Reiki Therapy

Reiki is a simple, natural and safe method of spiritual healing and self-improvement that anyone can use. A Japanese technique for stress reduction and relaxation that promotes healing, it provides the body space to bring forth what it needs to be aware of on a mental, emotional, physical and spiritual level.

Reiki is administered by “laying on hands”, and is based on the idea that an unseen “life force energy” flows through us and causes us to be alive. If ones “life force energy” is low, then we are more likely to get sick or feel stress, and if it is high, we are more capable of being happy and healthy.

The word Reiki is made of two Japanese words: Rei which means “Gods Wisdom or the Higher Power” and Ki which is “life force energy”. So Reiki is actually “spiritually guided life force energy.” By connecting with Reikis healing energy of love and light, a treatment feels like a wonderful glowing radiance that flows through and around you. Reiki treats the whole person including body, emotions, mind and spirit, creating many beneficial effects that include relaxation and feelings of peace, security and wellbeing. Many who have experienced the healing powers of Reiki have reported miraculous results. It has been effective in helping virtually every known illness and malady, and always creates a beneficial effect. It also works in conjunction with all other medical or therapeutical techniques to relieve side effects and promote recovery.

An amazingly simple technique to learn, the ability to use Reiki is not taught in the usual sense, but is transferred to the student during a Reiki class. This ability is passed on during an “attunement” given by a Reiki master, and allows the student to tap into an unlimited supply of “life force energy” to improve ones health and enhance their quality of life. Its use is not dependent on ones intellectual capacity or spiritual development and therefore is available to everyone. It has been successfully taught to thousands of people of all ages and backgrounds.

While Reiki is spiritual in nature, it is not a religion, has no dogma, and there is nothing you must believe in order to learn and use Reiki. In fact, Reiki is not dependent on belief at all and will work whether you believe in it or not. Because Reiki comes from God, many people find that using Reiki puts them more in touch with the experience of their religion rather than having only an intellectual concept of it. While Reiki is not a religion, it is still important to live and act in a way that promotes harmony with others. Mikao Usui, the founder of the Reiki system of natural healing, recommended that one practice “certain simple ethical ideals to promote peace and harmony”, which are nearly universal across all cultures.

During a meditation several years after developing Reiki, Mikao Usui decided to add the Reiki Ideals to the practice of Reiki. The Ideals came in part from the five prinicples of the Meiji emperor of Japan whom Mikao Usui admired. The Ideals were developed to add spiritual balance to Usui Reiki. Their purpose is to help people realize that healing the spirit by consciously deciding to improve oneself is a necessary part of the Reiki healing experience:

Just for today...
I will not be angry
I will not worry
I will be grateful
I will do my work honestly
I will be kind to every living thing

In order for the Reiki healing energies to have lasting results, the client must accept responsibility for her or his healing and take an active part in it. Therefore, the Usui system of Reiki is more than the use of the Reiki energy, but also includes an active commitment to improve oneself in order for it to be a complete system. The ideals are both guidelines for living a gracious life, and virtues worthy of practice for their inherent value.
