At Hamilton Reiki, the Usui Method of Natural Healing is utilised and taught by an experienced, registered, insured Reiki Master dedicated to Reiki and its application. Terryl, Hamilton Reiki's primary practitioner, considers Reiki a way of life and a healing modality. She practises daily meditation rituals and adheres to the founding pillars and precepts of Reiki. 


For those seeking a gentle form of treatment, Reiki works on both physical and emotional issues. Consider this ancient and timeless therapy if you are yearning for energetic assistance or 'enhancement'.  Regardless of how you perceive the phenomenon of Reiki, it is undoubtedly one of the simplest and complete relaxation methods available to receive or self-administer. 


The spiritual pathway includes no strict dogma or assertions.  The practices of Reiki enable us to access our Nervous System in such a way as to engage the immune system, feel open and connected, and release perceived stress response. It is a wellness system that is a complete spiritual pathway, and can be practiced regardless of religious creed or denomination.


Thus, Reiki allows for the body's innate self-healing mechanisms to do what they are naturally designed to do.  Heal Thyself.  ​Hamilton Reiki is located in the Southern Grampians region of Victoria. Accommodation options are available for those travelling to the region.

Reiki Treatments may be booked online (Home Page - In Person Services Section - scroll down).

What is Reiki?

Reiki ('ray-key') is a natural therapy that increases energy and promotes healing, relaxation and meditation.  A Japanese word, Reiki can be divided into two parts;

Rei can be loosely translated into English to mean spirit, and Ki to mean force.  In the West, we may refer to this phenomenon as Universal Life Energy, or the energy found in all things.

Reiki works on both physical and emotional issues, revitalising and harmonising the energy systems, and clearing any energetic blockages.  It is applied through non-invasive and gentle touch.  

Reiki was founded (or perhaps more accurately 're-discovered') by Mikao Usui (1856-1926), a Tendai Buddhist Monk who saw Reiki first as a path to enlightenment and a way of life, and secondly, as a healing modality.

Reiki is considered to be a complementary therapy, and is not to be used to replace conventional medical treatments, rather, it is used to assist and enhance wellbeing and healing.  It is currently used across the world in private practices, hospitals, nursing homes, palliative care hospices, wellness centres and community service establishments.
Common experiences for clients who receive Reiki include feelings of peacefulness and connectedness, relaxation, and an increase in energy.  No harm can come from the application of Reiki as it works to rebalance, realign and boost an individual's well being.

Why LEARN REIKI & Course Details

Originally, the teachings of Reiki were focused on spiritual development and self-betterment, rather than as a treatment system. The founder of Reiki, Mikao Usui, believed that the practice of Reiki was a pathway to enlightenment and a means of achieving inner peace and harmony. Usui taught that by connecting with the universal life force energy, individuals could tap into their own innate healing abilities and achieve a greater sense of self-awareness and spiritual growth. With simple and timeless meditation techniques, and very simple precepts, the practice enables one to develop self-awareness and mindfulness, and to to engage with life from a connected perspective.  


Over time, the practice of Reiki has evolved to include a range of treatment applications, but the traditional teachings of Reiki remain focused on spiritual development and self-improvement. Today, many individuals continue to practice Reiki as a means of achieving greater self-awareness, inner peace, and spiritual growth, and complete the degrees purely for as a spiritual pathway, rather than to treat others.

The courses at Hamilton Reiki are VERY small and intimate, giving every particpant direct access to the teacher, and support is ongoing. The courses will run with a minimum of 2 particpants, and a maximum of 4.
