What is Reiki?

Reiki is a form of ‘hands-on healing’ which comes from ancient Sanskrit texts rediscovered by Mikao Usui in the late 1800’s in Japan. The Japanese word Reiki means ‘Universal Energy’, the energy which flows through all living things and is vital to well-being.

This energy is known as ‘ki’ in Japan, ‘chi’ in China, and ‘prana’ in India. Acupuncture, tai chi and yoga use the same energy. You can experience a reiki treatment with Rifa Bhunnoo, which at the very least will relax your body and mind and can also help to heal emotional and physical problems.

How can Reiki help me?

Reiki can work on many different levels, from stress related problems to relationship dilemmas. The healing effects are often felt in-between treatments, where the circumstances causing the situation or problem gently (sometimes dramatically) fall into place and things miraculously work out for the better. We get unstuck and back on the right path, and all of a sudden, doors of opportunity seem to appear and life starts to flow more easily.

Reiki can accelerate the healing of physical problems especially post-operative recovery, balance the emotions including stress, trauma and grief, and free us from restrictive mental attitudes, like jealously, anxiety and anger. It may also provide a closer connection with inner wisdom.

“I have what I like to think is a healthy level of scepticism about reiki healing, but that doesn’t matter. What matters is that I’ve found reiki to be one of the most thoroughly relaxing and de-stressing exercises I’ve ever experienced. I’ll certainly be visiting Rifa again – I’d recommend her to anyone.”  – Joe Brett, London
