A Gentle Approach To Holistic Wellbeing


As there are many different forms of Reiki being expressed and taught today, it's important that each person carefully inquire into the sincerity and experience of a Reiki practitioner, master, or teacher before embarking on his or her own Reiki journey. Reiki, even in its simplicity and beauty, is a powerful catalyst for change.

REIKI pronounced "Ray-key" is a complementary/alternative therapy. REI means universal. KI means vital life-force energy. REIKI means universal life-force energy. Before looking at what Reiki is, lets look at what Reiki is not. Reiki is not a religion. There is nothing you must believe in order to receive, administer or teach Reiki.

Reiki is a gentle and ancient form of alternative or holistic health care utilizing hands-on treatments that work with the energies and chakras of the body in such a way that the body is "re-tuned" to a state of balance and harmony. Some people have compared it to "getting their battery charged." Reiki has the ability to heal, harmonize, and balance the body, mind, spirit and emotions—at whichever level the source of the dis-ease is to be found. It is on its way to becoming the most popular and requested form of hands-on-healing treatment.

Energy therapies are based on the belief that disturbances in energy fields in and around the body result in illness, and that improving the flow and balance of energy can improve health and wellbeing.


Where Did Reiki Originate?

Reiki is documented in the ancient Sanskrit writings of India, but did not begin to spread until its re-discovery in the mid-1800s by Dr. Mikao Usui of Japan. Eventually, he passed the information on to his student, Dr. Chujiro Hayashi, who carried on the tradition of teaching and healing from his clinic in Tokyo. With the coming of WWII, the tradition was passed on to a Japanese American, Mrs. Hawayo Takata, who lived in Hawaii, and thus Reiki was brought to the US mainland, although only sporadically until 1973.

With the transition of Mrs. Takata, her granddaughter, Phyllis Lei Furumoto, became the current Grand Master, and founded the Reiki Alliance in 1981. Since that time, Reiki has expanded and grown in the United States and there are many independent Reiki practitioners, as well as members of the Alliance, all of whom are recognized as legitimate Reiki practitioners.
