HOW DOES IT WORK?
Reiki practitioners channel divine healing power through their hands which helps the body to heal itself. No extra tools or products are required and it can be used as a part of every other method of healing. It re-balances the human energy levels, strengthens the immune system and calms the mind. Reiki is gentle and non-invasive and it never causes any harm.
WHERE DOES IT ORIGINATE
It was rediscovered about a hundred years ago by Dr Mikao Usui in Japan.
WHAT CAN REIKI HEAL?
Reiki is an holistic form of healing; it treats the source of any disease – emotional, mental, physical and spiritual. Simple and profound, it comforts, soothes, relieves pain, speeds physical healing, stops bleeding and releases emotional trauma from the present and the past. Reiki activates the bodies’ self-healing mechanism.
WHO CAN LEARN REIKI?
Reiki is available to everyone regardless of age and circumstances and all people, including children, can learn to use it. Reiki cannot be learned from a book alone. In order for the healing connection to be made a Reiki Master has to attune the student.
