About Reiki

About Reiki

Reiki (pronounced Ray-Kee) is a gentle, holistic, hands-on energy healing technique for stress management and deep relaxation. It is based on the principles that: 1) Everything alive is made up of energy. It is a scientifically proven fact that down to our smallest cellular level, we are vibrating beings, and 2) We all have the ability deep within to heal ourselves. In order to do this, our bodies and energy centers (chakras) must be in balance- physically, mentally, emotionally and spiritually.

During a Reiki session, the client will draw through the Reiki practitioner the energy they need to bring themselves into balance so they have a place from which to heal. Reiki heals at the SOURCE of the difficulty, be it a physical problem or underlying emotional/stress related issue.

Although Reiki can be very spiritual, it is not associated with any religion. You do not need to be religious to give or receive the benefits of Reiki. Reiki is conducted fully clothed, lying comfortably under a blanket on a massage table. A session consists of gentle hands-on positions, and the Reiki practitioner may also work to balance your energy field, which radiates from your body. Most people either fall asleep or go to a very deeply relaxed state. Many people also feel warmth or tingling.

Reiki can also gently bring to the surface memories or emotions to be processed or released. Reiki is non-judgmental and unconditionally accepting. A Reiki session generally lasts approximately 60 minutes, but is very individualized. The Reiki healing energy will continue to work through you for 2-3 days, and is very cleansing and detoxifying for your system.

The effects from Reiki are always positive. It works to heal for your highest good and greatest joy. It blends well with all other healing modalities including traditional medicine. It can safely be used on infants, pregnant women, the elderly, terminally ill clients and even animals. In addition to stress management and relaxation, Reiki may be also beneficial for pain relief, boosting your immune system, and diminishing sleep disorders, sinus conditions, muscle spasms, addictions and depression.

It can also be a path for facilitating personal growth. Reiki is very experiential — it really must be FELT for this gentle, but powerful healing approach to be fully appreciated!
