Reiki is a method of hands on healing which originated in Japan at the turn of the 20th century. It is a system of healing that transforms and heals the body and mind. Utilising the methods within the Reiki system, the Reiki practitioner transfers the healing energy via his or her hands to another.
According to experts, Reiki energy is the healing energy of the universe which represents a matrix of non-dualistic energy that permeates all things. A Reiki practitioner harnesses this vital energy via a series of attunements, which in effect, switch on the ability to transfer Reiki energy to oneself and others. The transmission of this energy comes via a Reiki teacher, someone who knows the precise methods for creating this alignment within the practitioner. Once this alignment is complete, the practitioner can then use this healing energy in a variety of ways to restore the body, mind and emotions in a harmonious whole.
