What is Reiki?
is a natural healing method that everybody can learn. It has a profoundly transformative effect. Reiki will introduce you into new ways of being that invite balance, harmony, and a sense of wholeness.
There are no contraindications for Reiki. It prompts relaxation, boosting the body's capacity to
Japanese Monk, Mikao Usui, is the founder of the Reiki system of
healing. He rediscovered the healing method in ancient books but didn't
know how to apply it until he had a mystical experience while meditating
and fasting in 1922, on Mount Kurama, a sacred mountain of Japan.
The word REIKI combines two Japanese words: Rei, meaning universal
energy and Ki, meaning the energy that animates all living beings
(equivalent to the Chinese word Qi, and the word Prana for Hindus). When
Rei and Ki flow harmoniously together, we are in optimal physical,
mental, emotional and spiritual health.
means our connection with the universe, our restitution to the whole.
Blockages to the flow of energy at any one level of our being manifest
as symptoms or disease.
What does a Reiki practitioner do?
REIKI, the practitioner funnels universal energy to her or himself,
other person, a pet or a plant with the intention of supporting healing.
Healing is not solely the disappearance of a symptom, but a complete
resolution of the causes of disease. in the case of people, this implies a
process of personal evolution and the restoration of the memory of our
is a principle of REIKI, common to other energy healing modalities,
that vital energy nourishes the organs and cells and when this energy is
blocked or impeded, the body cannot continue to work well. A similar
concept is found in traditional Chinese medicine, some Japanese healing
practices, pranic healing, esoteric healing and Ayurveda.
practitioners can place their hands over the aura of the person who is
receiving the treatment or directly over their body to help restore the

What are the effects of Reiki?

peptides, substances that mediate the communication between cells, and
thus, between organs. This process of communication has a correspondence

REIKI has lasting effects, especially when the receiver is committed to a process of evolution, of transformation.
What to expect in a Reiki session?
REIKI session is a pleasant and relaxing experience, very helpful in
emergencies as it alleviates pain, sedates and helps to stop the
bleeding. Notwithstanding, a transformational process is our sole
responsibility. If I have a headache, REIKI will help to alleviate it,
but if it's caused, for example, by the excess of caffeine I put into my
body, the headache will continue to bother me until I turn into
people want to experience REIKI with the expectation of a miracle.
Miracles occur, that's true, but the person must arrive first at a point
where a qualitative change may happen. The person must have experienced
a series of minor changes in their attitude, thoughts, behavior, that
have accumulated over time to prelude a climax. When this moment
arrives, the person will be open to the energies surrounding them and
will allow for a miracle to happen. In these cases, REIKI and the
guidance of a master, facilitate the process. In most cases, the miracle
is a change in perspective. From abusing the body to starting to love
it. From living in a frenzy to finding joy in quietness. From being
unaware of other human beings to starting to appreciate their value. From feeling as a victim, to realizing own potential and taking responsibilty.
In REIKI sessions, the healer may examine person's beliefs towards health and illness and
how those ideas frame their relationship with their bodies. No change is going to happen until the
recipient is ready. Either a will for transformation is needed -
sometimes a will that transcends our consciousness - or the strength to
accept that sometimes we cannot bring about change.
when we express our desire to introduce changes in our habits and
attitudes, sometimes circumstances interfere. The opposite being also
true, sometimes we express resistance and skepticism but our soul is
ready for the necessary changes that allow our progress.
