JAPAN - Reiki
Reiki originates from Rei meaning universal, higher knowledge or spiritual consciousness and from Ki meaning life force. Reiki healing is believed to have originated in ancient Tibet and India. It was rediscovered and developed in the 19th century by Dr Mikao Usui, a Japanese monk. Reiki practitioners channel healing energy direct from Source to other people.
Receiving Reiki has a soothing, refreshing and balancing effect on the whole being. It will work with the causes of any illness or imbalance, as well as the symptoms. It helps to dispel negative energies and blockages and will flow to the areas that most need healing. While you lie fully clothed, listening to soft music the practitioner will place her hands gently on your body and allow the Reiki energy to flow. Clients often feel warmth or a pleasant tingling, although each client’s experience will be unique.
Reiki is not allied to any particular religion or belief system. It is open to all and will work with most belief systems. Many clients say they receive useful insights during healing sessions. Some find it helps in releasing blocked emotions. Others may simply find it physically relaxing and a rare chance to unwind fully, away from everyday pressures.
