The form of Reiki that I practice comes from the Usui System of Natural Healing created by Dr. Mikao Usui in Japan in the 1920s. Reiki has a very colorful history from it's journey originating in Japan to the United States in the late 1930s. Because of the tensions between Japan and the United States at the start of World War II, a lot of 'mishistory' has been told and retold over the years about Reiki's origin
I first learned about Reiki Healing in 1982, thanks to a zen monk Tokuda Sensei who took me under his wing and taught me his healing techniques. Since then I lived in monasteries and trained with many Masters. I taught and gave Reiki all over the world, including prisons, hospitals, veterans, animals, athletes , actors, musicians and many more.
Reiki Healing Therapy
Reiki is a form of energy healing that can help alleviate physical, emotional, mental and spiritual stress. It is a way to ‘tune-up’ your energy to it’s healthiest state allowing for healing to take place. Reiki is a gentle and safe healing practice that is geared towards removing any energy blocks in our system caused by emotional, mental or physical stress and pain. During a Reiki Sessiona practitioner places his or her hands on the client with the intention of the Reiki Energy to flow. This Reiki energy, also known as the Universal Life Force Energy, is not the practitioner's energy. It is a divinely guided energy that knows exactly where the blocks are and pushes them out as well as fills up the energy gas tanks wherever you are low in energy. And because Reiki does not use the practitioner's energy it is safe for both the practitioner as well as the Reiki recipient.
During a session person may feel heat, tingling or cooling sensations as blocks are removed. Most all clients get to a deep state of peace and relaxation.
Reiki philosophy is based on the body's ability to heal itself naturally once energy blocks are removed. Reiki is not tied to any religion or a particular spiritual belief system and can never cause harm.
