Reiki (pronounced Ray-Key) is a method of hands on healing, developed in Japan during the early 1900s by Dr Mikao Usui. He passed his knowledge on to others, and in the 1970s a Japanese American lady – Mrs Hawayo Takata – brought Reiki to prominence in the West. Reiki is loosely translated as ‘universal energy’ which is transferred through the practitioner’s hands to the patient.

Practitioners are able to use their skills to help their clients to enter a deep state of relaxation, which allows the body to become aware of any ‘dis-ease’ and ultimately to heal itself.

Reiki is given either with the practitioner’s hands on or a few inches away from the client’s body.

The experience of Reiki is subjective, changeable, and sometimes very subtle. People often experience heat from the practitioner’s hands, but sometimes the practitioner’s hands feel refreshingly cool. Other common experiences are subtle pulsations near the practitioner’s hands or cascading waves of pulsations throughout the body.
