What Is Reiki?

Reiki is a system of subtle energy healing using laying on of hands and distant healing techniques which originated in 19th Century Japan. This special Energy/healing technique was a rediscovered by a Japanese Spiritualist, Dr. Mikao Usui. Reiki issues from the limitless source of Spiritually guided (intelligent) Energy in the Universe which is responsible for life itself and for all healing. It comes from Divine Source, or Higher Power, that is, the organizing principle of the Universe available to all people, regardless of belief system and is transmitted by a unique system of attunements which open the capacities of the student for passing subtle energies through the hands.

What Does Reiki Do?

Reiki relaxes and de-stresses, as a flow of subtle Energy promotes healing on all levels. Reiki can be used to treat people, animals, plants and, generally, for situational Energy balancing and Earth healing (Reiki Level II and up).

How Does Reiki Work?

The Reiki Energy is drawn by intent (both conscious and unconscious intent) through the Reiki practitioner according to the needs of the recipient of the Energy. Reiki always heals for the best and highest good of the recipient, the practitioner, and for the Universe. Reiki heals on all levels-Spiritual, mental, physical and emotional (as well as other levels of which we are unaware consciously). Utilizing this unique system, the practitioner and recipient are healed simultaneously. Both benefit from multi-level healing and neither is compromised by the condition of the other. Reiki healing is unique in that the practitioner is never drained by the healing experience.

Who Can Practice Reiki?

Anyone who has been attuned and taught by a Reiki Master can use Reiki for healing for him/herself and others. Reiki will flow automatically when a practitioner’s hands are placed on a person needing healing. A desire to learn and use Reiki is all that is necessary to receive Reiki training. Reiki training is open to people of all religious and cultural backgrounds.

What Can Reiki Heal?

Reiki has been used for healing for all types of conditions and ailments. Many clients have experienced accelerated healing when combining Reiki with traditional allopathic and/or alternative medicine. Since Reiki works individually to the underlying need of the client and comes from a Higher Intelligence, results are always healing, but may be unpredictable. Reiki has reduced stress (and pain). Chemotherapy and radiation patients who have received Reiki have noticed a marked decrease in side effects from treatment. Reiki does not work to an agenda of the practitioner or client. It works according to a level of higher awareness and higher consciousness. Reiki healing has been responsible for dramatic healings and also, it has allowed individuals to depart with resolution and in a state of Peace.
