Usui Reiki

The ancient healing system of Reiki has its roots in ancient Tibet. 

The word Reiki is made of two Japanese words – Rei which means “God’s Wisdom or the Higher Power” and Ki which is “life force energy”. Reiki means “spiritually guided life force energy”. Reiki healing originally known as Usui Shiki Ryoho or Usui Reiki was founded by Dr Mikao Usui. A healing system taught in the West since late 1930’s and until 1990’s the story of Reiki was handed down orally from teacher to student in a traditional way. Usui’s personal interest in ancient Sanskrit texts and his deep connection to Spirit led him to research the relationship between the nature of energy healing and the wisdom of the Sanskrit script teachings. He travelled widely, researched Christian scriptures and Buddhist teachings, including Japanese and Sanskrit Sutras (teachings) containing information about energetic bodies and chakras.

Surrounding the physical body is a body of energy known as the aura, present from birth, radiating at a higher energy frequency so is more difficult to see with the naked eye. The state of the aura is a very important element in the health of the individual. If damaged or blocked and not cleaned and healed, illness or disease can manifest in the physical body. Everything that happens to us, positive or negative, affects the aura. Reiki energy vibrates at a very high rate and is not usually visible.

Reiki is Love, channelled into each chakra through the practitioner’s hands bringing about stress reduction and relaxation that promotes healing. By “laying on hands” the unseen “life force energy” flows through us enabling us to be alive. If “life force energy” is low, we are more likely to get sick or feel stress, when high, we are happier and healthier. Reiki is spiritual in nature and will work whether you believe in it or not. A treatment can feel like a wonderful glowing radiance that flows through and around you. Many have reported miraculous results.
