Reiki (pronounced Ray-Key) means “universal life force”. It is the vital energy which flows through and nurtures all living things. This vital energy is also known in different traditions as Chi in China and Prana in India.
Reiki healing is a natural healing system believed to have originated in Ancient Tibet and India. It was rediscovered in the 19th Century by Dr Mikao Usui, a Japanese Monk.
Receiving Reiki has a soothing, and balancing effect on the whole being – body mind and spirit. It will work with the causes of imbalances as well as the symptoms. If you imagine energy in the body as a free flowing river, occassionally a rock or pebble fall into that river that make the flow of the water a little more difficult. These pebbles are human emotions, worry and anger etc, and as the pebbles (emotions) build up, soon the once free flowing river is a mere trickle. At this point physical pain may occur in the body. Reiki works by re-aligning the body, clearing obstructions and strengthening the flow of energy.
