WHAT IS REIKI?
 
Reiki (pronounced “Ray-kee”) is a simple and powerful hands-on healing technique that creates balance and harmony within mind, body, and spirit. The word “Reiki” comes from two Japanese characters or kanji.  The top character “Rei” means “universal soul or spirit” and “ki” means “energy.”  Together the two words represent “universal life-force energy.”

As a healing method, Reiki uses an energy transmittal system in which the Reiki practitioner draws energy from the universe and then transfers this energy through the hands to the self or another.  Physical, mental, emotional and spiritual blocks are dissolved with Reiki, bringing people greater health and overall wellbeing. Reiki works with the body's innate wisdom to facilitate healing where and how it is needed.

HISTORY OF REIKI

In ancient India and later in Tibet, spiritual mystics used Reiki energy privately for purification, healing and enlightenment. Reiki became a lost art until a Japanese monk, Dr. Mikao Usui, rediscovered the techniques in the 1800’s during a quest to discover how Christ and Buddha had healed through touch. In the 1930’s Mrs. Hawayo Takata brought Reiki to the United States from Japan after she had been healed of illness through a series of Reiki treatments.
 
Today Reiki healing is taught and practiced throughout the world as a gentle, effective technique for self-healing and healing others.  Reiki may be used effectively on people, animals, plants, and even on projects.
