The word “Reiki” means Universal Life Force Energy.

Reiki was “rediscovered” in Japan in the 1920s, by a Tendai Buddhist monk named Dr Mikao Usui but it had been around for centuries and practiced all over the world.

Reiki energy is channelled through the hands of the practitioner who then places their hands on a client with the client fully clothed. All the practitioner needs to do is be “attuned” by a Reiki Master (teacher). This connects you permanently to a source of beautiful healing energy that works on you, your clients and is in the background all the time. When you practice energy exercises, carry out self-treatments or treat someone else, you intensify the beneficial effect that the healing energy has on you as well as the people you treat.

Once a person has opened up to become a channel for Reiki, concentrated life force energy will flow through their hands of its own accord and the ability will be retained for the rest of their life.


You need have no religious beliefs. Reiki re-balances and restores the energy in the body in such a way that it enhances the body’s natural ability to heal itself. It re-establishes spiritual, emotional and mental equilibrium and well being. It clears and loosens up blocked energy and promotes total relaxation. It cleanses the body of toxic waste, whether physical or mental/emotional. More importantly, it goes wherever in the body it is needed and adjusts itself according to the needs of the recipient. It is a very gentle but powerful hands-on technique which brings wholeness to both the giver and the receiver. It can be given in conjunction with any other treatment, whether orthodox medical treatment, natural therapies, massage or physiotherapy. It can be used not only on people, but also on animals and plants.

To benefit from Reiki, you need only to be open and willing to receive the energy. Everyone can learn the Reiki healing art once they have undergone the process of “attunement” or empowerment and the ability that this bestows will remain with them for life.
