WHAT IS REIKI?
REIKI IS PURE UNCONDITIONAL LOVE. IT IS UNIVERSAL ENERGY.
Reiki is an ancient healing method which originated many centuries ago and was rediscovered during the 19th century in Japan by a Japanese Buddhist Mikao Usui.
Reiki has since been adapted across varying cultural traditions.
Rei – means Universal Life/ spirit
Ki – means Life force , which is energy that flows through all living things.
Reiki is based on the principal that the therapist can channel the “Universal energy” through the recipient by means of touch or the laying on of hands.
Reiki is pure unconditional love. It is universal energy that can do no harm and only serves to enhance ones own healing abilities.
Due to so much stress in our daily lives our energies become depleted. As a resultwe become drained and our mind and body can become “out of balance”.
When we are out of balance we become unwell and physical symptoms show up in the body as “Dis-Ease”.
Reiki can replenish all the energy that we require, creating balance once again. This in turn restores Physical, mental and emotional wellbeing.
