What is Reiki?

Reiki is a hands on healing technique, for stress reduction and relaxation promoting true healing.
Reiki can assist you to heal from a wide range of ailments; from stress related disorders like skin rashes and insomnia, to panic attacks and migraine headaches as well as pain relief. It is also helpful for people who have had emotional traumas, as it naturally balances the mind, body and spirit.
Reiki uses specific hand positions on or above parts of the body that correspond to major organs, endocrine glands and energy centres. This method increases your healing potential, enhancing the immune system, clearing blockages, enabling health and vitality to return.

What Is Reiki?

“A practice that relieves not only the external, physical sufferings, but the internal sufferings and obscuration of humankind” Dr Usui”

  • A system of healing using spiritually guided life force energy.
  • Passed on by an attunement from a Reiki master.
  • A Philosophy and system for personal development.
  • Can help develop intuitive sensitivity and spiritual awareness
  • A Powerful healing system that can be applied through touch or intent
  • An honoring of the teachings given by Dr Mikao Usui (1865-1926)

The Term Reiki is a Japanese word used to describe a system of healing originally known as Usui Shiki Ryoho, or The Usui Way, so titled by its founder Dr Mikao Usui. Though it is difficult to verify the exact events surrounding his life it appears the system was developed by Dr Usui as a result of a keen personal interest he had in Kanji characters, symbology and mantras contained within ancient Sanskrit texts. Also his deeply felt connection to Spirit led him to research the relationship between the nature of healing miracles and the wisdom of the Sanskrit teachings. In following this personal calling to understand the nature of energy healing Dr Usui was led to devote his life to the research of what we now know as Reiki.


Hawayo Takata – features prominantly in Reiki history as the master who brought Reiki to the western world. She lived in Hawaii and before her death in the 1970’s, had taught 22 Reiki masters. Most of the Reiki that we know and love in the western world comes through the Takata lineage.

Defining The Essence Of Reiki.

Reiki in essence is Love. Whenever I have practised giving Reiki there is a powerful flow of energy into my body, the concentration of which fills my heart with tremendous warmth. This energy is so tangible that at times it feels like I am literally painting or sculpting with loving light. The analogy of a ‘living ocean of energy’ is the most accurate definition of the essence of Reiki I have found. What’s more this ocean of energy is an intelligent force. It knows where it is needed the most. Reiki is something anyone can learn to do as we are all intimately connected to the Universe.

Reiki is a useful tool for self awareness and personal transformation and often provides the support to release many unwanted issues from the past. Reiki is a non invasive therapy, there is no need to undress the patient, Reiki works just as effectively through clothes, blankets and in the case of accidents through plaster casts. Reiki can be used in conjunction with many other therapies. Reiki is not affiliated with any religious dogma or practice enabling people from any religious background to learn it. Reiki is not based on belief, faith or suggestion rather the direct experience of those that practice it.

Usui Reiki Healing.

Reiki (pronounced Ray-key) is a simple but powerful Japenese technique to promote healing, reduce stress and aid relaxation. It was discovered by Mikao Usui in March 1922.

Reiki is administered by “Laying on hands” but can also be hands off if required. I can also add colour to your Reiki healing, thus making the healing even more powerful! I have had some wonderful results working with Colour and Reiki energies.
