Reiki is the Japanese word for universal life force energy. Reiki is an ancient gentle hands on energy healing therapy. The Japanese word – Reiki describes a system for tapping into universal life force energy sometimes referred to as chi or Qi, the energy that creates and sustains all life. It was discovered in the 1850’s in Kyoto, Japan by Mikao Usui. Dr. Usui with his colleague Dr. Hayashi developed the Reiki protocol, which Mrs. Takata brought to the United States.
At any one time there is a certain reservoir of personal energy from which each of us operates. All physical activities require energy expenditure. Non physical efforts such as putting on a brave face when distressed, being nice when feeling miserable, keeping it all together in difficult situations, all require an output of energy at an emotional level. Every aspect of us including our emotions represents energy vibrating at a particular frequency.
During a Reiki session which lasts an hour, a Reiki Practitioner channels life force energy from the universal energy field into the human energy field where energy changes into a form that is useable at a cellular level within the body. Reiki infuses the body with a concentrated amount of vital life force energy assisting in the restoration of balance on a physical, mental, emotional and spiritual level. This all happens beyond the conscious mind which means you don’t have to do anything. Just allow yourself to receive.
Reiki is non invasive, suitable for all ages and safe to use in any situation.
