Reiki is a complementary healing therapy, founded by Mikao Usui in Japan, in the early part of the the 20th century. Reiki, pronounced ‘ray-key’, is a gentle and effective system of healing which activates the body’s own natural ability to heal itself. As a natural healing system, it can benefit everyone, from young children to adults and is a safe, non-invasive treatment.
The name Reiki originates from the Japanese words ‘rei’ meaning ‘universal’ and ‘ki’ meaning ‘energy’. This universal energy is channeled through the practitioner to the recipient and works on all levels of the mind, body, emotion and spirit, allowing for total harmony and balance to be restored. Reiki can also promote self development, therefore allowing you to be at your optimum to deal with all aspects of life.
Treatments with Reiki energy reduce stress within the body, thereby inducing a state of relaxation. The body can then be allowed to begin the healing process. It is an extremely relaxing experience and the benefits are immediate. All diseases and ailments can be helped with Reiki and it is safe to use in conjunction with other complementary therapies and conventional medical treatments. Reiki produces a feeling of total wellbeing and this has a very positive effect on the immune system.
