Reiki has a unique history. Although the Reiki energy itself goes back over 2500 years, as evidenced in Sanskrit Sutras, and the writings of Tibetan Monks and Enlightened Masters, the history of Reiki taught today is much more modern. It begins in the early 1900s. Evidence of Reiki from before World War II remained in Japan and has been rediscovered to the rest of the world very recently.
Reiki works on different levels, the physical, mental, emotional and spiritual, enhancing everything in life. Reiki is not only one of the oldest healing systems in use; it is also one of the most versatile. This ancient Japanese method of healing uses universal life force energy to balance the body and mind, and its benefits can be felt by both Reiki practitioners and their clients. In fact, Reiki is believed to improve just about any aspect of life, from physical health to emotional well-being to stress reduction and mental clarity. Reiki techniques are used to heal the body, mind and the spirit. It has been proven that Reiki can help people suffering from various major and minor ailments.

Reiki treatment is carried out with the client fully clothed. Treatments last approximately 60 minutes and it is a time of complete relaxation. This relaxation releases built up stress and therefore aids the healing process. The practitioner will place their hands on or above the body of the client, whatever is most comfortable. The experience is one of peace, security and well-being. Reiki heals at a very deep level, so even if the physical problem is caused by a deeply emotional issue Reiki will go to the source so that a truly holistic approach is achieved.
Reiki can be used for acute and chronic conditions.
