It originated thousands of years ago in Tibet and the tradition was passed down through Buddhism before
being rediscovered in Japan in the early twentieth century. There is no belief system or set of rules to follow.
It is perfectly safe and has no ill effects whatsoever; it complements all other forms of healing and treatment.
Healing is carried out by the laying on of hands. Sometimes one feels warmth from the healer’s hands;
at other times there may be coolness or tingling.
It is always deeply relaxing and effective for pain relief.
We let go of mental pain and anxieties too, feeling revitalised and strengthened.
The most wonderful effect is in our personal growth and our spiritual awareness.
We begin to understand better just who we are and how we should live.
We become more involved in life and closer to other people.
‘Reiki’ means universal life force, a spiritual energy within us all. But our energy is often disrupted
by physical pain or illness, or by emotional anxieties and fears.
This healing is a loving method to restore harmony so that our life force can flow naturally.
Reiki is an intelligent energy that treats the causes of our pain.
All that is required is a willingness to let go of pain and to be healed.
