What is reiki?

Rei = Universal / Ki  = Life force energy

The literal translation of reiki is ‘universal life force energy.’ It’s an energy therapy that can be done in-person or online.

What is universal life force energy?

All living things—people, plants, and animals—have essentially the same energy flowing through us, keeping us alive.

How does reiki work?

This energy has an innate intelligence, which is a term used to describe its natural ability to organise, maintain functioning, and restore health.

An example of this is when we cut ourselves. All we have to do is make sure the cut is clean. There’s no need to will the body to heal the cut. The innate intelligence of the life inside us knows there’s something that requires attention, to be restored to health, and so will go there to rejuvenate it.

What is reiki healing?

When receiving reiki, the innate intelligence of the reiki energy (i.e. universal life force energy) knows where to go and what to do for whatever you require most at the time. It’s a truly holistic treatment that’s able to assist with a wide variety of physical, mental, and emotional issues.

Physically, reiki assists the natural process of healing to occur more quickly, and can relieve aches and pains. Mentally it balances the brain for more optimal functioning, and emotionally it can clear blockages to allow energy to flow and restore balance. It can clear the emotions and assist us to let go of emotional pain, calm the mind, and clear negative thinking.

The most common effect of reiki is facilitating emotional health


Will reiki for me?

Ultimately, what this means is that reiki is able to assist with almost anything.

Every person is different, so each person will have a different result. For some people, the changes are immediate and obvious. For others the shifts that happen are less noticeable, because the shift that’s occurred has been on a more subtle level, yet they notice that somehow something is different.
