What is Reiki?
Reiki, discovered by Dr Mikao Usui in early 20th Century Japan, is an ancient technique used to stimulate and synchronise your body’s natural life energy. When broken down, it means two things:
- Rei: universal, essence of spirit
- Ki: energy, life force
Reiki energy embodies the fundamental life force of the universe – an intelligent energy that flows through and nourishes everything around us. And it has a number of values that can be summed up like this:
Just for today I will give thanks for my many blessings.
Just for today I will let go of worry.
Just for today I will let go of anger.
Just for today I will do my work honestly.
Just for today I will be kind to my neighbours and every living thing.
Reiki practitioners don’t heal people in the traditional sense of the term. They simply channel energy through their hands into the person they’re treating. They don’t pass on their personal energy or absorb yours. Instead, they pass on the Reiki to harness your body’s inherent healing powers.
