Usui Reiki

Reiki is an ancient and sacred healing art. In Japanese characters, the word “REI” means God consciousness, while the word ” KI” means Life force Energy. Therefore, Reiki could be defined as spiritually guided healing energy.

Life force energy KI animates all living things. When your life force is low or restricted in its flow, you will be more vulnerable to illness. Reiki heals by flowing through a person’s energy pathways (chakras, meridians) releasing energy blockages, and raising a person’s vibrational energy.

During a Reiki session, the recipient lies, fully clothed, on a massage table. The practitioner gently places her / his hands on certain areas of the body as s/he channels the healing energy.

A Reiki session is very calming and nurturing.

Key Benefits

Relaxation in and of itself is very therapeutic. It creates a heightened sense of well-being, releases muscle tension, and provides relief from anxiety and depression. Relaxation has been shown to improve the immune system, circulation and enhances healing throughout the body.
