Reiki is a Japanese word for Universal
Life Force Energy. Reiki
is an ancient system that can be experienced by either
'hands on' or by distant (remote) healing.
The practice of Reiki is believed
to come from ancient texts rediscovered and developed
by Mikao Usui in Japan early last century (see under
History of Reiki). The Japanese word Reiki means
'Universal Energy'. Eastern medicine has always recognised
and worked with this energy, which flows through all
living things and is vital to the well-being of life.
The energy is known as 'ki' in Japan, 'chi' in China,
and 'prana' in India. Acupuncture, tai chi and yoga
are also based on the free-flow of this energy in a
person. As a therapy, Reiki is an effective and simple
way of tapping into this energy, and transferring it
for the benefit of the receiver, to stimulate the body's
own natural healing potential.
The Reiki treatment encourages physical,
mental and emotional healing and spiritual growth.
This unique gift of healing is learned
by a process of attunements or initiations.
A person who has been attuned to Reiki
(please see Reiki Attunement Courses) has experienced
a very ancient technology for fine tuning the physical
and etheric bodies to a higher vibrational level. Also
the energy centres, the chakras, are opened to enable
the person to channel higher amounts of the Reiki energy.
Reiki is drawn through the practitioner,
and the recipient's body will draw the energy to those
parts of their body that require it, the practitioner
also being healed as he or she gives the treatment.
Energy enters through the practitioner's
crown chakra and passes through the upper charkas to
their heart and solar plexus chakras and passed through
arms and hands to the recipient. The process does not
drain the practitioner as the Reiki passes through a
purified channel that is opened by the attunements.
