"Do not rise to anger
Do not succumb to worry
Express gratitude for all your blessings
Apply yourself diligently
Manfiest compassion to all beings...
Even if it's just for today."
- Reiki Principles by Dr Usuai
What is Reiki?
Reiki (pronounced ray-kee) is an ancient energy healing therapy that was discovered by a Japanese Buddhist in the 1920s called Dr Mikao Usuai. In line with Dr Usuai’s Buddhist beliefs – Reiki was intended to be a gift to humanity to help alleviate suffering and to quicken path to spiritual awakening. Nowadays it has become a popular healing modality that is even offered as a non-invasive complementary therapy with NHS.
Like other energetic and holistic healing modalities, Reiki is based on the premise that illness, whether physical, mental or emotional is the result of the life energy force becoming stagnant and unable to flow. Reiki aims to release blockages and encourage harmonious flow. Working at the energetic level often assists in treating the root cause of an ailment especially when there is an emotional or mental component driving symptoms.
How does Reiki work?
The principle of Reiki is very similar to that of ancient acupuncture. Instead of using needles the practitioner’s hands are used to guide ‘Chi’, ‘Ki’ or ‘Prana’ life force energy to promote self-healing and restore the natural flow of energy into the client. The Reiki therapist is a conduit for the healing energy opening the door for the client to balance and align on the spiritual, mental, physical and emotional levels.
The administration of Reiki is transmitted via the practitioner’s hands and are used to guide the energy to where it is most needed within the client. It is absolutely safe and the client can choose whether they wish to be touched lightly with laying of hands or not. Reiki can also be conducted at a distance and works with as much efficacy as with in person treatments.
What is Reiki Used for?
Reiki therapy treatments can be used to be used to facilitate healing and balancing in all spheres of a person’s being. Be it emotional, physical or mental. Reiki can also be catalyst for spiritual growth and transformation.
