Reiki is a Japanese healing art that was synthesized into being by Mikao Usui in the late 1800's in Japan. Mikao Usui was a devout Buddhist, who, in his intense desire to understand and work with methods of medicine and healing, developed Reiki. "Reiki" is a Japanese word for the concept: "Universal Life Energy". Reiki's initial stages can be learned by anyone regardless of their personal philosophy and/or spiritual belief system.
Through the initiations of Reiki comes a "re-awakening", a re-opening of the stronger healing potential that lies within us all.
In Reiki, the healing energy is allowed to flow into ourselves, and then WE, act as a vehicle - through which this energy can be passed on to another individual via our hands. It becomes natural to touch someone and allow this healing energy to flow when someone is in pain, and to assist in relieving this pain. A Reiki treatment restores balance and harmony to the whole person, bringing about a sense of wellness.
A client remains dressed while receiving a Reiki treatment. The person being treated is not "healed" by the Reiki practitioner. The client's healing comes from the "universal life force" that flows through the practitioner. The person giving Reiki is not drained of their own life energy, but actually is replenished in the process. Reiki also protects the practitioner from taking on the pain and dysfunction of another person.
Reiki can relieve pain and acute problems quite rapidly. Whatever manifests itself physically usually also has components on the emotional, mental, and spiritual levels. Reiki honors the ecology of the person by working on all these levels. Reiki goes beyond the symptoms to treat the root cause of the dis-ease. When we treat only the symptoms, we do not always get to the true basis of the illness.
