"The knowledge that an unseen energy flows through all living things and directly affects the quality of health has been part of the wisdom of many cultures since ancient times. The existence of this "life energy" has been verified by recent scientific experiments, and medical doctors are considering the role it plays in functioning of the immune system and the healing process."
--Reiki: The Healing Touch by William Lee Rand
Reiki is Japanese technique for stress reduction, relaxation, promoting feelings of peace, and well-being. Founded by Dr. Mikao Usui, Reiki was developed as a system for natural healing using "life force energy.” This unseen force flows through all living things and is what causes us to be alive. The word Reiki is made up of 2 words: Rei, meaning “Higher Power” and Ki, “life force energy.”
Higher life force energy equates to feeling happier, healthier, and utter peacefulness. The opposite is true for low “life force energy” leading to sickness, dissatisfaction in life, anxiety, and lack of clarity.
The treatment experience is different for each person but typically feels like a wonderful glowing lightness that flows through and around you. Reiki works with your aura and charkas to intuitively bring lightness and healing life force energy to areas that it is needed most. Though a spiritual practice, Reiki is not a religion and has no dogma. It is a safe, enlightening, self-healing method of transferring and sharing energy in the most positive sense.
Reiki practitioners as well as receivers of Reiki are encouraged to practice certain ethical ideals that promote universal peace and harmony in life. These principals are based on Dr. Usui's deep admiration of Meiji the Emperor of Japan. The five Reiki principals (below) came to Dr. Usui in a meditation. The motivation behind the ethical ideals is that in order for the Reiki healing energy to have a lasting effect, the client understands and accepts that he/she must take responsibility for having an active part in their self-healing.
