REIKI is a Japanese (energy massage) healing technique - applied by way of gentle, (non-intrusive) laying on of hands over key chakra points, of which there are 7 spaced along the length the spine, accessed by you lying on either your back or your side, whichever is most comfortable for you.
This technique founded by Dr Mikao Usui in the early 1900's, being based in part on Buddhist philosophy and which works on the physical, mental, emotional and spiritual bodies of the human for purpose of restoring energetic flow and balance; which serves to actively support total body relaxation/self-healing - thereby promoting optimal health benefits and a general feeling of energetic wellbeing.
In particular Reiki
I first came across REIKI Energy Massage whilst in Mexico in 2010 where it became apparent to me that this was such a very powerful self/other healing method that I wanted to know MUCH MORE![>
My insatiable curiosity for greater knowledge, insight and understanding had me travelling to faraway places, for months at a time, attending courses where I felt that greatest opportunity was offered for me to learn.
Reiki training courses (thus far!) include
The advantage of training in other countries I found was the extensive (hands-on) work experience provided by way of local hospices serving remote jungle hillside villages, to large city mental health hospitals to animal welfare centres.
With over 1000 treatments behind me, many energy (training) courses attended, I now have a far greater understanding of the human energy body and in essence have come to the conclusion that - for me - Reiki is a life enhancing energy, in that it assists us in maintaining a healthy body, and most importantly - a kind outlook and loving heart.
