Reiki is: “A healing technique based on the principle that the therapist can channel energy into the patient by means of touch, to activate the natural healing processes of the patient’s body and restore physical and emotional well-being”.
The Japanese word ‘Reiki’ literally translates as universal life force energy. This natural system of healing was developed by Mikao Usui in the early 20th century. Reiki supports conventional medicine or can be used alone but it is not a replacement for traditional medication or treatments.
Regular Reiki treatments promote a calmer response to life’s challenges. Reiki’s gentle energy is easily adapted to most medical conditions and may be used safely by people of all ages, including the newborn, pregnant mothers, surgical patients, the frail and the elderly, in any situation.
