What is Reiki?
Reiki is a healing art originally born in Japan. The sound (Rei) means “Universal Life” and (Ki) or (Chi) means “Energy”. It is a subtle but yet effective form of energy work using spiritual life force or energy and the power of intentions. It is not based on a particular religious practice and we have seen Reiki healers from all corners of the world.
Reiki is the universal life energy that flows through all living things. We believe that everyone has the ability to connect, channel or tap into this healing energy and use it to heal themselves and help others. It is a vibrational healing practice used to promote balance throughout the human system. When a person’s energy is strong and flows freely their body and mind can come to a homeostasis state. In the same way when the energy is blocked and weakened it brings the physical or emotional body into imbalance and dis-ease.
We usually begin a session with our hands positioned at the person’s head or feet. The receiver might feel a warming sensation or a tingling during the session or just pure relaxation. Most people report the session to be very pleasant, relaxing and can be invigorating.
We offer Reiki sessions from 30 min to 60 min or you can choose to receive Reiki during your regular massage session to help ease tension and stress and to facilitate a favorable environment for healing on the physical, mental, and emotional level.
At Shakti Wellness Reiki can be done with or without direct touch (we may apply a light touch, or if a client prefers not to be touched they can indicate this before we begin and the session will be hands-off where we hold our hands slightly above your body). Typically this is performed fully clothed and/or lying inside the sheets with a warm cover.
History of Reiki
Dr Mikao Usui was born on the 18th August 1865 in Japan and was the founder of the Usui System of Reiki or Usui Shiki Ryoho. He is also often referred to as Usui Sensei, (Sensei meaning one who teaches). His tradition and methods were passed through several grandmasters of Reiki. Today, The Usui System of Natural Healing is still the form of Reiki most widely practiced. Practitioners and Master Teachers are trained through an initiation process where Masters pass on their knowledge and expertise to their students.
Usui also mastered Samurai swordsmanship and Kiko, the Japanese form of Chi Kung. Usui was interested in different types of medicine, energy movement and religions, reading widely on all subjects. Usui was looking to find a way to heal himself and others, using his hands, that didn’t deplete his own energy levels and he devoted many years searching for a system. His open minded approach towards other belief systems and religions is why Reiki is accessible to everyone.
