Reiki Association South Africa
Our Purpose is to Promote & Enhance Healing
Through the Power of Reiki Energy


Reikissage as a form of bodywork is a wonderful way to work on all layers of the human energy field through gentle touch and nurturing on a physical, emotional, psychological and spiritual level.

Reikissage or Reimassage incorporates the healing art of Reiki (Universal Life force Energy) and massage (stimulation of life force energy) to promote relaxation, enhance vitality and encourage self- healing.

Reiki’s meaning is broken down to Rei- and Ki. Rei- is spiritual power, universal transcendental spirit. Ki is the essence of vital life force energy. Ki exists in everything. It is a subtle energy that flows within and surrounds all life. It is an essential energy for everything that exists in the physical and spiritual worlds. There are a range of different vibrations within the human aura and chakras. These vibrations of Ki help to sustain the physical body, our thoughts and feelings as well as our spiritual experiences. When Ki is out of balance, pockets of negative energy form around the physical body, and within the subtle energies of the aura and chakras. This heavy negative energy cannot flow freely and becomes sluggish and stagnant resulting in dysfunction and illness in the body. It is only by removing this negative energy that healthy Ki is free to flow again and heal the body.

Reiki healers channel the positive Ki to the area of the body, chakra or aura where negative energy is harboured, allowing it to be released from the person’s energy field and replaced by healthy Ki. Along with Reiki, there are many different complementary methods that assist in dissipating negative energy, allowing the natural flow of positive Ki to take place.

The hands on bodywork like massage, shiatsu, chiropractic and reflexology directly assist in the release of negative energies found in muscle spasms, lung congestion, headaches or colon problems, for example. Reiki energy can be used in conjunction with the massage to direct positive vibrations to these problem areas in order to remove the underlying cause of the dis-ease whether it is from emotional, mental or even unresolved past life issues.

Taking the harmonics of Reiki and massage, beautiful energy is made to help release problems on all levels. The Reikissage is instrumental in shifting our lives towards clarity and vibrancy through relaxation and self-understanding.
