Rei – Ki (pronounced Ray-Key)

Is the question I get asked all the time! I am not surprised as not so long ago I too was quite ignorant of what reiki is. I spend a lot of my time explaining to my clients what reiki is and hence the need to develop this website.

Rei – Ki (pronounced Ray-Key) is a system of natural healing involving the laying on of hands, and is very likely to be thousands of years old. It is widely believed that the technique was first used by Tibetian Buddist monks and was rediscovered in the 1800’s by Mikao Usui.

The Usui system of Reiki healing is a very simple yet powerful healing technique that is easily learnt, easily given and received by anyone.

Reiki, as history explains, has its origin from Japan and means ‘Universal Life energy’. “Rei” means a subtle spiritual wisdom, responsible for the evolution of all kinds of lives, whereas “ki “means a non physical energy that flows through all living things – humans, animals and also plants. The measure of the Ki present within a self determines its energy level in a directly proportional way.

Effects of Reiki

Reiki promises a positive effect on all forms of illness, that include minor headache or stomach aches, common colds, flu and anxiety, along with serious illness of the heart, cancer.

Reiki Healing is quite a practised process and in this process, the Reiki energy flows to the patient from the Reiki healing practitioners. The client remains fully clothed and the practitioner uses different hand positions around the head, shoulders, stomach and feet. However, depending on the amount of Reiki the client needs in a particular position, the Reiki healing process is carried on. It is one of the safest treatments and can be implemented even on children and pregnant women.

Reiki in London is very famous and there are extensive courses on Reiki training. The ability to provide Reiki treatments is transferred from the teacher to the student during the Reiki training in UK.
