What is Reiki?
Reiki is an ancient Japanese holistic, light-touch, energy-based healing practice. It is a transfer of high frequency energy from the practitioner's hands to the recipient. When a practitioner provides a session, Reiki restores energy, balance and vitality by relieving the the physical and emotional effects of un-realeased stress and gently opens up energy blockages.
Reiki re-establishes a normal energy flow of life force energy, which in turn can enhance or accelerate the body's innate healing ability. The treatment focuses on balancing energy centres of the body, known as the chakras.
Normally, our chakras are continuously in motion. However, when you have a very strong emotion or thought (resulting from an accident, trauma, heartbreak, etc.) energy can become tightly focused on a specific and/or related chakra. If the emotion or thought is held onto for some time and is left untreated, an energy blockage can form. Over time these energy blockages can lead to emotional and physical problems such as disease or illness.
Reiki treatments help clear the blockages away, returning the chakras back to their healthy, spinning state, and ultimately help the client feel better.
What does 'Reiki' mean?
Translated from Japanese Kanji it means:
REI = Supernatural force or spiritual intelligence, and:
KI = life energy
Therefore in the west it is commonly known as
"Spiritually guided life force energy."

How does Reiki work?
Reiki is a transfer of high frequency energy from the practitioner's hands to the recipient. The practitioner places his or her hands above the various energy centers and pathways of the recipient's body as the recipient lies on a massage table and remains fully clothed. During a session the practitioner enters a meditative state in which they feel balanced, grounded and present as they channel and guide the Reiki energy.
Reiki is multi-dimensional and can heal the cause of a problem on whatever level it may exist (body, mind or spirit). Reiki restores energy and vitality while relieving stress, tension, anxiety and emotions. It opens up blocked meridians and chakras and clears the body of any negative or low-vibrational energy. The Reiki practitioner is able to sense where blockages are occurring and to work on them throughout the session.
How does one open to Reiki energy?
The ability to use Reiki is transferred to the student by the Reiki Master Teacher through an empowerment and attunement ceremony. This is a "reawakening" of a special gift that is laying dormant within you and it cannot be learnt from a textbook. However, some individuals may feel called to practice Reiki at various stages of their life. The attunement process opens up the energy seals and creates a special link between the student and the Reiki energy source. The Reiki attunement causes the student to begin vibrating at a higher physical, emotional, mental and spiritual level. While some people use Reiki only for themselves, others use it to practice professionally. Reiki is a universal energy and is only ever channeled - it does not source from an individual person. Therefore, anyone can be attuned and learn the art of Reiki.
