FAQ

Q. What is Reiki?
A.
Reiki is a form of alternative therapy developed in Japan in 1922 by Mikao Usui.  The word Reiki comes from the Japanese word (Rei) which means “Universal Life” and (Ki) which means “Energy”. Reiki is the life energy that flows through all living things. Everyone has the ability to connect with their own healing energy and use it to strengthen energy in themselves and help others. It is believed that a person’s “ki” or energy should be strong and free flowing. When this is true, a person’s body and mind is in a positive state of health. When the energy becomes weak or blocked it could lead to symptoms of physical or emotional imbalance. A Reiki treatment session can help ease tension and stress and can help support the body to facilitate an environment for healing on all levels – physical, mental, and emotional. A treatment session is pleasant and relaxing and is often utilized for one’s personal wellness.

Q. What is Distance Reiki?
A. Distance Reiki is when a Reiki Practitioner sends healing Reiki energy towards an individual, animal or plant who is in another location to the Practitioner. Reiki healing energy can also be sent to a situation, event, place, or group. Sending Distance Reiki transcends time, meaning that the healing energy can be sent to the past, present, or future.

Q. What can I expect from a Distance Reiki Treatment session?
A. The Reiki Practitioner will agree the time of the Reiki Treatment session with you beforehand. At the set time, it is adviced that you are calm and avoid distractions for the duration of the treatment. If you can sit with your eyes closed, this is best. It is also adviced that you avoid alcohol before the session. During the treatment, you may feel heat or warming sensations, tingling, slight pulsing sensations, coldness, or have the feeling of floating. You may also have auditory or visual experiences, such as seeing a range of colours and shapes while your eyes are closed, or hearing different tones. These experiences are all completely normal. It is also possible for you to not feel anything at all during the session, or even to fall asleep. This does not mean the treatment isn’t working for you, instead it means that the way your body, mind, and spirit can receive the best healing possible is for it to work on a deeper level of consciousness that cannot always be felt in a waking or surface state. The Practitioner at their end will end the treatment at the agreed time.  A time comes when you feel as though the treatment is complete, allow yourself as much time as you may need to gather yourself and feel comfortable sitting up and then walking around. I do recommend drinking an extra glass or two of water for the next few days to help ground the experience. Reiki is a healing modality that works on the emotional, physical, mental, and spiritual aspects of a being. It is Universal Life Force Energy that knows where it needs to go for the highest good of all. Your own internal intuition will help your consciousness expand to accept the Reiki on the deepest levels that it needs healing. Your Reiki experience is always lovingly and completely tailored to you naturally, for the greatest needs at the time.

Q. Is Reiki linked to Buddhism?
A.
Whilst Reiki was founded by Mikao Usui who was a Buddhist, he had respect for all religions including Christianity which he had studied. At one point in his life he lived with a Christian family and had Christian friends. He did not want Reiki to be a religious practice but wanted it to be a simple healing technique that anyone could use. Reiki energy comes from God, which is understood to be the one Universal God. If you are interested in Reiki and are in the process of making a decision about receiving a Reiki treatment, we suggest that you pray or meditate about it and then follow the guidance that comes to you.

Q. Is Reiki a religion?
A.
Reiki is not a religion. It is not affiliated to any doctrines or creeds. Reiki is something that anyone of any culture, background, religion, belief or society can choose to be a part of if they feel drawn to it. It does not ask you to believe in any particular religious associated beliefs. Religions are usually involved with issues such as heaven and hell, sin and salvation etc. and have a doctrine or code that one must believe in in order to be a part of the religion. Reiki does not deal with these things. Reiki is an alternative healing therapy. It does not require one to give up one's religion or for one to change one's religious beliefs in any way to practice it. One can still practice one's chosen religion and remain open to accessing natural or alternative healing approaches which add to one's abundant living.
