'Just for today do not worry.......Just for today do not anger.......Honour your parents, teachers and elders.......Earn your living honestly.......Show gratitude to every living thing.'
Reiki (pronounced Ray-key) is a Japanese word meaning Universal Life Energy, an energy which is all around us and believed to be over 2,500 years old. Reiki can be traced back to many cultures including Tibet and Ancient Egypt and was rediscovered in the early 1900's by Mikao Usui.
Reiki can effect changes on many levels: physically, emotionally, mentally and spiritually. Energy flows through the hands of the practitioner into the client, where it is needed most, enabling regeneration, rebuilding and balancing of the subtle energy system (Chakras and Meridians).
The method of receiving a Reiki treatment from a practitioner is a very simple process. The recipient simply lies on a couch and relaxes. If they are unable to lie down the treatment can be given in a sitting position, the main thing is for the recipient to be as comfortable as possible and to have an open mind to the treatment. There is no need to remove any clothing as Reiki will pass through anything. The practitioner gently places their hands non-intrusively in a sequence of positions which cover the whole body. A treatment can take between 30 minutes to 90 minutes, depending on clients needs and wishes.
