TORONTO REIKI TREATMENT CENTRE




WHAT IS REIKI?


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

It is a healing approach that uses light touch from the practitioner to channel healing energy to the recipient. Traditionally it has been used as a very gentle yet effective way to relieve physical and emotional pain and to promote spiritual clarity. Reiki also speeds the healing process and balances the body's energy. Reiki works on physical, mental, emotional and spiritual levels by restoring the lost balance between the mind, body and spirit.

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.

Mikao Usui then underwent a metaphysical experience and became empowered to use these sounds and symbols to heal. He called this form of healing Reiki and taught it throughout Japan until his death on March 9th, 1926. The tradition was passed through several grandmasters of reiki such as Dr. Chujiro Hayashi, Hawayo Takata, and Phyllis Lei Furumoto.

There are many forms of reiki being practiced now. The 7 principal ones are:

  1. Usui Reiki System of Natural Healing

  2. Reiki of 7 Levels

  3. Karuna

  4. Kundalini Reiki

  5. Tummo Reiki

  6. Seichim of 4 Levels

  7. Seichim of 7 Levels

  8. Imara Reiki

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.
