What is Reiki?
Reiki is an ancient form of healing which involves “laying on of hands”. The client is fully clothed, laid on a massage table and made warm with a blanket. The therapist acts as a channel of universal energy whereby the client naturally absorbs universal “chi” through the hands of the therapist to balance the body and its endocrine glands (chakras).
Reiki means “Universal Life Energy” and is made up of two Japanese characters “Rei” and “Ki”. “Rei” means both universal (in the sense of everywhere) and also spiritual wisdom. “Ki” means the same as “Chi” ie. The vital force found in every living thing. It can be said to be “spiritually guided life force energy”
The discipline and practice of Reiki was rediscovered by a scholar and mystic Dr Mikao Usui. He set out to discover how the ancient sages, mystics and religious teachers were able to heal. He studied Buddhist scriptures and teachings for many years and in a final intensive meditative retreat he was empowered and came to understand the meanings and uses of symbols and texts of Sanskrit and Tibetan.
I use Reiki symbols taught by Dr Usui to promote happiness and good health within the client. As a therapist, I too receive Reiki at the same time as my client. I do not use my own energy (although it is helpful I am in a loving place mentally), I am simply a “channel” for Universal energy.
Over the years of using this safe, loving and simple form of healing, the results have amazed me. I have watched some of my clients find inner peace and become warmer, more loving individuals. Life takes on a calmer, more peaceful meaning. I encourage the client to find Reiki when the client feels the time is right for them. Reiki is particularly good for helping depression and anxiety as well as relieving pain and symptoms of illness.
