Reiki (ray-key) literally means “universal energy,” it is a system that channels the energy present in all sentient and non-sentient forms for the purpose of healing.
Reiki is an amazing and ancient healing technique that is now being used on a widespread level in hospitals, clinics, centres as part of a holistic approach to healing. Reiki has its own intelligence, it knows where the energy needs to be sent to in order to weave its magic and kickstart peace.
Reiki was founded in Japan by Mikao Usui in the 1900’s, some believe that Reiki has been used as a form of energy healing for millennia and that it was forgotten and then rediscovered in ancient Buddhist and Zen texts. I believe that Reiki is accessible to all, we are all worthy of healing and health and can be healed.
Reiki energy works with the electromagnetic field of the body, aura, meridian lines, tanden points and chakra points. Not only does it aid peace and relaxation but it can help to clear energy blockages, pain, trauma, anxiety and health related issues. Trauma, fear or '‘dis-ease’ can be linked to trapped energy that needs to be released from the nervous system, with Reiki these blockages will melt away and negative energy becomes transformed.
Reiki is not a substitute for conventional western medicine but can be used in conjunction for holistic healing.
