Reiki (ray-key) is universal life energy. This energy is around us and within us. Reiki is a system that originates from Japan and was brought to British Columbia in the 1970's by Hawayo Takata. Mrs. Takata taught my Reiki Master Wanja Twan in 1978-79. Reiki is simple as only your hands are required to practise. The technique is gentle yet powerful. The energy flows to wherever it is needed in the body, stress is released and there is a profound feeling of well-being for the recipient as well as the practitioner. Reiki can be learned by anyone, including children. After attending the first workshop, you can use Reiki to treat yourself, your family, friends and pets. Reiki promotes balance to heal the causes of disease and pain while reinforcing the body's ability to heal itself. It supports and enhances medical treatments and can be safely used by medical and holistic health professionals.
