Reiki is a Japanese technique originally developed by Japanese Buddhist Mikao Usui in 1922 for stress reduction and relaxation that also promotes healing. It is administered by "laying on hands" and is based on the idea that an unseen "life force energy" flows through us and is what causes us to be alive. If one's "life force energy" is low, then we are more likely to get sick or feel stress, and if it is high, we are more capable of being happy and healthy. 

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. It also works in conjunction with all other medical or therapeutic techniques to relieve side effects and promote recovery.

Treatments usually occur in person; however, you may choose to book a distance session if you are too far away to come for a treatment in person, or if your condition prevents you from visiting.    

Frequently Asked Questions

How is a Reiki treatment given?

In a standard treatment, Reiki energy flows from the practitioner’s hands into the client.  The client is usually laying on a massage table but treatments can also be given while the client is seated or even standing.  The client remains fully clothed.  The practitioner places his/her hands on or near the client’s body in a series of hand positions.  The whole treatment usually lasts an hour.

What does a treatment feel like?

What one experiences during a Reiki treatment varies from person to person.  However, feelings of deep relaxation are usually felt by all.  In addition, many feel a wonderful glowing radiance that flows through and surrounds them.  As the Reiki energy encourages one to let go of all tension, anxiety, fear or other negative feelings, a state of peace and well-being is experienced.  Some drift off to sleep or report floating outside their bodies or have visions and other mystical experiences.  At the end of the treatment, one feels refreshed with a more positive, balanced outlook.

Are there any side effects from a Reiki treatment?

Most of the time a person will feel relaxed and uplifted by a Reiki treatment.  However, sometimes a person will have what is called a healing crisis.  As a person’s vibration goes up, toxins that have been stored in the body will be released into the blood stream to be filtered by the liver and kidneys and removed from the system.  When this happens, sometimes a person can get a headache or stomach ache or feel weak.  If this happens, it is a good idea to drink more water, eat lighter meals and get more rest.  The body is cleansing as part of the healing process so this is a good sign.
