The Usui Reiki system is considered to be the original Reiki system taught by Dr. Mikao Usui. It consists of Reiki Level 1 and Reiki Level 2 plus Reiki Master / Teacher level.

WHAT IS REIKI?

Reiki is a Japanese touch therapy for relaxation and pain relief that also promotes healing. Although Reiki is a hands-on procedure it is administered through a very gentle touch. This can be done when the client is seated or lying down and fully clothed, the practitioner’s hands are placed along energy centres and pathways on the head, neck, shoulders, upper chest, abdomen, legs, and feet (similar to those used in acupuncture).

WHAT IS THE HISTORY OF REIKI

Reiki is believed to have begun in Tibet several thousand years ago. Seers in the Orient studied energies and developed a system of sounds and symbols for universal healing energies. Various healing systems, which crossed many different cultures, emerged from this single root system. Unfortunately, the original source itself was forgotten.

Dr. Mikao Usui, a Japanese Christian educator in Kyoto, Japan, rediscovered the root system in the mid-to late 1800s. He began an extensive twenty-one-year study of the healing phenomena of history’s greatest spiritual leaders. He also studied ancient sutras (Buddhist teachings written in Sanskrit). He discovered ancient sounds and symbols that are linked directly to the human body and nervous system, which activate the universal life energy for healing.

Reiki Lineage refers to the traceable line of a Reiki Master back to Dr Mikao Usui.

The lineage was created, when Dr. Mikao Usui passed on the Usui system of healing to Dr. Chujiro Hayashi, Mrs. Hawayo Takata who was attuned by Dr. Hayashi.  Mrs. Takata attuned the following 22 Reiki Masters:

George Araki, Barbara McCullough, Beth Grey, Ursula Baylow, Paul Mitchell, Iris Ishikura, Fran Brown, Barbara Weber Ray, Ethel Lombardi, Wanja Twan, Virginia Samdahi, Phyllis Lei Furumoto, Dorothy Baba, Mary McFaden, John Gray, Rick Bockner, Bethel Phaigh, Harry Kuboi, Patricia Ewing, Shinobu Saito, Kay Yamashita (sister of Mrs. Takata) and Barbara Brown

YOU

The Usui System of Natural Healing balances and strengthens the body’s energy, promoting its ability to heal itself. Reiki was introduced to the Western world in the mid-1970s. Since then its use has spread dramatically worldwide.

Reiki means universal energy (Rei = universal, ki = energy). “Rei” describes its boundless aspects and “KI” is the energy force that flows through all living beings.

Reiki is not the vital energy of a person (bio-energy). Reiki represents the universal energy and it corresponds to the energy body that is at the base of all the other energies in the universe. This energy is completely beneficial, being capable of healing any energetic disharmony or imbalance. Being a universal form of energy, it acts in the direction of maintaining the optimum equilibrium in the universe.

HOW DOES REIKI WORK?

Reiki is one of the more widely known forms of energy healing. Energy healing involves direct application of Ki for the purpose of strengthening the client’s energy system (aura). Ki (in Japanese) or Chi (in Chinese) is the term used by the Chinese mystics and martial artists for the underlying force the Universe is made of. Mystics in all cultures have talked about the physical universe being made of an underlying form of something, much as modern physics research is now coming to understand the Universe is made of energy which is subject to (or affected by) thought.

After being initiated by a Reiki Master, the practitioners’ energy aura is modified in such a way that the hands are now capable of sending (channeling) Reiki energy in a spontaneous way, continuously, without effort. This capacity or ability to heal others and oneself will not be lost or changed (raise or shrink) during the practitioner’s entire life.
A Reiki Practitioner does not do the healing…The Reiki healing is done through the Universal energies that the practitioner channels through them.

REIKI ENERGY DOES NOT COME FROM US…IT COMES THROUGH US!

PRIVATE REIKI SESSION WITH CYNTHIA

Reiki is a natural, ancient, hands-on healing technique that is both gentle and powerful. Essentially, it is the “laying on of hands” to manipulate the universal life force energy, or “ki,” that inhabits and connects us all in order to restore balance to the body and accelerate its natural ability to heal. Reiki, as well as being an amazing healing modality, can also be a graceful path to self-discovery.

Benefits of Reiki include:

  • Detoxification and cleansing
  • Acceleration of the body’s natural healing ability
  • Re-balancing of the body’s energy
  • Calming of the mind and emotions
  • Strengthening of the immune system
  • Improves the effectiveness of other healing modalities

Investment: $80/90 minutes ($50/distance session)

Please note that a Reiki Treatment is not a replacement for medical care.
