What is Reiki?
'Reiki' is Japanese. 'Rei' means 'universal', and 'ki' means 'life force energy'. We could say 'sacred energy'.
Reiki is a natural therapy and hands-on healing technique. It gently balances, realigns and recharges the body, and triggers the body's natural healing ability.
Where does Reiki come from?
Originating in Japan and Tibet, the Usui method was developed by Dr. Mikao Usui.
Physicists investigating the matter, conclude, that underlying all matter, in all forms, is energy. Energy vibrates at different rates, thus some objects appear more dense and solid than others. Our body is created from the same energy as that of a mountain. As incomprehensible as it may seem, that which is fragile is from the same source as that which is dense.
All things in the universe are from this one energy source; thus all things are connected and interact and influence each other as one gigantic body.
How does Reiki work?
Reiki is a simple, natural healing system. The practitioner positions their hands at the various energy centers of the body, from head to toe, activating the flow of energy or 'chi'.
One may feel a sensation of warmth, a pulsating rhythm, tingling or calmness, and relaxation.
Reiki increases our natural life force energy, which normally diminishes with age. It brings a state of balance, as yin and yang, on all levels - mind, body, and soul.
Because of the fact that everything is made up of the same energy, distant Reiki sessions could be performed with the exact same efficiency.
