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.

What is a Reiki Treatment?
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.
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

Can anyone learn Reiki?
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

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.
