What is Reiki?

Reiki (pronounced Ray-Key) is a system of natural hands-on healing. Reiki means “universal life energy”, the vital energy around and within all living things.

Reiki is the name given to a system of natural healing which evolved in Japan from the experience and dedication of Dr. Mikao Usui, but many people believe that Reiki is an ancient form of healing probably pre-dating Biblical times. Dr. Usui was inspired to develop this healing system from ancient teachings after many years of study, research and meditation. There is no belief system attached to Reiki so anyone can receive a Reiki treatment, the only prerequisite is the desire to be healed.

A Reiki Treatment

The method of receiving a Reiki treatment from a practitioner is a very simple process. The recipient simply lies on a couch and relaxes. If they are unable to lie, the treatment can be given in a sitting position. The main thing is for the recipient to be as comfortable as possible.

There is no need to remove any clothing as Reiki will pass through anything, even plaster casts. The practitioner gently places their hands non-intrusively, in a sequence of positions over the body. The whole person is treated rather than specific symptoms. A full treatment usually takes one to one and a half hours with each position being held for several minutes. It is also possible to give ‘mini’ seated treatments.

It is also possible to do ‘distance’ Reiki healing if you live too far away, or are requesting healing for another person or situation. You also may have other reasons you cannot attend in person, or simply may not wish to.

Reiki restores balance in one’s life

It is possible to heal at any level of being: physical, mental, emotional or spiritual. Acute injuries can be helped to heal quickly but more chronic illnesses take longer. In some cases such as terminal illness, great benefit and enhancement of the quality of life give a sense of peace and acceptance during the time remaining.
