Traditional Reiki Healing


Welcome to Traditional Reiki Healing, my name is Luke and I am a Reiki master & teacher. I specialize in a traditional form of energetic healing method called Usui Reiki Ryoho which translates to (Usui spiritual energy healing method).

Since early 2000 I started to learn and practice Reiki and experienced its healing benefits, on a very deep level, mentally, physically and spiritually. After 17 years of practice and feeling and experiencing the amazing benefits of Reiki, I have decided it is time to teach and help others heal their body and mind with this powerful energetic healing system.

I am based in the gold coast but also offer a mobile service to cater for everyone. Traditional Reiki healing treatments are individually tailored and focused to empower you on your healing journey.

What is Reiki?

Reiki is a energetic healing art with its roots in Japanese origin. The word Reiki comes from the Japanese word (Rei) which means “Universal Life” and (Ki) which means “Energy”. Reiki is not affiliated with any particular religion or religious practice. It is not massage nor is it based on belief or suggestion. It is a subtle and effective form of energy work using spiritually guided life force energy.

Reiki is the life energy that flows through all living things. Reiki Practitioners understand that everyone has the ability to connect with their own healing energy and use it to strengthen energy in themselves and help others. It is believed that a person’s “ki” or energy should be strong and free-flowing. When this is true a person’s body and mind is in a positive state of health. When the energy becomes weak or blocked it could lead to symptoms of physical or emotional imbalance.

A Reiki session can help ease tension and stress and can help support the body to facilitate an environment for healing on all levels – physical, mental, and emotional.

The History of Reiki

Dr. Mikao Usui is who most Reiki Practitioners consider being the “Father” of Reiki. It was his re-discovery of this Energy that brought forth a forgotten Healing Art Form that may have very well remained lost if not for his dedication to becoming Spiritually Enlightened.

Born on the 15th of August, 1865, in the village of ‘Taniai-mura’ in in the Yamagata district of Gifu, Japan, Mikao held many job positions before embarking on the quest to find his life’s meaning. It is speculated that because of his education and business positions that he held before discovering Reiki, that Usui came from a wealthy family. However, it seems that no-one knows for sure.

It is said that the Gift of Reiki was imparted to Usui Sensei by God, or by a Universal Intelligence.

Long before discovering Reiki, a young Usui had studied Kiko, the Japanese version of Qi Gong, but because he had to build up his own energy only to have it depleted when giving treatments, he wondered if there was a way to do healing without having to lose his own energy.

It was in March of 1922, while on a 21 day fast he had taken upon Mt. Kurama, Japan, that Reiki was given to him. On the 21st day, Usui described having the feeling of “Reiki” over the top of his head, or crown chakra. It is said that Usui ran down the mountain in excitement, stubbed his toe, placed his hand over it – like anybody would, and a great warmth came from his hands and healed his injury. This healing was not like anything he had experienced and knew that it had to be shared.

No one knows exactly why Usui went to meditate upon Mt. Kurama, but evidence suggests that it was because he felt his life was failing and as an avid Spiritual seeker, he wanted to meditate on his life’s purpose.

He moved to Tokyo in 1922 and opened a clinic to begin treating others. At the time of his discovery, there was a great deal of poverty and depression in Japan, due to the on-going war. When the Kanto earthquake hit in 1923, more than 140,000 people died and over half of the houses and buildings were destroyed. There were many people that were left homeless, sick, and grieving.

It is said that he felt a great deal of compassion to help the people and that he would go out every morning to heal the wounded and sick. It was a great amount of work, so he began to teach others Reiki in order to help with the devastation.

In 1925 the demand for Reiki had become so great that he opened a bigger clinic in Nakano, outside of Tokyo Japan, and his reputation as a healer would spread through-out his country. He began to travel throughout Japan to teach others about Reiki. Usui had trained over 2000 students in these travels, but sadly, while travelling to Fukuyama, he suffered a stroke. He died March 9, 1926.

Before his death, Usui was given the Kun San To award from the Japanese Government for his dedication to helping the people of Japan.

Description of a typical treatment

A treatment is usually 60 to 90 minutes long. A discussion will usually take place during an initial session with a Reiki Practitioner. They will describe the session to the client, give the client an opportunity to discuss any particular problems or issues they are experiencing and ask them what they are hoping to achieve from their treatment. For the actual treatment, the client will rest comfortably on a massage table on their back with their shoes removed. Reiki can be performed with the client sitting comfortably in a chair as well.

Unlike massage therapy, no articles of clothing are removed and a client is always fully clothed; loose, comfortable clothing is suggested. A treatment can either be hands-on, where a Practitioner will apply a light touch during the session, or hands-off where they will hold their hands slightly above your body. If a client prefers not to be touched they can indicate this to the practitioner before they begin.

The treatment will then proceed with the Reiki Practitioner moving through specific standard Reiki hand positions beginning at the person’s head or feet. A recipient of Reiki might feel a warming sensation or a tingling during the session or nothing at all but sheer relaxation. The session should be very pleasant, relaxing and invigorating.

What is Reiki used to Treat?

Reiki is a great tool for stress reduction and relaxation. Many people use Reiki for wellness. Reiki is not a cure for a disease or illness, but it may assist the body in creating an environment to facilitate healing. Reiki is a great tool to use as a complement to traditional medicine and is practiced in many hospitals and medical care settings.

Many times a client, after experiencing Reiki treatments, will wish to learn Reiki to work with this energy themselves by taking a Reiki I course. This can be beneficial as they may then use this stress reduction and relaxation tool anytime they wish when the cost would prohibit it otherwise.
