Reiki is an invisible subtle energy. The name "Reiki" is a Japanese word which can be translated to mean "universal life energy". What we know as Reiki comes from ancient Sanskrit texts, which were discovered and developed by Dr Mikao Usui during the late 1800's in Japan.

Eastern medicine recognises and works with energy or 'life-force' and similarly, Reiki uses this energy to stimulate the body in it's own natural healing process, increases the energy flow throughout the whole body.

What is a Reiki Treatment?

The use of Reiki energy to facilitate and promote the body's natural regenerative processes. It is usually transferred with the practitioner's hands resting gently on the body or non-contact where appropriate, such as tender wounds or sexually sensitive areas. Other techniques enable a treatment to be given without the client being present. A Reiki treatment is non-diagnostic, non-interventionist, non-manipulative and no pressure is applied. Clothes are not removed as the energy will pass easily through them. A treatment is usually carried out with the recipient lying down or sitting, in a relaxing environment and on average lasts about an hour.

A recipient may experience a wide range of sensations such as gentle tingling, heat, cold, or not feel anything at all. At times there may be a release of emotion as part of the re-balancing process, and this is considered very healthy. A treatment is perfectly safe and may by used alongside conventional medical treatments. It can never do harm as the recipient draws the energy through the practitioner , taking only what is required, the Reiki practitioner acts only as a channel for the energy which will act where it is needed. The Reiki energy relaxes and de-stresses, and can be used on people, animals and plants.


Can anyone learn Reiki?

The ability to channel Reiki cannot be learnt from a book or by instruction. To be able to receive Reiki, students go through a special initiation which 'attunes' them to the Reiki energy. Over time this connection is improved through practice, and by actually using the Reiki energy themselves - typical known as 'self treatment'. It is considered essential to treat oneself with Reiki, and indeed many people use it exclusively for reasons of personal development, healthcare and stress-management.

The attunement initiation

An initiation/attunement can only be performed by a Reiki Master (teacher). It is felt that this process harmonises a person with the Reiki energy so they can receive and pass it on to others. This process is not exclusive, anyone can be attuned/initiated to Reiki regardless of their spiritual or religious beliefs. Additional stages of attunements/ initiations and the use of the Reiki symbols, further enhance the practitioner's ability to utilise the Reiki energy, focusing it for specific purposes.

Reiki 1 is learnt primarily for self treatments, family and animals.

Reiki 2 gives you more knowledge and takes you to Practitioner status.

Reiki 3 achieves Master Status and allows the teaching of Reiki.
