There are many interpretations for how Reiki came to be, but however deep the history goes, Mikao Usui is most traditionally considered the founder, because it was Usui who introduced the art to a wider audience.
His practice began in the 1920s after an insightful 21-day prayer and meditation practice, and in his lifetime he is said to have trained over 2000 people in the art of Reiki. Today, there are over 25 different offshoots of Reiki, but Usui Reiki remains one of the most practiced and respected
According to Usui’s practice, the purpose of Reiki is to help show people how to heal their own spirit by making the conscious decision to do so. It is the receiver’s active participation in a Reiki session that helps to determine the success of the treatment.
My teaching is that of the Usui Spiritual Energy Healing Method, from the founder Usui Mikao. The teaching allows me to help my clients with the release of tension, anxiety, anger, and all other negative feelings while promoting a state of peace and overall wellbeing. Reiki is not a cure for disease or illness, but rather a complementary practice in addition to other treatments or alternative practices.
A Reiki session will help stimulate the energy within the body while removing negative energies. This primes the body to begin work on healing itself. Reiki is a GREAT ADDITION to anyone’s overall health and wellness routine by helping the body to accelerate healing, cleanse toxins, balance the flow of energy, and discover your own “healer within”.
