Reiki means “Universal Life Force Energy”. Reiki is an ancient Japanese art of gentle hands on healing. Reiki is non-invasive, gentle but powerful. The Usui system of Reiki was first developed in the 1920s and brought to the west in 1938. Reiki has since been passed on from Master to Student via attunements.
After receiving the necessary training and attunements, universal healing energy flows through the hands of the practitioner. The hands are then placed on various positions on the body corresponding to the chakras, promoting physical, mental, emotional and spiritual wellbeing. Reiki puts you in a state of total relaxation and loosens up blocked energy, allowing healing energy to flow in, which in turns speeds up the natural healing processes of the body.
