Origins of Reiki

Reiki originated with the ‘Mu’ people (Lemurians) and was shared with the Chinese and Tibetans thousands of years ago. Reiki was rediscovered by Dr.Usui in the late 1800’s during his quest to develop healing abilities. He travelled through Buddhist temples in Japan and studied the Buddhist scriptures in Japanese, Chinese and Sanskrit. He eventually found the principles of Reiki in the Indian Sutras, in Sanskrit.

What is Reiki?

Reiki is translated as ‘Universal Life-Force Energy’.

‘Rei’ is translated as ‘wisdom and knowledge of all the Universe’ or ‘atmosphere of the Divine’.

‘Ki’ is the ‘vital life-force energy that flows through all living things’.

Reiki is a safe, gentle, hands on healing technique to treat physical illness and for balancing, harmonising and healing the entire energetic being of a person. It also aids personal and spiritual growth.


Born in London, Danielle has lived in the hinterland of Byron Bay with her daughter Remy for the last 11 years. She is a musician and writer and loves the conscious creative community she lives in.


“ An hour of blissful healing. I felt like all my aches and pains from the last 20 years had been dissolved. I can’t recommend enough. You will feel reborn and brand new. Truly cosmic”  Tessa (2019)
