What is Reiki?


Reiki is a non-invasive, gentle, yet powerful method of healing.  Reiki energy, (often described as "universal life energy" or "spiritual energy") is accessed by the practitioner during a treatment. It enhances the body's natural healing ability and promotes well-being.

Reiki treatment stands on its own as a healing practice and is also safely used to support orthodox and complementary medicine. Reiki doesn't interfere with or diminish the intended effects of other health or medical practices.

Awaken your heart, mind and body - experience the healing art of Reiki

  • Are you ill, in pain, or in distress and seeking help to cope with your situation?
  • Are you feeling low or anxious?
  • Does everything feel 'just too much' at times?
  • Need a way to recharge and gain peace of mind?

Reiki can help

An abundance of anecdotal evidence about the benefits of Reiki treatment has been a catalyst for credible research into the effects of Reiki. The National Institutes of Health USA have trials under way to investigate the effect of Reiki on stress, fibromyalgia, AIDS, prostate cancer, painful neuropathy and cardio-vascular risk factors. Learn more about these and other studies

Pamela Miles, author of Reiki: A Comprehensive Guide and leading US exponent on the integration of Reiki into mainstream healthcare facilities, writes:
"… studies that have been done so far have showed promising results for using Reiki to reduce stress, anxiety and pain. The data include objective measures (decreased stress hormones, improved immune indicators, decreased heart rate and improved blood pressure) as well as subjective improvements in anxiety and pain."

The System of Reiki

Reiki is a spiritual practice and healing art. Reiki, as we know it today, began in the early 1900s. It is recorded that through study, research and meditation a Japanese man, Mikao Usui, had an experience of empowerment that led to the development of Reiki as a healing system. Usui devoted the rest of his life to practicing and teaching this art of living and healing.

Over time the system of Reiki healing developed by Mikao Usui has evolved, or been changed, by subsequent teachers. Today a number of different forms, or branches, of Reiki are practiced worldwide. A common element of many forms of Reiki is a set of principles or precepts. While there are variations in the expression and interpretation of the precepts, they are all based on the original teachings of Mikao Usui.
"The true purpose of the Reiki method is to correct the heart-mind, keep the body fit, and lead a happy life using the spiritual capabilities humans are endowed with since birth."
