Brera Therapies - Reiki

"Just for today, do not anger 
Do not worry and be filled with gratitude"
Reiki is a healing practice founded by the 19th century Japanese Tendai Buddhist monk Mikao Usui. Its philosophical roots are found in the practice of Shinto, for which a non-religious yet spiritual belief sees energy permeating all living and non-living things in a form of ancient animism. In the western world is considered part of bio-field therapies, like Qui-gong and Therapeutic Touch. 

Reiki treats the person as a whole: body, emotions, mind and spirit, thus creating many beneficial effects which include deep relaxation and a feelings of peace, security and overall wellbeing. The Reiki practitioner acts as a channel for the ‘life force energy’ available in the Universe to enter the recipient body’s energetic field, promoting the process of healing from within.

Reiki is spiritual in nature, but it is not a religion. Mikao Usui recommended the daily practice of certain simple ethical ideals to promote peace and harmony and added the Five Principles of Reiki, inspired by the Meiji emperor of Japan whom he admired, to the practice of healing: 
The secret art of inviting happiness 
The miraculous medicine of all diseases 
Just for today, do not anger 
Do not worry and be filled with gratitude 
Devote yourself to your work. Be kind to people. 
Every morning and evening, join your hands in prayer. 
Pray these words to your heart 
and chant these words with your mouth
