What is Reiki?

Reiki is a healing energy therapy originated by Mikao Usui in Japan.

The word reiki comes from the Japanese work (Rei) which means “Universal Life Force” and (Ki) which means energy.  Reiki is a hands-on healing system as well as an energy source that restores energetic alignment and balance and promotes healing on physical, mental, emotional and spiritual levels.  Reiki does not “fix” but induces the relaxation response and puts the body in the best place for healing.   Reiki benefits accumulate over time.

Reiki is a complement to traditional care; it is not massage; nor a substitute for medical care.

How Does it work?

Reiki is life energy that flows through all living things. Practitioners channel universal life force energy, connecting with the client’s energy centers to have their energy be free flowing and strong (wellness).  They work to remove stagnation and blockages that lead to symptoms of physical or emotional illness. The body’s innate intelligence regulates the energy amount and flow.  What is in excess, Reiki lessens (like pain), and what is lacking Reiki increases and fills.
