What is Reiki healing?
Reiki (pronounced Ray-key) is a Japanese word meaning Universal Life Energy.
Reiki was discovered by a Japanese man named Mikao Usui in the Mid 1800s. All matter is made from energy; therefore, ultimately we as humans and the entire planet, are energy. Reiki is a system of tapping into this universal source.
The “healer” is a conduit who channels this energy into the recipient. The energy has an intelligence which allows it to penetrate the area with the greatest requirement, working alongside a person’s innate ability to self heal.
What is Reiki used for?
Reiki has many uses but in principle it directs energy to parts of the body that require it the most. In Reiki principles, it is believed that diseases are manifestations of imbalances in your chakra system (a description of which is in chakras). Reiki can help to get the energy back in balance.
