The meaning of the Japanese word Reiki is ‘universal life energy’. It was rediscovered by Dr Mikao Usui, a Japanese Buddhist monk in the early 1800’s.
In a reiki treatment the ‘universal life energy’ is channelled through a person – who has received a Reiki attunement by a reiki master – to activate the healing process in your body. The Reiki energy knows which area of your body needs healing – be it physical, emotional or your energy body. That is the beauty of reiki – is its innate ability to support your healing process.
- reduce your stress levels and help relax you
- make you feel more energized and ready to face the challenges of life
- removes energetic blockages
- help your body heal dis-eases
- assists in healing at an emotional, mental and spiritual level
Usui Reiki has a ‘standard’ set of reiki hand positions that the Reiki practitioners may follow. The practitioner may follow these steps or may be guided to channel the reiki energy into areas of your body where it is needed the most. The hands may be lightly placed on your body or held about the body – depending on the area of the body and the nature of the energy felt and being channelled.
Often discomfort in a part of your body or dis-ease is as a result of an emotion which has created an energy blockage in your physical body. William Lee Rand developed “Physic Surgery” to remove these blockages.
