What is Reiki?

Reiki is Universal Life Force. The energy that exists in all things. What some call the Divine, The Universe, God Consciousness or Source. It's energy.


The Reiki we've come to know today (created by Mikao Usui, originally called the "Usui System of Natural Healing") is a Japanese light touch energy healing modality and it promotes relaxation in the mind and body, decreases stress and facilitates healing. The word Reiki translates to Universal/Spiritual/Divine (Rei) Life Force (Ki).


A belief within Reiki is that in perfect conditions, the body knows how to heal itself. Offering Reiki can assist in restoring the natural flow of energy and encourage the body to heal. Over periods of time Reiki can support incredible healing and transformation, physically, mentally, emotionally or spiritually.


Practitioners work with clients by channelling this Life Force Energy. Treatments often feel like a gentle, loving radiance flowing through and around the body. Reiki treats the whole person, including the mind, body, spirit and emotions. This creates a gentle and profound experience with many benefits and often, incredibly transformative results. Benefits of Reiki include:

  • Restoring a sense of peace and calm in the mind and body

  • Silencing mental chatter

  • Decreasing stress, tension and anxiety

  • Balancing emotions and increasing clarity

  • Promoting restful sleep

  • Supporting the body in its natural ability to heal itself

  • Shifting and unblocking stagnant energy in the body

  • Supporting our transitions and transformation in life

  • Assisting in healing deep emotional wounds

Reiki is a safe and effective healing modality that is very complimentary to other therapeutic and medical treatments. Over the years, Reiki has been used to support the healing and recovery of many illnesses and has been studied for its impact in the medical industry.


Center For Reiki Research.

Reiki is also a simple technique to learn and can be integrated into your personal and/or professional practice. While Reiki is a wonderful healing method with many benefits, when we go beyond using Reiki for energy healing and allow it to become a spiritual practice, integrated into everyday life, a world of healing and transformation is possible.


Whether receiving Reiki or learning it, Reiki is a simple but powerful healing modality to incorporate into your life.
