The Japanese word Reiki means ‘Universal Life Energy’, the energy that sustains all life.
In 1922 a Japanese gentleman Mikao Usui developed a method of connecting to this energy which is used primarily for the well-being of the self but can also be transmitted to others.
As a therapy, Reiki is an effective and simple way of tapping into this energy and transferring it for the benefit of the receiver to stimulate the body’s natural healing potential.
Reiki is a safe energy, which can be given to or used by everyone – no matter what age, sex, religion or state of health – with a willingness to be in harmony and balance. It can also be given to plants and animals. It can be given anytime anywhere. The receiver of a Reiki treatment can be laid on a bed, sitting or even standing. The practitioner will gently lay their hands on the body or leave them slightly above the body (there is no need to remove any clothing).
During a Reiki treatment the receiver might feel heat, cold, tingles, twitching, a warm loving feeling, waves of energy or nothing. No two people are alike. No matter what you feel or don’t feel , be sure that Reiki is working for your benefit.
Having been attuned to Reiki yourself, you can carry out self-treatments. Giving Reiki to yourself is the best way of obtaining maximum benefit and regaining the balance of mind, body and soul that is the essence of good health and well-being.
