Touch has been used as a primary healing force since the beginning of our human experience. Many peoples and cultures have utilized the power of energetic and healing touch in a way that honors the self-healing properties of all living beings. One of those healing methods is Reiki.
Reiki means – Universal life energy, and is similar to the concepts described by the words prana or chi in other healing systems. Reiki is based on the belief that energy flows throughout our physical bodies and extends into our mental and spiritual realms as well. By working with this energy flow, healing can be achieved. It has been used to aid the healing of almost every known illness and injury. The psychological and spiritual benefits are also well documented.
I have been privileged to learn several different styles of Reiki including Usui, Tibetan, Seichim, and Karuna.
