Reiki is a Japanese word derived from “Rei”, meaning “Universal” and “Ki”, meaning “the vital life force”. These Japanese characters, when combined, present the concept of “Universal Life Force Energy”. Reiki can be defined as the art of activating, applying and balancing the universal life force energy that dwells within every living being, animal or plant. 

This life force flows within the physical body through pathways called Chakras and Meridians. It also flows around us in a field of energy called the Aura. Life force nourishes the organs and the cells of the body, supporting them in their vital functions. When this flow of life force is disrupted, it disturbs the functions in one or more of the organs and tissues of the physical body. 

The life force is responsive to thoughts and feelings. It becomes disrupted when we accept, either consciously or unconsciously, negative thoughts or feelings about ourselves or others. Negative thoughts and feelings attach themselves to the energy field and cause blockages. 

When the flow of “Life Force Energy” is disrupted, weakened or blocked, emotional or health problems tend to occur. Imbalances can be caused by various situations occurring in our lives i.e. emotional or physical trauma, injury, negative thoughts and feelings, including fear, worry, doubt, anger, anxiety, negative self-talk, toxicity, destructive lifestyles and relationships, neglect of self and lack of love for oneself and others.

Reiki is a holistic form of healing and works on Mind, Body and Spirit.  It works on the mental, physical, emotional and spiritual levels at the same time. The term “healing” refers to the balancing of energy in the body so that it may heal itself. It is a gentle non-intrusive, hands on healing technique bringing balance and harmony to all aspects of the body.

There is no belief system attached to Reiki so anyone can receive or learn to give a Reiki treatment.
