What is Reiki? How Can You Benefit from it?


Reiki (pronounced ray kee) was developed in 1922 by Japanese Buddhist Mikao Usui. Here is the definition:

Rei- Means the universal energy outside all living things, the highest spiritual consciousness
-ki   Means life force energy that is inside all living things and their surroundings. 
Maria Suciu at Callatis Spa is both a Reiki practitioner and Master in Reiki. In a session, she would lay her hands on you and transfer the universal energy (Rei) to your own life force energy (ki) -- thus bringing you into a state of equilibrium. The practitioner does this via qi (pronounced CHe) which is the balance of negative and positive forms in the body and believed to be essential for good health. If your life force energy is low, you are most likely to be experiencing stress or depression, if it is high you are happy and healthy. Maria taps into your life force energy to improve your quality of life.

Reiki is great for stress reduction and relaxation. It leaves most individuals feeling at peace and with serenity.

The treatment is meant to give you a wonderful feeling because it treats the whole person -- body, mind, and emotions.

Here is one way to sum up the Reiki philosophy:

The secret art of inviting happiness
The miraculous medicine of all diseases
Just for today, do not anger
Do not worry and be filled with gratitude
Devote yourself to your work. 
Be kind to people.
Every morning and evening, join your hands in prayer.  
--- Usui Mikao, Founder of Reiki
