Reiki is an ancient wellness art known for relaxation, reduction of pain and an intuitive opening of the mind, heart and spirit. The restorative art was re-discovered in Japan during the 1800's by Mikao Usui. Reiki is a technology which channels vibrations from practitioner to receiver. The touch is gentle or there is the option of scanning with hands slightly above the body. Clothing does not have to be removed. Participants can lay down on a massage table or sit in a chair.
Most indigenous cultures all over the world continue to maintain their restorative traditions which pay homage to energy connections. Reiki is spiritual in nature, as it is focused on compassion and peace, however, it is not a religion. Reiki can open and develop healthy intentions and provide transitional support for a better quality of life. For some, the tranquility of Reiki is utilized for pain management, relaxation on the level of a mini vacation, spa like pampering experience or even a power nap.
Reiki is also used as an integrative service in hospitals.
For a practitioner, Reiki honors five ethical principals on a day by day basis:
Just for Today, I will not Worry
Just for Today, I will not Anger
Just for Today, I will be Grateful
Just for Today, I will be Honest
Just for Today, I will be Kind
