The word Reiki is combination of two japanese words “Rei” and “Ki”
“Ki” – the life force energy that animates all living things, flows through every living thing, planet, animal, human and which is present in some form in everything around us.
Rei ” – ” wisdom of the Divine” Wisdom that comes from God, the Universe , All that Is, the Source, the Creator. The Higher Intelligence that guides the creation and functioning of the Universe. This being all knowing and understanding the need and cause of all problems and difficulties and how to heal them.
Reiki is a non-invasive therapy using a hands on healing technique that is safe and gentle. It can be used on either yourself or others, using spiritual energy to treat physical ailments, without the use of pressure, manipulation or massage. It is a holistic therapy which is used to harmonize and heal the mind, body and spirit. It can also help with spiritual awareness and growth.
Reiki was developed by Dr Mikao Usui, a Buddhist priest who lived from 1865 to 1926. After many years of study he found that he could access and use the healing energy and pass this ability onto other people. During the last few years of his life Usui developed Usui Reiki Ryoho which translated means Usui Spiritual Energy Healing Method, becoming widely known throughout the Western World, as Reiki.
Reiki, as a complementary healing therapy that has been taught and used in the UK since the late 1900’s, but Eastern medicine has for thousands of years worked with this energy, recognising its flow through all living things.
It is not based on any belief, faith or suggestion and scientific research using quantum physics is starting to help us to understand how Reiki may work to benefit the individual.
It has been suggested that in years to come it may be known as energy medicine based on scientifically measurable energy emitted from the healer’s hands.
