More about Reiki

Reiki is a Japanese hands-on healing method that works with the body's natural energy, delivering an overall sense of peace. Reiki therapy works on all levels of physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual elements.

Traditional Usui Reiki Session

Traditional Usui Reiki Sessions offer a deep experience of Reiki using Japanese methods as we understand and practice them today based on research and study conducted by those who have traveled, studied, and worked extensively with Japanese Masters.  The traditional Reiki session offers a singular experience of “pure and simple” Reiki, often resulting in release from stress, re-balancing of the body systems, calming the mind, and promoting healthy sleep.

What is Reiki?

Reiki (pronounced ray-key) is an ancient Japanese healing art, Reiki means "Universal life energy"

How does Reiki work?

Everything that is alive has energy that is flowing through it. This energy nourishes the organs and cells of the body, supporting them in their vital functions. When this flow of energy is impeded, it may cause diminished function in one or more of the organs and tissues of the physical body. Frans and Bronwen Stiene, authors of the Reiki Source Book, describe this perfectly in the following analogy, “Envision a free-flowing river. This beautiful river is like energy flowing easily down through the body. Occasionally, a pebble, or even a rock, will fall into that river, making the flow of the water a little more difficult. These pebbles are human worries, fear, and anger, and each pebble builds on top of the other. Soon, there is only a trickle of water running in that once beautiful free-flowing river. And so, it is with energy in the human body. Energy flow can be obstructed so much that at this point physical pain may be experienced”.

Reiki helps to restore and balance the energy in the body, allowing us to better heal ourselves. The recipient of Reiki is an active participant during their session.  They do this by setting an intention to be open to receiving whatever they might need most from the session. The Reiki practitioner is trained to facilitate the flow of energy and does not dictate or manipulate it, but allows it to go where it is needed.

What does a Reiki Healing Session feel like?

The experience during a Reiki treatment varies from person to person. Reiki energy encourages you to let go of all tension, anxiety, or fear so that a state of peace can be experienced. Many undergo deep relaxation and feel a wonderful glowing radiance that flows through and surrounds them. At the end of the treatment, you will feel refreshed with a more positive, balanced outlook.
