WHAT IS REIKI?

reiki hands

Reiki (ray-kee) is an ancient, holistic complementary approach to healing which can restore the body, mind, and spirit to a sense of wholeness and balance.  A Japanese word, Reiki, translates as “universal” (rei) “life energy” (ki).

The trained practitioner places her hands on or over various places on the recipient’s body during a treatment.  We can compare this to the notion of “laying on of hands” in our Christian tradition.

Reiki is not associated with any religion or the New Age Movement. It is deeply spiritual and nurturing.

Reiki Principles

Just for today… do not anger.
Just for today… do not worry.
Honour your parents, teachers and elders.
Earn your living honestly.
Give thanks for every living thing.

WHAT HAPPENS DURING A TREATMENT?

The receiver lies on a padded table, fully clothed, as the practitioner gently places her hands in a series of strategic positions on the recipient’s body.  The participant draws in Reiki energy and it flows to where it is needed.  This flow is often experienced as warmth, cooling, tingling or pulsating.
