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.

Dr. Mehmet Oz on national television called Reiki “the most important alternative medicine treatment of all.” 

"The doctor of the future will give no medication, but will interest his patients in the care of the human frame, diet and in the cause and prevention of disease."

- Thomas Edison

 

 

“Reiki is perhaps the purest hands-on therapy practice and technique amongst all the world’s healing modalities—user-friendly, relevant, and appealing to people of all backgrounds.” 

—Professor Sasi Velupillai, Reiki Master & 7th-Generation Spiritual Teacher from India

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 and spiritual seeker, Dr. Mikao Usuisan, 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, offering rebalancing and contributing to overall wellbeing.  Reiki is now being offered in hospitals, clinics, private practices, and in homes.  Reiki may be used effectively on people, animals, plants, and even on projects.
