Reiki is a universal energy which people experience as a warm balancing and harmonising life force energy. It is totally natural, safe to use at all times and both nuturing and empowering.
Reiki originated from Japan at the turn of the 20th century by Mikao Usui. The word Reiki (pronounced ray key) can be split into two components. Rei meaning Universal and Ki (Qi Chi) meaning life force energy. This is energy of the highest and purest form, the very essence that supports and sustains life. Utilizing the methods within the Reiki System, the Reiki Practitioner transfers healing energy to another by the laying on of hands.
Reiki usually helps healing of all kinds and relieves pain and acute symptoms very quickly. It also has a positive influence on spiritual growth. Reiki can affect each person differently but it always acts wherever the receiver needs it most. Reiki works on the body as a whole, balancing the emotions, bringing clarity to the mind and reconnecting to the ‘true self’ which in turn impacts on physical well-being.
