The name Reiki comes from two Japanese words: Rei meaning “Higher Power or spiritual wisdom” and Ki which is “life force energy”. So Reiki means “spiritually guided life force energy.”
Reiki was developed by Mikao Usui (1865 – 1926), known as Usui Sensei. A Tendai Buddhist Monk in Japan, he possessed a vast knowledge of medicine, psychology, world religions, and the Kyoten (Buddhist Bible). Usui Sensei used specific hand positions in a “laying of hands” combined with a deep meditative state to benefit his patients.
How does Reiki work?
Energy comes through the practitioner’s hands and helps to clear and balance the energy in the body-mind. A Reiki master feels areas in ones energy field that are stagnant, and will use the energy and healing symbols to clear and balance. The key to the healing power of Reiki is the clear healing intention and openness in both the practitioner and the client.
Who can benefit from Reiki?
We are all connected, therefore we our bodies are constantly responding to the environment and to other people. We are bombarded by the electromagnetic fields from computers, TV’s, microwaves, cell phones, microwaves and fluorescent lights. These vibrations often compromise our energy fields, and our health. Energy is everywhere, and even the thoughts, feelings and emotions of other people can cause disharmony. Everyone benefits from Reiki, and the effects are cumulative in multiple sessions.

Most people feel a deep state of relaxation, balance and harmony. Since Reiki works with energies, there is no manipulation or specific physical contact. People who are aware of subtle energies will experience shifts in their energetic flow. These changes can continue long after a Reiki session.
