A simple and profound technique that uses the hands to channel vital energy.
The touch is light and acts on an energetic level, often without any physical contact.
What it is
Originally from Tibet and rediscovered in Japan in the last century by a Christian monk – Dr. Mikao Usui, professor at Kyoto University – Reiki is a technique that is as immediate as it is natural, and that helps us rebalance and renew our sense of physical and mental well-being.
Reiki is a term or more accurately a Japanese ideogram that means “vital force of universal energy”: REI is the universal energy behind the motion of the planets, the shining of the stars, the movement of the oceans, the blossoming of flowers, and so on, while KI is the individual energy present in each living being, whether human or animal, plant or rock.
Reiki is neither a religion nor a concept, but just the awareness of our own energy, our birthright, aimed at the achievement of inner harmony as well as physical and mental well-being.
Extremely simple and yet powerful, Reiki is transmitted when the practitioner places hands on specific points of the recipient’s body and applies light pressure.The recipient experiences a sensation of gentle, pleasant, and intense heat, capable of unblocking the deepest tensions and channeling new energy into the organism. This vital and universal energy sets off a process of total rebalancing on the physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual level.
Practicing Reiki makes us more alive, more energetic, more positive, more open to allowing the vital energy to liberate us from the illusory sense of separation from everything else. It helps us gain the awareness of being one with the universe, just like a wave is the ocean itself.
