Usui Reiki (better known simply as ‘Reiki‘ (pronounced ray-key) is a Japanese word, literally meaning ‘Universal Life Force’. It was originated by Dr Mikao Usui in the 1920’s and later brought to The West.
It is a very restful and relaxing healing method. The patient lies, fully dressed, on a couch while the Healer holds their hands over their body, at various places, about 6 to 12 inches (or more) above or to the side of the patients body.
The treatment usually takes about 40 minutes out of a 60 minute appointment.
