What is Reiki?
Rei (Universal/Spiritual Life) Ki (Energy).
Reiki is a spiritual healing art with its roots in Japanese origin. The word Reiki comes from the Japanese word (Rei) which means “Universal Life” and (Ki) which means “Energy”. Reiki is not associated with any religion nor is it a massage. It is a subtle and effective form of energy work using the guidance of 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 in order to be well and balanced. When the energy becomes weak or blocked it could lead to symptoms of physical or emotional imbalance.
A Reiki session can help ease anxiety, stress and discomfort. It can help the body create a strong and stable environment to deal with negative triggers thereby keeping the body in a state of wellness physically, mentally and emotionally. A Reiki session is relaxing and nurturing and refreshing.
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 simple and natural healing method that strengthens one’s own vital force (Ki, Qi, Chi, Prana, Mana, Ruach, Baraka) similar to yoga, acupuncture and meditation but in its own gentle and unique way.
A Reiki practitioner channels Universal Energy to the recipient energising the recipient’s own inner energy to assist in the healing process. Reiki helps re-align and bring balance to the physical, emotional, mental and spiritual being. It activates your inner ‘Ki’ to assist your body in healing itself in a beautiful, natural and positive way.
Reiki can be had in conjunction with any complementary or conventional treatment as it helps enhance the effects of the treatment.
