Just for today:
I will not anger
I will not worry
I will do my work honestly
I will be kind to all living things
I will give thanks for my many blessings

USUI SHIKI RYOHO
It is common knowledge that the universe is made up of energy and that it flows through all living things which correlates to our health and well-being. This was known to indigenous peoples in many cultures since ancient times. The existence of this "life force energy" has been verified by scientific experiments, and medical doctors are considering the role it plays in the functioning of the immune system and the healing process. For more information, see healing research.
REI - means " universal" and refers also to the spiritual dimension of the soul.
KI - means the vital life force energy which flows through all that is alive.
The origin of Reiki can be traced back to Ancient Tibet, thousands of years ago, and was rediscovered in the late 1800's in Japan. The practitioner acts as a channel through which the healing energy flows. This energy fills the practitioner's body first and then flows out through the practitioner's hands into the individual who is receiving the healing. Reiki does not conflict with other healthcare, but enhances its results. It does not interfere with traditional medical treatment, but facilitates benefits. Reiki speeds the healing process, and provides a source of restoring energy while one is ill, under medical treatment, or in recovery. The treatment of Reiki is beneficial to all who desire to heal themselves. It dissolves any blockages or negative energies that are impeding your health and with this, it brings a feeling of relaxation and peace.

"Suffering from back pain and some sport related issues, as well as stress, I went to Gisele for Reiki. Knowing her for several years, I can say she is really passionate about the healing effect of Reiki. It is such a nice experience to get some release from stress and pain. I would highly recommend Gisele as I consider her a model Reiki practitioner."
