What is Reiki?

REIKI is a modality for easing discomfort, restoring balance and sustaining health through a refined, ancient art of hands-on-healing. The word Reiki is made of two Japanese words: REI which means “God’s Wisdom or the Higher Power” and KI, which is “life force energy.” So, Reiki is actually “spiritually guided life force energy.”

It is a wonderful technique for stress reduction and relaxation that promotes healing. It is administered by “laying on of hands” on or above a fully clothed person. The hand positions focus on the seven major chakras or energy centers of the body. A treatment usually feels warm and relaxing. This positive energy enters one’s body, mind and spirit and therefore, treats the whole person creating many beneficial effects.

In addition, advanced techniques are applied to help heal “cellular memory” or the original cause of pain, illness or mental/emotional imbalance. This “cell-memory” technique helps clear past traumas and unwanted patterns by healing the core issue.

Reiki Benefits

Reiki promotes a state of total relaxation and is an extremely pleasant, holistic method of energy work. Reiki helps to release energy blockages and increase energy flow in the body. Reiki helps because it is so gentle and non-invasive. The energy flows in the quantities necessary for the recipient and is always positive. It only brings to light what the recipient can handle, never more.

NEW Testimonial:

“I feel so blessed and privileged to have met you. It’s not a coincidence that of all the Reiki teachers in the world, I found you! Thank you for all of your guidance and teachings through this process. I never in my wildest dreams thought I would be at a class like I was today. Like the Tarot Card, The Heirophant, when the student is ready, the teacher appears, I just did not know I was ready!”
MD, Teacher
