What is Reiki?

Reiki (pronounced ray-key) is a Japanese technique for stress reduction, promoting healing and relaxation. The word Reiki is 2 Japanese words – “Rei” meaning “God’s wisdom or the Higher Power” and “ki” meaning “life force energy”. Together they mean “spiritually guided life force energy”.  It is a form of natural healing with the use of universal energy that flows through a person who has been reiki attuned to another person, by the laying on of hands.

History

The origins of Reiki are ancient, but it was Dr Mikao Usui of Japan who developed his practice of Reiki over a hundred years ago.  After spending 21 days fasting on a sacred mountain, he was in deep meditation when he was given the symbolic tools and information that now form the basis of Reiki. A Hawaiian Japanese woman, Hawayo Takata, received her reiki attunements at all 3 levels and became Reiki Master in 1939 and then brought the practice of Reiki to the West (by opening her Reiki Clinic in Hawaii and training others) where she spent the rest of her life until her death in 1980. Between 1970 and 1980 she had made 22 others Reiki Masters.

What happens during a treatment?

The treatment will take place lying down, no clothing will be removed except for shoes and spectacles. A brief medical history may be taken. The reiki practitioner will place hands gently on the body or just above in a pre-determined sequence of hand positions. Each position will be held for several minutes. These are non-intrusive and cover the front and back of the body. During treatment, you may feel sensations such as heat, tingling, coolness, or throbbing. You may fall asleep, have a sense of wellbeing, or feel energized.
