Reiki – what is it?
Reiki originates in Japan – it means Universal Life Force Energy, and all living things have it. It was developed by Dr Mikao Usui in the late 1800”s. A student of Theology, he was intrigued by Christ and The Buddha’s ability to heal.
When this energy, which flows through all living things, is imbalanced or weakened, we feel the effects as dis-ease, dis-comfort or fatigue. A Reiki practitioner is trained to help the body rebalance this energy through very subtle movements of hand positioning, off the body, to assist the body to rebalance itself.
The art of Reiki
Reiki practitioners are trained by Reiki Masters, and attuned in the art of Reiki. Sessions are very gentle and relaxing and generally last 60 minutes.
Today, many hospitals and medical practitioners include Reiki therapy as an assistance to promoting good health.
