What is Reiki?

Reiki (‘pronounced ray-key’) is a Japanese word that describes universal life force energy, a gentle yet powerful, healing energy that runs through all things. When this energy is low, then you are more likely to become sick or feel symptoms of stress. When this energy flows freely through an individual, then well-being can be restored.

A Reiki treatment can be enjoyed by anyone and works alongside conventional medicine.

Golden Way Reiki

Golden Way Reiki comes directly out of the ancient Lineage of Dr Mikao Usui and all practitioners are attuned and trained in traditional Japanese Usui Reiki. Golden Way Reiki also embraces ancient Earth medicine and wisdom with practitioners being attuned to the ten human energy centres (chakras) and being trained to create and hold Sacred Space. When treating clients, all ten energy centres are treated, thus providing balanced and long lasting healing. Golden Way Reiki treatments follow a clear structure and purpose, offered as cycles of treatments, promoting healing in a safe, nurturing environment.

A Brief History

Energy healing is believed to date back many thousands of years, first used by Tibetan monks, and then rediscovered by Dr. Mikao Usui in the late 1800s.

Dr Usui carried out research into many different forms of healing and medicine and studied different religions, working towards achieving the ultimate state of mind. His extensive travels and studies did not lead to enlightenment, so in March 1922, he spent 21 days meditating and fasting in a mountain retreat on Mount Kurama in Japan. At the end of this time he experienced a profound awakening as Reiki energy entered his mind, body and soul, as well as the understanding of how to use this energy to heal others. After this event Dr. Usui set up a clinic in Kyoto where he treated and trained others to use this healing energy, with first and foremost, a focus on healing oneself. His open-minded approach enabled Reiki to be accessible to everyone and now this healing energy is used throughout the world.
