Reiki is a natural healing energy activated by intention. It works on every level, not just the physical, and promotes the body’s regenerative self-healing ability. The practice of Reiki is an original method of healing, developed by Mikao Usui in Japan early in the 20th century. Eastern medicine has always recognized and worked with this energy, which flows through all living things and is vital to well-being.
Reiki is a non-invasive therapy which aims to treat holistically and to restore homeostasis. A session is usually carried out with the recipient fully clothed, lying on a couch, or sitting in a chair. The practitioner places their hands gently on, or over the body and acts as a conductor to this universal energy.
