Reiki is an ancient healing art using universal lifeforce energy, that can be traced back to ancient Tibet 10,000 years ago. In fact knowledge of Reiki is believed to have been common among indigenous people around the world before western colonisation, when it was lost as tribes were wiped out. It was rediscovered again in the early 1900s by a Japanese philosopher Dr Mikao Usui.
It is simply the life force energy in all living things, the spark of life that keeps us alive. The word Reiki, pronounced ‘Ray – key’, was named by Dr Usui. Rei means universal and Ki also known as chi is the life energy that permeates and maintains all living things, creating everything from the densest level of matter to the highest levels of consciousness.
Reiki is a touch activated technique for boosting the life force energy supply to the body. The energy it boosts is essential for all the functions and activities of a living being, therefore Reiki can assist with all forms of illness, disease or imbalance whether physical, emotional, mental or spiritual.
