"Unfold your wings; release your spirit; follow your bliss"
Reiki is a spiritual practice that originated in Japan and was developed by the Buddhist monk Mikao Usui, in the early 1900’s. The term ‘Reiki’ translates as ‘Universal Energy’. It works on the principle that we all have a conscious, intelligent energy or ‘Life Force’ that flows through each of us, which is vital to our health and wellbeing.
Usui Reiki healing is a process whereby the giver channels this life energy and passes it on to the receiver through the laying on of hands. The hands are positioned over the seven main Chakras or energy centers in the body, allowing Reiki to flow and clear energetic imbalances. Reiki promotes a state of wellbeing that supports the body’s physical and emotional response systems and is often used alongside conventional medicines and treatments.
