Reiki is a Japanese technique for stress reduction and relaxation that also promotes healing, it is considered to be one of the gentlest healing systems with no side effects.
It was developed by a Japanese Buddhist called Mikao Usui. The word can be broken down in to two meanings. ‘Rei’ means God’s wisdom or a higher power. ‘Ki’ is the life force energy. When combined, Reiki is the spiritually guided life force energy.
Reiki is a laying on of the hands system and is based on the idea that an unseen ‘life force energy’ flows through us and is what causes us to be to alive. If one’s energy is low, then we are more likely to get sick or feel stress and if it is high and balanced, we are more capable of being happy and healthy.
Each person will experience something different, ranging from warmth to tingling sessions and even for some a coolness. Reiki treats the whole person including body, mind, and spirit, thus creating many beneficial effects that include relaxation and feelings of peace, security and well-being.
Reiki is a simple natural and safe method of spiritual healing and self-improvement that everyone can use. There are many amazing stories of wonderful healings after people have received Reiki. It is as a treatment offered in many hospices, and in some cases in the NHS.
Reiki is such an amazing therapy to receive, gift to another and to learn.
