Reiki is a Japanese method of healing . Its name translates to mean “Universal Life Energy”; a reference to the energy and life all around us.
Reiki, applied for the purpose of healing, addresses the body, mind and spirit. It accelerates the body’s ability to heal physical ailments. It also opens the mind and spirit to causes of disease and pain. Most importantly, it addresses the human need to take responsibility for one’s own life and joys in order to achieve balanced wellness.
The Usui System of Reiki is a natural healing art which is administered by “laying on hands” on another living being. It is based on the idea that an unseen “life force energy” flows through all beings and causes life. If one’s “life force energy” is low, we are more likely to get sick or feel stress. Conversely, if the life force energy is high, we are more capable of being happy and healthy. Reiki uses hand contact to transfer life force energy from those that have high levels to those whose levels are deficient.
