How does Reiki work?


When the flow of the “Life Force Energy” is disrupted, weakened or blocked, emotional or health problems tend to occur. Imbalances can be caused from many situations occurring in our lives, such as: emotional or physical trauma, injury, negative thoughts and feelings, including fear, worry, doubt, anger, anxiety, negative self-talk, toxicity, nutritional depletion, destructive lifestyle and relationships, neglect of self and lack of love for oneself or others. The Reiki energy has a wisdom of its own and will flow wherever is needed helping the body return to its natural perfect state.

During a Reiki session, the person receiving Reiki lies or sits, fully clothed, while the practitioner places his hands lightly on or a few inches over the person’s head and body.The energy  is channeled through the hands of the Reiki Healer into the body and aura of the receiver. Reiki opens the mind and spirit to the causes of disease and pain.

A treatment feels like a wonderful glowing radiance that flows through and around you. Reiki treats the whole person including body, emotions, mind and spirit creating many beneficial effects that include relaxation and feelings of peace and security. It increases spiritual awareness and progress and is a means for each person to access the richness of his soul and discover his own great potential.

Reiki can be done as distance healing and also works in conjunction with all other medical or therapeutic methods to improve results, promote recovery and relieve side effects. This Hands on Healing technique is great to release stress and induce deep relaxation.

Brief History of Reiki


The traditional story of Reiki relates to Dr Mikao Usui from Japan who in the late 1800′s began a quest to re-discover a Universal Energy that could heal, irrespective of the mental and or physical state of the person applying it. He fasted and meditated for 21 days at Mount Kuriyama and thus received the Reiki ability. Dr.Usui applied what he learned and developed what is now known as “The Usui System of Natural Healing”, and opened several clinics in Japan helping the ones in need .After late 1930`s Reiki was brought to Hawaii and then to the other countries in the West by Mrs. Takata – a Reiki Master herself, and has become very popular over the last twenty years.

“The secret art of inviting happiness
The miraculous medicine of all diseases
Just for today, do not anger
Do not worry and be filled with gratitude
Devote yourself to your work. Be kind to people!”          Dr. Usui Mikao
