For Body and Mind
Reiki is a Japanese technique for stress reduction and
relaxation that also promotes healing. By "laying on hands" is
based on the idea that an unseen "life force energy" flows
through us and is what causes us to be alive. If one's "life force
energy" is low, then we are more likely to get sick or feel stress,
and if it is high, we are more capable of being happy and healthy.
Reiki is a simple, natural and safe method of spiritual healing and self-improvement. It also works in conjunction with
all other medical or therapeutic techniques to relieve side effects and promote recovery.
While Reiki is not a religion, it is still important to live and act in a way that promotes harmony with others. Dr. Mikao
Usui, the founder of the Reiki system of natural healing, recommended that one practice certain simple ethical ideals
to promote peace and harmony, which are nearly universal across all cultures.
The word Reiki comes from Japanese words - Rei which means "God's Wisdom or the Higher Power" and Ki which is
"life force energy". Reiki is:"spiritually guided life force energy."
A treatment feels like a wonderful radiance that flows through and around you. Reiki treats the whole person including
body, emotions, mind and spirit creating many beneficial effects that include relaxation and feelings of peace,

Usui Reiki Treatment for the improvement of body and mind. The
founder , Usui Mikao
In a Reiki session in Munich or in Starnberg, the practitioner asks the recipient to lie down and relax. The practitioner
acts as a channel for Reiki energy to wherever the patient require it. Usually the practitioner moves the hands close to
or on various parts of the recipient's body. Some patients report feeling various subjective sensations: heat, tingling,
cold, pressure, etc. Practitioners of Reiki attribute these sensations to Reiki energy filling energetic deficiencies in the
body and aura of the recipient, repairing and opening their energy channels (meridians or nadis), pulling out
"negativity," and dissolving the blockages of "stale" energy.
If the recipient needs it and is ready to heal, the Reiki energy will go where it needs to for healing. But if, on the other
hand, the intended recipient does not accept the energy on some level, the energy will not be absorbed.
