Reiki is healing energy. One supplies that energy by laying one’s hands on someone’s sore place(s) and if the person needs it, the healing energy will flow directly into that place. Thus, it is a kind of magnetization or laying on of hands: transferring the healing energy from the therapist to the client.
One can also give someone remote Reiki, although a direct treatment works more pleasantly. Giving Reiki goes through clothes; so you will never have to undress. A treatment takes between 20 and 50 minutes. Putting one’s hands on a sore spot is a really automatic reaction (think of the parent who puts his/her hand on a child’s hurting spot). One then gives protection and also healing energy. Unfortunately, because Western society has become so rational, we have forgotten this possibility of application. The Reiki that is given by me is in the tradition of Mikao Usui (the founder of Contemporary Reiki) and his ideas. Mikao Usui lived from 1865 to 1926.
