mikao usuiThe word REI means Universal and Ki means energy and is Japanese.  We are  familiar with the Chinese word for energy which is Chi and the Indian  which is Prana.  Reiki is a gentle non invasive therapy that works on the free flow of energy around the body much like Acupuncture, Tai Chi and Yoga.  If there is a blockage in this free flow of energy it is believed that this leads to some kind of ‘dis-ease’ manifesting.  When the energy is brought back into balance harmonising mind, body and spirit it can gives the immune system a chance to do it’s work and heal.  This can then enable the individual to make positive life choices such as reducing the need for alcohol and tobacco, eating more healthily, taking exercise and making time for relaxation.

Reiki is safe to use on people and animals of all ages with all conditions it works well alongside conventional treatment.  A treatment is very relaxing and yet can have a profound effect on the recipient.

Reiki was founded by Dr. Mikao Usui in the early 20th century.  He was a practicing Buddhist and had a passion to relieve the suffering of his fellow man.  I am a Usui Reiki Master Teacher, but there are now other types of Reiki being practiced, it is my personal belief that the energy used in all healing therapies comes from the same source and therefore it is up to practitioner and patient to find the one that they are most comfortable with.

The practitioner is able to channel Reiki (universal energy) during a treatment and this can begin to bring the body’s energy systems back into alignment.  I recommend that you begin with 4 treatments, but most people love it so much they want to keep coming back even if it is for a top up once every 2-4 weeks.  In our busy lives it is often the only chance a person will get just for themselves to indulge in total relaxation.

Reiki is a safe and natural ancient technique that can have a positive effect on a myriad of problems working holistically on mind, body, spirit and emotions. Reiki helps with the stresses of modern life that often lead to ‘dis-ease’.

Reiki works well alongside conventional therapies people use Reiki to assist with depression, stress, anxiety, chronic pain, arthritis, fatigue, sleeping problems, the side effects of conventional medicine, fatigue and some digestive disorders.
