The Meaning And Application

Pronounced ray-kee, Reiki is an ancient hands-on-healing art that was re-introduced in the mid 19th century by Dr. Mikao Usui in Japan. It stands for 'universal life force energy and is known for its positive health benefits! Reiki is a holistic healing system working to create spiritual, mental and physical harmony by stimulating the body's innate and natural healing ability.  Reiki supports the release of physical and emotional blockages while replenishing energy into each energy center or (chakra), to restore vitality and balance. 

One of the greatest Reiki healing health benefits is stress reduction and relaxation, which triggers the bodies natural healing abilities, and improves and maintains health. Reiki healing is a natural therapy that gently balances life energies and brings health and well being to the recipient. This simple, non-invasive healing system works with the Higher Self of the Receiver to promote health and well being of the entire physical, emotional and psychic body. Therefore it is truly a system of attaining and promoting wholeness of Mind, Body and Spirit. Reiki is a specific type of subtle energy work in which healing is performed by the touch of the hands, allowing more flow of universal life force energy to the patient via the Reiki practitioner. It is extremely powerful, yet gentle energy that can be easily channelled to yourself and others, just by intention.


Reiki healing is a pure energy form. When it is combined with the sincere Desire of the Healee, who is willing to effect a cleansing within their emotional and spiritual consciousness, a total healing can occur.

When the flow of the "Life Force Energy" is disrupted, weakened or blocked, emotional or health problems tend to occur. Imbalances can be caused from many situations occurring in our lives, such as: emotional or physical trauma, injury, negative thoughts and feelings, including fear, worry, doubt, anger, anxiety, negative self-talk, toxicity, nutritional depletion, destructive lifestyle and relationships, neglect of self and lack of love for oneself or others, from emotions that are not expressed in a healthy way. Reiki is excellent for aiding health in any physical, mental, emotional and spiritual issues of any kind and it gives wonderful results.

When we are relaxed, stress-free, we are able to restore our natural ability to heal. Long term practice of whole-body reiki will restore the general condition of the body. It will open the energy channels and this will allow the body to deal properly and naturally with stress and build-up toxins and cope with anxiety and depression. When a person is in good health, regular therapy will increase the body's built-in defenses. This will manifest itself as confidence and outward harmony in dealing with everyday events. The person will gain a positive outlook on life.
