Traditional Usui Reiki

Reiki (pronounced ray-key) is a hands-on technique for bringing healing energy into the body. Reiki is a Japanese term for "Spiritual Life Energy." Energy is flowing within and around the physical body and that energy is necessary to nourish and sustain the body. If the energy flow is disrupted or diminished, then the functioning of the organs and tissues of the body is also distrupted. Reiki dissolves energy blockages, allowing the energy to flow naturally and thereby heal the physical body. Reiki stimulates the body's natural healing ability at the deepest level.

When our energy flow is out of balance, the simplest problem or pain overwhelms us. Reiki restores and balances the natural life force energy within the body, creating an increased energy flow. Reiki restores physical, emotional, mental, and spiritual balance. It is a safe, gentle, and simple technique that can be very effective. Reiki is practiced worldwide today.

Reiki is compatible with other healing modalities such as traditional medicine, chiropractic, massage therapy, holistic medicine, psychotherapy, and many other modalities.

A Reiki Treatment

Reiki is a relaxing experience using different hand positions on or over the body. Sessions are usually done on a massage table with the client fully clothed. The average treatment lasts about an hour. The Reiki practitioner gently places his or her hands over the eyes of the client, and starts to give Reiki. The means that the practitioner "opens up" to Reiki life energy as a channel, much as a water hose "opens up" to water.

Gently the practitioner will change the position of the hands after a few minutes and place the hands on other positions on the front and back of the body.

During the treatment the practitioner is usually silent, which helps the client relax and be receptive to the energy. Very often the client falls into a light sleep. Reiki is pure energy. When it is applied, it brings about deep relaxation, a sense of well-being and acceptance.
