About Reiki

Reiki (pronounced Ray-Key) is an ancient Tibetan healing art. ” Rei” means universal, and the spiritual dimension for the soul or ” Ki” means life force energy that flows through all that is alive. The practice of Reiki was originally founded in Japan by Mikao Usui in the late 20th century. It is the energy that animates us. Reiki Healing is a gentle, non-invasive complementary energy healing method that promotes overall health on all levels – body, mind, and spirit. Reiki is believed to be an alternative medical practice. Reiki Healing is a form of biofield energy treatment of Japanese origin that is helpful on physical, emotional, intellectual, and spiritual levels.  Stress, physical and emotional trauma, and illness restrict the natural flow of Ki life force energy through the body. 

By restoring the flow of Ki in the body, Reiki rejuvenates the body’s ability to relax and de-stress and supports its ability to heal itself. It is concerned with healing through “external energies”. Reiki is a healing technique based on the principle that the therapist can channel energy into the patient through touch, to activate the natural healing processes of the patient’s body and restore physical and emotional well-being.

What is Reiki?

Reiki healing is a Japanese healing art that helps the body to engage its inner resources and promotes balance. It is a gentle, non-manipulative light touch that can help bring a client into a deep state of relaxation. In this state, levels of cortisol and adrenaline drop and it is easy for the client’s body to relax and focus on self-healing.

Reiki healing is offered through light, non-invasive touch with the therapist’s hands placed and held on a series of locations on the head and front and back of the torso.

What are the Benefits of Reiki?

Unlike many modern-day remedies, Reiki works directly on restoring the balance on all levels and works directly on the problem and condition instead of just masking or relieving symptoms.

Reiki can help the recipient achieve a state of peace which strengthens their spiritual well-being. Reiki can help the patient reach a heightened state of relaxation which facilitates the body to better use its energy to naturally heal itself.

Routine Reiki treatments can help balance the mind and emotions of the patient which allows them to address issues in their life with more clarity and focus.

Reiki works to relieve pain from many chronic conditions such as sciatica, migraines, and arthritis.

Reiki helps the body attain its natural balance and can help reduce side effects from medical treatments or speed healing after surgery.
