Reiki is a healing system discovered in Japan at the beginning of the twentieth century by Dr Mikao Usui. Reiki promotes a deep relaxation which enables the body to heal itself. Many acute and chronic problems may be healed or alleviated through treatment sessions (e.g. broken bones, pain, flu, menstrual problems, etc). Usually, Reiki is transmitted through the hands of the practitioner who lightly touches the recipient or keeps his/her hands a few centimetres away from the body. Reiki can be given to oneself, to others, or to plants and animals.
When receiving or giving Reiki, energies (physical, emotional, mental) may emerge. These energies are allowed to come, stay and dissipate into the loving Energy of Reiki. This way, the energies exhaust themselves, and we are able to acknowledge the peace of our being. This process is both gentle and powerful; Reiki points out the transient nature of our pains and problems which come and go within the permanence of peace.
In this way, Reiki is very practical both for physical and emotional healing as well as for everyday living.
