What is Reiki?


Pure Healing from the Universe

Reiki is a form of energy medicine in which the healing energies of the universe are channeled through the practitioner to the client by laying on of hands. Reiki energy has its own spiritual intelligence and is guided to the source of the client’s malady by divine wisdom. The word Reiki comes from the Japanese words “Rei” (wisdom) and “Ki” (life force energy).

Some believe that a Japanese healer named Mikao Usui discovered Reiki during a spiritual pilgrimage on Japan’s Mount Kurama in March of 1922.  Others believe that the origins of this system of healing have been traced to the practice of Ling Chi by the Chinese Taoists nearly 3,000 years BC and were rediscovered by Dr. Usui.  There is even one school of thought, based on channeled messages from a spirit names Wei Chi, that dates the practice of Reiki to India over 5,000 years ago. Whatever the source, all authentic Reiki modalities in the world today can be traced back to Usui’s teachings.

Practitioners trained in Reiki receive their ability to channel through a series of sacred rituals called attunements, which are administered by Reiki Masters with a training lineage which can be traced back to Dr. Usui. The attunement process opens the critical chakras for Reiki (crown, heart and palm), and creates a direct spiritual link between the attuned practitioner and the Reiki source. In more advanced levels, the practitioner is taught how to amplify the power of the healing energy using sacred symbols, crystals and gemstones during the session.

Reiki is a powerful yet gentle healing modality which is a perfect complementary therapy for virtually any ailment. Anxiety, pain, disease, depression and many other ailments have been successfully relieved through the use of Reiki. Similar to other forms of energy healing, Reiki recognizes that problems in the body or in life often are the result of blockages in our energy pathways and chakras, and a Reiki session works to open those blockages and balance the chakras.


Important note: Reiki should never be used as a replacement for conventional medicine. It is a perfect complementary therapy but clients should always continue to seek and follow the advice of their medical professionals as well.
