Reiki [rei: soul/spirit & ki: vital energy]

What is Reiki?

Reiki is a Japanese energy healing technique. The predominate form of reiki practiced throughout the world today, also known as Usui reiki, was created by Dr. Mikao Usui in the early 20th century. It’s a complementary or alternative health approach. Reiki does not directly cure diseases or illnesses. Instead, it’s used as a way to manage symptoms and improve general well-being.

Reiki is love. Love is wholeness. Wholeness is balance. Balance is well-being. Well-being is freedom from disease.

Dr. Mikao Usui

How is Reiki used?

Reiki is used to treat physical ailments without using pressure, manipulation, or massage. It is more than a physical therapy, it is hollistic – treating the whole system – balancing, healing, harmonizing all aspects of the person [physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual]. The potential positive benefits of reiki can enhance your overall well-being, leading to improvements in sleep patterns, self-confidence, and depression levels, leaving you with a sense of calm, inner peace, and relaxation. Reiki can lower levels of pain, anxiety, and fatigue.
Reiki is non-invasive and doesn’t have any harmful side effects. The relaxation response that happens with Reiki may benefit these symptoms:
• headache • tension • insomnia • nausea.
