What is Reiki?

Reiki is an energy healing technique, in which the Healer channels Universal Life Force Energy (ULFE) from the universal source to the recipient. ULFE exists everywhere in the universe – it gives life to matter and is essential for the efficient functioning of all living beings. It is not exclusive to any particular belief system or way of life.


How does Reiki work?

Our thoughts and emotions (as reactions to our daily experiences) generate electrical charges (Positive or negative energy) within us. The flow of ULFE is responsive to these charges.


When we accept (Consciously or unconsciously) negative thoughts about ourselves (or others) or deny the emotions we are feeling, the flow of ULFE through our bodies is disrupted. When the blood supply to a part of the body is disrupted, the body malfunctions. Similarly, when the flow of ULFE to a part of the body is disrupted, malfunction and disease results.


A deficiency or imbalance of ULFE may lead to impaired functioning of certain parts of the body and mind, and this is often the root cause of many physical, mental, emotional disorders such as depression, anxiety, stress-related disorders (IBS, Crohn’s, OCD, etc.), addictions, cancer.


Reiki clears, strengthens and heals the body’s energy pathways, thereby facilitating a healthy and natural flow of energy through our bodies.
