Healing aspects

Health and harmony to body and mind...


Reiki means Universal (Rei) Energy (ki). It is the energy that flows through all living things and is vital to the well-being of life. It is an effective and simple way of tapping into this energy and transferring it for the benefit of the receiver.

It is a spiritual healing discipline which has its roots in ancient Buddhist teachings. Its founder Dr Mikao Usui, spent many years seeking the knowledge of healing in ancient texts and received information on Reiki through a vision when meditating on a Japanese mountain.

The Reiki practitioner channels the Ki through his or her hands to the receiver, activating the body’s natural ability to heal itself.

Spiritual healing

The ancient Egyptians and Greeks believed that healing ultimately was spiritual healing. Therefore no healing would take place unless spiritual forces were involved – thoughts also common among Chinese, Indians and Tibetans.

Spiritual healing is the channelling of healing energies through the healer to the receiver. It often re-energises the receiver and relaxes them. This allows their own healing mechanism to ‘kick in’ which helps them to deal with their illness or imbalance.

Healing can be given for any form of illness, stress or injury as a completely natural therapy that is complementary with all conventional medicine or therapies, and it has no side effects.
