What is Reiki?

Reiki is a Japanese technique for stress reduction and relaxation that works to promote healing. The basic idea is that there is an unseen “life force energy” that flows through all of us and keeps us alive. With the use of “laying on hands” this energy can be transferred into the people with low life force energy. The idea is that we must heal in order to avoid feeling stressed or getting sick. The higher the life force energy, the more likely and capable we are to be happy and healthy.

The word “Reiki” is made of two Japanese words – Rei which means “God’s Wisdom or the Higher Power” and Ki which is “life force energy”. So Reiki is actually “spiritually guided life force energy.” When you have good energy flowing through your body you can feel a warm glow and radiance.

Reiki is simple, natural and safe! It is a spiritual healing and self-improvement method that everyone can use. This technique has proven to help almost every know illness and malady and always has some sort of benefit with working in combination with medical or therapeutic techniques to relieve side effects and promote recovery.

Did you know that Reiki is not taught, but transferred to the student during a special class? The ability itself is passed on during “attunement” given by a Reiki master and once transferred it gives the student the ability to tap into an unlimited supply of “life force energy” which can improve one’s health and boost the quality of life.

Both the practitioner and the patient must accept responsibility for one’s own healing, and the Reiki teachings are useful guidelines for living a better life.


Here is a small sample of what Reiki is all about:

Mikao Usui said:

“Just for today, I will not anger.

 Just for today, I will not worry.

 Just for today, I will be grateful for all my blessings.

 Just for today, I will work with honesty and integrity.

 Just for today, I will be kind to all living beings.”
