Reiki is a form of energy healing which has been on this earth for many, many thousands of years, back to the ancient civilisations of Mu and Atlantis. In these civilisations, the “laying on of hands” touch healing was taught in schools just as maths and English are taught today.
‘Rei” means ‘universal spiritual wisdom’ and ‘Ki’ is the life force energy, or chi or prana. All living beings possess Ki and this life force energy is the source of life itself and far older in concept and fact than any religious philosophy. Reiki practitioners are attuned to the greater surplus of Ki energy and act as a channel for this life force. The universal life force is responsible for the healing; the Reiki practitioner is just the channel for it. The energy heals on all levels, spiritual, mental, emotional and physical and heals the whole person. In a healing, the Reiki energy always goes to wherever the cause of the disturbance lies, ie the cause of the headache might be an emotional disturbance and the intelligent life-force energy goes to that emotional source and the physical disturbance.

How does Reiki work?
Reiki is an energy based medicine and it works on an energetic level. It is based on a similar hypothesis to the crystals in that people and animals are more than just physical Be-ings. We have a dense physical body and three other nonvisible, nonphysical bodies that are energy levels comprised of Ki. The Ki directs the state of the physical body. When we channel the Ki from the universe into these outer energetic bodies, it heals all four bodies, instead of just working at the physical level.
Many metaphysical and energetic forms of healing believe the roots of all dis-ease lie in these outer energetic levels and at the mental/emotional levels. The physical problems are just manifestations of an imbalance on these energetic levels and to heal the dis-ease, these roots must be discovered and treated. Thus channelling Ki into the body and allowing it to go to wherever it is needed, healing occurs energetically through balancing and restoring the natural flow of energy. This is why it works so well with the crystal healings.
As a Reiki practitioner attuned to both Reiki I and II, the universal life energy flows through me whilst the crystals are also working their vibrational magic on the patient. I allow this flow of healing energy to go wherever it is needed and this increases the power of the healings by adding another modality of energy, ie, universal energy in addition to that of Mother Earth and the crystals.
What can I expect from my Reiki session?
Reiki Healings by themselves include a 30-60 min session initially involving a 5-10 min discussion on the client’s physical/emotional issues and then channelling the Reiki energy into the client’s body. The standard 21 healing positions will be used in addition to focusing on specific areas of need. The price relates to the length of the session, at a bargain of $1 per minute.
Reiki and Crystal healings are also easily combined and involve the addition of crystals lying on the client’s body and under the massage table. The client can then choose whether he/she wants to remain passive and receive healing energy or be more active and partake in a crystal healing requiring visualisation techniques and emotional release.
