What is Reiki?
Pronounced ‘ray-key’, it simply means universal life-force energy. The word “Reiki” is derived from the Japanese words – Rei which means “Universal” and Ki which is “life force energy”.
Reiki is a Japanese technique for stress reduction and relaxation that also promotes healing. It is administered by "laying on hands" and is based on the idea that an unseen "life force energy" flows through us because of which we are alive. To simply put, Reiki is a natural and safe energy healing method that works through the channelling of energy from the universe into the body. A balanced energy flowing through the therapist brings about healing in the recipient. The universal healing energy of Reiki harmonizes your physical, emotional, mental, and spiritual bodies and activates your innate healing resources, supporting the healing of acute and chronic disease as well as anxiety, fatigue, depression, stress, addictions and other symptoms of imbalance. Other reported benefits include deep relaxation, stress reduction, clearing of addictive patterns, emotional stability and better self-esteem.
Mahima’s Reiki journey began in 2001. She has multiple certifications under different accomplished Reiki masters/teachers from India, Singapore and UK. Mahima has mastered the art of Reiki healing over the years and practises Usui and Karuna Reiki with the aim of making a difference to the daily lives of people in the need of healing.
Mahima has a PhD in Public Administration, and is currently full time devoted to Reiki healing practices.
By nature, Mahima has a compassionate and pleasing personality and comes across as a calm and non-judgemental healer.
Throughout the history of mankind, healing methods have always existed, which were based on the transfer of Universal life energy -the same energy that brings forth all life in the universe and nourishes it. Thousands of years ago, the Tibetans already possessed a deep understanding of the nature of spirit, energy and matter and used this knowledge to heal their bodies, harmonize their souls and lead their spirit to an experience of unity.
Years later, Dr Mikao Usui from Japan, rediscovered a method of healing which is not only the most simple and natural healing method we know of, but it is also the most effective way of transferring this Universal Life Energy.
It has shown over the past few years that this method of healing or Reiki is beneficial for several illnesses and promotes health and wellbeing in the human body. It also works in conjunction with all other medical or therapeutic techniques to relieve side effects and promote recovery.
How does Reiki work?
This energy is an intelligent force, which both helps you to release heavy vibrations (usually in the form of emotions such as stress, grief, anger etc) from your body so you feel lighter, then gives you a boost of positive energy. It can speed up recovery that may be needed in the physical body if we are sick, it can support us in our minds and emotions so that we may feel stronger to cope with life and it can comfort us spiritually by giving us a feeling of oneness or connectedness, when we feel alone. Reiki is therapeutic as it induces a state of relaxation which is when the body heals itself most efficiently. Everyone can benefit from Reiki because we are all beings made of energy.
- The first steps begin with releasing stress, removing energy blockages and getting back to your childlike essence.
- Peeling back subconscious layers of stagnation, allowing forgiveness to flow from you heart.
- This exploration will open the door and lead you on a personal spiritual journey.
What happens during a Reiki session?
During a session, you will lie fully clothed on a bed, whilst a practitioner will place hands above or on you in various positions. Body scanning involves the practice of the healer using their Reiki skills to effectively scan the person’s seven chakras, the entire body and their energies. This helps the practitioner to focus on the right areas, right from the very beginning, and to identify the root causes to those energy imbalances, or blockages as they are commonly referred to. Once blockages and imbalances have been identified, Chakra rebalancing and healing takes place. This stage involves focusing on the chakra blockages. The Reiki energy is then applied through the hands or by hovering hands over the person.
Distance Healing - Distance reiki healing is technique within the system of reiki that enables reiki healing beyond the limitations of time and space. In other words it is a way reiki healing is done without the recipient being in the same location as the healer. Distance healing can be done across Long distances. This is just as effective as a hands-on reiki treatment.
Benefits of Reiki
1. Reiki helps create Harmony & Balance in your body and energy systems. This enhances the body’s natural healing ability whilst energising and promoting overall wellness. Reiki works directly on restoring balance on all levels and works directly on the problem and condition instead of just masking or relieving symptoms. Breathing deeper and easier is one of the first things to happen during healing.
2. Reiki creates deep relaxation and helps the body release stress and tension. What most people enjoy about a reiki treatment is that they feel calm, peaceful and relaxed following a session.Reiki brings about self-awareness and provides a space to go within yourself and listen to your own body.
3. Reiki dissolves energy blocks and promotes a natural balance between mind, body and spirit. Regular Reiki treatments can bring about a calmer and more peaceful state of being, in which a person is better able to cope with everyday stress. This mental balance also enhances learning, memory and mental clarity. Reiki can heal mental/emotional wounds and can help alleviate mood swings, fear, frustration and even anger. Reiki can also strengthen and heal personal relationships.
4. Reiki assists the body in cleansing itself from toxins and supports the immune system. During Reiki the body is lead into the parasympathetic mode of rest and digest allowing the body to relax from the constant fight and flight response. This leads to a relaxed state of both mind and body.
5. Reiki provides clarity of mind and improves focus. Reiki can support you in staying centred in the present moment rather than getting caught up in regrets about the past or anxieties about the future. It can strengthen your ability to accept and work with the way events are unfolding even when they don’t follow your desires or timetable. You begin to react to situations, people and yourself in a supportive way rather than acting out of habit.
6. The number one outcome of receiving a Reiki session is relaxation. When we’re relaxed, we sleep better, our bodies heal better, we think more clearly, and we relate to each other more genuinely. Often clients will experience deep relaxation during their Reiki session and sometimes a deep sleep during the session as well.
7. Reiki is a wonderful compliment to conventional medical treatment and other therapies. Reiki addresses the body as a whole, rather than targeting individual symptoms. It can create profound, often subtle shifts from deep within your own being. It may even inspire a change in attitude or belief about your situation. Suddenly, you may see your condition from a fresh perspective and will be able to deal with it in a more positive way. Or it might direct you to the right kind of action needed which is guided from within.
8. Reiki is safe to use if you have medical conditions such as epilepsy, diabetes or heart conditions. You may receive Reiki treatments if you are undergoing chemotherapy. Pregnant woman can have Reiki treatments to support them through all stages of the pregnancy. Reiki is for everyone!
What to expect
Every session is different as what needs to happen is always different. Sometimes the sessions will be relatively peaceful with guided meditation, mindful breathing and visualisation.
Other times we may find ourselves in a past life, releasing an old childhood memory. Part of the fun is that no healing is ever the same. Reiki can charge our energy field with positive energy, shorten healing times, balance energies and help create positivity.
When your life is aligned to your inner truth you experience flow and peace. It's not always easy to see why or how you are out of alignment. Sometimes it is helpful to have a different perspective along the way.

Seeing my child cry in fits of despair to falling ...peacefully asleep in my arms as soon as healing comes his way.
It’s a complete blessing to have her around us..
I had never tried Reiki before. I decided to try Reiki with Mahima for the day to day emotional turmoil, fatigue, lack of clarity, and stress related gastritis, headaches etc. When I started Reiki with Mahima, I didn’t know what to... expect- was not sure how it will help me. Mahima explained in detail the science behind Reiki, how the positive energy from the universe will help me. The first session made me sleep off and I did experience immense relaxation. The entire experience, the aura everything was extremely calming and meditative. After a few sessions, I started to feel lighter, happier, less stressed and slowly life felt less complicated. I reacted less to situations as compared to before and started worrying less. I looked forward to each and every session. There has been a great improvement in my physical and emotional health with Reiki as I understand it works on the root cause of problems which is stress. Something that makes Mahima stand out as a healer is her calm and positive personality, passion and dedication to Reiki and her professionalism. I would highly recommend Mahima as a Reiki master and I thank her from the bottom of my heart for introducing me to this experience.
Mahima’s Reiki therapy helped me get through an attack of shingles last year with none of the debilitating pain and discomfort it is usually associated with. Not only was I able to stop pain medication despite the doctor insisting I would need it, I also recovered very quickly. I’ll always remain grateful to her.
I requested a Reiki intervention from Mahima when I was sick with fever and a particularly bad bout of viral. As we all know , there are really no meds for viral fever. A distance healing session made an immense difference to me and I was... up on my feet the very next day. Since then, I’ve reached out to her on many occasions for reiki healing and have seen for myself the positive difference reiki can make to almost every situation - right from mending relationships to increasing low energy levels to recovery from illness . I would recommend her healing touch to anyone who needs help in any life situation.
Mahima is a beautiful soul and a gifted nurturer. I have reached out to her couple times for distant healing. She is always willing to listen to my issues and available to send healing whenever requested. ...I always feel a sense of calm and peace after the session and somewhere deep inside my heart I know that it’ll work for me. Once I had severe backache spreading up to my legs, and was not able to move around much. After two sessions with Mahima, I was not only feeling much better but was able to resume my daily walks.In another instance my husband was down with viral infection and I requested Mahima to do his healing. He felt relief with the first healing itself and was able to recover faster. I have immense faith in Reiki and in Mahima as a master healer! I wish her success and happiness in her journey ahead!
Mahima is great as a person and healer. She has a unique connection with all her patients. Receiving reiki from Mahima helped my daughter immensely by reducing pain post knee surgery as well as facilitating recovery. ... It also helped her stay grounded during stressful periods at university by helping maintain overall well-being. Mahima also sent reiki to my pet dog who has severe pain in his hind leg which would cause him to limp. Through receiving reiki he gradually starting putting weight on his leg again and is evidently in less pain. Even after she officially stopped sending healing to my dog, she knows when he is in pain and requires her support. The past year has been difficult for me with my daughter and pet and Mahima has been there always as a friend to me and healer to both of them.
Mahima has a natural flair for healing. With her calm composure, non judgemental nature and positive aura she manages to soothe everyone who interact with her. Wish her all the best in her healing journey.
