Reiki (rei-universal ki-energy) is a Japanese energy practice. It is a dynamic healing method that uses this universal energy sometimes through the gentle laying on of hands and other times by active direction of this healing energy while close by, or through distance healing when not present.
Reiki is extraordinary for physical healing, emotional, spiritual, artistic and mental development as well as for relaxation. It is a powerful tool for pain relief, energy building to accelerate recuperation and maintaining balance on all levels.
Reiki was developed by Dr. Mikao Usui in the Japan in the 1920s. He was a Buddhist monk, as well as a business man. He studied various energy systems before developing Reiki, and then creating a healing society which he named 'Usui Reiki Ryoho Gakkai',of the 'Usui Reuki Healing Society'.
Reiki can be learned through attainments from a Reiki master/teacher as well.

arthritis, colitis and even anxiety. These kind of conditions need constant care, as well as the emotional support to cope. When your healing is in your own hands, you
Students receive the first four energy attunements. These hand on 'initiations' open you to receive and to become a vessel for this energy. Breathing, movement,visualization and meditation are taught and practiced to aid in opening exercises and working with Reiki.

The experience of Reiki energy deepens as students are attuned to the first three Reiki symbols. Their multi-faceted qualities and uses are taught and practiced. Much discussion and of what it means to heal another, as well as what we experience while giving a healing is explored. The practice of patience, discernment and what prayer has to do with healing is also given attention. The art of dealing with patients is also discussed.
