Frequently Asked Questions
- What is REIKI?
REIKI is an ancient form of healing believed to have spread through Tibet, China and India a few thousand years ago. It was rediscovered about one hundred and twenty years ago by Dr.Mikao Usui, a Christian Theologian, who discovered ancient manuscript texts, which contained the healing symbols, in a Tibetan Monastery. Dr.Usui had spent many years on a quest for the secret of the ancient healing knowledge.
He knew that he had the symbols but not yet the power of healing. He went to a mountain top in Japan and underwent a 21 day period of purification, fasting and meditation at the end of which he received enlightenment and the power of healing. He came down from the mountain and spent the rest of his life practicing and teaching what we now know as REIKI.
REIKI is not involved with religion or dogma although it draws upon both Christianity and Buddhism for some of its teachings and its ethical base. People of all walks of life and spiritual backgrounds appreciate its loving simplicity and benefit from it's healing power
- What physical feelings are to be expected?
generally feel a pleasant sensation of warmth or gentle tingling in the area being treated. As the energy comes into balance, stress and tension is released and there is a deep sense of relaxation and a feeling of well-being.
REIKI works well alongside all other forms of treatment and is truly complementary to both modern western medicine and the various systems of treatment called Alternative Medicine.
