Restful Energy - a relaxation and healing practice

Richard Knowles, RMT, IARP

Usui Reiki Master 


Reiki (ray-key): a gentle, hands on energy healing technique that brings about balance and well-being to the body, mind and spirit and promotes the healing process.
The belief and practice of Reiki re-emerged in 19th century Japan. It is the energy of the universe that flows through the hands of the Reiki practitioner.
Although Reiki is a hands-on form of healing, no manipulation of the body is involved.  Therefore there is no risk of injury, or of any discomfort occurring.  Reiki is a form of complimentary therapy, is suitable for everyone, including the ill and disabled, the elderly, small children and babies.

Reiki is about restoring a sense of harmony and wholeness.  Reiki has its own wisdom and can be empowering and flows to the areas which require balancing.  It is a simple yet powerful method of healing.  During and after a Reiki treatment many individuals feel  a sense of calm, release, and peace.

The word Reiki is made up of two words - rei, meaning "universal" in Japanese and ki, which means "life force."
Reiki has become increasingly well-known and widely accepted in hospitals, hospice and medical facilities throughout the country.
