There is a non-physical energy (called “Prana” by many Asian cultures, “Chi” by the Chinese, and “Ki” by the Japanese) that exists and gives life to every living organism.
For thousands of years people have sought ways to harness this energy in an effort to control and direct its flow in and around our bodies. Acupuncture, Feng Shui, Meditation, Tai Chi, and Yoga are among the disciplines that have been developed and used to harness this energy, with much success and like those ancient practices Reiki is a form of hands-on healing that dates back thousands of years to its origins in India and the East. It is another method that allows the practitioner to access this pure energy and allow it to flow through them and heal themselves and others.
The original name and techniques were lost due to the traditional method of passing down knowledge by word of mouth, thankfully, it was re-discovered by a Japanese monk and scholar named Dr. Mikao Usui who called the technique “Reiki,” meaning “Universal Life Force.”
Clearing energy blockages and encouraging this life-giving energy to flow unencumbered throughout the body is the goal of every Reiki treatment. This holistic modality works on the body, mind, and spirit to stimulate the body’s own natural healing abilities.
Reiki energy is channelled through me during a treatment. It enhances your body’s natural healing ability and promotes wellbeing.
Reiki treatment stands on its own as a healing practice and is also safely used to support orthodox and complementary medicine. Reiki doesn’t interfere with or diminish the intended effects of other health or medical practices.
