Feeling overwhelmed from the daily stresses of life and in dire need of relief. Struggling to go forward in life with an exhausted mind, an aching body, and a spirit that has fallen into an abyss. After trying everything from a walk on the beach to medication and still feeling frazzled you are ready to try something new. Closing your eyes and inhaling a deep breath of air you lay fully clothed on a comfortable massage table. Suddenly you feel a gentle warm glow soothe your soul as tensions begin to slip away. A wave of serenity now washes over you as you drift off into a deep level of relaxation. Healing light cocoons you as peace is restored to your mind, body, and spirit. Slowly opening your eyes you discover that your energy is recharged and you are connected as one with the Universe. All is well in your world. Ahhh… Reiki.
Reiki is an ancient Japanese technique for stress reduction and relaxation that promotes healing and restores peace by balancing the energies in the mind, body, and spirit. Administered by “laying on of hands” and based on the premise that an unseen life force energy flows through us and is what allows us to be alive. The word “Reiki” is comprised of two Japanese words – “Rei” (“ray”) which means God’s Wisdom or the Higher Power, and “Ki” (“key”) which is life force energy. Therefore, Reiki is spiritually-guided life force energy.
Dr. Usui discovered Reiki during a spiritual journey on Mt. Kurama, a sacred mountain north of Kyoto, Japan in 1922. After the Great Kanto earthquake in 1923 the demand for Reiki was so great that Dr. Usui trained 22 enlightened people his method of healing called the Usui System of Natural Healing to the esteemed level of Reiki Master Teacher. The healing power of Reiki quickly spread and is practiced today in North and South America, Australia, Japan, Europe, India, and New Zealand. Today, there are thousands of Reiki Masters throughout the world that have been trained under the direct linage of Dr. Usui’s original 22 Masters.
Reiki is an elegantly simple yet powerful tool that provides energetic nourishment to both enhance and maintain a sense of overall wellbeing. There is neither dogma, nor any tenants of faith in Reiki. It is a natural energy balancing technique that anyone can be trained to do the education and various level attunements of a Reiki Master trained in the Usui method.
Many holistic practitioners believe that the mind, body, and spirit are connected as one. Thus being, if the mind and/or spirit are not at ease then the body will manifest disease (dis-ease) to maintain balance. It is suggested that Reiki restores peace to the mind and spirit creating the positive energy space for the body to heal itself naturally.
