What is Reiki?
Reiki is a natural form of healing therapy. It is applied through non-invasive hands-on healing. This form of therapy aims to increase energy levels and promote relaxation and wellbeing.

Reiki teachings are based on a belief in an abundant, universal "life force" spiritual energy, that can support self-healing. The underlying philosophy of Reiki is that if a person’s ‘life force energy’ is low, they are more likely to be unwell or stressed. If it is high, however, they are more capable of being happy and feeling well.

Reiki can bring about healing on physical, mental, emotional and spiritual levels. Energy flows through the practitioner's hands whenever the hands are placed on, or held near a recipient. Reiki treatments may also be applied from a distance.

History of Reiki
The literal translation of Reiki from the Japanese is ‘spiritual energy’. This form of ‘hands-on healing’ has been around for many centuries and is common in many different cultures. Reiki was founded in Japan by Mikao Usui, a Tendai Buddhist monk, at the beginning of the 20th century. An American-born woman called Hawayo Takata brought the system of Reiki to the West in 1938.
