What is REIKI?
The word REI-KI (ray-kee) translates to mean Universal Life Energy. Many cultures and religions have always been aware of the existence of this basic life-force energy. The Chinese call it "Chi", the Hindus "Prana", and the Christians "Christ-Light".
How Does It Work?
Ki (Life-Force) nourishes the cells and organs of our body, supporting them in their vital functions. As well it nourishes other areas of ourselves; such as the mental (mind), emotional, and spiritual bodies.
Our blood is channelled through our physical body via the pathways of our heart, arteries and veins. So too is Ki force channelled via "pathways" known as Chakras, Meridians and Nadis. It also flows around us in a field of energy called an "Aura".
The balance, amount and quality of our Ki is influenced by a variety of things: air quality, food, stress, hereditary factors, environmental conditions, or simply by our negative feelings or thoughts. These create blockages to our natural flow of energy. When this flow is blocked, we become less vitalised and so feel depressed, run-down and fatigued. This can result in a state of dis-ease within the body which can then become a Physical disease or illness.
Reiki heals by flowing through affected parts of our energy field and charging it with positive energy. It raises the vibratory level of the energy field in, and around, the problem area causing the negative energy to break apart and fall away. In so doing, Reiki clears, straightens and heals the energy pathways, thus allowing the life-force to flow in a healthy and natural way.
Reiki adjusts itself to create this healing effect and every experience is individual. Most commonly felt during a treatment is a sense of peace and relaxation, often including a feeling of security and being enclosed in a fine sheath of energy.
Where is it from?
The ancient healing method of Reiki was rediscovered over 150 years ago by Dr. Mikao Usui. His quest to find out how Jesus Christ and Buddha brought about healings took over 28 years. His research into ancient Buddhist sutras, expanded by prolonged meditation, gave him the keys to Reiki healing. This method has been passed down from Reiki Master to Reiki Master ever since.

Ways to Experience Reiki ..
Reiki is usually channelled through the hands of the Reiki practitioner. Every person has the potential to channel Reiki. All that is usually required is fine tuning the body, heart and mind by a qualified Reiki Master, like fine tuning your T.V. for better reception.
Reiki Treatments: A treatment involves a Reiki practitioner laying their hands on a person, in various positions, to channel Reiki energy. Reiki energy flows through clothes, towels, plaster casts, etc. Reiki is great for easing physical pain, emotional turmoil, and accelerating all forms of healing.

Reiki Level 2: "Express Yourself":Another weekend course where the Reiki symbols are introduced that expand upon the understanding of energy. The concept of Absent Healing is also demonstrated. This level is concerned with the expressing of energy to the outside world.
