What is Reiki…

Reiki is a holistic, light-touch, energy-based healing modality.  Mikao Usui introduced an energy-based healing system called Usui Reiki Ryoho in Japan during the late 1800’s to early 1900’s.  Pronounced Ew-suey Ray-key Rye-oh-ho, translated from Japanese, means Usui Reiki Healing Method.

Reiki re-establishes a normal flow of energy (Ki) within the body to heal all levels – physical, emotional, mental and spiritual (Note: life-force energy is also known as Chi/Qi [China], Prana [India] or Mana [Hawaii], etc.).  Our physical body is sensitive to the energy of thoughts and emotions.  When we experience negative feelings or thoughts about ourselves, develop negative thought patterns and beliefs, or experience a physical or emotional shock, this affects our energy field, creating emotional and physiological blockages that eventually disrupt our health.

Reiki frees and aligns the body’s energy system, which in turn releases pain on all levels – physical, emotional, mental and spiritual.  Reiki aids the body in releasing stress and tension by creating deep relaxation and it restores energy balance and vitality by relieving the physical and emotional effects of unreleased stress.  It gently and effectively opens blocked meridians (energy pathways) and chakras (energy centers) and clears the energy bodies, leaving you feeling relaxed and at peace.

For Reiki to be more effective, the client should be open minded and willing to take responsibility to alter unsupportive life patterns or issues to create their own healing.  Reiki is simple and provides measurable results - in essence, it is power, light and love.

Reiki is a simple, natural and safe method of energy healing and self-improvement that everyone can use.  It has been effective in helping virtually every known illness and malady and always creates a beneficial effect.  It is never a substitute for medical care but works in conjunction with all other medical or therapeutic techniques to relieve side effects and promote recovery.

What happens in a Reiki Session?

A typical Reiki session is offered to a fully clothed recipient who is lying on a treatment table or sitting comfortably supported in a chair. Reiki is offered through light, non-invasive touch with the practitioner's hands placed and held on a series of locations on the head and front and back of the torso or hovering just above these areas where touch is not invited.

The Reiki experience is subjective, changeable, and sometimes very subtle. People often experience heat or a light tingling or pulsing sensation in the practitioner's hands or throughout the body, but sometimes recipients feel other sensations as well. Many people often comment how comforting they find the experience of Reiki to be. In any event, each session is different and unique to each individual so the best way to truly understand what a Reiki session is like is to experience it for yourself!


What is a Reiki Attunement?

Unlike other healing arts, reiki is passed from master to student through a reiki attunement - or ceremony - that allows the student to connect to the universal reiki source. The attunement allows you to become a vessel through which reiki energy can flow freely, and move reiki energy for yourself and others. While you can read about reiki in a book and learn hand positions, until you have been attuned to channel reiki, you cannot truly practice reiki.
