About Reiki

Reiki, the energy healing system, is based on the belief that thoughts have the power to direct energy—the underlying dynamo shaping the world. Often described as a form of Shinto-Buddhist Qigong, reiki was rediscovered by Dr. Mikao Usui, in Japan. in the early 20th century. Dr Usui's initial task was to discover how spiritual leaders such as the Buddha and Christ were able to perform miraculous healing through mere touch without depleting their own energy reserves. A deep spiritual experience led him to devote several years to the study. During his quest he experienced an intense energy gratification, which had healing powers. He named this energy—Usui Reiki Ryoho. His disciples, after the World War II, popularized the concept and its practice in the West.

Your Wholeness Creates A Better Healer In You

Unfortunately, there are many gifted healers who feel drained, out of balanced and who have reported taking on the clients' issues.

This is NOT necessary.  A healthy, balanced healer only delivers clear, pure healing energy and is not vulnerable to being affected by outside forces, including the pain, confusion and other blockages of clients.
