What is REIKI?

The art of the Reiki healing method was developed in Japan in the early 1900’s by Dr. Mikao Usui. His intention was to learn how to facilitate healing energy, as Jesus and the Buddha did.

In short, his studies, and also his dedication to connecting with a higher power through meditation led him to develop the Reiki healing modality. The word Reiki itself translates to Universal life force energy, which flows through all living things.

Reiki is holistic in nature, meaning it works on all body levels, physical, mental, emotional and spiritual. When one receives a Reiki treatment from a certified practitioner, much like “the laying of hands” in the Christian tradition, this loving energy flows through practitioner to the client, flowing to wherever it is needed. This contributes to removing blockages in the energy field of the client, restoring areas that are depleted and bringing balance back into their body, mind and spirit.

NOTE: Through initiation and connection with the Reiki lineage a certified practitioner is not sharing their energy, but rather, acting as a conduit/facilitator for the Reiki energy to flow through to the client to serve their highest and best good.
