Usui Reiki is a spiritual practice developed in 1922 by Japanese Buddhist Mikao Usui. Reiki means ‘universal life energy’ and the practice of Reiki transfers that flow to the recipient through the hands in a very soothing way which can never harm or cause negative side effects in the way that medicine can.
The body is made up of electrically charged matter, which should flow like a river and create a smooth even vibration throughout. When this flow is interrupted or blocked, negative effects can be seen and felt. Many things can ‘block’ our path to happiness, such as stress, attachments, past trauma,abusive relationships, insecurities, financial strain, ignoring our true identity, unhealthy habits, or grief. They often manifest as emotional issues, inability to maintain relationships, damaging behavior, obsessive or addictive issues, etc., or can appear as general malaise, depression, feeling run-down, lacking focus or direction, becoming withdrawn. They can also manifest as physical symptoms such as headaches, neck and shoulder pain, nausea, sinus issues, joint pain, skin disorders, digestive problems, weakened immunity, and so on. Reiki can help you to release that which is no longer serving you physically or emotionally and replace it with love.
