Learn about Reiki

Everything is energy and that is all there is to it. Match the frequency of the reality you want and you can not help but get that reality. It can be no other way. ​​It is not philosophy. It is physics. – Albert Einstein

We live in a demanding, fast paced environment which for many people means high physical and emotional stress all the time. Often we don’t realize our bodies and minds are chronically stressed until we experience exhaustion, anxiety, pain or illness . When your life energy is strong, balanced and free flowing, you are healthy and can more easily deal with stress. Reiki treatments help bring your mind, body and spirit back to a more balanced state to promote self healing and regular treatments help you maintain it longer.

What is Reiki?

Reiki energy was rediscovered by Dr. Mikao Usui in Japan during the early 20th century and brought to the United States in the 1930’s. Reiki is translated as Universal Life Energy that is present in all living things. It is the Japanese word pronounced (ray-key) for the energy that flows within and around us, and nourishes the organs and cells of our body, supporting them in their vital functions.

When the flow of life force energy is disrupted, through stress, physical or emotional injury conscious or unconscious it causes diminished function and energetic blockages in the tissues of our physical body, leaving it vulnerable to illness.

Reiki is a holistic, non-invasive deep relaxation treatment.  The effect of this treatment, that involves gentle touch, is to reduce stress, pain and tension while bringing a person’s system back into balance on all levels:  physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual. Reiki treatments stimulate the body’s own innate wisdom to promote self healing. Reiki works as a complementary treatment and supports any and all conventional medical treatments.

The Reiki practitioner gently places his/her hands in different positions on, or slightly above, the body while the fully clothed client sits in a chair or lies on massage table.   As stress and tension are reduced, the body begins to relax and release the trauma, illness, or imbalances returning the body, mind, and spirit to harmony, equilibrium and calmness.

Reiki treatments are adaptable to any environment and everyone can benefit.  Reiki is appropriate and helpful for people of any age and with any condition-newborns, children, teens, adults, and seniors.
