What is Reiki?
Reiki ( Ray Key ) translated means, "universal life force energy" Reiki was rediscovered in Japan by Mikao Usui towards the end of the 19th century. During a 21 day retreat to fast & meditate on Mt. Kurama, he experienced Reiki energy personally, which led to the Reiki healing system. He first used Reiki on himself & his family & then began to use it to help others as well. He found it to be effective in treating all forms of illness & it helped to bring about a balancing of the mind, body & spirit. He set out to reach all he could with the healing touch of Reiki & founded a clinic as a mode by which to teach it to his students.
Everyone has within them the ability to utilize Reiki, giving each person the ability to take their health & wellness into their own hands. The system consists of 3 or 4 degrees, depending upon the school, & how the degrees are divided. Reiki is intelligent, flowing & ever changing. It is not a religion, and has no dogma attached to it therefore is suitable for use by all. Reiki is pure energy & is an ancient, safe, hands on technique which brings relief from stress & a sense of deep relaxation.
Reiki in & of itself is a teacher, giving us the ability to help ourselves & those around us. Reiki is not a substitute for professional medical care, but can easily be used along side it, promoting healing & well being.
