What is Reiki

Reiki is the Japanese word for Universal Life Force Energy.It is a gentle, non-intrusive, hands on, natural healing technique originating from Tibet. In the early 20th century Dr Mikao Usui a Tibetan monk re discovered the techniques of using Reiki healing energy. He devoted his life to healing others and passed on the teachings of Reiki in later life.Dr Usui studied many different faiths and traditions, therefore, Reiki is not connected to any religion or faith. It is based on the premise that a  universal energy system permeates all living things. When a Reiki practitioner connects to this energy and places their hands upon a person this energy flows to areas of need assisting the bodys natural self healing mechanisms.
