What is Reiki?

Reiki is an energy healing practice which originated in Japan. The word means ‘universal life energy’. Practitioners use the life-force energy or “ki” all around us and are able to pass it on to re-awaken the natural healing process in others by focusing the energy on the areas that it is most needed.

There are different styles of Reiki; the one that I practise is called Jikiden Reiki. This method is based on teachings from an original authentic Japanese lineage. It is a hands on and distant healing art and practice that attunes and develops natural latent human healing energy and balances body, mind, heart and spirit in a structured way through light, gentle, non-intrusive touch and compassionate intention and regard.

“Reiki is compassion in action.”
