Reiki History

Reiki (pronounced ray-key) is a natural balancing art that involves interacting with universal life force energy. It is NOT a religion and envelopes all cultures and religions. In fact, the Japanese word means, âœUniversal Spirit Energyâ. "Rei" means Universal, transcendental spirit, soul. "Ki" means the life force Energy; the meaning is the same as Chi in Traditional Chinese Medicine or Prana in India. This balancing process was rediscovered in the 1800â™s by Dr. Mikao Usui, a Japanese Christian educator and monk, during his quest to learn "how Jesus did his healing the sick" by laying on of hands.

Through his research and meditation, Dr. Usui located ancient Buddhist sutras that contained references to symbols used for healing purposes. From these symbols he developed the Usui System of Reiki, the essence of which is to increase the human bodyâ™s ability to heal its own ailments and to address the cause of disease on a deep level.

Reiki is life force energy. It flows through a person the way electricity flows through wires. This energy, is often described by both the Reiki practitioner and the Reiki client as a tingly or warm sensation that produces a soothing balance. Reiki helps an individual relieve stress, physical pain, discomforts, and can enable them to regain their strength.

A Reiki session is approximately 45-60 minutes in length. Clients are treated fully clothed, sitting up in a chair or lying down on a massage table, whichever is more comfortable. During the session, the Reiki practitioner will gently rest their hands on (or slightly above) various parts of the body in patterns (chakra system) which include the head, neck, abdomen, arms, legs, back and feet. If the body is touched, it is lightly.

Throughout its lengthy history, Traditional Reiki has been used to help treat illness and/or injury. As well, many individuals have used Reiki to help overcome unwanted habits, achieve personal goals, and alleviate stress. Children and animals are especially responsive to this non-invasive and loving energy. This balancing technique does not require any particular religion or belief to be activated and can be easily accessed to balance our physical, mental, emotional and spiritual bodies.
