Reiki was developed by a Japanese man named Dr. Mikao Usui in the early 1900s. Its popularity has spread all over the world, and is now used in many medical facilities, such as hospitals and hospices.
Reiki is the Life Force Energy which restores and brings us to optimum health and balance. All conditions of imbalance and disease are rooted in the human energy field. This means that physical pain and illness are pre-existing in energetic form before they are experienced physically. By restoring the body with Reiki, one’s energy begins to flow uninterrupted. Healing always happens during a Reiki session, although the effects of the healing may not be immediately perceptible to the recipient or the practitioner. Reiki balance and harmonize the entire system that results in alleviation of pain and discomfort, emotional balance and peace, sharpened intuition and clarity of thoughts, relief of stress and tension, and deeper sleep.
