Sally's two Part Interview about Reiki on Radio Saga 106FM February 2007
What is Reiki? Reikiis the name given to a system of natural healing which evolved in Japan from ancient teachings. Reiki continues to be taught by Reiki Masters who have trained in the tradition passed down from Master to student. The word Reiki (pronounced ‘Ray-key’) means Universal Energy - The energy that flows in and around every living being. Current research strongly suggests that energy does extend throughout and beyond the physical body, and that disruptions or imbalances in its flow correlate to physical, mental and emotional illness. The healing art of Reiki addresses these imbalances to support good health and well-being.
TheUsui System of Reikiis the most simple and natural healing method known to man. The Reiki practitioner is a channel for this energy, for it is not his/her own. Reiki is directed through the hands to wherever it is needed.
Developed by Dr Usui after his enlightenment on Mount Kurama, Reiki has spread throughout the world as a respected form of healing used by many millions of people.
Reiki is complementary to all forms of treatment. The effects of Reiki can help restore and balance energy, reduce anxiety and alleviate pain, whilst promoting restful sleep, healing and relaxation. Relaxation provides a host of benefits for the mind and body including a sense of well-being and release of muscle tension.
Reikimay be received as a therapeutic treatment and/or as part of a personal journey of well being. With regular use Reiki offers a multitude of benefits, physically, emotionally and spiritually. Generally people feel less stressed, more energised and far more focused. Reiki is often life changing – especially when a student is attuned to the energy – it then becomes the beginning of self-discovery, a spiritual journey towards enlightenment.
"Since the wonderful Reiki treatment you gave me a little while ago my energy has changed, it was like an immediate switch on and since then I have been calmer, happier and less afraid of moving forward" Marina Johnson, Nottinghamshire
