains fully clothed.
The name originates from two Japanese words – Rei which means “subtle spiritual wisdom” and Ki which is “life force energy”. (known as ‘chi’ in China and ‘prana’ in India) Eastern medicine has always recognised and worked with this energy, which flows through all living things and is vital to well-being.
