usui system of natural healing

What is Reiki?


      Reiki is a Japanese technique for stress reduction and relaxation that also promotes healing. It is administered by "laying on hands" and is based on the idea that an unseen "life force energy" flows through us and is what causes us to be alive. If one's "life force energy" is low, then we are more likely to get sick or feel stress, and if it is high, are more capable of being 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." 


  A treatment feels like a wonderful glowing radiance that flows through and around you. REIKI treats the whole person including body, emotions, mind and spirit creating many beneficial effects that include relaxation and feelings of peace, security and well-being. Many have reported miraculous results. 


Benefits of Reiki:


 Reiki is a non-denominational healing method and is beneficial to anyone who wishes for a better life. Reiki relieves stress as well as any acute medical conditions. It also promotes healthy healing in cancer patients going through chemotherapy. It can aid in emotional stress, eating habits, depression, anxiety disorders, chronic fatigue syndrome, spiritual motivation, infertility, prenatal health, boosting energy and balance, negative thinking repair, trauma repair, and over-all wellness.



 Reiki first degree is focused on teaching a student everything they have to know about the art of Reiki. Here, you will be taught what Reiki really means and what it can do for you. It is the time where masters will give you an in-depth description about Reiki. This includes where it came from, how to give it, and the proper way of using it. After all the concepts are taught and your mental, emotional, and physical nature is thoroughly prepared, hands-on self healing practice will take place. 


Upon completion of the first degree Reiki training, you will know how to use the Reiki energy for self-healing. This same energy can also be channeled to help other people, more specifically friends and family. First degree Reiki will also stimulate personal and spiritual growth as well as self discovery!
