Reiki Energy Healing
What is Reiki?
A Japanese technique of “Laying on of hands” for healing and stress reduction. Reiki aids in unblocking and improving Ki (life force) energy. It is a safe, gentle and effective method that works to balance the subtle energies within the body. It has no negative side effects and works to complement any other treatment a person may be receiving. Reiki addresses all levels: physical, mental, emotional and spiritual. The result is often increased energy and a peaceful feeling of well being. It has been effective in helping virtually every known illness and malady and always creates a beneficial effect. It has been successfully taught to thousands of people of all ages and backgrounds. Energy healing has been used for thousands of years and this system was re-developed by Mikao Usui in the early 1900’s and brought to the United States in the 1930’s. Reiki is a very simple yet powerful technique that can be easily learned by anyone.
What does Reiki mean?
Reiki is a Japanese word meaning “Universal Life Energy”. Reiki is a method of activating and balancing the life force energy (also known as ki, prana, or chi) present in all living things. The word Reiki is made of two Japanese words – Rei which means “Higher Wisdom or the Higher Power” and Ki which is “life force energy”. It has an intelligence of its own and knows where to go within a person’s body. You can never receive too much or “overdose” on Reiki energy. .
How Does it work?
Within a Reiki session you lay on a massage table fully clothed. Light hand placement techniques are used on the body to channel this energy to organs and glands and align the energy centers in our body. The therapist gently and slowly passes her hands over your entire body scanning first for those areas that need assistance and then allowing her hands to stay in one position for a period of time over an affected area to transfer the healing energy. The Therapist acts as a conduit so the energy flows through the therapist and directed to the client. The result is feelings of peace, calm and pain relief.
What are the benefits of Reiki?

Who Can Learn Reiki?
Anyone one can learn Reiki, the ability to learn Reiki is not dependent on intellectual capacity. Nor does one require training in any other form of healing. It is simply passed on from the teacher to the student through a process called an attunement.
What is an Attunement?
Reiki is not taught in traditional learning methods of book study and testing. Although, there is important and necessary information the student must learn prior to receiving the ability to perform Reiki. During the attunement/initiation process the Reiki master/teacher creates an open “channel” within the student for the cosmic or universal life energy to flow from the top of the students head and through this “channel” the energy flows down through the body and back out through the hands when Reiki is “given”
Once you have received a Reiki attunement you will have Reiki and the ability to channel it for healing for the remainder of your life. It does not wear off and you never lose it.
