Reiki, which can be translated from the Japanese to mean ‘universal guided life force’, is a non-invasive holistic therapy that channels the natural energy which exists in all of us for the purpose of healing relaxation and wellbeing.
Reiki, a practice of natural healing, was developed by Dr Mikao Usui early in the 20th Century. The principles of Reiki as expressed by Dr Usui are:
Just for today, do not worry.
Just for today, do not anger.
Honour your parents, teachers and elders.
Earn your living honestly.
Show gratitude for every living thing.
Reiki includes four Aspects and nine Elements within its practice. Research carried out in the 1980’s across a range of diverse subjects showed that positive results were obtained regardless of the participants beliefs.
