What is Reiki?
Developed by Dr. Mikao Usui in the early 1900's, Reiki is an alternative Japanese healing therapy used for the restoration of harmony within us. It offers stress relief, deep relaxation and treatment of physical, emotional, and mental ailments.
Similar to the study of physics, Reiki is the understanding that everything in our natural world is composed of energy and all stems from the same energetic source. Reiki is the source energy with which all is created, connected and sustained.
The term REIKI was derived from the combination of the two Japanese words
REI : Universal + KI: Life Force Energy = Universal Life Force Energy
How does it work?
When our Ki (energy) is low, unaligned or blocked in either of our 7 major energy centers (know as Chakras) or other areas within our body, we are more likely to become stressed or ill.
During a Reiki session, the practitioner acts as a conduit for Reiki Energy (Source Energy) to be channeled in through their crown chakra and out the palms of their hands directly into the clients body for the purpose of physical, emotional and mental healing.
Although each experience is profoundly unique, a Reiki session is often described as a wonderful glowing radiance that flows through and around you. With Reiki treating the clients entire being (body, emotions, mind and spirit) many beneficial effects such as feelings of deep relaxation, release, serenity, and wellbeing are often described as well as more restful sleep.
