Usui Reiki

What is Usui Reiki?

Usui Reiki (generally just known as Reiki), is a safe, non-intrusive technique of hands on healing. It treats the ‘whole’ person and can restore balance both physically and emotionally. Usui Reiki is the oldest and traditional version of Reiki that is taught nowadays.

No specific religious or spiritual beliefs are required (although those you may have will be completely respected). The only pre-requisite when receiving a Reiki healing treatment is the desire to be healed.

Reiki (pronounced ray-key) was developed in Japan by Mikao Usui, early in the 20th century and translated, means ‘universal energy’. Eastern medicine has always recognised and worked with this energy, which flows through all living things and is vital to well-being. It is known as ‘ki’ in Japan, ‘chi’ in China and ‘prana’ in India. Acupuncture, T’ai Chi and Yoga are also based on the free-flow of this energy in a person. Reiki healers channel this energy through themselves to the client and it will travels to wherever the client most needs it.

At times, both life and ill health can be very stressful. Reiki can help us cope by encouraging relaxation and bringing about balance to both body and mind. Following a treatment, clients can feel deeply relaxed, which promotes a calm and peaceful sense of well being on all levels.

Reiki energy is easily adapted to most medical conditions and may be used safely on people of all ages, including the newborn, pregnant mothers, surgical patients, the frail and the elderly, in any situation. It is also ideal to use as a ‘self healer’ on yourself.

Usui Reiki hands on healing

Being complementary, Reiki also works effectively alongside orthodox healthcare and other natural remedies, expanding your treatment options.

I feel so much lighter, more positive, focused and really, really good.”

A Reiki treatment will start with a brief discussion about a client’s specific needs and expectations. When appropriate, the Reiki healer will start the Reiki Healing. This is carried out with the client lying on a treatment couch, or sitting in a chair, fully clothed and in a relaxed position. The Reiki healer gently places their hands, non-intrusively, in a sequence of positions on, or above the client’s body.

Most people find Reiki healing deeply relaxing and calming. Clients may experience physical sensations such as warmth, cold or tingling, sometimes emotional release, or maybe nothing at all. Some clients fall asleep during a treatment. Whatever their experience, Reiki will be travelling to wherever their body needs it.

Please note that Reiki Healing does not take the place of conventional medicine. Always consult a GP for an acute or infectious condition and for problems of urgent concern.
