Reiki (ray-key) describes a system of natural healing that was founded by Mikao Usui in the early 20th century in Japan. Although Usui was a Buddhist monk Reiki is a tradition that is secular and embraces all belief systems. In keeping with eastern philosophies, the world view is one of non-separation to nature and the elements. Energy is simply the basis of all life. Reiki is increasingly used in modern healthcare alongside conventional or complementary treatments. A Reiki treatment lasts an average of 45 minutes and involves a gentle therapeutic touch which is non manipulative during which the client remains fully clothed. It is a holistic treatment where the whole person is treated rather than specific areas and can be administered anywhere including the workplace. Reiki practitioners are not trained to diagnose or interpret. Reiki is a gentle energetic treatment that has never been found to cause harm and is therefore safe in pregnancy. Children and animals are extremely receptive. It can also be a helpful resource at emotionally difficult times in our lives or in dealing with long-term conditions or with the dying. There is a growing body of clinical researchthat demonstrates that Reiki can be of benefit in healthcare.
‘Reiki is one of the leading safe Energy Medicine approaches. The study summaries provided by the Center for Reiki Research are the best source for information on Reiki Research.’

Each person experiences Reiki differently but people often report:-
- deep relaxation
- increased sense of balance and well being
- feeling more grounded during physical and emotional recovery
- Reduced stress
- Improved sleep and healing
The practice is taught by Reiki masters / teachers who have trained to attune others. There are 3 levels of attunement, each requiring a day and a half and it can easily be learned by anyone. At Compassion Field we have benefited greatly from Reiki in our own lives and wish to promote the use of Reiki for individual recovery and also within healthcare systems.
