We live in a world of energy that nourishes and maintains all living things. Ever since the beginning of the universe, all energy has remained consent, it cannot be destroyed, only ‘relocated’. When this energy flows uninterrupted there is balance and harmony within and around us, and we experience a sense of well being. “Reiki” (ray-key) is Japanese for ‘universal life energy, and is also a word used to describe a system of natural healing, This tradition was founded by Mikao Usui in the early 20th century and evolved as a result of his research, experience and dedication. There are many variations of Reiki, but in essence Reiki treatments can help the body physically, emotionally or spiritually. There is no belief system attached to Reiki, practically anyone can receive or learn to give Reiki, the only prerequisite is the desire to help or be helped.
Everything in the universe is made up of energy. Trees, plants, even stones have energy. It is this energy that keeps everything together. Ancient Indian texts called Sanskrits first described our energy centres. They described them as “Chakras“. Its the energy that flows within our Charkras and meridians that is utilised during a Reiki treatment to create an intergration and wholeness within ourselves.
A Reiki treatment is a process that anyone can enjoy in the normal course of their life. Reiki can be used alongside other conventional or complementary treatment and often helps to provide emotional support during recovery. Reiki is a truly personal experence. Everyone will have different experences and sensations depending on their personal requirements at the time of their treatment.
