Reiki originates from the Japanese words “rei,” meaning universal and “ki,” meaning the life force energy, that flows through all living things. Reiki was discovered by Dr. Mikao Usui in Japan in the early 1900's. Known as the Usui System of Natural Healing, this energy healing technique treates the whole person (mental, physical, emotional and spiritual). With the placement of different hand positions on the body, Reiki healing energy travels to the areas of the body that needs healing and accelerates the body's natural ability to heal. Because Reiki nourishes our body and energy system, it is very beneficial for all ailments, such as injuries, disease, pain, stress, anxiety, fatigue and much more. During a Reiki treatment, people often experience deep states of relaxation and feel invigorated afterwords. Because the Reiki pracitioner receives an attunement during each level of training, they are able to channel greater amounts of life force energy. Reiki is beneficial for all ages, as it is always supporting the person for their highest good. A wonderful compliment to any profession, especially those working in health and wellness, for parents, care-givers and people wanting to live a happy and healthy life. Reiki is even beneficial for pets!
