The Reiki energy is the fundamental Life Force of the Universe, a conscious and intelligent energy that flows through and nourishes all life. Reiki Healing is an ancient way to activate and harmonise our natural life energy. It has been discovered by Mikao Usui (1865 - 1926) after many years of research, practice and meditation. The word Reiki is made of two Japanese words - Rei which means "God's Wisdom" or the "Higher Power" and Ki which is "life force energy".
The concept of Reiki is that the body has an energy field that is central to its health and proper functioning and this energy travels in certain pathways that can become blocked or weakened. This idea of energy flow in the body is also a central concept in Ayurvedic Medicine and traditional Chinese Medicine.
Reiki practitioners believe that everyone has the potential to access the universal life energy but that overtime, most of people's system become blocked and the energy becomes weakened in them. A reiki practitioner is trained to be able to detect these blockages by using their hands, thoughts and own energy fields to improve the energy flowing into the patient. Reiki is one of the most esoteric alternative medical practices.
A Reiki treatment feels like a wonderful glowing radiance that flows through and around you. Reiki treats the whole person including body, emotions, mind and spirit creating many beneficial effects that include relaxation and feelings of peace, security and wellbeing. Reiki is a natural and safe method of spiritual healing and self-improvement, it can be used alongside other conventional or complementary treatments and often helps to provide emotional support during recovery.
The practice is taught by Reiki Masters /Teachers who have trained in the tradition passed on in person from master to student.
