Usui Reiki


Reiki (pronounced RAY-KEY) translates in Japanese to mean “Universal Life Energy.” It is an ancient healing technique, for use on self, others, animals, plants and the Earth. Reiki has been used for centuries to achieve balance in the mind, body, and spirit and treat physical and emotional imbalances.

The Usui System of Reiki (Usui Shiki Ryoho) was founded in the late 19th century by Dr. Mikao Usui. Usui Reiki has three levels, each with attunements (meaning your energy is raised to the higher frequency of Reiki energy). Reiki energy can only be channeled by people who have been attuned or initiatied by a certified Reiki Master Teacher.
