Reiki is a Japanese technique for stress reduction and relaxation that also promotes healing.   It involves the use of “laying on hands” method.  With the client fully clothes, the Reiki Practitioner places their hands on or just above the client’s body while tapping into an unseen energy called “life force energy”.  An experienced Reiki Practitioner or Reiki Master can easily tap into this energy; which is what causes us to feel alive and guides this energy to the receiver. If one’s “life force energy” is low, then we are more  likely to get sick, feel stress or depression.  By increasing this Universal Energy within oneself, we will become more capable of being happier, better balanced and healthier.  The Reiki Practitioner never places his/her hands directly on any “private area’s” of the body.

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.”  A treatment feels like a wonderful glowing radiance that flows through and around you.  Some will experience feelings of hot or cold, pulsating sensations, tingling or feelings of euphoria through meditation. 

Reiki treats the whole person including body, emotions, mind and spirit creating many beneficial effects that includes deep relaxation and feelings of peace, security and wellbeing. While it is a healing energy, beyond the physical benefits, it can also help psychologically to reduce feelings of depression.  This method of treatment promotes healing and also work’s gently and safely in conjunction with all medical treatments.  This gentle process of therapy feeds the entire body and soul.

Reiki is a simple, natural and safe method of spiritual healing and self-improvement that everyone can use. It has been effective in helping virtually every known illness and malady and always creates a beneficial effect and balance. It also works in conjunction with all other medical or therapeutic techniques to relieve side effects and promote recovery.

While Reiki is spiritual in nature, it is not a religion, it has no dogma and there is nothing you must believe in or not. Here is a little history on Reiki:  During a meditation several years after developing Reiki, Dr. Usui decided to add the Reiki Ideals to the  practice of Reiki. The Ideals came in part from the five principles of the Meiji emperor of Japan whom  Dr. Usui admired. The Ideals were developed to add spiritual balance to Usui Reiki. Their purpose is to  help people realize that healing the spirit by consciously deciding to improve oneself is a necessary part of the Reiki healing experience.
