The secret art of inviting happiness, the miraculous medicine of all diseases:

Just for today,
Do not anger
Do not worry
Be filled with gratitude
Devote yourself to your work
Be kind to all

Every morning and evening, join your hands in prayer.
Pray these words to your heart and chant these words with your mouth

Usui Mikao, Founder of the Usui Reiki Method


REIKI . . .

Reiki is a Japanese technique for stress reduction and relaxation that also promotes healing. It is administered by "laying on hands" and is based on the idea that an unseen "life force energy" flows through us and is what causes us to be alive. If one's "life force energy" is low, then we are more likely to get sick or feel stress, and if it is high, we are more capable of being happy and healthy.

The word Reiki is made of two Japanese words - Rei which means "God's Wisdom or the Higher Power" and Ki which is "life force energy". So Reiki is actually "spiritually guided life force energy."

A treatment feels like a wonderful glowing radiance that flows through and around you.
Reiki treats the whole person including body, emotions, mind and spirit creating many beneficial effects that include relaxation and feelings of peace, security and wellbeing.

Reiki is a simple, natural and safe method of spiritual healing and self-improvement that everyone can use.  It works in conjunction with all other medical or therapeutic techniques to relieve side effects and promote recovery.

While Reiki is spiritual in nature, it is not a religion. It has no dogma, and there is nothing you must believe in order to learn and use Reiki. In fact, Reiki is not dependent on belief at all and will work whether you believe in it or not. Because Reiki comes from God, many people find that using Reiki puts them more in touch with the experience of their religion rather than having only an intellectual concept of it.

Since Reiki is not a religion, it is still important to live and act in a way that promotes harmony with others. Mikao Usui, the founder of the Reiki system of natural healing, recommended that one practice certain simple ethical ideals to promote peace and harmony, which are nearly universal across all cultures.

Reiki is a wonderful healing method as well as a safe complement to Western Medicine, Chinese Medicine, Homeopathy,Therapeutic Aromatherapy and all other forms of healing.

As the nature of Reiki supports energetic balance and harmony, it always finds the origin of the problem (since all health problems are “dis-ease” or imbalance) and works for the highest good (rebalancing and clearing the energy “flow”).

What are the benefits of Reiki for pets?

Reiki is ideal for use with animals because it is gentle, noninvasive and doesn't require physical contact. It doesn't cause stress, discomfort, or pain, and yet yields powerful results. Animals respond intuitively to Reiki's power to support the healing of emotional, behavioral, and physical illnesses and injuries.  

For animals who are healthy, Reiki helps to maintain their health, enhances relaxation and provides an emotional sense of peace and contentment.

  • Because Reiki is healing energy, it will never harm you or your pet.

  • It can be given to any type of animal.

  • If your pet has emotional problems due to a traumatic situation such as abuse, neglect, or being hit by a car, Reiki can help release and heal those emotions.

  • For behavioral issues such as nervousness or hyperactivity, Reiki can help your pet relax and reduce their stress and anxiety.

  • If your pet is sick or injured, Reiki can help your pet heal more quickly. If your pet is facing a serious illness, Reiki can help bring comfort and be a great compliment to conventional treatment.

  • If your beloved pet is transitioning, Reiki for animals can help bring peace and comfort to you and your pet during this difficult time. It helps them to relax and allows them to move forward and beyond the physical realm with ease and comfort.
