In the mid 1800's Dr.Mikao Usui started his search for a healing formula that would work.The quest to find and learn the skill of healing took him 10 years.He spent a lot of time in prayer and meditation and found the formula for healing and named it Usui Shiki Ryoho. Mikao Usui gave the Master/Teacher attunement to sixteen people including Dr.Chujiro Hayashi, who was responsible for keeping the essence of Reiki alive after Dr Usui's death. Dr Hayashi opened a Reiki clinic in Tokyo where he demonstrated through research that Reiki identifies the source of physical symptoms and restores the body's energy equilibrium. He used this information to create the hand positions,the system of the Degrees,and the attunement procedure. When great war dawned on his land, Dr.Hayashi passed the complete Reiki teachings on to a woman named Hawayo Takata. She fled the war, ended up in the USA and so Reiki was spread.
Reiki is a hands-on healing technique with no religious influence.Reiki is a Natural Healing System that any one can learn.The word Reiki means "Universal life force" and it is this energy that is used to heal and balance the patient physically, emotionally, mentally and spiritually. Everything within and out us is made of energy and we are all part of one great energy field. It is this flow of energy that sustains life and it is believed to flow through the body via meridian pathways/chakras ( spining wheels of energy).It is the disruption of these energy pathways,often caused through stress and tension,that cause the onset of dis-harmony and disease. Regular Reiki treatments or sesions can help to restore and balance energy levels .
A reiki treatment affects the body,mind,emotions and spirit.Each one is as important as the next,the goal being to bring the whole body into a state of balance and harmony.
The cost is R250 for an hour treatment
