Reiki

What does Reiki mean?

 

Rei- stands for Universal Consciousness, the Unseen Source of Wellbeing.
Ki- means Life Energy, Life Force.

Combined, Reiki means: the Universal Life Energy, Conscious Life Force. 

Eastern medicine systems work with this energy, which they believe flows through all living things and is vital to wellbeing. This energy is known as 'Ki' in Japan, 'Chi' in China and 'Prana' in India. 

What is Reiki Healing?

 

Reiki is a unique system of energy healing. It is a gentle, non-invasive and complementary technique, practised by transmitting universal life force, primarily through the hands of the practitioner.

 

Reiki was originally developed by Japanese practitioner Mikao Usui in the early 1900s. He developed the “Usui System of Natural Reiki Healing”, one of the most powerful yet gentle ways of healing with energy. Today, the Usui Reiki method is widely known, celebrated and used in the Western world.

 

It provides a gateway to inner peace and promotes the whole wellbeing of the human system: mind, body and soul.  It is important to note that Reiki is not part of any type of religion or belief system.

How does it work?

 

During a Reiki session, the universal healing energy is channelled through the hands of a professionally trained and attuned Reiki Practitioner or Reiki Master to the client.

The client can be sitting or lying down depending on the area of the body that needs healing and for their utmost comfort. The client is advised to wear comfortable clothing. The practitioner puts their hands gently near or on the client’s clothed body. A reiki practitioner aims to change and balance the ‘energy fields’ in and around the client's body. The Chakra system is used as a guiding tool during the session.

 

What is the duration of a Reiki session?

 

A session typically will last between 30 and 60 minutes. However, consecutive sessions are explored once the client and the practitioner discuss the needs of the client. They decide the frequency and length of sessions and plan a way forward.
