What is Reiki


Reiki (pronounced ray-key) is a Japanese hands-on healing modality that promotes deep relaxation, clarity and wellbeing in a person. It corrects the imbalances in one’s energetic system and recharges areas that are low in vitality.

Reiki treatments help the whole person not just the symptoms of a dis-ease or illness and is able to go beyond the physical state to benefit a person’s mental, emotional and spiritual health too.

The word Reiki means ‘spiritual life force energy’ in Japanese. It is the universal energy that exists in every living creature, keeping us vital, humming and growing.

Rei meaning ‘Spiritual or Sacred’ and ki ‘life force energy’. When a person is feeling stressed, anxious or fatigued they are often running low on ‘life force energy’ – so the goal of Reiki is to remove negative energies and restore positive energy back into a person so they can function at their brightest and healthiest again.

For generations, many have used Reiki to successfully to heal themselves and others. However, it is so much more than that. As a complete system taught by Mikao Usui (the Founding Father of Traditional Japanese Reiki) it can provide a beautiful pathway to enlightenment as giving or receiving Reiki, enables a person to connect to their deepest level of Self – that is, God or the Universe.
