What is Reiki? 


Reiki, a Japanese word meaning "universal life energy," is a gentle yet powerful form of energy healing. Reiki channels energy through the hands to the recipient, promoting balance, calm, and well-being.

By learning how to move energy and direct it towards specific energetic systems, Reiki can promote balance within. Reiki is non-evasive, light, and relaxing, making it a popular holistic treatment. 


Where does Reiki originate from? 


Reiki has its roots in early 20th-century Japan, founded by Mikao Usui after a spiritual awakening on Mount Kurama. During a 21-day meditation and fasting period, Usui experienced an amazing breakthrough that led to the development of Reiki as a form of energy healing. 

Usui combined his newfound knowledge with traditional Japanese therapies, Buddhism, and other spiritual practices. The result was forming a new energy healing method aimed at promoting spiritual growth, self-improvement, and holistic well-being.

The technique spread quickly throughout Japan and later to the rest of the world, evolving into various branches. Practising Reiki on yourself, others, and even animals is possible. 


Benefits of Reiki


Physically, some clients notice reduced pain, accelerated healing, and improved symptoms of chronic conditions. Some people experience a reduction in headaches and insomnia. 

Emotionally, Reiki often encourages a sense of peace and tranquillity, reducing stress and anxiety. People also report a reduction in fatigue and exhaustion.


Mentally, it can enhance clarity and focus, aiding in overcoming challenges and fostering personal growth. It may also be an effective mood booster, promoting a positive mindset.


Spiritually, Reiki can help  individuals find a deeper sense of purpose and alignment, often leading to a profound sense of connection and fulfilment. 

Whether utilised as a complementary therapy to conventional medicine or as a standalone wellness practice, Reiki's non-invasive approach provides a nurturing path to well-being and self-discovery.
