Reiki (pronounced Ray-Key) is a system of natural, hands-on healing originating in Japan. Reiki means “universal life energy”, the vital energy around and within all living things. This system of natural healing evolved in Japan from the experience and dedication of Dr Mikao Usui (d. 1926).

Dr Usui was asked by his students how any healing occured and thereon his quest began, which inspired him to develop this healing system from ancient teachings after many years of study, research and meditation. He spent to rest of his life practising and teaching Reiki. Today Reiki continues to be taught by tradition, passed down from Master to student. There is no belief system attached to Reiki so anyone can receive or learn to give a Reiki treatment, the only prerequisite is the desire to be healed.

A Reiki Treatment

The method of receiving a Reiki treatment from a practitioner is a very simple process. The recipient simply lies on a couch and relaxes. If they are unable to lie down, the treatment can be given in a sitting position. The main thing is for the recipient to be as comfortable as possible.

Reiki passes through anything, even plaster casts, and therefore there is no need to remove any clothing during a healing session. I gently place my hands non-intrusively in a sequence of positions which cover the whole body. In this way the mind, body and emotions are treated at the same time, rather than specific symptoms. A full treatment usually takes 1 to 1.5 hours, with each position held for several minutes.

Learning Reiki

The gift of Reiki can be attained in 2-4 consecutive days. Students attending a First Degree Reiki course will be initiated, or attuned, to the energy by me. I will also teach a sequence of hand positions for treating oneself and other people. The treatment of animals and plants will also be taught.

It is possible to heal at any level of being; physical, mental, emotional or spiritual. Acute injuries can be helped to heal very quickly but more chronic illness takes longer. In some cases such as terminal illness, there is not enough time for the progress of the disease to be reversed. However, in such cases there is usually great benefit and enhancement of the quality of life, giving a sense of peace and acceptance during the time remaining.

Reiki healing can be given anywhere at any time, as no special equipment is needed. The practitioner is a channel through which the energy is drawn by the need of imbalance in the recipient. Neither person has to use any effort, will, or concentration during this process.

As running water smoothes the jagged edges of a rock until it is small enough to roll away, Reiki flows to the areas of need, soothing pain and supporting the body’s natural ability to heal itself. Reiki supports all forms of treatment, both orthodox and complimentary.
