'Reiki is one of many doors to your inner self/inner room. If you feel that this is right for you and you are enjoying entering your inner self through that door - keep opening it wider and wider with even more joy, love, peace & light. Keep opening and never close. Finding other door doesn't make that one less precious and valuable.'

Reiki (pronounced -ray-kee) means 'Universal Life Force'. It is a system of healing which is believed to have originated in Tibet thousands of years ago. It accesses universal life force energy. Rediscovered in Japan in the nineteenth century by Mikao Usui, a theologian, who was researching the healing powers of both Jesus and the Buddha. The technique was revealed to him after 21 day of meditation in a vision and then he passed it on to his pupils. One of them was
Chujiro Hayashi, who established a Reiki clinic in Tokyo and formalized the teaching of Reiki.
There are now thousands of practitioners worldwide…and it's still growing!

 Reiki is a technique of a very gentle, healing and loving touch that provides optimum relaxation to help heal, balance and revitalize the mind, body and spirit. The Reiki session usually takes an hour, however, shorter sessions such as half an hour will have noticeable benefit as well. During the Reiki session the practitioner holds their hands on, or just away from, the recipient's body. Reiki uses symbols, hand positions, mental intension, loving heart to connect the person to 'divine light'/ 'divine energy'/ 'universal life-force energy' for the purpose of healing and renewal. It awakens healing ability in both the self and others.
