The name Reiki is made of two japanese words ‘rei’ meaning ‘universal’ and ‘ki’ meaning ‘energy’. Reiki is an ancient form of healing rediscovered by Mikao Usui in the late 1800s. Today, Reiki continues to be taught by Reiki Masters who have trained in the tradition passed down from Master to student. It is important to understand that the Reiki practitioner does not use their own energy but has been attuned by a Reiki master to channel universal life force energy to the recipient. My Reiki Master is Cheryl Finch.
There is no belief system attached to Reiki so anyone can receive or learn to give a Reiki treatment. The only prerequisite is the desire to give and accept the Reiki energy. Integrating Reiki with Reflexology felt a natural process for me to follow and offer to my clients if they wish to receive it.
Reiki energy is like a river – it flows through our bodies, following the most natural path in filling us up. Reiki energy is profoundly relaxing, helping to still the mind, heal the body and bring inner peace. Clients who have received it as part of their Reflexology treatment, often describe feeling deeply relaxed, clear headed and rejuvenated.
