What is Reiki?

Reiki is a traditional Japanese gentle hands on technique to deeply relax you and give you the positive life energy to feel better in our busy stressful world. Reiki is a popular alternative healing therapy because it is extremely safe, proven effective and easy to learn. Reiki is very effective for relieving symptoms such as stress, pain, sadness, and fatigue. Results are always positive and you will have an overall sense of well being.

The word Reiki  is comprised of two Japanese words - Rei which means God's Wisdom and Ki which is Life Force Energy.  Some people may be more familiar with Chi the Chinese equivalent of Ki.   Reiki,  God or spiritually guided life force energy, provides stress reduction and relaxation as it promotes your body's own natural healing.  It is given by a practitioner 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 Ki is low or if there are blockages in the flow, then we are more likely to get sick or feel stress.   Conversely, if it is high, we are more capable of being happy and healthy.   So the practice of Reiki both increases the life force energy and works to raise the vibration of the Ki to remove blockages and restore health by restoring a healthy flow of life energy.  Reiki is safe, effective and scientifically proven therapy  It is often available in hospitals.  The energy is always used for positive benefits. 

A Reiki Treatment

A Reiki Treatment is a done fully clothed on a massage table with soft music playing. The client will lay down, close their eyes and drift off into deep relaxation as the Reiki Practitioner places their hands lightly on various body positions on their head, torso, arms, legs and feet. A full session usually takes from 45 minutes to an hour. Clients often experience seeing colors or patterns and experiencing tingling, heat or other subtle sensations where the practitioner's hands are placed. At the end of the session, clients typically report feeling deeply relaxed and refreshed. It is this deep state of relaxation that allows the body's own healing power to work most effectively.


Aura Scanning

As part of a full treatment, often an aura reading is done. This is a Reiki scan of the aura and can be helpful for detecting illnesses before they manifest in the body or it can be used to learn more about the person. Sometimes I sense gifts or other positive attributes located in the aura. Other times there are things that need to be healed. Since the aura needs to support the physical body, the aura should always be healed and treated so that it in turn can heal and support the body. Healing the aura can actually prevent physical illness by getting to the source before it fully develops as illness in the person.
