Reiki is a spiritual healing art with its roots in Japanese origin. It is a subtle and effective form of energy work using guided life force energy- which flows through all living things.
The word Reiki comes from the Japanese (Rei) “Universal Life” and (Ki) “Energy" or vital force, universal life energy. Ki has the same meaning as Chi /Qi in Chinese, Prana in Sanskrit or what science calls biofield energy.
Reiki Practitioners understand that everyone has the ability to connect with their own healing energy and may use it to strengthen energy within and to assist others.
It is believed that a person’s “ki” or energy should be strong and free flowing.
When this is true a person’s body and mind is in a positive state of health.
When the energy becomes weak or absent/blocked, it may lead to symptoms of physical or emotional imbalance.
A Reiki session will ease tension and stress, supporting the body to facilitate an environment for healing on all levels – physical, mental, and emotional.
A session is pleasant and relaxing and is utilized for wellness.
Reiki is believed to have been associated with Mikao Usui who is credited with rediscovering the root system now called Reiki. His tradition and methods were passed through several grandmasters of Reiki. Today, Reiki takes many forms, however, The Usui System of Natural Healing is still the form most widely practiced. Practitioners and Master Teachers are trained through an initiation process where Masters pass on their knowledge and expertise to their students.
Reiki is a great tool for stress reduction and relaxation. Many people use Reiki for wellness. Reiki is not a cure for a disease or illness, but it may assist the body in creating an environment to facilitate healing. Reiki is a great tool to use as a complement to traditional medicine and is practiced in many hospitals and medical care settings.
