Reiki is a Japanese natural healing system that applies Universal life-force energy in hands-on treatments. Reiki heals on the physical, emotional, mental and spiritual levels, going to the root cause of the problem. It is gentle, relaxing, balancing, harmonising and rejuvenating, and always works for the receiver's Highest Good.




Reiki is channelled through the hands and is gentle,
natural, balancing and rejuvenating.



Reiki is a Japanese word (see above) meaning "Spiritually guided Universal energy". Universal energy is the life-force energy that flows through all living things - this energy is also known as "chi" in China and "prana" in India.

Reiki was developed by Mikao Usui in Japan in the 1920's. In 1922, he climbed Mt. Kurama and practiced an "austerity training" which resulted in some kind of spiritual experience leading him to form the Reiki system. He called his system Usui Shiki Ryoho, meaning the Usui System of Natural Healing. Mikao Usui is often referred to as Dr. Usui in the West.

As part of the Reiki system, Mikao Usui incorporated the five Reiki Precepts:
