What is Reiki, where does it come from and how does it work?

    • Reiki is a Japanese word meaning Universal Life Force Energy… a vital force which permeates all living things.
    • Reiki is also referred to as the Usui System of Natural Healing.
    • Reiki is a HANDS-ON energy therapy that balances, harmonizes and restores us by using the energy centers in the palms of the practitioner’s hands. These hands are placed gently and passively in different positions over or on the body, usually beginning at the head.
    • Psychologically, an hour’s treatment of Reiki is equivalent to 4 hours of sleep; this experience alone makes Reiki a very effective stress reliever.
    • Reiki is known for it’s effectiveness in long-term and acute illnesses.
    • Reiki treatment will help to reduce the roots of ill-health and stimulate a great feeling of general well-being.
    • Reiki treatments are also great as a general tune-up or tonic in times of “normal” health as well as an internal beauty session.
    • Treatments are by appointment only.
    • There is no greater gift one can offer than the energy of Unconditional Love = Reiki
    • What Reiki IS NOT…
    • A religion, a cult, a sect or an organization; so, there is no need to change your present belief system.
      • A form of psychic healing, of mind control, wishful thinking or hypnosis.

    What do you feel during a Reiki energy massage?

    Usually, you will feel a pleasant warming heat on the area that is being treated. This deeply warming relaxation will enable energy blockages within the body to be released and these can show in many ways: such as the desire to continually swallow, cough or sneeze, a rumbling stomach or a rush of energy down the legs. These are great indications that the treatment is working and should not cause any concern. Some people may feel nothing during the treatment itself but this does not mean that it has not worked.

    But actually, most people do not feel anything during a Reiki session because they are sleeeeeping…



    Knowledge is power

    Reiki History

    Reiki originated in Tibet thousands of years ago. Tibetan monks had mastered the science or art of tapping the Universal Life Force Energy for man’s use in healing and self-transformation to eventually lead to spiritual enlightenment. This technique was however, only taught to a selected and disciplined few. It was passed on by one Reiki Master to one student.

    Reiki was rediscovered by Dr Mikao Usui, a theological scholar and teacher, who in the mid 1800’s extensively studied the healings of history’s greatest spiritual leaders. In Buddhist writings he found a way to connect to the Reiki healing energy and he spent the latter part of his life using and teaching this wonderful knowledge.

    In the later 1970’s, Reiki reached the western world through Mrs. Hawayo Takata. Since then, tens of thousands of people have received Reiki worldwide.
