What is Reiki?

Reiki, pronounced as ‘ray key’ (rei”=universal/spiritual; “ki”=life force energy) is an eastern method of natural healing that supports the body’s inherent ability to balance and renew. It is a safe non-invasive energy practice that brings relaxation and healing to our body, mind and spirit.  It is a practice that can be used daily to promote good health and wellbeing, as well as a treatment that compliments traditional healthcare.  It is the sacred balance of body, mind and spirit.

Reiki is based on the philosophy that there is a universal energy that flows around and within us.  This universal energy is the life force that sustains the health of our organs, tissues and cells; it is what creates life within us. We can influence, rejuvenate, stimulate and balances our life force energy (ki) bringing balance and calmness to our life. Any changes in our (ki) within the body influences our health. When our (ki) is low, we are more likely to get sick or feel stress, and when it is high, we tend to be more capable of being happy and healthy. Reiki practitioners are taught how to access this energy and assist its flow throughout the body to facilitate deep relaxation and to improve overall general health.

Reiki is used in many settings including, at home for personal health care, private practice, holistic wellness centers, hospitals, in-home care, hospices and “end care”.

Reiki is used to bring calmness to a situation, relaxation to tense bodies and clarity for stressed minds.  It can influence you and also the environment you live in bringing peace and balance.  When you are calm, centered and grounded, when you are relaxed and rested, the days’ frustrations and chaos will seem less daunting as well as less demanding physically, emotionally and intellectually.  Reiki is a natural way to achieve that relaxation and calmness.

There are many benefits to having Reiki be part of your healthcare routine. Many Reiki clients have experienced that Reiki treatments reduce, stress, anxiety, chronic pain, depression, reduce the negative side effects from radiation, chemotherapy and prescribed medicines, improve sleep, enhance wellbeing, support recovery from substance abuse, accelerate surgical recovery, improve digestion and relaxation, In addition to, heightening self-awareness and intuition.

During a Reiki session a client remains fully clothed while comfortably reclining on a massage table or gently seated in a chair. A Reiki treatment proceeds with the practitioner placing their hands on or slightly above the body generally covering the head, the front and back of the torso, knees and feet.  A treatment can last from 30 to 60 minutes. Most recipients feel warmth or tingling in the area being treated.  The most noticeable immediate effect of the treatment is a state of deep relaxation combined with a general feeling of well-being.

A Reiki session can also be given as a Distance Healing Session. The client schedules an appointment time and calls the practitioner to begin the session. A distance healing session is for 30 to 60 minutes with ten minutes being used as talk time and 20 to 50 for healing time.

Reiki is a gentle natural healing therapy that is used worldwide to promote balance for the body, mind and spirit.
