The Japanese word ‘reiki’ can be translated as ‘universal life energy’ and the Usui System is a way of working with this energy for healing of self and others. We live in a world of energy that nourishes and maintains all living things. 

Whether we are working through a chronic illness, trauma, stress, or simply establishing healthy habits, we must address our energy surrounding them to change and integrate our new intentions fully. Reiki can be an amazing complementary tool to help clear blockages, unite our energetic system, ease stress and anxiety, ground, regain energy and detoxify our emotions and negative or repressed energy.

When this energy flows uninterrupted there is balance and harmony within and around us, and we experience a sense of well being.

what is reiki?

“As running water smoothes the jagged edges of a rock until it is small enough to roll away, Reiki flows to the areas of need, soothing and supporting the body's natural ability to heal itself”

- Dr Mikao Usui

The method of receiving Reiki is simple. The recipient remains clothed and lies on a couch or sits on a chair and relaxes. The practitioner gently places their hands in a series of non-intrusive positions on or near the body. There is no massage or manipulation. The whole person is treated rather than specific areas. 

Reiki practitioners are not trained in diagnosis and will not predict any specific outcome from treatment. If people are concerned about their symptoms they should see a doctor.
