REIKI, pronounced “Ray Kee” is an ancient Japanese therapy, which seemed to disappear for many years, until it was rediscovered by Dr Mikao Usui. The knowledge of which has been passed down from teacher to student through a special attunement process, which is believed to create and open channels for the energy to flow along. The literal meaning of Reiki translating as REI – the universal energy and KI – the fundamental life force.
Reiki is an ancient Japanese technique for stress reduction, relaxation, and promoting well-being and is currently classed as an alternative therapy, but is becoming more mainstream. Reiki, I believe, is an incredibly relaxing healing energy which is transferred through the Practitioner to the Client with the gentle energy being transmitted through the Practitioners hands to points on the Clients body, it is completely non-intrusive. Clients remained fully clothed during treatment and can choose to remain seated or relax on a treatment table. Reiki energy goes where there is imbalance in the body. It treats the whole person – body, emotions, mind, and spirit, and, for many, creates a feeling of profound relaxation and peacefulness.
