"Reiki is love, love is wholeness, wholeness is balance, balance is wellbeing, wellbeing is freedom from disease."
Dr Mikao Usui
What is Reiki?
The Reiki system of healing was formed and named following discoveries by Dr. Mikao Usui in 1922 when on a meditation and fasting retreat on Mount Kurama in Kyoto, Japan.
It has since been developed to be given in three distinct stages:
Reiki 1 (First Degree)
- The Initiation Degree, to treat yourself, family, friends and pets
Reiki 2 (Second Degree)
- The Practitioner's Degree, to become a Reiki therapist and treat paying customers
- The Teacher's Degree, to pass on your knowledge to students and teach Reiki at all degrees
The Original Usui Method of Reiki is taught on this course and runs for 1 day from 10.00am to 6.00pm
The day consists of:
- What is Reiki?
- The uses and benefits of Reiki
- The Reiki Principles
- The History of Reiki
- Chakras and Energy
- How to give a self treatment and treatment to others (demonstration and practice, including after care)
- Insurance and certificate
By the end of the course, you will be able to give treatments to yourself, friends, family and pets.
Reiki 2 and Reiki Master Training is also available but enquiries should be done directly with Helen Wilkins.
A healing session is very simply performed. After an initial consultation, the customer lies fully clothed on a couch. Reiki energy is then channelled into them by the therapist via a series of hand positions from the head down the body. Each position is just a light resting of the hands - no massage or manipulation.
Often during a treatment heat may be experienced from the therapist's hands.
The flow of energy can be felt in various ways. Often it is experienced as a lovely heat, which reaches deep inside the body. Sometimes it may feel cold or you may experience tingles, usually where a blockage is being cleared.
People may also find Reiki is like a deep meditation and pick up on colours, gain deeper understanding of your life or problem, get memories, visions or past life recall. Sometimes there is spontaneous emotional release from areas that have been blocked off.
Some people don't feel any physical sensation at all but describe mental or emotional changes such as a sense of calmness or peace. Nearly everyone experiences a treatment as deeply relaxing.
Since Reiki creates balance on a mental, physical, spiritual and emotional level it is useful in all situations, either on its own or in conjunction with Western medical practice or other complementary treatment.
Used regularly by individuals it can help recharge, align and rebalance energy in the body.
For minor problems or short term goals one or two sessions may be enough. For significant problems the best results are achieved by three to four sessions three to four days running then weekly sessions spreading out to fortnightly and monthly as the condition improves.
