What is Reiki?

 

Reiki (pronounced Ray-Key) is a Japanese technique based on the idea that an unseen “life force energy” flows through us and is what causes us to be alive.  If one’s “life force energy” is low, then we are more likely to get sick or feel stress, and if it is high, we are more capable of being happy and healthy.  It is a simple, natural and safe method of healing, relaxation and stress reduction.
 
Reiki is  a holistic therapy used for relaxation and stress reduction which triggers the bodies natural healing abilities and improves and maintains oneself through universal energies.
This  simple, non-invasive healing system is being utilized in medical centers throughout the world.  Reiki is being taught to  medical practitioners as an adjunct program to aid veterans and individuals suffering from a variety of illnesses.

What to expect at a Reiki Session
You relax, fully clothed in a chair with my hands above you.  There are a series of hand positions employed, but there is no pressure on the body.  The energy flows wherever it is required and can be described as a warm or tingling sensation.  Reiki healing is a pure energy form.  When it is combined with the sincere desire of the one being treated, who is willing to effect a cleansing within their emotional and spiritual consciousness, a healing can occur. Treatment time can vary based on the needs of the client.
