Usui Reiki
What is it?

Reiki is actually “spiritually guided life force energy.”


Reiki is a Japanese technique for stress reduction and relaxation that also promotes healing. It is administered by “laying on hands” and is based on the idea that an unseen “life force energy” flows through us and is what causes us to be alive.


The word Reiki is made of two Japanese words – Rei which means “God’s Wisdom or the Higher Power” and Ki which is “life force energy”. So Reiki is actually “spiritually guided life force energy.”

What is Reiki?

Reiki is a natural, holistic energy healing method developed by Japanese Buddhist Dr. Mikao Usui in the early part of the 20th Century.

The Japanese word ‘Reiki’ translates as ‘sacred energy’ (Rei – sacred, spiritual, Ki – energy, life force). It describes the universal energy believed to surround, connect and exist in all living things (also referred to as Chi, Qi and Prana in other languages).

Reiki energy is said to remove blockages in the energy body, allowing for free-flow of Ki and thus promoting healing on an emotional and spiritual level. It is extremely relaxing – it has an almost meditative quality, bringing a sense of well-being and thus providing valuable support during times of increased stress, such as:

Low mood
Pregnancy support
Stress relief.
Deep relaxation.
Pain relief.
Strengthening of the immune system.
An increase in personal energy, vitality and confidence.
A healthy mind-body connection.
Comforting feelings of connectedness with all life.
Release of emotional and energetic blockages.
Reiki supports one’s personal and spiritual growth.
Balance in life and inner peace.
Low Self Esteem
Poor Self Confidence


It is also useful for physics conditions such as:

Migraines, Asthma, Skin Conditions, Flu/Colds, Ulcers, Arthritic, Anxiety, Neck & Back problems


Please note that Reiki is not intended as a replacement for conventional medicine but as a complementary therapy. If you have any concerns about your health, you should consult your G.P.
