How does Reiki Work?
The energy of Reiki works by gently opening you up to the understanding that you are the creator of your own reality – that there is no greater power than you. With this knowing comes the realization that everything that happens in your life happens because you want it to…
There are no accidents.
You make what happens happen.
With this awareness comes the realization that every event in your life, including that of illness, is brought to you, by you – and that it can, therefore, be taken away by you as well.
So the short answer to how Reiki works, therefore, is the energy of Reiki works by bringing your power back to…
Who can Learn Reiki?
Everyone! – How is this possible?

Where Does Reiki Energy Come From?
The most common translation of the word Reiki, which is Japanese and pronounced ray-key, is ‘the universal and holy, spiritually conscious, life force energy that energizes and animates all living things’.
Every living thing in the universe is alive because of this energy.

How Can I Experience Reiki?
Most people’s first experience of Reiki is generally through a ‘hands on healing’ therapy session.
During this time they usually report various feelings of warmth.
Some experience beautiful colors, or the presence of spiritual beings but most people simply experience deep relaxation and peace…
Indeed it is not uncommon for many to fall soundly asleep.
How is a Reiki Treatment Given?
A Reiki treatment is usually given in a quiet and peaceful environment with the person receiving Reiki either lying or sitting down.
The person giving Reiki will then transmit the Reiki energy to the person receiving it – placing their hands either on or over various points on the body.
A treatment can last anywhere between 30 minutes to an hour and a half, the usual being about an hour.
There is no need to remove any items of clothing except perhaps your shoes if you are lying down on a couch. So it is perfect for people who feel embarrassed or uneasy about undressing.
What Can Be Treated With Reiki?
In a word everything – for Reiki works on all levels of awareness in body, mind and spirit.
Reiki gives you the extra energy you need to make yourselve better – whilst, sometimes, providing you with a deeper understanding of why you might have made yourselve ill in the first place.
Is It Safe For Use During Pregnancy?

I Have Heard That Reiki Can Be Sent To Others At A Distance. How Does This Work?
At the heart of all metaphysical and spiritual teachings lies the understanding that we are all one and, therefore, all connected.
Our scientists are now beginning to understand these phenomena through their research into quantum mechanics.
You may have already experienced this in action when you have suddenly, and for no apparent reason, thought of a distant friend or relative…
Moments later the ‘phone has rung and it has been this very same person on the other end of the line.
Distance healing follows this same sequence.
Through thinking of the person and intending to heal, the connection is made and the Reiki energy flows to that person.
