Usui Shiki Ryoho

What is Reiki?

The word Reiki is made up of two Japanese words, Rei meaning ‘Universal Life’ and Ki, meaning ‘Energy’. Reiki [pronounced as ‘ray-key’] is a Japanese holistic approach used to harness ones universal life force energy in means of healing. Universal life force energy is also commonly referred to as chi (Qi), prana, mana, etc.

Reiki can be traced back to thousands of years ago in ancient Tibet, however the technique was rediscovered by Dr. Miako Usui (pictured to the right) on a 21 day hike up Mount Kurama in Japan during the mid 1800’s.

Reiki is used as an aid to improve ones overall health and well-being.

The healing art of Reiki works on four levels, Physical, Spiritual, Mental and emotional. This natural energy healing technique helps to restore our inner balance by clearing and releasing blocked or stagnant energy within each of the chakras and the meridian system.

The use of Reiki creates an opportunity for the body to truly relax and in turn ends up allowing our bodies to properly heal in the most natural way.

In holistic healing it is greatly believed that the mind body connection is the most influential connection one has. We have the power to influence and create anything we want and more than that, we have the ability to improve our lives and our health. Our thoughts, words and emotions create our reality and determine the kind of situations we attract.

The mind has a direct impact on how we feel, both mentally and physically. If there is an energetic imbalance within us, we open ourselves for the potential of illness or disease to manifest within our bodies.
