What is Reiki?
Firstly, people often ask ‘What is Reiki?’. The word Reiki, pronounced Ray-key, means Universal Life Energy. It is a technique for stress reduction and relaxation. In addition, it supports the body’s natural ability to heal itself.
A Japanese man, Dr Usui developed the technique last century. Since then, it has been passed down through the generations from teachers (masters). As a result Reiki has grown in popularity and can be used alongside traditional medical treatments. Above all, it is the perfect antidote to the stresses of daily life.
The Principles of Reiki – Inviting Happiness
Just for today I will live the attitude of gratitude.
Just for today I will not worry.
Just for today I will not anger.
Just for today I will do my work honestly.
Just for today I will show love and respect for every living thing.
So let’s start, just for today…
An imbalance of energy within the body makes us feel out of sorts, unwell or unsettled. In other words, the body’s flow of energy gets blocked. Reiki treatments are therefore used to restore a state of balance and bring harmony to all aspects of our lives.
So to function optimally, the 7 main energy centres (or chakras) within the body all need to be balanced, clear and energized. The Energy fields of the body are known as the aura. The aura contains emotional, mental, and spiritual energy. In short, Reiki improves the energy flow in the body. This is better for our health on all levels.
Reiki works on a physical, emotional, mental and spiritual level. So it is a useful addition to anyone’s self-care. Book a treatment and see for yourself!
