THE HISTORY OF REIKI
Reiki pronounced “ray-key” is an ancient Buddhist practice - with origins from Tibetan Buddhist teachings - of natural healing therapy that was rediscovered in Japan by Mikao Usui in the mid-1800s. The word Reiki comprises the two Japanese characters, rei, meaning universal spirit, and ki, meaning vital life force or energy. It has become increasingly popular in North America during the past few decades. It is based on the belief that life is dependent on universal, nonphysical energy. Because health requires a sustained and balanced flow of this energy throughout the body, disturbances in that flow result in physical, emotional, and mental illnesses.
Reiki provides a disciplined frequent practice of shaping how we control our thoughts and mind.
"Just for today, I will not worry. Just for today, I will not have anger. Just for today, I will work with integrity. Just for today, I will be grateful. Just for today, I will be kind to all living things."
The belief that the universal life force or energy is present is core to the principle of Reiki as an effective natural healing practice.
Reiki aids in relaxation, stress reduction, and improves overall health and well-being. Some known benefits of Reiki are:
- Bring on a meditative state.
- Foster tissue and bone healing after injury or surgery.
- Stimulate your body’s immune system.
- Promote natural self-healing.
- Relieve pain and tension.
- Support the well-being of people receiving traditional medical treatments such as chemotherapy, radiation, surgery and kidney dialysis.
A complete Reiki treatment usually takes between 60 and 90 minutes. During this time, clients or receivers lie or sit in any position that is supported and comfortable.
