What is Reiki?

The System of Reiki I practice is the Shin-Shin Kai-Zen Usui Reiki Ryo-Ho :: The Usui Reiki Treatment Method for Improvement of Body and Mind or more simply the Usui Reiki Ryoho :: Usui Reiki Healing Method.

It was developed by Japanese Buddhist Mikao Usui in 1922 after a deep soul searching for the meaning of life.

There are many types of Reiki, in fact over 30 different schools nowadays. The Usui Reiki Healing Method is the most popular and the most practiced around the world. It is said that Sensei Usui is in fact the father of modern Reiki.

So what is Reiki?

Reiki is a form of healing treatment dealing with the energies within the body, it can be practiced hands-on or off and even at a distance! Reiki healers go through a process of attunement directed by a Reiki Master, this process consists of clearing the inner energy pathways like the Hara Line which in Chinese Metaphysics is the central channel within the Meridian System who harbours the energy centers in the body but also below and above the body connecting us to the Earth and Galactic energies.

By undergoing the attunements the healer’s Hara Line opens up and aligns the emotional, physical, mental and astral bodies so that they can tap into the healing resonance of the universal energy and channel with ease the Reiki through their body and to the client.

There is no magic or special gifts needed, this universal energy is available to all that wish to connect with it, like every spiritual practice as a healer connecting with Reiki daily helps to create a clearer and stronger flow.

So what exactly can Reiki do?

  • provides a calm space without and within

  • helps shifts and activate the energies in the body

  • can help us go from an overactive sympathetic nervous system to the parasympathetic nervous system

  • help resolve psychic or emotional blockages

  • can reduce physical pain, anxiety and fatigue

  • re-aligns the energy centers

  • enhances the quality of your life and daily mood

  • clearer connection to Spirit, Universe or God/Goddess

The list is long and this is the tip of the healing iceberg but I believe these are the most helpful elements of Reiki.

They are some common experiences that clients have during a session but so you can let those inner feelings arise naturally without the mind deliberately seeking them, I invite you to try it out for yourself! I also understand if your mind would like to prepare mentally, please let me know if that is the case and I will share with you what you can expect.

As we are creatures of habit that exist within patterns, we can create longterm imbalances in the energy body that can manifest physically, emotionally or mentally. It is recommended to have at least a few sessions in order to facilitate the level of relaxation needed for the body to restore and heal itself.

If you are interested please get in touch with me. I offer treatments at Shakti Den on Tuesdays and Thursdays mostly, either 30 minutes or hour long ones.
