What Is It?
Reiki is an ancient healing system which involves the transfer of health-giving
energy (ki) from the practitioner (master) to the patient to restore
emotional and spiritual balance and allow the body to heal itself.
The name reiki is a Japanese term, “rei” meaning universal
essence, and “ki” meaning vital life-force energy. Ki is
equivalent to qi in traditional Chinese medicine. Reiki masters learn
how to channel energy through their hands via a series of “attunements” to
the reiki energy.
Reiki is thought to be derived from the healing systems developed
by Tibetan monks thousands of years ago. The term reiki, however, wasn’t
used until the late 1800s when a Japanese scholar, Mikao Usui, who
had studied in Tibet, developed a system of healing using the energy
in his hands. Reiki was introduced to the West by a Japanese-American
woman, Hawayo Takata, who trained in Japan as a grand master under
one of Usui’s students, Dr Shuriyo Hayashi.
How Does It
Reiki practitioners believe that illness is caused by blockages in
the flow of vital life-force energy or ki. Reiki masters who are “attuned” to
this energy are able to transmit it through their hands into the person
being treated, removing these blockages and allowing healing to occur.
Reiki practitioners do not diagnose illness and claim that the healing
energy automatically goes where it is needed.
Some researchers suggest that reiki induces a deep state of relaxation
which triggers the release of the body’s natural painkilling
What Happens During
During you initial visit you reiki practitioner will ask about your
health and your reasons for seeking treatment. You will lie fully clothed
on a padded table and the practitioner will place his/her hands on
or near your body at various positions, including the head, abdomen,
feet and back. The hands are held still for four or five minutes (up
to 20 minutes if a blockage is detected) before moving them to a new
position. Most people who have experienced a reiki session feel a warmth
or tingling from the practitioner’s hands as the energy is channelled
through them. The practitioner does not use her/his own energy, and
many practitioners feel more energised themselves after a reiki session.
A reiki session will usually last for 60-90 minutes. Length of treatment
will vary depending on the problem.
What Is It Used
Reiki can help relieve chronic pain caused by illnesses such as arthritis
and multiple sclerosis, and may help with emotional problems such as
depression and anxiety. It may also promote a more rapid recovery from
surgery or burns. Reiki has also been effective for reducing stress
in people suffering from cancer or AIDs.
Reiki should not be seen as a replacement for conventional medical
care, but as a complementary therapy to other conventional or alternative

The Reiki Sourcebook
Bronwen & Frans Stiene
If you teach Reiki, are a Reiki practitioner or are just
plain interested in Reiki itself, then this book will take
your knowledge of Reiki to a whole new level!
The Reiki Sourcebook is the ultimate in up-to-date information
on everything Reiki. It is unbiased and clears up a lot of
the conflicting stories you often hear about Reiki.
My favourite part of the book is the section on Western and
Japanese techniques. There is so much detailed information
in this book that I know I will have it by my side constantly
so I can easily refer to it.
If you are a teacher of Reiki then you simply must have this
book in order to share the best information possible with
your students! If you are a Reiki practitioner this book
will expand your knowledge and help you to understand this
wonderful system of healing and where it came from and where
it is today. If you are not yet attuned to Reiki but are
thinking of becoming involved then this book will answer
any questions you may have about the the what's, why's and
how's of Reiki. - Maureen Oliver
