What is Reiki?

The word Reiki (pronounced Ray-Key) is a Japanese kanji for universal life-force energy.

Reiki is a Japanese holistic, light-touch, energy-based means of hands-on healing. Reiki re-establishes a normal energy flow of ki (life force energy) throughout the body, which in turn can enhance and accelerate the body's own natural healing ability. Using a series of hand positions either directly on or just above the body, the energy worker channels the flow of energy through their body. The client's body then draws off the amount of energy that is required.  The energy exchanged is neither from the practitioner, nor is it harvested from the client.  It is pure, light, powerful, gentle, and loving Universal Energy.  Reiki transcends the man-made divisions of religion, economics, location, gender, and race.

What is involved in a Reiki Treatment?

Reiki is not massage.  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. Some practitioners do not use the prescribed hand positions, preferring to use a more intuitive approach. The private areas are worked on 4-6" above the body. There is no manipulation of the skin or tissue.

Many individuals report feeling warmth or sometime 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. It's different for each person.

What is important to remember is that, whatever is troubling us, we didn't get this way overnight and we won't recover overnight, either. Reiki is not any more magical than any other modality or allopathic medicine. Healing takes commitment and it takes time... one moment at a time.

How many sessions do I need?

To begin with, three or four sessions over ten to fourteen days are recommended to remove entrenched blocks in your energy system; then once a week or once every two weeks until the issue has been resolved. You will begin to notice some improvement after the first session.. Dis-ease generally begins in the energy field so it is important to keep our subtle bodies healthy using Reiki, and our physical bodies healthy with good nutrition and exercise. 

How is Reiki a holistic approach to my well being?

It is strongly recommended that you do not discontinue any medications or session plan your medical practitioner or other holistic healer has deemed necessary, unless you first speak with them personally. Reiki energy works in concert with all other forms of therapy. It is a wonderful complement to other treatments. We can all work together to get you feeling healthier, happier and more whole. This is the holistic approach.

The Reiki energy goes to exactly where it is needed so a Reiki Practitioner never needs to diagnose nor prescribe - nor does ethics or law allow them to.
