A Healing Space


Reiki Reiki (pronounced Ray-key) is a Japanese word meaning Universal Life Energy.

I came across Reiki when I was writing a web site for a Reiki practitioner and was asked to experience it so I could know what I was talking about.

I didn't know what to expect but I was so pleasantly surprised by it. Never had I felt SO relaxed and when I got up my knees (always dodgy) felt different and better.

Shortly after that I got this same practitioner to give me my first 'Reiki attunement' as it is called and that was a strange experience for me. I got so hot that I would cheerfully have jumped fully clothed into a freezing cold bath if had the chance. And ever since then I have felt this strange "fizzing" in my hands when I give someone Reiki, and occasionally when I am near someone and I subsequently find out they are ill or in pain. Weird or what?

For the life of me I can't explain any of this - it just is what it is.

Reiki originated in Japan in the late 1800s by Usui Sensei. There are many stories about him on the net and it is difficult to discern which are true.

Reiki was brought from Japan to the West in 1937 by Mrs. Hawayo Takat who continued to practice and teach until her death in 1980.

What Happens

A Reiki session lasts about and hour and all you have to do is lie fully clothed on the couch and relax. During the hour the practitioner places their hands on the head and various parts of the body. People usually relax very deeply during the session and often drop off to sleep.

There are many benefits to achieving this state of deep relaxation - both to physical and psychological health
