Reiki is a name given to the natural holistic therapy, which is over 2500 years old, it is believed that the technique is originally from the Mu people, passed to the Tibetan Monks and was rediscovered in the 1800’s by Mikao Usui. The words Rei and Ki is thought to have originated from Raku- Kei and are from the Japanese language.
Raku is the vertical energy flow
Rei the horizontal energy flow through the body.
As a holistic therapy, anyone can receive Reiki, it doesn't belong to any belief system, and is administered by “laying on hands” and is based on the idea that life energy flows through us. When we are low or unwell areas of our energy are blocked Reiki can help to heal those blocked areas of imbalance helping our energy to flow more freely again, restoring a sense of well being.
The practitioner is a channel through which energy is drawn , by the need or the imbalance of the recipient. Reiki flows to the areas of need, dispelling blocked and negative areas, supporting the body’s natural ability to heal its self.
