What is Reiki?

dr usuiReiki is a simple healing system developed in Japan, treating the mind, body and spirit, bringing you back into balance.  Founded by Dr Mikao Usui back in the early 20th century, the word Reiki loosely means “universal energy”.

Your body has an energy field or chakras, sometimes these become blocked and then physical and mental illness can take hold.  During a healing treatment, Reiki energy is given through placing hands on or over the head and torso in a sequence of positions.  By clearing these blockages with Reiki, the energy is able to flow throughout the physical body and the energy field surrounding it, restoring the body’s own natural healing system.   With a similar principle to Homeopathy, Reiki is completely safe and can’t interfere with any prescription medication you may be taking.

You lie fully clothed on a treatment couch, with gentle music playing and with no effort or concentration from you, you’ll draw Reiki to wherever you need it in your body to clear the blockage so that energy can run freely again.

Everyone has their own unique experience during their healing session, most either feel extreme heat or cold, tingling sensations, bright lights or colours and an overwhelming feeling of calm and peacefulness.

To change a situation in your life, you have to change your attitude!  Dr Usui developed five principles to help improve the quality of a person’s life, these form an important part of the healing process at the heart of Reiki healing and are just as relevant today as when Dr Usui developed them, they’re listed below :
