WHAT IS REIKI?
Reiki is a Japanese word signifying Universal Life Force Energy, the energy that shapes all of life. When activated and applied for purposes of healing, Reiki accelerates the body's ability to heal physical ailments. Reiki opens the mind and spirit to the underlying causes of disease and pain, and promotes balanced wellness. At Pure Reiki, the Usui System of Reiki Healing is taught by Reiki Master Daniel Pure, who is trained in the traditions of Reiki formulated by Dr. Mikao Usui and whose personal and professional life is committed to this healing art. Those who learn Reiki become Reiki practitioners. Being a Reiki practitioner provides an individual with the means of maintaining balance in their own health and that of their families and friends. Reiki can also be incorporated effectively into the healing arts practiced by health professionals.
WHO DISCOVERED REIKI? WHERE DID IT START?
Reiki, as a natural system of healing, was re-discovered by Dr. Mikao Usui in the latter part of the 19th century. Reiki was brought to the West by Mrs. Hawayo Takata, Reiki Master par excellence. Today, the Usui System of Reiki Healing is practiced throughout the world. A more detailed "history" of Reiki is shared by a Reiki Master in a Reiki Level I Class.
HOW DOES REIKI WORK?
The universal life force energy passes through the Reiki practitioner to the client as the practitioner places his/her hands on the client. Reiki works on all levels of the body, mind, spirit continuum. The healing energy will go to wherever it is needed by the recipient.
WHAT WILL RECEIVING REIKI FROM A CERTIFIED REIKI PRACTITIONER DO FOR ME?
A Reiki healing session creates a sense of peacefulness, serenity and well-being. While Reiki may be used for a variety of health conditions, it is not necessary to be "sick" to receive Reiki. Many people are learning the value of receiving Reiki for the sheer joy of it.
CAN REIKI BE USED IN A HEALTHCARE SETTING?
Reiki is increasingly being used as an adjunct to allopathic medicine in hospitals, clinics, wellness centers, and hospice. When Reiki is combined with traditional medical therapies, the healing benefits to the patient or client are greatly enhanced. Many physicians, nurses, hospice workers, nurse aides, and other healthcare professionals have successfully integrated Reiki into their practices.
