Healing Energy Arts

The traditional story of Reiki relates to Dr. Mikao Usui, a Japanese man who in the late 1800's, began a quest to re-discover a universal energy that could heal, irrespective of the mental and or physical state of the person applying it. He fasted and meditated for 21 days at Mount Kuriyama and thus received the Reiki ability. Usui applied what he learned and developed what is now known as The Usui System of Natural Healing. He trained others in his methods. One of them was Dr. Chujiro Hayashi who in turn trained a woman named Hawayo Takata and it is through her that the majority of people in the West now know about Reiki. Since then, Reiki has blossomed, and some of the original Usui system has been adapted by some and changed by others. Today, there are at least thirty variations of the original Reiki system.

Reiki is a natural, simple, safe, effective healing system that uses spiritually guided universal energy, the energy that permeates our entire universe and all living things. This energy is channeled through the hands of the practitioner into the body and aura of the receiver. It is an ancient healing system that has been used for thousands of years and was rediscovered by Dr. Mikao Usui.

Reiki is a Japanese term meaning universal energy. During a Reiki session, the person receiving Reiki lies or sits, fully clothed, while the practitioner places their hands lightly on or a few inches over the person's head and body. Reiki heals on all levels: physical, mental, emotional and spiritual to help return the body to its natural, perfect state. Reiki is not a system of religious beliefs.
