Every living being on earth is sustained by a deep well of energy.
In Eastern medicine this life force is called Qi and its flow is seen
as crucial to one's health.
Reiki, a hands-on healing technique originating from Japan is one of the most gentle and effective methods of energy therapy practised today. Developed in the early 1900s by Buddhist Mikao Usui, Reiki comes from the composite words Rei (spirit) and Ki (life force). This subtle medicine works similarly to acupuncture; by placing the hands-on or above specific energy centres like the chakras, reiki can stimulate the movement of Qi throughout the body, shifting long-held blockages and helping to release emotional trauma, relieve physical illness, and promote a sustained inner peace. As human beings, we are not only made up of energy but we are also conduits of energy.
For deep and transformational healing to take place, we must nourish all aspects of the self. In conventional Western medicine, the body is isolated from the spirit, but in Eastern medicine, they are one. When we are wounded by life we are not just physically hurt, but also mentally, emotionally, and spiritually injured. Our natural state is one of harmony but this kind of trauma can disrupt our normal flow of being, causing imbalance and impeding our ability to heal. Reiki helps to restimulate our inherent state of health by directing energy to places in the body that need revitalization, movement, and support.
REIKI IS AN INCREDIBLE STEPPING-STONE FOR SELF-TRANSFORMATION;
IT PROVIDES A DOORWAY THROUGH WHICH ANY PERSON CAN EMBARK UPON
A DISTINCTLY INDIVIDUAL PATH OF WHOLE HEALING.
Reiki can be a powerful experience creating dramatic shifts in physical and emotional wellbeing. Tingling, warmth, pulsating relaxation and the gentle release of long-held chronic tension are common. Reiki has the incredible ability to uncover reservoirs of inner wisdom, illuminating what is needed for further healing. It can bring important life lessons to the surface, helping us to make healthy decisions and learn to be freer, happier, and more centred.
