What is Reiki?

Reiki is a Japanese technique for stress reduction and relaxation that promotes the body’s natural ability to heal itself.  Reiki uses simple light touch, referred to as hands-on, or no-touch techniques, with the goal of improving the flow of energy in an individual.

Reiki is a Japanese term that comes from two words: “REI” and “KI”. “REI” means “Spirit, Miraculous or Divine; Universal Spirit, or Higher Power” and “KI” means “consciousness, force, vital energy, or breath of life”. Reiki can be literally interpreted as “universal life-force energy”. The Reiki Practitioner is trained to act as a conduit for this “universal life-force energy” to effectively improve the flow of “ki” or “chi” in self and others.

Reiki evolved in Japan from the experience and dedication of its Founder, Dr. Mikao Usui.  While seeking answers to spiritual questions, Dr. Usui was inspired to develop this healing system from ancient teachings through many years of study, research and meditation. He spent the rest of his life practicing and teaching Reiki.

Many variations of Reiki have developed since Dr. Mikao Usui’s first students were attuned. However, one tradition remains, and this tradition dictates that Reiki is taught by Reiki Master/Teachers who have trained in the tradition passed down from Master/Teacher to student.

Potential Benefits of Reiki.

The intention of Reiki is to create deep relaxation, to bring energetic balance, and to promote your body’s natural ability to heal itself. Several studies have been conducted in the field of Reiki which indicate the positive effects of participating in Reiki. Reiki is also used worldwide in Medical Treatment Facilities as a form of complementary treatment.

Reiki:

  • naturally helps to achieve energetic balance (life-force energy, “chi” or “prana”)
  • is a complementary treatment to traditional medicine
  • does not interfere with current or ongoing medical care
  • helps one achieve relaxation to improve overall well-being
  • may reduce stress
  • may enhance the body’s natural ability to heal itself
