What is Reiki?
Reiki is a form of therapy that uses simple hands-on and visualization techniques, with the goal of improving the flow of life energy in a person. Reiki claims to provide many of the same benefits as traditional massage therapy, such as reducing stress, stimulating the immune system, increasing energy, and relieving the pain and symptoms of health conditions. Practitioners have reported success in helping patients with acute and chronic illnesses, from asthma and arthritis to trauma and recovery from surgery. Reiki can been used by doctors, nurses, and other health professionals to bring touch and deeper caring into their healing practices.
Why a Tibetan Monk?
Reiki was re-discovered in the late 1800’s by a Japanese Buddhist monk named Mikao Usui. This lineage was passed down over the years and received by Venerable Namgyel, a Tibetan Buddhist monk who has been teaching Reiki for 25 years. He brings together his practice of Buddhism with the practice of Reiki, wanting to help and benefit others.
