Reiki 4 Stress

Why Reiki?

A great number of today’s illnesses come about as a result of the stress and tension we experience as part of our modern lives. After an illness, an injury, stress or disease or bodies are often left in a state of imbalance. This means our vital energy pathways may be blocked and this prevents the body from working effectively.


Reiki is a safe, gentle, hands-on healing technique that utilizes universal life-force energy - also known as Chi or Ki. In the West, Reiki is used as a complementary therapy to balance all aspects of a person.

Reiki is a holistic system and a healing tool, used to harmonize body, mind, emotions, and sprit. Reiki restores sense of well-being, promotes relaxation and stress relief. It is non-invasive and it is for you and everyone else who is interested in healing.

Reiki practice releases energetic blockages, tension, and toxins from the body and is deeply restorative. It looks a lot like massage but is not the same. Instead of manipulating the muscles, it fosters healing that encompasses the mind, body and soul.


Reiki is completely safe and has no known negative side-effects. From a scientific point of view, Reiki produces results on an electromagnetic level. 

Reiki Principles - "Rules to Live By"

The Reiki principles are a set of “rules to live by” that the founder of Reiki, Dr Mikao Usui wrote. They are as follows:

  • Just for today, I will live the attitude of gratitude.

  • Just for today, I will not worry.

  • Just for today, I will not anger.

  • Just for today, I will do my work honestly.

  • Just for today, I will show love and respect to every living thing

The guidelines are used for Reiki practitioners to use in their spiritual development but everyone can benefit from them. They are a reminder that we should focus on the “now” of our lives. They also tell us that we can start each day with a clean slate, if the day beforehand didn’t go so well.
