What is Reiki?

Reiki’s true translation is ‘Spiritual Energy‘, it is all around us and within us.
It’s a myth that Reiki only works through the hands, yes it does of course, but the hands are only a small part of what Reiki is. Reiki is in every pore of the body, we are Reiki. The benefits of the Reiki System are too many to write, Reiki heals on every level when I say heal I don’t mean it’s a cure, it’s there to help our body work in the way it should, and much more. Reiki is not a belief system, it is not a religion and does not contradict any religious faith- it works with them.

Without roots, a plant or tree will not grow and bear fruit. By exploring and practising the roots of the system of Reiki and the teachings of Mikao Usui, we can begin to understand the original Reiki system.

To explain a little more what Reiki is, visualise a free flowing river, this beautiful river is like energy flowing easily down through the body.
Occasionally a pebble or even a rock will fall into this river, making the flow of the water a little more difficult. These pebbles are human worries, fear, anger and grief.

The pebbles begin to build on top of the other and soon only a trickle of water is running in that once beautiful free flowing river. And so it is with energy within the human body.
Energy flow can be obstructed so much that at this point physical pain may be experienced. The need to let go of these obstructions is essential for our healing and spirituality.
