Demystifying Reiki: The Gentle Power of Healing

In the vast landscape of holistic healing, there exists a therapy as gentle as it is powerful, as subtle as it is transformative—Reiki. Soft in touch yet profound in impact, Reiki holds a healing power that is universally applicable and beneficial.

In the heart of 2016, my adventurous spirit led me to a secluded island in Thailand, a serendipitous journey that introduced me to the transformative power of Reiki Healing. Initially sceptical and unaware of its profound benefits, I was reluctantly introduced to Reiki by a friend. This encounter, however, marked the beginning of a new passion and path towards wellness and inner peace. My journey into Reiki not only sparked a deep personal transformation but also culminated in my becoming a certified Reiki practitioner, devoted to spreading the healing and serenity it offers.

City life steered me away from practicing Reiki regularly but a spark in 2020 re-ignited my curiosity and my connection to Reiki. Fatefully, eight years later, the same mystical island and my revered Reiki Master beckoned me once more. This time, armed with years of energy work, meditation, and a deeper understanding of my inner self, I delved back into Reiki. The transition felt like a homecoming, a natural continuation of my spiritual journey. So here I am, graduating again in Reiki L1 & L2 on the same island, with the same Master.

In my first few sessions back to practising Reiki, I received a confirmation that I was on the right path. Here are a few testimonials...

Testimonials: A Testament to Transformation

"My journey with Reiki under Anysa's guidance was nothing short of miraculous. For months, I battled irritable bowel syndrome, a condition that significantly affected my quality of life. However, a few sessions with Anysa led to an unexpected and profound relief. Ten days have passed, and I am still symptom-free. Anysa's hands are truly gifted, and I am eternally grateful for the new lease on life her Reiki sessions have given me." – Maureen

"Anysa embodies the essence of healing. Her authenticity and warmth made me feel instantly at ease, creating a space where profound healing began. Through her Reiki sessions, I released an energetic wound that had plagued me across lifetimes. The insights gained were invaluable and transformative. Anysa's gift is rare, making her sessions not just healing but life-changing." – Yael


The term "Reiki" itself emerges from two Japanese words: 'Rei' meaning "universal, Essence of Spirit“, and 'Ki' meaning "energy, life force“. Combined, they encapsulate the essence of Reiki—channelling universal life energy to promote healing and balance.

Reiki is an ancient way to activate and harmonise our natural life energy. It was re-discovered by Dr. Mikao Usui from Japan. The practice has been handed down through the generations and is formally known as the Usui System of Reiki Healing.

The core of Reiki healing lies in its simplicity and non-invasive nature. The practitioner, trained to channel the all-encompassing universal life energy, simply places their hands lightly on or over the body of the recipient. It's a therapeutic touch that affects the physical, emotional, and spiritual dimensions of a person. Reiki practitioners do not heal other people- they pass on Reiki to assist them in fully activating their own healing ability.

While the idea of healing through energy might seem esoteric, Reiki works on a fundamental belief that we all can understand—life is energy. When this energy flow inside us is blocked or unbalanced, it can resultantly manifest as physical, mental, or emotional malaise.

Reiki seeks to restore this balance. The hands of the practitioner act as a conduit for the universal life energy, subtly re-calibrating the energy within and removing blockages. The recipient often feels a warm sensation, profound relaxation, and/or a general sense of well-being. Reiki can be experienced in person sessions or also through distance healing.

Whether you find your curiosity piqued or simply seek a holistic approach to life, Reiki presents a personalised path to tranquillity and balance. The simple beauty of Reiki lies in its universal applicability, highlighting the link between our individual energy and the universal life force.

Give Reiki a chance, and you may just find it's the gentle touch you didn't know your life was missing—a soft whisper of balance, peace, and well-being in the bustle of everyday life.

Why Reiki? The Multifaceted Benefits of Universal Energy Healing

Reiki’s impact goes beyond addressing physical discomfort. It promotes mental clarity, emotional stability, and spiritual growth. The therapy encourages self-awareness, permitting individuals to connect intimately with their own energy, promoting self-healing and growth.

Advocates of Reiki often report feeling calmer, less stressed, and more in tune with themselves following a session. It's almost as if the cumulative noise of ailments and distress is dialled down, leaving in its wake a quiet space of tranquillity.Reiki transcends the conventional boundaries of healing, offering relief and balance on multiple levels:

Physical wellness: It's not uncommon for recipients to report significant relief from chronic ailments and pains.
Mental clarity: Sessions often lead to profound relaxation, helping clear the mental fog and stress that daily life accumulates.
Emotional stability: Reiki can be a powerful tool in managing emotions, and aiding in overcoming anxiety, depression, and emotional distress.
Spiritual growth: By fostering a deeper connection with one's inner self, Reiki paves the way for spiritual enlightenment and self-discovery

Personal experience confirming the power of Reiki:
A Distance Reiki Healing Experience with a Friend in Scotland. Pursuing advanced studies in Reiki led me back to my Reiki Master Paula to polish my skills. To my delight, I was invited to practice a distant healing session for a friend who had willingly consented to benefit from Reiki healing.

Given nothing more than a name and location, I was tasked to channel healing energy across the miles. The most remarkable moment in this session was the vision of a man rising and walking again, the joy on his face palpable as he used his own legs. All the while, I focused intensely on visualizing this individual in good health, being able to walk freely again. The consistent inner echo I could hear throughout was a voice repeating- "All I want to do is to walk again."

Upon completion of the session, I shared with my Reiki Master the weird experience telling her I struggled to focus on balancing the energy centres as this experience took up all my time. My master confirmed that her friend in Scotland had indeed been grappling with leg mobility issues due to Type 2 Diabetes.

This experience confirmed to me the unfathomable depth of Reiki healing, and its ability to know precisely where to direct its healing energy - even when I have no idea. The resonance of this experience left me with a profound understanding of the power of our intentions and the universal life energy they can guide. It is an experience that keeps me anchored in my practice and inspires me to transcend the limits of space in healing.

Incorporate Reiki into your life and experience the profound balance and tranquillity it brings. Discover the transformative power of holistic healing and start your journey towards a healthier, more harmonious life today.
