What is Reiki?
Reiki is a gentle and safe hands-on healing system for personal growth and development, health care and harmonization of physical and psychological processes. This system was developed by a Japanese spiritual adept named Mikao Usui (1865- 1926) and is one of the most effective alternative therapies of our time.
The Japanese word "Reiki" also refers to the spiritual (non-polar) form of life energy (Ki). "Non-polar" form of energy means that its behaviour cannot be described in terms of Yin and Yang, plus and minus, the qualities of a major chakra or of one of the spiritual elements.
The way Reiki heals is by promoting the natural processes of life. Reiki cannot do any direct harm; it affects the body in a way to make it more alive on all levels. Tension and relaxation find their natural balance in the right rhythm. Creativity, the ability to build relationships, vitality and the inner harmony will increase.
The Usui System of Natural Healing is a system of holistic healing and personal development work based on the fundamentals of Traditional Usui Reiki which awakens the ability to make Reiki, the spiritual life energy, available to oneself and to others at any time by laying on of hands.
