What is Reiki?

Reiki is a complementary energy healing modality. This means that it works beautifully in combination with other systems and treatments. Reiki reduces anxiety and stress by promoting deep relaxation through the use of gentle touch or no touch at all. The word itself translates to “universal lifeforce energy.” This energy can be applied to many aspects of our lives. Some of the more most common ways that we use Reiki is for physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual healing. By balancing our internal energies we aim to achieve optimal health. This intelligently guided energy is not bound by the concept of time and space. Sending Reiki energy to a past or future event is also possible. There is no limit to what Reiki can do.

What Religion Is Reiki Affiliated With?

Reiki is nondenominational! Even though this system was discovered by a Buddhist Monk, Reiki is not bound to any religion. Regardless of your chosen path, you can still experience the healing effects of Reiki.

Can Reiki replace my current “XYZ” treatment?

Under no circumstances should Reiki be seen as a replacement or substitution for ANY traditional treatment or medication.

What are some of the health benefits?

There are many health benefits that you can experience from a Reiki session. It is important that note that Reiki operates for your highest good. Wherever the energy is needed, it will flow.

  • Relieve pain and tension within the body
  • Promotes deep self-healing
  • Stimulate your body’s immune system.
  • Increased sense of wellness.

What happens in a Reiki session?

For an “in-person” session the client lies on the Reiki table fully clothed and relaxes. Now is the time when the client simply relaxes to soothing music and the smell of incense (optional) as I work my way through various hand positions for the duration of the session. At this juncture, I will place my hands on or above your body at various energy centers. Depending on the flow of energy, I may spend more time in one place or another, but this is normal for each session. That’s it! There is nothing more that is required of you during a Reiki session. Simply lay back, relax, and let the Reiki flow!

In a distance healing session, I will devote time to sending Reiki to you. It is not mandatory to do anything special during this time. However, I would suggest that you choose a time when there is little stress. You may even schedule a time just before bed. Whatever time works best for you is absolutely the best time.

What exactly does Reiki “feel” like?

There is no real way to determine what Reiki will feel like for you. Some clients report feeling a slight heat where the hands are located, while others report a cooling sensation. You may feel a slight tingling sensation within your body as well. Sometimes clients get emotional. There are times that you may feel nothing at all. There is no right or wrong sensation. Reiki flows wherever it is needed within the body and the sensations are almost as varied as the uses for the practice.
