Many ancient cultures embraced the belief that life energy flows through the body, deeply affecting our entire being. Current research strongly suggests that energy does extend throughout and beyond the physical body, and that disruptions or imbalances in its flow correlate to physical, mental and emotional illness. The healing art of Reiki addresses these imbalances to support your good health and well being.
What a Reiki Treatments Can Mean for You
Reiki is a loving way of healing. Reiki is a beautiful tool for treatment of body and soul.
On a physical level: To ease the discomfort of pain and disease, to lighten the side-effect of certain more radical therapies.
Emotional and mental: Many people use Reiki to soften the daily pressure, get rid of stress and handle their emotions and feelings in a more mature and natural way.
Reiki promotes restful sleep, healing and relaxation. Relaxation in itself promotes a host of benefits for the mind and body including a heightened sense of well-being, release of painful muscle tension, and relief from anxiety and depression. In addition, relaxation has been shown to help restore immune function and improve circulation, enhancing healing through the body.
Spiritual: Although Reiki is not a religion, for many people is the way to give expression to their inner need for personal and spiritual growth, and a way to give their live direction, and experience a loving way of being connected to each other.
Nayda Hands of Light Reiki will bring to you the benefits of a Reiki treatment.

What is Reiki?
Reiki is a Japanese word meaning universal life energy. It is a gentle method of hands-on treatment that taps into the energy referred to as ki in Japan, chi in China and prana in India.
Reiki is not massage, hypnosis or a tool for diagnosis. A Reiki treatment addresses chronic and acute conditions, gently and powerfully promoting balance among all the body systems.
To receive Reiki treatment the recipient lies on a table fully clothed, so wear comfortable clothing. The Reiki healing energy is so adaptable that you can receive it in almost any setting, in a chair or hospital bed, and through casts and bandages.
Reiki healing sessions can last from half an hour to one hour or more.
Reiki is not a religion. It has no dogma, and there is nothing you have to believe in order to receive a Reiki healing treatment.
Reiki and Medicine
Reiki is a simple, natural and safe method of healing. It also works in conjuction with all other medical or therapeutic techniques to relieve side effects and promote recovery.
Used by a growing number of hospitals all over the world, Reiki healing treatments complement medical treatment, psychological counseling and massage therapy. Reiki is appropriate for patients in any state of health.
Reiki is gentle enough to offer support and reduce the discomfort of pregnant women and can help ease the pain of childbirth.
Many hospitals have Reiki healing sessions available to a range of patients, including those with cancer or recovering from surgery.
Reiki treatment is especially appreciated in hospice care due to its ability to alliviate pain and anxiety for both patients and family members.
A Brief History of Reiki
The Usui System of Natural Healing (Reiki) was discovered by Mikao Usui. He was born in 1865 in the village of Taniai, Japan. He was a wise man, a spiritual teacher, living in Kyoto. Mikao Usui was an intellectual and a man of many interests.
One day a student asked a simple question about the ability of the human race to heal with the hands...This innocent question changed the live of Mikao Usui. He started his quest for the secret of hands-on-healing.
After many years of study, research and meditation he found a method of healing touch, but it was obscure to him and he decided to retire to Mount Kurayama near Kyoto and stay there for twenty one days meditating. At the end of the twenty one days he had a revelation and everything became clear. He descended from Mount Kurayama and established the Usui System of Natural Healing (Usui Shiki Ryoho) in Kyoto. He taught Reiki and gave Reiki treatments to hundreds of people.
Mikao Usui trained several people as Reiki Masters, including Chujiro Hayashi, an officer in Japan's Naval Reserve, who was also a Medical Doctor. Dr. Hayashi opened his own practice which lasted until 1941. Dr Hayashi treated Hawayo Takata, a young widow from Hawai, who had travelled to Japan looking for a cure for her ailments. After several Reiki treatments she was healed. Hawayo wanted to learn Reiki and asked Dr. Hayashi to teach her. At first he did not want to do it, but he finally accepted and Hawayo stayed in Japan to learn it. She became the first american to practice Reiki. When she returned to Hawai she offered Reiki treaments to many people and practiced there for several years.
Hawayo Takata brought Reiki to the USA main land. She died in late 1980 after initiating twenty two masters.
Since then Reiki had been spread all over the world.
There are 3 Reiki levels. Each level leads to a certain degree of knowledge and Reiki-power.
The 1st level is complete and gives the student the ability to treat both the Self and others, and start a process of inner healing and growth.
The 2nd level is for the student who wants to be a bigger channel of this energy and has a desire to explore the inner self on a deeper level. It brings the ability to send Reiki at a distance, it is more intense and ideal to work on the mental and spiritual levels.
The last level is the Reiki Master level. That is the teacher level and gives someone the power to teach and initiate others in Reiki.
At Nayda Hands of Light Reiki I teach Reiki in the Traditional way, which was the way Hawayo Takata taught.
