∞ Usui Reiki
Reiki (Ray-Key) is an ancient non-invasive hands-on healing method that helps reduce stress, relieve pain and facilitate healing and personal growth. This healing art was rediscovered by Dr. Mikao Usui, a spiritual educator, in his study of ancient Buddhist teachings in the late 1800’s. Reiki means Universal Life Force – the healing energy of the Universe. It involves no doctrines, creeds or contradictions to the Universal Laws of spiritual consciousness and Unconditional Love. The Reiki current is released through the hands and involves a light touch. The Reiki practitioner works with various organs in the body as well as the nerve plexus and chakras in the release of the healing Reiki Ray. Reiki is gentle and greatly enhances all other healing methods.
“As someone who’s formally trained in three professions – as an acupuncturist, chiropractor, and physician – my experience of reiki is that it can be a wonderful, deepening enhancement for anyone, but particularly for people in the healthcare professions. And it can broaden and deepen the practice one already has in ways you will only discover once you embark on that journey.”
