Reiki Healing


Reiki Therapy is an Alternative Healing Modality that was developed in 1922 by Mikao Usui, a Japanese Buddhist.

The word Reiki comes from “Rei” meaning “God’s Wisdom or Higher Power, Universal Life” and “Ki” meaning “Life Force Energy”.
Combined, Reiki means “Spiritually Guided Life Force Energy”.

Reiki is not affiliated with any particular religion or religious practice. It is not massage nor is it based on belief or suggestion.
It is a subtle and effective form of energy work using spiritually guided life force energy.

Reiki is the life energy that flows through all living things.

Reiki Practitioners understand that everyone has the ability to connect with their own healing energy and use it to strengthen energy in themselves and help 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 blocked it could lead to symptoms of physical or emotional imbalance, and unwanted life situations.

Reiki is a safe method of spiritual or energy healing. Virtually all illnesses and conditions can be cured or improved using Reiki and it’s a wonderful complement to western medical treatments because it has no side effects and promotes a happy, positive mindset which is essential to healing.

Mindset is critical. The pollutants that interfere with life force energy are emotions like anger, jealousy, feelings of unworthiness, depression, guilt, insecurity or resentment.

The body is more than just a physical object – it is a combination of the physical body and the thinking/spiritual being.
Together, that makes up “you.” Reiki works holistically to allow the real you – without the physical and emotional pollutants – shine through.
You already have energy in the body but it may be blocked and not flowing smoothly.
During or after a treatment, you may feel the effects of energy being unblocked.

For a time, physical and psychological symptoms may worsen as the mind/body cleanses itself.

This is normal and expected, so if it happens to you, just ride it out and know that the discomfort will pass and you’ll feel much better, soon.
It’s important to support your body as best you can to help you move past the cleansing process.

Reiki does not direct the life force energy or manipulate it in any way – it is about clearing out the pollutants that prevent free energy flow.
The practice of Reiki goes beyond healing physical ailments.

The philosophy encourages living and acting in ways that promote harmony both with others and within oneself.
Making the decision and commitment to improve yourself is an integral part of Reiki teachings.

Both the practitioner and the patient must accept responsibility for one’s own healing, and the Reiki teachings are useful
guidelines for living a better life.

Here is a small sample of what Reiki is all about :

Mikao Usui said :

Just for today, I will not anger.
Just for today, I will not worry.
Just for today, I will be grateful for all my blessings.
Just for today, I will work with honesty and integrity.
Just for today, I will be kind to all living beings.

This is so wonderful because you aren’t agreeing to be perfect all the time – and you can do any of these for just one day…
And then another, and then another.

• Reiki is - literally - very hands-on.
The energy is transmitted by The Reiki Master simply placing their hands on you.

• Reiki is “truly sustainable energy”.
The more you give to other people, the more energized you become yourself.

• Reiki can heal your life - in a truly encompassing sense.
Not only does it stimulate your body’s innate healing abilities and deal with physical ailments, it goes right down to the root of problems, whether physical, mental, or emotional.

• Reiki helps to relax and cope with stress, harmonising body and mind, and aiding meditation.

• Reiki starts a detox process in the body, helping to rid itself of the toxins we take in every day.

• Reiki increases intuition and will help you to become more aware of your life’s purpose.

• Reiki is a spiritual path, re-connecting you with the power and peace within yourself.

• Reiki is not a religion.
It is simply a tool that works with whatever religious path you have chosen for your life - and equally well, if you do not follow traditional religious beliefs.

• Reiki is “applied quantum physics”.
It works on the level that makes the fabric of The Universe, slowly un-doing the illusional world that we created.

• Reiki will change your life.

Once you feel the flow of cosmic energy coming into you, and witness the effect it has on anything it touches, you cannot help but question the established ways of the world.
