What Is Reiki?

Reiki  handsReiki is a form of non-invasive and life-enhancing energy healing that was developed in 1922 by Dr Mikao Usui in Japan. The word Reiki means Universal Life-Force Energy and it is the healing power of the Universe which is all around us.

Reiki goes to all levels of our being – Mind, Body, Spirit and Emotions – wherever we need it most. It brings balance and harmony. It can revitalize or relax. It enhances the healing process and supports us on our journey of Spiritual Enfoldment.

Reiki will complement and increase the effectiveness of most kinds of medication and treatment, whether allopathic, homeopathic or complementary. It is completely safe, benign, natural and holistic. As a means of healing, it has been in use for thousands of years. It is an ideal way of treating disease as there is no pressure exerted, no manipulation or massage. Hence Reiki is an ideal treatment for anyone even the very young, elderly, those recovering from surgery and pregnant women.

It is worth noting that Reiki energy always comes from the unlimited Divine Source, and so the practitioner’s energy is never depleted. In fact, the practitioner’s energy level increases as the Reiki flows. Both practitioner and recipient benefit from the energy.
