What is Reiki and what can it do for you ? 

Reiki is a healing method from Japan, which works through the laying on of hands. It brings balance to body and mind. Reiki means universal life energy. That energy is in each of us and it can be used for healing. The practitioner asks Reiki to put the self-healing ability of the person being treated to work. Reiki makes you feel lighter, more balanced, there is more awareness, just to name a few things. The latter makes the forest smell much more wonderful, you see things during walks and bike rides that you did not see before.

The tradition I follow is Usui Shiki Ryoho Reiki.

(Japanese for the Usui system of natural healing) 

A Reiki treatment can be given to any person. Reiki can also be given as a distance treatment through the energy.

And groups can be 'treated' by sending Reiki to a process that does not run among themselves, for example. That also applies to a group of colleagues.

Because Reiki is so universal, it can be combined with all common therapies and also regular medicine. Healing can speed up when you receive Reiki and you yourself come to rest, which is also a positive factor. There are no contraindications to Reiki: you can receive it safely in all situations. 

Just to be clear

Let me make it clear that I am not a doctor or psychologist who can 'cure' just anyone. In case of complaints, I advise you to contact your (general) doctor. A Reiki treatment is a very desirable addition and supportive, but is never a substitute.
