(meaning: Universal life giving energy)

Reiki is the most simple healing method known. It activates the body's own natural ability to heal itself by releasing blocked energies, thereby creating a sense of balance and relaxation.
Reiki is channelled through the hands of the therapist to the client. A treatment involves lying on a couch or sitting in a comfortable chair, fully clothed and covered by a blanket. The Practitioner will then place her hands gently over or on your body. During the treatment you may feel certain subtle sensations, such as warmth or tingling. You may experience a sense of lightness or floating. The sensations are usually positive and relaxing.
Reiki can relieve stress, tension and pain. In this way it is very beneficial emotionally and physically. Following the treatment most people feel a sense of peace and calmness, which stays with them for some time afterwards.
Reiki was introduced by Dr Mikao Usui in Japan in the twenties. Usui was a wealthy business man who turned to become a Buddhist monk, and studied healing in China, Japan and Europe. He founded a healing society and helped thousands of the victims of the big earth quake in 1922.
Since then Reiki has been passed on by many Reiki Masters and Teachers. It is practised all over the world. For more information visit:
