What is Reiki?

Reiki (ray-key) is Japanese for ‘universal life energy, and is also a word used to describe a system of natural healing.

We live in a world of energy that nourishes and maintains all living things. There is balance and harmony within and around us when this energy flows uninterrupted and as a result we experience a sense of well being.

Reiki treatment is a something that anyone can enjoy in the normal course of their life. It is believed when the universal flow of energy is interrupted, stress and disease appear.

Reiki can be used alongside other conventional or complementary treatment and often helps to provide emotional support during recovery.

In essence Reiki treatments can help the body emotionally or spiritually and it is a tradition that is open to any belief system.

The practice is taught by Reiki teachers (masters/healers/therapists/practitioners) who have trained in the tradition which is passed on in person from master to student.

Reiki masters use a technique called palm healing (hands-on healing) through which a universal energy is transferred through the palms of the practitioner to the patient in order to encourage emotional or physical healing.

I initially learnt about Reiki whilst I was living in India. I was on a personal journey of discovery and was learning about raising energy in our bodies and energy systems called Chakras.

During discussions around meditation, Reiki came up and the curious in me went along to find out more. I was hooked and ended up qualifying in Level 1 and Level 2 in Reiki through the person who had introduced me to this holistic therapy in the first instance.

Reiki allows me to be attuned to and in-tune with the universe. Reiki masters help peope into a deep state of relaxation and healing. Every client on which I perform holisitc Reiki therapy is different and I am guided by my intuition.

As a healer/therapist I believe it is also important to remember self care and as a result I also go for Reiki treatments myself.

My advice for anyone who has not tried it… go with an open mind..be open to it and try it.
