What is Reiki?
Reiki is a universal healing energy that is transferred through the practitioner’s hands to the person receiving it, improving the flow of energy around the body and enabling relaxation, reducing pain, speeding the healing process and reduce other symptoms of illness.
How does it work?
Imagine that I am the vessel that tunes into this beautiful healing energy and I channel it through my hands to send it to wherever it needs to go.
It is believed that Mikao Usui, a Japanese Buddhist monk discovered Reiki during the early 1920s when he climbed Mount Kurama, spending 21 days there to fast and pray in order to gain a highly altered state of consciousness in search for this healing energy. Becoming frustrated, as he was about to give up, on the 21st day, he experienced enlightenment which led to the development of Reiki and evolved as as a result of his research, experience and dedication.
