What is Reiki?

Reiki, a gentle but powerful therapy that works with the body’s innate healing capabilities. It helps to promote and accelerate the body’s healing process and restore balance on the physical, mental and emotional levels.

The body receiving Reiki will use Reiki in the area that needs attention most at the time. As Reiki does not act on the body but is used by the body, no diagnosis is required for Reiki. It is complementary with any type of treatments or therapies, both natural or conventional. It is safe for people of all ages, including infants and children; all life stages, including pregnancy; and all health conditions.

Reiki is not a belief system or religion and there is no spiritual aspect to Reiki that needs to be believed in order for it to work. Anyone can learn Reiki through a Reiki Master.

Benefits of Reiki:
– Reduces stress and anxiety
– Increases relaxation and calmness
– Enhances personal awareness, focus and clarity (similar to meditation)
– Increases energy and overall health
– Accelerates recovery for muscles and injuries
– Aids in pain management
– Helps emotional based issues that require release
– Does not drain personal energy

Our linage goes back to Mikao Usui and is also known as Usui Reiki.

What to expect during a Reiki healing session?

The recipient will lay on a massage table fully clothed. The practitioner places her hands on or near different areas of the recipient’s body. The recipient may feel sensations during the session such as heat, coldness, tingling, numbness and buzzing. Sensations or the lack of it do not affect the healing process. Most commonly, recipients feel relaxed and refreshed after a session.

NOTE: The practitioner does not diagnose conditions, prescribe medications or interfere with treatment of a licensed medical professional.
