Reiki helps you regain your balance on four levels; physically, mentally, emotionally and spiritually and in your energy system.
Reiki goes to the root of the problem
and makes the necessary corrections in the energy system of the body in a holistic way. After the therapy you will feel not only balanced and in harmony but also energised and content.
I obtained my first Reiki I degree 15 years ago in 2003,
and my first Reiki II degree in Budapest in 2011. I repeated my Reiki I and II courses both in Budapest and at The Reiki Academy London. I am a qualified master, teacher and therapist in both the Western Lineage (Usui Shiki Ryoho) and the Eastern Lineage (Usui Reiki Ryoho) .
I am a fully certified and insured member of The Reiki Academy, the UK Reiki Federation and the Reiki Council.
I parctice self-Reiki every day and I am grateful to Reiki for all those wonderful and sometimes miraculous changes it has brought into my life and into those people’s lives I have treated with Reiki during the last 15 years.
A Reiki treatment can be done in seated or lying position whichever is more comfortable for the recipient.
You will be fully dressed during the treatment, since Reiki will find its way easily to you through your clothes, as it can reach its destination from any kind of distance.
Reiki can be sent to you to the remotest part of the world and you will experience it in the exact same way as it had happened an inch away from your body.
I will channel the energy for you by placing my hands over different areas of your body, each place for a few minutes. You will probably experience warmth, occasionally tingling and be peaceful and deeply relaxed during and after the treatment.
In most cases you will find that the problem you meant to have the Reiki treatment for, diminishes and you will feel more comfortable, balanced and in harmony yourself.
A Reiki treatment is usually one hour long or it can be adjusted to your needs. I can assure you however that the time spent on and with Reiki will well worth your time.
You will find yourself in a warm, cosy and friendly environment, listening to soft, relaxing background music if you like it and you can let go all the unnecessary worries and anxieties of everyday life.
What is Reiki?
“Rei” means: Spirit, Divine, Source.
“Ki” stands for Universal Energy or Universal Life Force Energy
Reiki is universal and not only in its name – meaning Universal Life Force Energy or Spiritual Energy – but also in the sense that it has a wonderfully beneficial effect on everybody and everything be it a human being, a plant, an animal or an event, with no contraindication whatsoever.
Sometimes Reiki can bring about positive changes almost instantaneously, depending on the problem it is channelled for.
Reiki is a complementary energy healing system. It complements conventional medical treatments very well, but does not substitute them. Therefore, I would never recommend to use it instead of a treatment advised by your GP or other health care professionals.
In my own experience as well as those of my clients’ Reiki soothes stressful feelings, relieves pain, shortens the recovery time from an injury or an operation, helps you feel balanced, sleep better and be relaxed mentally and emotionally.
As the saying goes: “The proof of the pudding is in the eating.” I will not try to persuade you that Reiki is a fantastic way to bring about changes in your life, I will rather suggest you try it for yourself.
A brief history of Reiki
The energy healing system of Reiki (pronounced “Ray-key”) was founded by Mikao Usui (1865-1926) in the early 20s. He developed the system and made it accessible for everyone.
The history of Reiki and Sensei (Master) Usui is still controversial and full of surprises.
He came from a samurai family, was even a Buddhist monk for a while though living with his wife and children. He had a spiritual interest from his young adulthood. He studied different Buddhist traditions and forms of meditation. He also had a worldly job, travelled a lot in Europe and in America. He was trying to find some deeper understanding and peace in himself and the world around him. At last he decided to retreat for a long meditation on Mount Kourama, near Kyoto which was a well-known place for people who were inclined to search their inner lives.
After 21 days of fasting and meditation when he was close to dying, all of a sudden he saw an extraordinary light around him, he immediately came aware of everything he was looking for in all his life. It was the moment of his enlightenment. What he didn’t immediately realise was that through this experience he had developed healing hands as well.
After returning home he moved to Tokyo and started practicing Reiki, although he never used this name himself. He became more and more popular since the healing was very effective for all kinds of physical, mental, emotional and spiritual problems and disorders too. He started teaching Reiki. He was convinced that if he could heal then anybody could.
To enhance the effectiveness of this energy healing system Mikao Usui introduced attunements and symbols for the practitioners which have become essential parts of the system.Reiki was introduced in the western world by one of Usui’s students, Hawayo Takata.
