I have never taken a Reiki course, as this is what comes to me naturally, reiki means universal energy
Reiki : Mikao Usui founded: the ‘Society of the Usui Spiritual Energy Healing Method’ or in Japanese: the ‘Usui Reiki Ryôhô Gakkai’ in the early 1900’s in Japan and shared his wisdom, which is known to the modern world as Reiki.
Traditional Reiki history tells us that sometime between 1914 and 1920 Dr Usui experienced a profound enlightenment while meditating during a 21-day fasting retreat on Mount Kurama in Japan. He received the healing ability he called Reiki, along with the knowledge and ability to impart that to others.
There are several potential benefits of reiki, including:
Stress reduction: Reiki promotes relaxation and helps to alleviate stress and anxiety. It can help individuals to feel more peaceful and centred.
Pain relief: Reiki has been shown to help reduce pain and discomfort, including chronic pain conditions. It can help to improve overall well-being and quality of life.
