What is Reiki?
Reiki Healing, also known as Reiki Therapy, is a natural and powerful hands-on treatment for many chronic and acute conditions. It’s believed to be around 2500 years old and was lost for centuries until it was rediscovered by Dr Mikao Usui in the 19th century.
Reiki; rei meaning “spiritually guided” and ki meaning “Life-force Energy”
How does Reiki Work?
Many people, including Reiki therapists believe that everything in the universe is connected by a single force of energy of which everything is made and by which everything is surrounded. During a Reiki treatment, this “universal life-force energy” is drawn through the Reiki healer via purified channels, before moving into the client’s own energy system. Here it works to removes blocks in the client’s energy centres (chakras) restoring the natural balance and flow of energy within the client. Once the natural flow of energy is restored the healing process can begin by increasing the body’s own abilities to self-heal. Reiki treatments also increases the body’s physical energy levels and produces harmony and a state of profound relaxation.
Because there is no belief system attached to Reiki and it is not a religion, a client does not have to believe in it for it to work. As Dr Mikao Usui discovered over 100 years ago, Reiki is a simple, natural and pure form of hands-on healing and that it is the universal life-force energy that produced the healing and not the Reiki practitioner who is merely the channel for the energy. As such, we do not believe in the recent trend in Reiki Angels, Reiki crystals or Reiki cards and we do not sell any of the associated modern day Reiki paraphernalia.
What is Reiki used for?
Reiki can be used to successfully to treat many conditions and is especially effective for chronic pain such as that caused by arthritis and also for speeding up the healing process after illness or injury and in the treatment of stress and anxiety. As the life-force energy is in and around everything it can also be an effective treatment for many animal illnesses and is becoming more and more popular in the treatment of pets and even race horses.
What does Reiki feel like?
Although everyone experiences Reiki Healing differently, Reiki is one of the most comfortably relaxing therapies. Some notice a gentle tingling sensation, some a feeling of warmth or heat while others feel only relaxation during a session. At the end of a session some people feel so deeply relaxed they don’t want to move or may even fall asleep, while others feel rejuvenated and full of energy and can’t wait to get going.
