What is Reiki?

Reiki is a Japanese technique for stress reduction and relaxation that also promotes healing. Founded by Dr. Mikao Usui in 1914, Reiki is a technique of natural healing that is administered by "laying on hands" and is based on the idea that an unseen "life force energy" flows through us and is what causes us to be alive. If one's "life force energy" is low, then we are more likely to get sick or feel stress, and if it is high, we are more capable of being happy and healthy.

reiki healing energy therapyThe word Reiki (pronounced Ray Key) is made of two Japanese words - Rei which means "God's Wisdom or the Higher Power" and Ki which is "life force energy".

This technique is a holistic, light-touch, energy-based approach to healing. Working as a support mechanism to the body, Reiki re-establishes a normal energy flow of ki (life force energy) throughout the system, which in turn can enhance and accelerate the body’s innate healing ability. Through a series of hand positions either directly on or just above the body, the energy worker allows for the flow of energy through their body. The client’s body then draws off the amount of energy that is required. The simplicity of a Reiki session may raise some skepticism - however, after experiencing it, many clients keep coming back for more of those relaxing feelings.
Reiki is simple and produces measurable results. It is power, light and love.

What happens during a session?

The client, fully clothed, lies on the treatment table. The practitioner’s hands remain in a stationary position, gently on or slightly above the body through several positions from head to toe. There is no manipulation of the skin or tissue. Reiki is not massage.

Many individuals report feeling either cold, pulsating heat, or a tingling sensation during a session, and most enter a calm, relaxed state. In some, chronic or acute pain can diminish or completely vanish. Sometimes allergies and other infirmities completely disappear.

What can be expected after a session?

Directly after a Reiki session, you should allow yourself time to come fully back into your awareness. It is suggested to sit for a few minutes and sip a cool glass of water.

Over the next little while you may notice that you are detoxifying the waste that has built up in your system. You should increase your water and/or herbal tea intake so that the toxins are flushed out more readily.

Reiki treats the whole person including body, emotions, mind and spirit therefore creating several beneficial effects that include relaxation and feelings of peace, security. Many clients feel an immediate improvement in their level of pain. You may notice a daily increase in your level of energy and alertness as well as a feeling of overall well-being.
