The Origins of Reiki
The Traditional Reiki Story begins in the 1800’s. However Reiki was ancient even then.
In the nineteenth century a Japanese man, Dr Mikao Usui was fascinated by the Buddha and in particular in his ability to heal after his enlightenment. He began a quest to discover the secret so that he might help others. He traveled widely studying at Buddhist temple’s, he learnt Chinese and Sanskrit in order to study ancient texts. Eventually he discovered a formula in the Indian sutras for contacting a higher power that could bestow healing.
What is Reiki?
A Reiki session is a wonderful & gentle way of relaxing, reducing the tension in your body & increasing your energy levels.
So how does the Reiki energy work?
Universal Energy (Reiki) is transferred from the practitioner to the client through exchange of Energy/heat/Chi via the hands. The practitioner places their hands on & above specific parts of the client's body to exchange this Energy.
The the client's body then uses this Energy to help facilitate self -healing. This is done on a Sub-Conscious level and you may not be aware of it taking place.

"I LOVE Reiki! - WOW I do not know anywhere else that I can go and be so chilled and simulated at the same time! - I go and see Kerry for some Reiki feeling really tired, anxious and low on energy. Kerry works her magic and I leave feeling relaxed, calm and energised. I used to find daily life a struggle and not know how I was going to get through the day. Now once a month I have a Reiki session, I feel relaxed and invogorated and able to cope with my day to day life without struggling. If you are finding it hard to get through your day, give Reiki a go - I love it, so will you!"

"When I first saw Kerry - I was going to have a hand operation, as the use in my left hand was really limited. Kerry did some Reiki on my hand and it improved! - I have no idea what she did, but I no longer needed to have the operation."

"I first met Kerry 4 years ago at our local kindergarten shared by our children at the time. I began talking with Kerry initially about Kinesiology, as my son had a lot learning difficulties, speech and behavior issues. It was through this that I then began to get to know Kerry and then talk about my own personal problems, mainly my shoulders.
I played a lot of sports and did a lot of swimming in my younger years and was now unable to move my arms past waist height. I had been to countless doctors and specialists, spent hundreds of dollars (possibly more) for them to tell me that it was possibly something that I just had to live with, and take anti-inflammatory for the rest of my life when the pain got really bad. This was when I started seeing Kerry for Reiki.
After the first session, I could lift my arms up above my head, and once again carry my baby daughter without pain. I was over the moon, (total disbelief actually). This lasted for almost a week, then I started getting stiff again, I went back to see Kerry the following week and again the same result only better, I saw her again a week after that and I have not had any problems with my shoulders since.
I now see Kerry every fortnight for other things, and just to RELAX, it’s hard work being a mum!
I believe so much in the miracle of Reiki, that I have now studied both Reiki 1 and 2 with Kerry so that I too can pass Reiki onto whom ever wants / needs it.
If you are in any doubt- just do it any way, to do nothing, will change nothing."
