What is Reiki?
Reiki (ray-key) is an ancient Japanese folk art that may have originated in Tibet and uses universal life force energy to heal.
Reiki is given through the hands of an individual who has been attuned to the energy.
What is its origin?
Reiki was rediscovered by Mikao Usui about 100 years ago. The knowledge has been passed on through Chujiro Hayashi, one of Usui's students in Japan, and Hawayo Takata, who brought the practice to the western world after experiencing a healing in Hayashi's clinic. Takata initiated 22 Masters, both Usui and Hayashi initiated 10-16 Masters. The Reiki Society that was initially formed by Usui continues to meet in Japan today.
Today, Reiki is accepted throughout the world as an effective complementary approach to healing.
What are some effects of Reiki?
One person expressed the following after her first Reiki treatment:
I want to thank you again for that most incredible experience with Reiki. The few days following I did feel rather vulnerable so I kept myself surrounded with good people. It is as if many "blocks" I've had in myself have faded away from having this experience, I am much more conscious of myself and my actions, and my artistic side has flourished largely, more so than usual. The centered feeling continues to grow, and being back at school my typical stress levels have dramatically diminished. even facing another set of midterms! I guess its fair to say that there isn't much that HASN'T improved for me as a result of this!
What is a Reiki treatment?
Typically, a Reiki treatment will take about an hour. The client remains fully clothed, either lying down, or seated in a chair. The practitioner will place his hands on specific spots on the head, torso and back; usually leaving the hands in each position for about five minutes. Normally there will be a deep sense of relaxation, and at times there may be a sensation of the energy working in the body.
What is a Reiki "distance treatment"?
Distance is not an issue with regard to Reiki treatments. A trained Reiki practitioner can treat a personal who is half way around the world, as long as the person has given permission. To discuss this type of treatment for yourself, or a loved one who desires it, please complete the form on the Distance Treatment page.
Will Reiki interfere with other treatments or procedures?
No, a Reiki treatment will not interfere with other types of treatment. In fact, the usual experience of people who are receiving "dual" treatments find that healing occurs more rapidly.
