More importantly, why not reiki? Welcome to Cotswold Reiki. Reiki healing (pronounced “ray-key”) has a long and impressive track record for its ability to take you places you've never been, and to experience things you might never have experienced. It takes you on a journey of self-discovery, self-healing and immense well-being. Reiki (a generic word in Japan meaning ‘spiritually-guided, universal energy' used to describe many types of healing and spiritual work) is believed to date back hundreds of years. This ancient form of spiritual healing was first used by Tibetan Buddhist monks before being rediscovered by Dr. Mikao Usui, a Japanese Buddhist, in the late 1800s.
what is reiki?
Reiki is a natural, non-invasive, safe and painless method of energy healing and self-improvement which everyone can benefit from, including animals. As such, it is being used increasingly within the NHS and in hospices across the UK, particularly in palliative care. This gentle, Japanese technique is administered by the ‘laying on of hands’ using light touch, or by placing the hands above the fully-clothed body resting on a bed or in a chair. Treatment is based around the idea that an unseen life force energy - known variously as ‘ki’, ‘qi’, ‘chi’ or ‘prana’ - flows through and between us, affording us life itself. When channelled by the Reiki Practitioner, it always flows to where it is needed for the greater good of the recipient, hence it can never be abused or misused. If one's life force is low, then we are much more likely to become ill or feel stressed ('dis-eased'). If it is high and balanced, we can be happier and healthier. It's that simple. Reiki balances our energy levels, helps to relieve stress and works on the root cause of any disease - whether physical, emotional or spiritual in nature.
let the care come to you
Reiki can be administered in your home, your place of work, gifted to your loved ones, and can even be given at a distance (known as 'absent' or 'remote' healing). It is suitable for all ages, any condition, is not affiliated to any religion or group, and provides safe, painless and non-invasive treatment. You won't be asked to stop taking any prescribed medication. Usui Shiki Ryoho Reiki attunements and training up to Master/Teacher level are also available should you wish to become a practitioner or teacher and pass this amazing energy healing modality on to others. Please get in touch to experience the wonders of reiki, promote your own well-being and make a positive change for yourself or others.
