What is Reiki?



'rei' = universal

'ki' = life energy

Reiki (pronounced 'raykey') is a spiritual healing art - the practice of transmitting healing energy through the hands.  

Reiki is believed to have originated in Tibet thousands of years ago, and current Reiki practice can be traced to the teachings of Mikao Usui in the early 20th century in Japan.

Reiki is a subtle and effective form of energy healing which brings about healing on physical, mental, emotional and spiritual levels.  It is based on the philosophy that there is a universal energy that supports the body's inherent self-healing abilities.

Reiki is used for stress relief, relaxation, and symptom reduction in efforts to improve overall well-being.  Recipients often experience a deep state of relaxation and a general feeling of well-being during treatment.  

Reiki is used in many settings including hospitals, hospices, as well as in private practice.  It is a complimentary therapy which works well alongside orthodox health-care and natural remedies, expanding your treatment options.  


A Typical Treatment:

During a Reiki session you remain fully clothed (loose, comfortable clothing is suggested) while laying on a massage table or seated in a chair.

Reiki treatment proceeds with the practitioner placing their hands on the recipient in various positions. Some practitioners use a non-touching method, where the hands are held a few inches away from the recipient's body.

The recipient often feels warmth or tingling in the area being treated, even with the non-touching approach. A state of deep relaxation and a general feeling of well-being is usually the most noticeable and immediate effect of a Reiki healing treatment.
