“The best and most beautiful things in the world cannot be seen or even touched – they must be felt with all the heart”Helen Keller
Reiki is an energetic practice that is used as an alternative therapy to treat physical, emotional, and mental dis-ease. Although it was founded by a Japanese Buddhist monk, called Dr. Mikao Usui, the origins used within the practice go back many thousands of years.
Reiki is made up of two words “Rei” (which translates as the wisdom of the higher power) and “Ki” (life force energy). The importance of “Ki” is discussed in more detail on the Animal therapies page, but it is safe to say that “Ki” or “chi” is a prerequisite used throughout the body; to cultivate enhanced levels of homeostasis (balance).
Free-flowing “Ki”, rather than stagnant, or blocked “Ki”, is an essential factor required to enable the physical, psychological and emotional realms of the body to work in equilibrium. Morihei Ueshiba a martial artist and founder of the martial art of Aikido explains that “Ki is the energy which harmonizes all things”.
Reiki is a gentle yet powerful approach, that has the potential to assist with the body’s natural ability to heal. Available as a standalone procedure or with other energetic healing “tools”, such as crystal therapy, sound healing, and equine massage depending on your (or your pets) requirements.
Reiki could be described as a means of communication, a language that speaks to the unrestrained life force energy within and outside of us. In this way, Reiki is able to connect on a variety of levels to invite harmony and induce natural healing. By working in this holistic manner, Reiki seeks to take into account, the wider aspects of our outer and inner self. In doing so, the practice seeks to not just address the respective symptoms caused by the distress but also attempts to uncover the root cause. The technique, or the manner in which the process unfurls, is highly representative of the areas that are ready and willing for change to happen. The idiosyncratic manner in which this unwinds is entirely personal. Rather like curling back a spring, or peeling an onion, the layers of discord are revealed piece by piece; in accordance with the individual & their body’s pace and flow. The physical aspects of the body & the sensitivities of the mind allow us to each resonate in different ways; as and when; the body (and mind) sees fit.
Whether Reiki is performed on a personal level or with animals, the principles are the same. To be able to work on a consensual basis, the “client” must take an active part in the process. They must not only provide consent, they must become part of the process in order for it to be able to connect on a cellular level. As Dr. Candice Pert states “Your mind is in every cell of your body”.
