Reiki is not based on any belief, faith or suggestion but is a peaceful Japanese technique for stress reduction and relaxation, and the release and relaxation it brings contributes to the healing of the body and mind.
Reiki has been around for thousands of years but was re-discovered in Japan at the start of the 1900’s by a Japanese Buddhist called Mikao Usui.
The name is derived from Japanese words “re” (universal) and “ki” (life energy) – it works by stimulating your body’s natural healing process. It is commonly referred to as palm healing or hands-on healing.
The Oxford English dictionary defines Reiki as “A healing technique based on the principle that the therapist can channel energy into the patient by means of touch, to activate the natural healing processes of the patient’s body and restore physical and emotional well-being”.
Reiki can do no harm, and helps to clear blockages, physically, mentally, emotionally. As a qualified Reiki Practitioner I connect into this spiritual energy, which then flows out from my hands and into the body of the client, to remove blockages that are detrimental to health. I might be biased, but the energy is so beautiful and I believe it is the most marvellous thing!
Reiki is best held in a peaceful setting, and I believe my Little House of Healing to be ideally situated for this, as it is based in a cabin in my garden.
