Usui Reiki

USUI REIKI, the origins

The word Reiki means universal life -force energy. Usui Reiki is a form of hands on healing dating back many thousands of years. It was rediscovered by Dr Mikao Usui in Japan in the 19th century.  In practice, Reiki can be divided into two styles – the Japanese style and the Western style.

The Western style, created by Mrs. Takata has its primary focus on following a set pattern of hand placements which is the same for each client. This treatment method covers the whole body and because of this, those areas most in need of Reiki always get treated. In addition, the Western style builds up a reservoir of Reiki energy in the aura of the client that stays with him or her and continues to promote healing after the session has ended.

The Japanese style places greater focus on developing awareness of the human energy field and the development and use of one’s intuition to determine how to treat each person. Reiki works on the mind, body and spirit by stimulating our own natural healing abilities.  It also works at a much deeper level releasing mental and emotional blocks which may manifest as illness or disease.
